Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, kristi wants to know "What objects do you still have from your childhood - especially things that don't have any particular sentimental value? I happened to notice I have a pair of scissors that I'm pretty sure were bought for me to use in grade school. I have no special attachment to them; they just seem to have stayed with me through the years." [more inside]
OK! I am having people over to my house in Massachusetts on Saturday, July 13 where we will raise a toast to mathowie and, quite probably, eat a lot of cheese and maybe play some board games. I'll put up an IRL post soonish but this MeTa thread is to nudge people to start thinking about their own "What am I going to do for MeFi's 20th birthday?" planning ideas. First post was July 14, 1999.
Nearing the end of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. Let's talk about books. What are you currently reading? Share some good book recommendations (any genre) with the rest of us. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. Happy reading.
Several years ago someone posted a link on the blue of a table that took prolife arguments and explained how to was or wasn't consistent with simply punishing women for daring to have sex. It covered abortion, birth control, and the hpv vaccine. [more inside]
I'm looking for a comment which I believe was on Metafilter (although I could be conflating it with another site) within the last couple of years. If I'm remembering it correctly, it was in a discussion about or related to fandom or fanfiction, and the comment was something like "when people put a lot of energy into saving a particular character, on some level they're putting that energy into saving themselves." This is precisely what I did, and I've wanted to refer to that comment several times, but I've never been able to find it. Does it ring a bell for anyone?
Oh, and hey, big ol' honkin' congrats to Blisterlips and griphus for doing this whole having an adorable baby thing. Hey there, Helio Edward, welcome to MetaFilter. [more inside]
(Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh) Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! It's time for Eurotalktails! (Which is supposed to be the first weekend of the month but sometimes new months surprise me.) This week, I want to know what is NEW in your life? What are you doing that's new, that's different, that's something you've never done or tried before? Did you hang a new piece of art? Take a class? Get a pet? Jog a whole mile? Watch a Wes Anderson movie for the first time? Tell me something you've done lately that's NEW to you! [more inside]
We're nearly at the end of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. I was driving home from work yesterday and I witnessed a man walking a tiny Chihuahua on a leash, he was smoking a cigarette while also drinking from a beer can & was running a little bit late at crossing the cross-walk and did this kind of "I'm sorry." dance in front of me and the way he waved his hand and smiled caused me to burst into an uncontrollable fit of laughter, pure giggles. I'd love to hear stories of a similar nature, some situation that caused you to burst into pure random laughter/joy because you witnessed it or were a part of it. As always, be kind to yourself and others. Cheers.
It's time for a new venting thread! When concise and witty just won't do, this is the place to say fuck all to this fucking fuckery!!!
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I'm curious to know what your favorite thing to do for self-care is. Could be simple, could be elaborate, I just want to hear all about your self-care! [more inside]
