On Friday Open Thread

@zeytin I read both, though I admit to checking the Hairpin a bit less often these days. However, I still like looking at the OT here (even though I'm always, always two days late) and you're right, it's a shame that many of the old commenters have almost completely left here. A few of them have changed their Hairpin names too, which probably adds to the "everyone knows each other" vibe. Now that the spamming is mostly under control, I have been coming back here a lot more, because the people are still awesome here (Like you guys!). I hope people either start to return and check in, or a new, similarly awesome 'Pintariat builds up.

On What Character Are You?

@adorable-eggplant Ha! I regularly think of my partner as the cleaning robot from Wall-E. He just cannot deal with a stray spoon.

I am definitely a hobbit but not a brave one. More like Bilbo in the beginning of The Hobbit and he forgets his handkerchief at home and wants to turn the group around to go get it.

@adorable-eggplant ugh, my resolution was to not buy any shoes in 2014 and it's already bumming me out. SO many sales and amazing deals! But I DON'T NEED NO MORE DAMN SHOES. However, I would absolutely love to justify a life or death reason why I need canary yellow peep-toe heels in Britain, where it rains and I have to walk everywhere. But I neeeeeed them :c

On The Returned Is the Best Show on Television

@j-i-a Wait but. SO one of the shows I heard about is one called The Returned, but it's based in China/Inner Mongolia, with a similar premise, but not based on the show. Does this mean there are two more Returneds in progress???noooo

On Is Enya Feminist Enough?

Thia is the best thing I've read on the Hairpin in a long-ass time.

Also, Enya can do whatever she wants. I forget she is a human and not an ANGEL OF THE ELVES.

On Teenage Girls, as Imagined By an 8-Year-Old in 1991

This reminds me of the recent "yearbook" I came across that I must have come by in the eighth grade but it was alllll about how I wanted to make out with my classmate Charlie, and "do it" with Dean Cain. I mean sure why not.
