So, in a way, this is an open thread about open threads? Metaeek

Just wait, then all the threads here will seem like they're discussing other things but will only be open threads, about the open thread!

It can't be.  There's no list of inane questions to start us off.  How are we supposed to know what to talk about?!

 

Generally I skip the regular Open Thread.  Dunno if anyone could drum up enough snark for a whole GOMI thread about deadbeat boyfrans, suicidal commenters, and pet deaths.  On the other (gloveless) hand, every article is an open thread now and if Marianne wrote them all… sani_elephantdance

 

ETA: I should add that I don't mean to knock this new GOMI expansion, which I'm actually happy about.  We've just come off a really long stretch where the xoEditors just sat and twiddled their thumbs all day.  I hope the TIME buyout spices things up.

More great Twitchy Dan pictures in the Open Thread.  I have a feeling I would react to Jane fake laughing in my personal space the exact same way.

 

Also, Marci and Leslie photoshopped in, but they are CONSPICUOUSLY MISSING a MuchWowEditor.  It's published by xoJaneStaff too, so is this Amber driving a point home?  She's the only one who knows how to use Photoshop, isn't she?

OMG THAT PICTURE.

Ugh, I still remember what's-his-name's bare feet shoved into velveteen opera pumps from last week, but I'm just now seeing the doily pattern on those pants. Do not like. I DO like the fact that he was captured mid-writhe of discomfort as Jane swoops in screeching like a Nazgul; it's not often we get to see a full-body writhe frozen in time like this. Even his lips are writhing.

Why the f**k are people STILL repeatedly asking "Where is Emily?" "Why isn't Emily in the staff pic?" It would have been super easy for them just to make a quick announcement, but even in their stupid-ass xoWay they've done EVERYTHING but spell it out for the poodles, more than once now. Half the people over there refusing to read between the lines at this point are just being deliberately obtuse and obnoxious.

* I love thanksgiving! I cannot meet my parents on this thanksgiving because they are too far away from me. I don't shopping a lot on thanksgiving, but I usually stay with my friends or relatives and cook together during thanksgiving.

*Thanksgiving vent* My baby brother was visiting from grad school and my parents were fawning over him. He had a meltdown because my mom didn't keep track of his medications that can only be renewed month by month because it's so controlled. Instead they tell him they're so impressed with his career, and it's horrible that his job gives him so much to do,etc. I get my job is behind the scenes and in the humanities but I'm sick of it being dismissed. My job and my sport are a joke. Because I did two internships and a volunteer position all through grad school, it's not nearly as impressive as my brother doing a part time job. I mentioned that my trainer has said I should prepare for qualifying for the Pan-Am Games in a few years and they blew it off. *vent over*

I guess I should be grateful that politics didn't come up- I saw my dad had the Ben Carson book

 

Okay, so your little brother is struggling with what sounds like a pretty serious physical or psychological disability that requires strict medication, and despite all that, he's in grad school AND is successfully holding down an apparently very stressful part-time job, and you're complaining because nobody's telling you how snowflakey you are for something vague that'll maybe happen in a few years if you keep at it but probably not because it seems like you're a whiny baby about everything. Yeah, it's definitely your parents who suck. And how dumb of your brother to throw a tantrum about his meds on one of the most stressful days of the year where he is forced to hang out with his b***hy sister and his right-leaning parents all day. Gawd, he's so selfish.

So much wrong and weirdness about this entire picture. Where would I even begin? But every time I even see a posed, pre-arranged picture of Jane, Dan, and the rest of the gals now I pretty much have to look away in embarrassment for all of them at the cheesiness. No. Just no.

You have to love how Jane is ignoring Dan's obvious disdain for physicality by leaning on him. Hello, bad boundaries. And don't tell me Jane isn't exaggerating her laugh for the camera. Jesus, how painful.

 

Why the f**k are people STILL repeatedly asking "Where is Emily?" "Why isn't Emily in the staff pic?" It would have been super easy for them just to make a quick announcement, but even in their stupid-ass xoWay they've done EVERYTHING but spell it out for the poodles, more than once now.

Jane isn't going to confirm or deny anything because she loves the chatter. Plus, I think the general feeling  among the staff regarding Emily is that she got herself into it by slacking off, thereby probably adding to their workload, and so they have no f**ks to give.

I'll also say that the people who continue to submit articles to xoJane and then come to the open thread to whine how nobody has answered their emails also need to GTFO. You just know it's another story about a medical procedure or break-up or something that's already been discussed a kajillion times. They need to change the tag for IHTM to THTMT (That Happened To Me, Too).

 

And color me snore at all the family/relationship horror stories in the Open Thread.

We don't usually have schedules that allow time together, so this morning we were both there smiling adorably at each other and were really talking and laughing for about half an hour. You know telling jokes, all that wonderful coupley shit and I realised that he just wasn't interested. The light sort of faded and I said to him 'You want to read your book, don't you.' and he said 'Is it that obvious? I mean I want to spend time with you, but I want to read…more.' He reads literally at least 5 hours a day for a hobby usually anyway with no hyperbole. He rarely does housework, never exercises and rarely sees friends. I got all pissy and childish about it. I mean, I am well read and people seem to think I'm kind of funny, but…I mean he spent all day reading in other rooms so I wouldn't interrupt him in case you, know I wanted too. I was hurt. I still am hurt. I needed a refill on my meds and got caught out by much more painful than usual cramps and I asked him to please go get it for me (less than 20 mins away) which wouldv'e helped with the pain and he waited more than three hours because he had to 'finish the interesting bits'. I was holding my pelvis as cramp waves were coming knocking the wind out of me and I went into the living room and he was there smirking like a naughty little boy.
 

Gee. I wonder if he went into the other room to read BECAUSE YOU NEVER SHUT THE f**k UP. Honest to God, the banal f**king stories these women tell make me ragey they're so aggressively stupid.

It sounds like they live together, so they might have been together for a while. In that 6 month-a year timeframe of dating and being together, wouldn't she have picked up on this behavior? This kind of person doesn't just "reveal themselves" a while down the road. I'd imagine people know what weird/asshole-ish behavior someone has pretty instantly, right?

My therapist once taught me a trick wherein when something is bothering you about your partner, you describe it out loud to yourself five times, and then decide if it's still A Major Issue. I don't think I'd get through "My husband reads too much" one full time before I decided I was being ridiculous.

I still think he's an asshole for making her wait 3 hours for her pain meds. He should have just said no.
