Breaking Bad finale thread (spoilers)
The Home Place "The home, which we call The Home Place, has remained vacant and largely untouched for over 26 years. This week I entered the home for the first time in many, many years to photograph it. The images in this post are deeply personal and full of memories of, and for, my family." Amazingly lovely, melancholy photos.

Cheer me on to get my laundry done! I miss stewriffic's weekend chores posts. I know that it's late, but I've got load three of four in the washer, and I'd like to get through all four loads, and it'll help if y'all cheer me on! Or shame me! Or distract me! Or whatever!

But do I go back to class? And am I overthinking this. Hi, Jessamyn sent me over. I had a newish friend reprimand me during a class, then later (maybe a day later) I got an e-mail from him saying "I'm trying to cut down my net time, help me by not writing much here." So I sense (I think) that he is pushing me away.

This is a platonic setup, and I get it that anyone can say goodbye at any time without even a reason, that's life.

I'm taking a course from him, and now wonder if I belong there. It's hard to approach someone who reprimands you. At least it is for me.

I know this is sparse. I could write a novelette but do not have time. And I am new to metachat. OK, I can back off. I would back up to Washington State if I thought that would help.

OMG! The illegitimate son of our iconic 'Big Pink Bunny' is "Sunbathing Hare" by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman on Hare Island (of course) near St. Petersburg, Russia. Covered with strips of painted plywood, the Hare measures 15 meters from ear to toe with a tail sticking up 2.5 meters.

Insert your Yakov Smirnoff "In Rabbit Russia..." jokes here.
in the future, when they ask about Tom Friedman all you'll have to do is point to his column about Pink Hair. They will nod, solemn with understanding, and never dare ask again.
