I can't believe I'm starting this thread. I can't believe that I came home tonight to the most gloriously Metafiltery of Secret Quonsar gifts!

123: NOT ME THAT DAY

We're podcastin' through the pain: me and jessamyn chat about MeFi, vent a little about the election, and talk about stuff like dealing with art vs. concrete activism and how people can't agree on which way to face in the goddam shower. This episode covers November 2nd through November 30th and runs about 90 minutes.

I didn't even know these were a thing.

Have you had an experience reading Ask Metafilter where you learn something about yourself that you didn't realize you needed to know? Just happened to me and it's SO COOL.

2016 can't ruin COOKIES baked by the internet!

Welcome to the 2016 Metafilter Cookie Swap! It's time for another round of cookie adjudication, recipe sharing, and sugar-fueled meetups all over the world! If you'd like to bring a small bit of joy to someone else's life this month, read on. To sign up, please take a few minutes to fill out and submit the google form below by November 25th: Cookie Swap Signup As in past years, I will arrange bakers into swap groups of ~4 and send out group assignments by November 27th. You will then be tasked with sending at least 6 cookies to each of your group's MetaBakers. While this means you are on the hook for a minimum of 18 cookies, you should likely bake extra for other creatures in your home who will make sad eyes at you until you share your cookies with them. To maximize the chances that holiday travel won't ruin everything, the mailing deadline for this year's swap is Monday, December 5th. Let the baking begin!

NaNoWriMo

It's mid-November and I don't think there's been a NaNoWriMo post yet this year. How goes the NaNo? What are you writing?

2016 Winter Wishes Gift Drive!

It's the most... wonderful tiiime... of the year. It might not feel like it, but given how 2016 has shaped up, this might actually be it! We have a tradition every winter where MetaFilter members come together to bring joy to others for the holidays. Via New York Cares' Winter Wishes program, we fulfill wishes from children's letters -- and for the past two years, from seniors' letters, too. (Skip the details, show me the list!)

Cocktails? Metatalktails? I don't know, come up with something cleverer. Belly on up to the metatalk bar and let's have some Friday chatter! Let's hear about your work, your family, your pets, let's talk about sports and TV and hilarious things you saw in the street, tell terrible jokes, and blow off some steam and be sociable!

MeFi in the time of Trump - managing news

Like many, I was simultaneously hooked and exhausted by the pre-election rolling thread. I was very much looking forward to its demise. It's going to be a long four years. Can we find a way to keep the good and ease the pressure?

Grief and Coping Thread: Election 2016

I think we need this right now; a thread not about politics but about coping with the grief USians and others are feeling on this day. If we have nothing else, we have each other.

MeFites offering refuge for the holidays

In recent (often election) threads, some MeFites have said they're not looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with their families. Others have offered up their homes for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Here's a MetaTalk thread to facilitate those holiday connections for support and good company.

Sending good wishes to all MeFites

Thanksgiving time is upon us in the US and since we all need a hug HUGS! And a reminder that many good folks are offering their homes as a place of refuge.

I don't know how to use FanFare or Where are all the Gilmore Girls??

Um, I have never used FanFare so i don't know if I'm just not looking right or if there really isn't a group WAITING IMPATIENTLY FOR GILMORE GIRLS YEAR IN THE LIFE!!!! or if it just doesn't work like that at all. I can only find old discussions about specific episodes.

Election Destress Video Marathon

Over in MST Club, oneswellfoop had the idea to show MST3K (especially Pod People, the one with Trumpy, a much less dangerous version of the one that currently afflicts our nation) in an election day marathon over on the MST3K Club video page, running all day November 8. Sounds good to me! Details below.
