I don’t think we’ve ever had an [afvw*] thread, so consider this the inaugural one. Feel free to mention your projects, recent cool things you’ve seen, or awesome entries that you’ve written or read, whatever—and chat about it all in the comments. I’ll kick things off and recommend Rachel’s post on competitive eating.
I’ve never heard the phrase “old maid’s portion,” but I have been at office parties and such where women will absolutely refuse to take the last cookie or piece of cake, all the while bemoaning how much they want to be “bad.” Inevitably, some male coworker sails along and grabs the offending piece while the women look wistfully on.
It’s a great post, and I’ve been meaning to recommend it to all of you. And now I have! So, what else should we go read today?
