@fabel that's my nana and my brother! my nana died this summer (the pic is from 2007) so it is extra special to me now.
@stuffisthings 14th and u? i recognize it too! (not my photo though)
@shadowkitty me too! i think maybe the trick is that you don't splash up a whole handful of water -- just kind of extra-damp palms. it occasionally gets a little splashy but i've never had to wipe my arms/elbows/the floor...
@Countess Maritza Depending on where you actually live now, you may be able to vote in person anyway! Most/all states (I think) let you cast a "provisional ballot" even if you're not registered, you probably just need proof of address and to sign a statement vowing you didn't vote anywhere else. I live in DC and my boyfriend early-voted that way this weekend. (My perm-address is still in Colorado so I am holding onto that swing state status for dear life).
@Ophelia Seconded. Thank you so much for sharing this.
Also, my friend knows some people that once did a "24" marathon that included an ACTUAL MARATHON. Like they would watch one episode of "24", run a mile, watch one episode, run a mile, etc. For 24 hours.
@professionalmess yessssss. let's also talk a lot about "training." "oh, i'm doing a half [season] this weekend, then a long run [of episodes] next week, and then pacing myself [with sitcoms] right before the big race [of tv]."
@redheaded&crazie I saw ACTUAL Emma Watson once! ...but only because I sprinted across campus to where I knew she was. My friend had gotten a text that EW was taking a tour of our school (this is when she was originally looking at US colleges) and we literally ran out our door and over to the quad she was touring, and then we had to stand awkwardly and pretend we were waiting for a "friend" to come out of a random doorway while we actually stared at her and some tour guide telling her about a statue.
Then later that weekend I saw Daniel Radcliffe (in Equus, I only ever see celebrities on purpose because I am terrible at recognizing people) and decided that if I managed to cross paths with Rupert Grint in the next few days I could probably just go ahead and die because that was as good as it was going to get.
@Lurkasaurus @anitabath hola other former synchro-ers! (i was super recreational, just fun pool summers, but it counts!) i loved being like "Okay, YOU get in and try it" and then watching people slowly drown trying to do a ballet leg. HA.
@Lurkasaurus yayyy knox crunchies <3 also yay(?) for inevitably breaking off a lot of your hair leaving a one-inch frizz halo that lasts the rest of the school year, growing out just in time to do it all over again next summer.
