endlessly fascinated by this modest 1,700 sq ft ranch in my neighborhood that decided to dress up as a McMansion for Halloween

food 

just made a batch of ginger molasses cookies so perfectly formed, so fragrant, so adorably ooey gooey chewy that I started talking to them like a litter of puppies before they were even out of the oven

every 10 years, a new generation is doomed to independently invent planking

lewd stuff in the news 

so it turns out the Yahoo News article about a man getting his anus licked on camera is neither the strangest *nor* the lewdest thing in my feed right now

slur for Roma people 

So confused by the editorial decisions around this headline & subhead. Like, y'all printed the offensive word right there. Twice. I don't think we need to take anyone's word for it

NFTs are asinine, climate-destroying techbro bullshit but I unironically love that Disaster Girl just made a half million dollars off this meme

For as long as I can remember, my mom has plastered the back of her bathroom door (facing the toilet) with a rotating mix of inspirational clippings: greeting cards featuring Rumi poems, trimmed printouts of emails with advice for living an attachment-free life, feminist New Yorker cartoons, magazine pull-quotes from Jane Austen or MLK... and this:

COVID-19, storytelling, workposting 

My company, Avanoo, is looking for stories from the COVID-19 frontlines to elevate and amplify. These could be ordinary or extraordinary stories from nurses, doctors, grocery store workers, volunteers - anyone keeping us safe during this time.

Do you have or know someone who has a story to share?
