@deepomega What do you THINK I'm thinking of??
Haha, burned by the slow scroll -- "oh, hot guy, nice, oh, okay, hm, wait, okay, he's holding an owl, hmm never mind."
On The Question
Wonderful, Maria, thank you. As always.
@Jane Donuts I hear that! My problem -- although I'm still not convinced it's a problem, although it's bitten me in the ass so many times -- is that I try to imagine what the other person is thinking, and then try to imagine what they think I'm thinking, and then what they think that I'm thinking that they're thinking, all without ever asking them, and act accordingly ... and it's all in the name of theoretical thoughtfulness, except after the first degree of imagination, it usually becomes nonsense that exists only in my head, and builds on itself further and further away from reality.
Choire let's have a baby!!!!!!
@jolie ... !
Whoa this looks incredible. I was on board even when I thought that was a sanddollar. Maybe ... even more on board? No, I just don't know what a persimmon slice looks like, but now I do! Going to make this at some point in the next five years. Aspirational cocktail.
