    @RoryGilmore We might find out with this one! Still not decided 100% but I’m leaning towards wanting to know this time.

    I know a Honey in real life and honestly, I fucking love it. And our @Honey.

    @HBC I still think our names would be great in a cheesy murder mystery series. Two old nosy busybodies accidentally overhear murdery gossip while waiting in line at the cheese shop.

    Brb, writing my first self published kindle novel.

    I left the hotel room without my purse.

    Thankfully I didn’t get far before I realized, but R had forgotten to grab a room key.

    90% of poor rooster’s life with me is hearing more than he could ever want to know about shit like dire wolves. Ice Age megafauna’s my jam.

    They are on Game of Thrones! Which is why I thought they were not real.

    This is for my rooster. All weekend, he can’t find his wallet. We looked everywhere at both houses. It’s gone. I had to pay for everything all weekend (which itself is whatever, and it was his birthday).
    This morning I’m in the shower. “Hey I found my wallet!”
    “It was on my nightstand under my work phone.”

    OMG I love direwolves. I also dig extinct animals. Direwolves are a personal favorite along with the thylacine and those big ass ground sloths.

    More a cone of awkwardness...

    I was sitting near the counter at the vet when and Africa-American man came in with a Ryder-sized male dog. He checked in then sat 2 chairs away. Ryder, being the asshole that he is, started to get agitated and could not stop staring at this dude's dog.

    I turned to the very nice gentleman to say, "It's absolutely not you. My dog is dog-aggressive and isn't a fan of men either, so I'm going to move. I'm so sorry." Between that very uncomfortable explanation and not saying anything at all, I went for the (hopefully) less insulting option. Still felt like a dick though.

    I don't see anything wrong or even anything that awkward with that. Having been to the vet a LOT in the last several months, I've seen people have those kinds of exchanges all the time -- all dogs have to go to the vet, some dogs are not fans of some/all other dogs, rearranging of chairs ensues.

    For years I thought Futurama made up narwhals like they made up the Omicronians. I think I was 27 or 28 when I learned the truth.

    I had to do a report on them in elementary school, but if I hadn’t I probably would have thought they were fake too

    I remember reading a Reddit thread where a surprising number of people were late to the “narwhals are real” party, so you guys are in good company.

    Look, when they are frequently referred to as ‘the unicorns of the sea,’ well, you can understand my confusion.

    Poor rhinos. They’re the original unicorns and people keep trying to make unicorns into something else. The body image issues they must have by now.
