All tomfoolery, all the time.
Ahhh seeing everyone commenting here is making me nostalgic.. Welcome aboard Haley!!!
Jia, I haven't commented here in quite some time, but I always kept reading, and I just want to say, good luck, godspeed, and I've truly enjoyed reading everything you've written (and all the music you've recommended).
Now go kick ass and take names. Can't wait to see what you do next.
ETA: I will miss your alt-text game, way to close it out with this gem.
I AM LUCKY THAT ALL OF YOU READ ME FOR SO LONG AND MY DOG AND I WILL C U IN NYC IN LIKE A MONTH
I love the idea of focusing on petty enthusiasms, looking forward to seeing how the Hairpin develops over the next few months. Welcome!
I'm withholding judgment until I see a Haley Mlotek-brand Dickhole Mind Control post. There's probably already one on Adult but I don't want to expend the effort to look
@frigwiggin I am happy to see you again!
@frigwiggin There is almost no reference I love more than one to the swallows at Capistrano.
Raising my bleachitini to a revival of petty enthusiasms on The Hairpin!
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)
"I thought there was steak?"
"Why would you think that? Cause you're a man?"
"I thought there was steak..."
@Caity Remember to mime putting the ice cubes in the cup and make the *clink* sound to complete the joke!
