Hello! Here’s a math problem for you: if I go to Trader Joe’s a couple of times a week, and I’ve picked up the habit of buying a plant every time I go…exactly at what point does this habit start to be an issue? I JUST WANT TO GROW A VERDANT, HAPPY WORLD, it’s all I want!

It’s too perilous
this is a work of art snow!
Here’s another example of being TOO TALL
such risks I take
I love how the one person is literally craning her neck to gaze up at your tallness
The risk of neck strain is just one of the many perils of being around someone Very Tall Indeed
EVERYONE in that shot looks taller than me so…
Short people can be perilous too I’m sure. They’d be better at sneak attacks
I have my suspicions about who’s been touching my butt
See now I’m curious how many thumbs up my butt I would get. Are they bringing the thumb button back?
Maybe the lack of butt thumb buttons is part of the sneak attack plan
How many thumbs up your butt would get, or how many thumbs UP your butt?..
Ugh high heels are the #2 thing I miss about losing my ballet muscles.
I never met a pair I couldn’t walk in only a couple I decided against cartwheeling in.
I need a new pair of these
Have you ever tried something like this on?
Nope never got the chance :(
But fun fact like boxing ballet makes the bones put under the stress of training harder so it’s feasible I could stand in a pair of those for a minute no problem.
Ok I googled boxing ballet and um THANK YOU for inadvertently leading me to this video
Here’s my ex wearing the red pair. Wish I had them back
oh! I also feel immediately attracted to ballet boxing, thank you
Isn’t it just a very attractive sport!
For reals how long can you walk around in those shoes before your feet cramp up? They look torturous
The goal isn’t to walk around, it’s to stand at the foot of the bed looking fetching, then slowly topple backwards like an adorable sexy giraffe.
Honestly I don’t know any other way to get into bed
“They call me Jaws.”
A long time ago, I was standing in the hallway of a hospital somewhere in the middle of the woods in Spain and had a lengthy discussion with a ballet dancer about how similar and complementary martial arts and ballet are.
Do these flex a little like pointe shoes? I feel like the balance on these would depend so much on the arch of your foot.
I always wanted a pair of blood red pointe shoes. Kate Bush felt me on this lol.
Applause for The Idgie Threadgoode Award
(those are bees!)
The Idgie Threadgoode award! As a tomboy who identified very much with Idgie and had a huge crush on a real Ruth (from theatre group) and Ruth Jamison – and asked my mom several insistent questions about their relationship, I’m ridiculously proud.
I miss the thumbs up button
Oh no! Where’d it go?? I loved the thumbs up button! It was so… affirmative. But maybe its absence will lead to more actual comments?
I want it back too
I also and thank you for commenting b/c I was worried browser was glitching and signing me out from page to page or something
Please tell me that the “Detective Aaaaaaaaangeeeeeeel” award is a reference to Angel on Top.
For the record, “Leo” was a warning!! Be yourself with extreme caution.
It’s a warning about how awesome we are
That’s some excellent work by Ava, thank you. Also, choosing Ontario to me means they boh wanted to save on a flight. Just one question though, if she chooses Finney does that mean she bought a ticket right on the spot?
Aaaaaaaaa! Nice! Thanks!
Roses are red, Tess in priest’s bed is also one for the anthologies. Now I’m imagining a cheesy not in proper form haiku collection for Gen Q. With illustrations, of course. Hmm.
