This Open Thread Likes French Pop

I’m in the mood for a little dancing, how about you all? This song recently came up on my Pandora and since then I can’t stop listening to it. It’s fun! It’s poppy! It’s French!

This Open Thread Will Be Fine

One of the best (or worst, depending on your personality) things about working as a therapist is that you always get to talk about ~*~feelings~*~.  Stressed out? Feeling a little sad? There is someone who cares. And that’s why tomorrow, for a training I am going to, I have to bring in a song that […]

This Open Thread Is Movin’ Out

Friends, I am in the middle of moving chaos and it is not all that fun. But you know what is? Listening to songs about moving! And who doesn’t love a little Billy Joel?  I just realized as I was typing this that Billy Joel also did the song I chose last week for my […]

Why Should This Open Thread Worry

I was looking through my iTunes today trying to find the perfect optimistic song for this springy Wednesday OT. This one, it turns out, is one of my most played, and why wouldn’t it be? It’s upbeat! It’s catchy! It’s from Oliver and Company!!

Wake up, Wake Up, It’s T-Shirt Open Thread

Yesterday it was 32 degrees and today and tomorrow it’s supposed to be 65. Weather, you so crazy! I’m not even mad at it, though. I love the first warm days of the year, almost nothing else has the power to make me feel as optimistic and hopeful as those days. Today’s OT song is […]

That’s What This Open Thread Is For

Guise, srsly. Srsly guise. I have been overwhelmed with the love and support I have received in the last two weeks from Internet friends and real life friends alike. Not only that, I have been overwhelmed with the love and support I have seen my friends give other people and each other. For most of […]

The Most Beautiful Open Thread In The Room

I was listening to a Fresh Air interview with Bret McKenzie the other day and I remembered how much I like Flight of the Conchords. They have made a reemergence on my iTunes and I am passing the joy on to you!

This Open Thread is Broken Up

In the last 4 days, I have become a connoisseur of breakup songs. And right now I’m really into Aimee Mann and her ability to really articulate everything I feel about the demise of my relationship. There are almost too many options to choose from for the song that I will listen to on repeat […]

This Open Thread Needs Some Inspiration

When I was going through my iTunes to find a good song for tonight’s Dance Party OT, I realized that I have downloaded a paltry 31 songs since this date last year. 31! That’s 2.5 songs a month!  No wonder I feel like I’m tired of all my music; it needs freshening up.

Lunchtime Poll: Losing Time With TV

Recently I have been lamenting that there aren’t enough hours in a day. Even though when I do have more time, I rarely use it efficiently or productively. But in my fantasy land of today’s LTP question, I would be the most productive person in the world.

This Open Thread Is a Punk

I woke up with this song stuck in my head the other morning. I don’t even know why as I don’t listen to The Ramones very often. Nontheless it’s been on and off in my head several times this week, so now you can listen to it for our dance party open thread!

Lunchtime Poll: Nail Polish

I am about to paint my nails with Sally Hansen’s “Greige Gardens,” which, unfortunately is not as greige as I wanted and is more purple. Not a bad color, though. But it has gotten me thinking about the fantasy job of pretty much everyone I know: Nail Polish Namer. And that brings me to my […]

This Open Thread is a Sleepyhead

Today’s Dance Party Open Thread song is in honor of me sleeping for a full two hours after I intended to wake up this morning. This is what happens when I have the option of sleeping in, I take full advantage of it!  Tell me about your day today in our OT!

Lunchtime Poll: Intrusive Thoughts

Earlier this month, our friend Natalie Dee did a few comics about intrusive thoughts, and I spent more time than is probably appropriate thinking about Natalie’s apparent anxiety and how I don’t have intrusive thoughts about ridiculous fears. Until I had an epiphany the other day at the bathroom sink.

C Is For This Open Thread

Or it would be if “Open Thread” started with “C.” I have a theme going in my posts today and I’m not even hiding it. I am sandwiching (mmm…like a cookie sandwich) your Persephone day in cookie posts. This isn’t doing anything to help my insatiable need for cookies, but it’s fun at least.
