On This Moving Animated Short Features a Fiona Apple Cover of "Pure Imagination," Is an Ad for Chipotle
oh my god, those sad cows with their big eyes!
I don't even like pigeons (they seem to constantly poop on me) but I just got a little emotional about mary the pigeon. thanks for your service, mary!
I work in advertising (a field that is, in my experience, still extremely sexist). my creative partner is also a woman and as a female team, we get a LOT of shit. just the other day, we were taken aside for what could only be described as a "talking to" for not being nicer and more accommodating about a bullshit situation. I sincerely doubt that any man in my office has ever been told to be nicer and to smile more when being asked to do something that is totally out of the scope of his expertise, as we were. it's because we are girls and we are not supposed to be firm or to stand up for ourselves. we're supposed to smile and say "yes sir, may I have another." (obviously, I'm still really mad about this. yeesh)
nothing evokes those gorgeous, gauzy Michigan summers-by-a-lake for me more than Bruce Coville's Nina Tanleven series. The Ghost Wore Gray and The Ghost in the Third Row were some of my favorite childhood books and traveled up north with me each summer until they absolutely fell apart.
I refer to this stupid game as my husband's mistress. I think he loves "Candy" more than me.
@rallisaurus I watched the first three episodes last night...AND DREAMT ABOUT BEING IN PRISON! I really hope that doesn't continue, because I am definitely going to watch the rest of the show this week.
@fondue with cheddar maybe your parents are nice people who don't have perv brains? people who don't see anything wrong with ""You know how much I love you Daddy/But if you don't mind I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time." god, I need to stop. I'm grossing myself out.
Butterfly Kisses. the funniest/creepiest lyrics of all time, such as:"Sweet 16 today/ She's looking like her mama a little more everyday/One part woman, the other part girl./To perfume and make-up from ribbons and curls/Trying her wings out in a great big world." so molest-y! and that's not even the worst part.
STAY AWAY from African Cats. I was really excited to see it because yay cats! and even more yay, big cats! but I think I only made it half way before I was sobbing under a blanket on the couch and my husband had to turn it off. nothing makes me cry harder than Up, but stupid African Cats was pretty close.
@karenb in my irritation at revisiting these regional clashes, I probably didn't explain myself as well as I could have :) I meant that I say them the same and he says them as two different names. so I could be very clearly speaking about erin the girl, but because I say the two names the same, he gets "confused" about which one I am referring to.
