In other news, who's coming to GayBiGayGay?!
Y'all know about LARP Trek, right?
@Gef the Talking Mongoose Yes, this was incredibly well-written! Such a joy to read.
@scrooge I have heard "cunny" used as well. Interestingly, "coney" is an alternate term for rabbit. FULL CIRCLE?
Wow. Those were great answers to both questions.
"Merging with another person until you become each other's spirit animals subtly changes you in a bunch of ways that quietly annoy everyone else. The metamorphosis chips away at any individual quirks that might abrade the relationship. Gone is the part of you that used to make up silly songs in the shower or found kombucha kind of disgusting. Instead, there's this new you, smoothed-out and cocooned. You forget what you’re really like, having opted for what one person likes you to be like."
How did you knoooooooooooooooooooow?
The Register Citizen?! That was my local paper growing up in Connecticut! Wooooohooo.
Never saw a Melonhead, though.
Another spooky Connecticut story is about Dudleytown, which is very close to where I grew up. I actually visited there and [*SPOILER ALERT*] it was not that scary. Dark and lonely, yes, but not really very scary.
"You may not be Tolstoy, but Tolstoy wasn't Sendak, either."

Thanks for this info about Ursula Nordstrom. That's amazing that she had a hand in so many classic stand-bys of children's literature.
Also, LW #2, think about the fact that you were in a relationship with your ex for two years. You waited one month after your break-up, and you're now in a relationship with someone else. It's gonna take more than four months to forget about someone you spent two years with.
I will vote for Lillian because of her Pit Bull!
