learning that my thanksgiving name is josepha chamomile underhill
i had a gf when i was eleven! it was hilariously embarrassing and also my only official romantic experience so far
my dad always says he has a different gf every year from kindergarten to sixth grade. he tells the story like this: “and then i would tell adam, who would tell mark, who would tell robert, who would tell sharon, who would tell julie, who would tell rachel, who would tell becky that i had a crush on becky, and then becky would tell rachel, who would tell julie, who would tell sharon, who would tell robert, who would tell mark, who would tell adam, who would tell me that she liked me back. and then we would be boyfriend and girlfriend.”
every subway rapper aspires to this level of swag
i’ve always believed america needs to switch to metric bc what the what is a peck??
did you know that one and a half ounces is a jigger?
that looks so good!!
that looks so something!!
considering his celebrity parentage i actually think that’s a better name than if you had named him hawthorne johnson or whatever. think about river phoenix!
america did try to switch to metric (at some point) but it caused a ton of chaos and people couldn’t understand the speed markers while driving, leading to tons of issues & such, so we switched back. people have suggested switching but at this point, i think it’d be too much of a hassle - unless we started teaching metric to children and slowly incorporated it over time.
(i learned this in like 8th grade so it may not be totally accurate lmao)
i know that around the midcentury there was a huge push to teach kids metric in schools b/c they all assumed the country would be using metric by the time the kids grew up, but then it just… didn’t happen
v. true – my point was entirely theoretical lol. also i bet the far right would try to paint it as like a socialist european plot or something
Fun fact: [name_f]Canada[/name_f] used to use the imperial system too, but they switched to metric (I believe in the 70s). It was a good decision if you ask me (a totally not biased Canadian who primarily uses metric)
[name_u]Happy[/name_u] Thanksgiving (late but still)
Wow haha someone asked me out when I was 11 so I guess I can sorta relate but I was not a fan of the whole thing or the guy (emphasis on guy)
Aaand now we know how old your dad is
A what now
Why thank you
Nah I most certainly do thanks [name_u]Anne[/name_u]
It doesn’t make very much sense when it comes to freezing/boiling point but I feel like saying “it’s 100 degrees Fahrenheit” sounds so much better than “it’s 37 degrees Celsius”
Definitely not biased
Things about my Thanksgiving you might appreciate
[name_f]My[/name_f] cousin has an unidentified learning disorder and he alerted me, entirely seriously so now I’m confused, that sometimes he’ll look at a number and instead of seeing a number he’ll see a chicken. He’s 8 btw and I’m confused.
my uncle has been really busy lately so I haven’t gotten to see him much but we hung out at Thanksgiving and it was really fun and he made fun of me
I rolled down a really steep hill
I ate a lot of really good food
how was your Thanksgiving, if you celebrated? (I felt like I needed a 5th bullet point so I put the question here)
lmaooo i was trying to explain ntbs to my dad and as an example i gave this criteria from my new ntb: “her name is a long, unusual name that can be shortened to the nickname “kit.” her middle name relates to a classic film, and her last name is of chinese origin but not popular in china.”
and he came up with: skittles nosferatu chan-li “kit”
i think my middle-aged father could completely make it as a teenberry. he understands our vibe
my Super [name_f]Awesome[/name_f] [name_m]Luck[/name_m] kicked on on thursday and blessed me with a sore throat and a nasal congestion, so i spent most of thanksgiving laying on a couch i did get some potatoes and gravy, so it wasn’t all bad
skittles ‘kit’ is kind of amazing, though
happy belated thanksgiving, folks! i hope everyone had a lovely time!
