To celebrate Metafilter's 15th anniversary this month, I have given myself a MeFi-themed manicure. I thought I would share with you all.

Other neat mefiversary things:

hydrophonic made these super nifty coasters!
The Chicago Cabal (TINCC) is doing a month of meetups!


Is anyone else in too deep?

I'm thinking about making a cake for the DC 15th! Right now my plan is just to try to make it blue with the words "MeFi" in yellow but I am open to suggestions. Also, those nails are effing fierce! Great idea!

It's cool. My penmanship is butt slop.

I'm thinking about making a cake for the DC 15th!

In the past when I've had more time, I've thought about doing a metafilter cake, too! In my head it's our logo written out on a blue cake on a disc of white marshmallow fondant.

But in my head most things are cake, so.

I wouldn't mind a MetaFilter pedicure. Rather than the Cthulhu theme now in place

Ugh, still groaning! The nails are awesome (but I'm low on sleep and coffee, so my brain was even more addled than usual).

Chicago folks mean that a week of meet ups is WONDERFUL!

It is also EXHAUSTING!

But more wonderful than exhausting.

We are having a Triangle Meetup here in Raleigh!

Thinking about it, I am at a total loss to understand why I find "butt slop" so much funnier than "butts LOL". Like, "butts LOL" is just worth a chuckle, but I've totally lost my mind over the concept of "butt slop".

There is obviously something very, very seriously wrong with me.

Metafilter: butt slop
posted by deezil at 8:59 AM on July 8, 2014


Currently, mochapickle is known to me as the mefite who says very kind and touching things about dogs, so I really kind of love that her legacy is now being expanded to include butt slop.

This has got to be the most anal thread on mefi.

Love the nails though.

To be honest you could have linked to any thread there and still have arguably been right.

butt slop (sfw)

I've walked past this sign almost daily for the last two years, and it still makes me snigger from time to time. I think this says bad things about my maturity level.

I think we've run across a MF meme/slogan/injoke that just might not make the tee shirt list.

I read that as butt slop too, but the endoscopy discharge photo made the thread for me.

I remember for the MeFi 10 anniversary meetup in LA Thin Lizzy made the coolest cupcakes with correctly-colored fondant frosting shaped like little +'s & !'s. They were awesome-post-flag-worthy and quite possibly my favorite. Oh look, there's a picture!

Lovely work, phunniemee! I would probably need about ten intermediate coats of Seche Vite to do anything even near as neat, and by then my nails would be as thick as pancakes.

It might all be worth it for a MetaTalk themed manicure, though. Maybe I could inscribe a tiny flouncy flameout on my thumbnails.

Someone on twitter suggested I mentally change all instances of "email" in a boring meeting to "butt" and I was endlessly amused by thinking about butt distribution lists, shared buttboxes, butt encryption, "never send sensitive information by butt," etc.

It's not properly painted on. I did all my letters with puffy paint nail pens on a piece of waxed paper and then stuck them on my nails. And it only took four coats of seche!

How about "math owie," my (and I'm sure others') favorite mangled pronunciation? I'm also partial to HURF DURF, but that should really be saved for The Night of the Hunter-style tattoos.

[…] I mentally change all instances of "email" in a boring meeting to "butt" […]

I do this with "cloud." I substitute in the word "clown." So they I get to hear about "clown computing," storing data "in the clown," Apple's "iClown" service, and people talk about clown services and clown devices.

It makes the world more interesting. I am going to adopt the email/butts one now as well, since we just moved our butts to clown based butts.

This thread reminds me of the plan I had some years ago to knit myself a MeFi hoodie. Somehow it disappeared from my knitting to do list, but I'll put it back on now.

If you're really committed, you'll get a tattoo. I was going to say "of your user number" but fortunately I realized how horrifying that would sound.

I used to work for a company which I called "ClownSource" and boy, were they ever.

''In honor of Metafilter's 15th anniversary, I will refuse to shake hands with the president. This will be a symbolic gesture that all future salutations will, in lieu of actual human contact, be done over the internet, and the longstanding and generally civil discourse on Metafilter.com is a perfect example of the coming presidential race" - Rick Perry, overheard on 7/8/2014.

Ha! I clicked on the "[more inside]" handwritten words in the photograph. As if that would result in more cupcakes.

MY ACTUAL THOUGHTS, in order
What does that say?

It looks like it says "slol"... "slol"? What is "slol"?

"Butt"?

"Butt slol"?

What the hell is "butt sl-"

Then I lol'd.

What is the usefulness of intermediate coats of Seche Vite? I usually just let parts of a design dry for a minute before moving on and use the SV at the end. Makes it easier to do touch-ups and is less prone to tip shrinkage.

Also I love that you did this phunniemee and now I'm contemplating possible Mefi manicures...

I wish my nails were of a quality where I could do something besides just paint them...

I wonder if I have a MeFi enough blue...

Another neat mefiversary thing:

At last night's Meetup for the park showing of 20 Feet to Stardom, an older gentleman with presumably his wife walked by and said hello to my partner and me in the friendly awkward way that someone who knows you but does not expect to see you in this context would say hello.

We said hi right back because we're civilized, but after he left racked our brains trying to figure out which doctor or former employer this man was until my partner realized it was Jim, our tour guide from last Saturday's tour of Chicago's moving bridges!

So no pressure or anything, Chicago, but some dude we don't even know has been to two Meetups this month already.

I can't find the "Glorious Decade" photoshop of Matt as Mao Zedong anywhere on the web. I was going to make a joke about getting it tatooed on my chest, but I can't find it anywhere. :(

Yeah the Imageshack links on the "Images" wiki page are dead, but the Wayback Machine still has them:

I look forward to seeing your tattoo!! ;)
