I am overly fond of Choire Sicha. That other one is okay too, I guess.
@ejcsanfran I always thought of Balk as more of the straight Ted Allen, what with the fucking steak and all, but I like your interpretation so much better.
Obviously it's impossible to pick a favorite part, but "Who are these janitors on the front page of the New York Times?" is, like, yessssssssssssssssssssssss
I love that you still use the provincial 'mum' :)
@Gef the Talking Mongoose Ohhhhhh myyy Godddddddddddd did I ever tell you about the time I decided to try to start talking with a vocal fry instead of my '90s-style uptalk so I could sound younger??????? (SPOILER ALERT: It didn't go so well.)
@Gef the Talking Mongoose Do you know that my autocorrect turns "Choire" into "CHOIRE"??? I don't know how or why but I will never tell it differently.
@Gef the Talking Mongoose I'm getting LOADED on the Amtrak and trying not to mouth off to someone on Twitter and I'm kind of thinking I might just hijack these comments and let it rip. We're delayed outside of Providence. Gonna get another vino. This should end well.
Uch 'jewess' is so great and it makes me so upset when I can't decide if I love it more or less than I love 'editrix'. Also I'm STILL telling people that I don't swear in my writing "because Choire told me I was better when I didn't swear" but OFFICIALLY SPEAKING AS OF RIGHT NOW fuuuuuuck that! (No I basically still won't swear in my writing because Choire told me I was better when I didn't swear okay fine you caught me.)
@Maura Johnston I actually have one of those! (Because I'm trying to bring back the old internet, I guess?)
@Gef the Talking Mongoose MEEEEEEEEEE TOOOOOOOOO SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE (especially because I HATE the New Internet and want to support any and all attempts to bring back the old one that I loved so much.)
@hockeymom I just adore this new ("new" HEH) Cruel Choire. "I'm retiring, loyal subjects!" "We're taking away your comment section, loyal subjects!" "I've made arrangements for the offing of Bill Clinton, loyal subjects!"
The best part is that we take it.
