avid enthusiast of storytelling, humor, improvisation, games, grammar, & serendipity. also: rollercoasters, hoppy beer, cheese, & other experiences/consumables.
I'm late to the party here, but the bunny/claws imagery feels like an awesome refraction of the dialogue in Swingers, & as an unrepentant Swingers apologist, I love it. (also the advice is fantastic, Polly is fantastic as always, & I want everyone in the world to either find someone who embraces all their messy weirdness or else take to the sea, as they see fit.)
@Edgar Allan Bro on a related note, my parents (who are usually reasonably with it!) didn't know what a "selfie" was until a few months ago (when I unthinkingly dropped it into conversation & was shocked at their confused response).
so much to hate here, but my favorite was "He says he intentionally picked an older model iPhone, the 4S, for work, so he isn't tempted to use it for more than email."
I got my first (& only) smartphone in August 2013, & it's--gasp--an iPhone 4. I can only assume that my ability to use it for anything besides email is a special superpower possessed only by me.
@KimO yes, this. also, why no mention of Brooklyn Nine-Nine (which features two Latinas and two Black men in its ensemble)?
at least there was an explanation for the usage of "Latin" in the pie chart, but I question how much space was saved by omitting a single character.
@Taffeta Darling hear, hear. I'm sure her life will turn out awesome in the long run, whatever happens, but I don't envy the spot she's in right now.
is now a good time to confess that the "awww girl" sample from "Get Back" is still regularly referenced/verbalized in our household?
letter-writer, check out the URL, & make that past-tense a reality, please.
it's so sad to me that I'll Be the Cool Uncaring Girl & Soon Everything Will Be Perfect is such a common phase--I went through it too, & it only served to teach me what an exercise in futility it really is.
some of my facebook friends were having a discussion of why "I won't tell you why I'm mad; you should know" is considered a trope of female argumentation & I think it comes from the same place: not feeling like it's okay to speak up for yourself, thus silently stewing in the vain hope that somehow your needs will become magically known & met.
be That Girl, letter writer. always & forever. That Girl is way happier than the "cool" one who pretends she doesn't care.
as someone who just moved from Angry Time to Itchy Time & is still not okay with the fact that everything on TV starts so goddamn late now, I suggest you reverse those two designations.
I deeply distrust anyone who's familiar with Peaches but doesn't like her/her music. (the ones who aren't aware of her, I just pity or try to shaman into awareness.)
