"Neg-ron-i Season! Neg-ron-i Season! Whoooooo!"
Wonderful advice as always from Polly. Also this resonates strongly with Sugar's advice from the original Write Like a Motherfucker column, which is applicable even if the thing you're trying to do isn't writing:
This was lovely. Also, Grayson Perry's Map of Nowhere is a fascinating contemporary riff on the Hereford Mappa Mundi.
@Titania It is very good that I am the only person here right now, because I am howling with laughter and delight.
I really do work nearby. I get off work at 6. Let's do this!
@Brooklyn Battery I love(d) Mind Erasers!
I bet Bemelmann's does a fantastic Mind Eraser. Hmmm. I work nearby. I'm not a fan of the pianist (although he drowns out the sound of your drinking companions, so if you're out with a hedge-fund type that's usually a good thing.) Hmmm. Maybe I'll go after work and see how many men old enough to be my grandpa will hit on me? Who wants to come? Mind erasers, Long Island iced teas, and banana daiquiris for all!
The only advantage to the $1-for-the-new-card scam: fewer treacherous discarded Metrocards littering the station floors. Those fuckers are slippery! Like evil, vitaminless banana peels.
Oh joy. It's Spargelzeit!
@doraleigh I totally cannot wait to get fitted for my caftan! (I'm 37: does that mean it's time! Whooooo! Although I have a soft spot in my heart, actually, for Hilo Hattie muumuus.)
