Hi yall and happy Thursday! It has been a long week already, has it not? I am still sending a lot of love out to our Texas peeps even while I am ensconced in my own petty nonsense (more in comments).
I feel like this is not making national news, although it should, but if anyone wants to please send dry, non rainy thoughts to New Orleans and sit back for a tale of a really poorly run government entity, now is the time.
Hi yall - I am hoping you can help me with a present for my sister. It’s her birthday and she and her boyfriend have just moved in together in a new city, and we are thinking about getting them a board game they (and maybe new friends) could both enjoy.

This is long, but worth it - a very insightful take on the current generation of young white men who are supporting the far right.
...things have been dark around here today, so please enjoy these woke jokes.
I’m getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow! What are your best tips and experiences from when you had them out, GT? What is the one thing you wish you’d known or prepared for better? I know it varies quite a lot per person and situation, but I will take any advice you’ve got :)
Please place your grumpiness here, over big or little things.
In the spirit of the day - not the actual spirit, but the spirit of those who don’t really care about the holiday but always enjoy something good and weird or hilarious... please share the weirdest, funniest, head-tiltingest, Valentines that you’re seeing today!
This is a discussion we started to briefly touch on the other day, on accordingto’s excellent post regarding the organizations that the Women’s March was choosing to partner with, which included some organizations that were distinctly anti choice.
So here I am on the interwebs, just looking for cute videos to share with my nieces, when I come across my favorite new internet comment ever.
Hello everyone! Are you also already bored, because no one else you know has to work? Why does your company make you work? Please share interesting and fun things here to keep us going through the day!
Hi all! I turn once again to the great hivemind for suggestions - I have a holiday cookie swap this weekend and want to make something cute and fun and delicious (there is a contest!). What are your go-to holiday cookie recipes? Preferably easy and without expensive ingredients, of course :)
