@Attractive Nuisance In general I agree, but this particular link is good because the mother is the Voice of Reason, pointing out how inanely stupid it is to 1) look for poetry in spam postings and 2) be disappointed to find out those postings were manufactured by humans in the first place as "art."

As another former camp counselor, I just have to say YES THIS!

On Thank You So Much For Being With Me Tonight to Celebrate My Twenty-Five-And-Twelve-Month Birthday
@Bostonienne 25 and 144 months! What am I even doing here? Where did I put my reading glasses? What are those damn kids doing on my lawn again??
@chrysopoeia This is pretty much the Porn for Women plot from 30 Rock--a TV channel with a handsome man asking about your day and making affirming comments.
@Rock and Roll Ken Doll My friend who has backyard chickens in Queens recently told me that shelters are getting inundated with hens, because they only lay for a few years but can live for much longer. So people don't want them anymore when the eggs stop coming, but also see them as pets and don't want to kill and eat them, as would be the standard course of action on a traditional farm. It's a sad (and I think bougie) situation. To my friend's credit, he is keeping and caring for his pet chickens even though only one is still laying and he gets an egg or two a week, at most.
Based on the vitriol unleashed by this topic in the past, I'm going to say that there are a fair number of Pinners who would answer:
90% seething in anger about their totally inconsiderate friend who is always always always late
Meanwhile, the late friend's answer is:
100% mentally repeating "shit shit dammit shit, MOVE FASTER, BUS/TRAIN/TRAFFIC!
Full disclosure: I'm the friend.

@OhMarie It's actually the one bunny death that keeps getting shown as a clip again and again and again....
@j-i-a The Atlantic's In Focus is not a bad place to start, at least visually. It's an awesome photo blog--timely and striking.
