Before I get to the unavoidable bodily function/xoJane meta-humor, I wanted to ask you all: What are you going as for Halloween? Last year I was speaking on a panel so I couldn't really dress up, the year before I was Ygritte from Game of Thrones (highly recommend! it was warm and pop-culturally relevant and relatively inexpensive to pull off), and this year I'm fresh out of ideas but ready to get drunk in a costume. Marci wants me to go as a Robert Palmer "Addicted to Love" girl, since I love me a black turtleneck dress, but no one in my age range gets that reference (including me).
I'm thinking about Little Red Riding Hood because a.) I want an excuse to own a cape b.) the costume necessitates a basket, which means I can carry snacks and booze around with me.
Anyway, onto the comments! First up, from "IT HAPPENED TO ME: My Coworkers Caught Me Pooping in the Conference Room":
I'm happy to confirm the existence of said templates. In fact, at the end of the month when we're all feeling a little creative stultification, Jane writes them on notecards, puts them in a hat, and makes us all pick one. (This is a joke.)
The next comment is something I feel like I will never personally recover from, so I need to inflict it on anyone who hasn't seen it. From "IT HAPPENED TO ME: My Twitter Group's Nude Photos Got Shared Publicly":
This is like the time someone showed me a photo of a shaved bear (not an innuendo, an actual bear) and I've never been able to see anything else whenever I look at bears since. Thanks for ruining fluffy dogs for me, Eridani Black.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
