Hi cats and kittens! Welcome to the Friday Open Thread, the hottest pajama party/pancake bar/midnight woodland coven around. Pull up an inflatable armchair (remember those?) and tell us all about your week, your new haircut, the last of your garden tomatoes, the dream you had about your ex’s dog! I want it all!
This summer has been, uh, a lot, huh? I feel like everyone I know is Going Through It, whatever that looks like for them. One thing that can sometimes be comforting in times like these is some fond nostalgia — I just caught the last third of The Princess Bride on TV and was reminded through Fezzik and Inigo’s bromance that true love is real. I’ve also been visiting my mom back in my hometown and realized she still has my beat-up copy of A Wrinkle in Time on the bookshelf; I’m really excited to reread it before the movie comes out (can’t wait!). I also can’t stop indulging in the timeless classic “Untouched” — remember this??? Why is it still so good??
What blasts from the past do you find comforting to revisit? Video games or TV shows you loved from a different time in your life? What’s your Peak Nostalgia Era? Show me a youtube video! Tell me about it!
Or tell me about your new sewing project, or that thing your boss is doing that’s driving you crazy. What’s your good news and your bad? Get in here and let’s talk about it.
