New images have appeared all over town, bearing the image of a turkey sandwich and the single world “harlot" in large block letters. These billboards have caused some confusion, both due to their ambiguous message, and to the fact that the entire structure of the billboards materialized overnight. - Welcome to Night Vale

On No Excuses: Responding To One-Handed Reviews

@beetnemesis @TheGenYgirl Really? Because what I enjoyed about the heyday of the 'pin was that if someone said [paraphrasing] "I totally agree that looking at these photos constitutes sexual assault/perpetuating Peeping Tom behavior, but I looked at them anyway, lol so ~subversive~" that kind of bullshit wasn't tolerated/was pointed out as bullshit.

Maybe you guys would be happier on one of the upskirt forums on reddit?

On How My Obsession With Furnishing A Future Put Me Nearly $40,000 In Debt

@Pompis Hopping in this thread just to see if anyone comes up with a great answer for the object-lust, because boy howdy, do I have it.

On 12 Books to Creep Yourself Out With

@Madeline Shoes YES! I love her books and am planning to reward myself with rereading all of them once I finish this semester. I think The Likeness is actually my favorite as well, just because of that lingering sadness/wistfulness (ugh, that whole last longing paragraph!), whereas In the Woods would be my favorite(& is definitely the creepiest of them all for me), but I'm too frustrated by the unanswered question(s?).

On 12 Books to Creep Yourself Out With

Oh, yay, I love creepy books. Two of my favorites are In the Woods (Tana French - Irish murder mystery) and The Little Stranger (Sarah Waters - period ghost story), neither of which I have at my apartment right now, of course, now that I want to reread them both!

On Drinking Up and Sitting Down With the Men's Men at the Nashville Whiskey Festival

@zamboni it's sadly a "drinking alcohol on these anti-depressants makes my brain suck up even more of the anti-depressants/makes the anti-depressants even more effective, so i feel faint/sick/sweat all over, even the bottoms of my feet/am useless for hours afterwards". i tried once, with 1/4 of a bottle of beer, and it was a no-go. fortunately, this evening i had a couple capfuls of my bf's maker's mark in my coke (just enough to get the smell of it, if not much of the taste) and that seems to have been okay. so ..teeny, teeny tiny sips, i might be able to get away with, which, yay!!! i miss getting drunk, but i miss the flavor/smell more, so i'll take whatever i can get.

On A Guide to Eating Very Particular Feelings, Part II

The last one also applies to news you're keeping from yourself, although I have been eating breakfast (white toast, gently scrambled egg, sliced & very browned sausages, sriracha, and a big glass of milk) for most meals instead of cake. Maybe now is the time to transition to cake. I think Mom has some in the fridge.

On Friday Open Thread

@rosaline Tastybites are pretty great for camping. My ex and I took, at various points, the jaipur vegetables, the chana masala, the kashmir spinach, the madras lentils, and the aloo palak to Big Sur with us, and with some boil in a bag rice and beer, they make for a really great campfire-side dinner.
