but . . . that's how I felt about law school.

(For me at least, law school was so much more fun than being a lawyer, except for the money.)

I remember your posts about your pilgrimage--that remains one of the coolest things I've heard of, and I hope to one day follow in your footsteps.

So, especially after HRC's beautiful post, the end of The Toast feels more and more to me like a commencement. It's like we're graduating. Does anyone else feel like this? Really sad to leave the community, but kind of excited to take the lessons of The Toast into the rest of our lives (not that we haven't been doing so, but).

What if she tried to order one but they were sold out?? As much as I'm looking forward to getting mine, if she wants it, I will contribute to the greater good and send it to her.

I just googled "Hillary Clinton Toast" because I was curious to see if anyone had picked this up--the only results are bad shit, like, "Hillary's campaign is through, it's toast!" But she actually *is* Toast! I dunno, I thought it was funny.

I've loved and been behind Hillary for 19 years--ever since I heard her speak at my college in 1997 after I waited in line for 6 hours for tickets. I didn't think I could love her more, but . . . wow.

Can someone explain Slack a little? Is it kind of like a closed-universe twitter loosely devoted to certain topics (which is how it seems to me)? Or is there a way to respond to certain comments so that replies are nested underneath, the way there is here?

With the caveat that my creep-meter errs on the side of creepy-until-proven-innocent, that sounds creepy and pushy to me. If I liked him, I would probably have a second date, but I wouldn't meet him at his place.

I found a small lump on the side of my neck last summer. Same thing for me--my doctor wasn't worried, said it was a lymph node and my bloodwork was fine. A year later, I'M FINE! It shrinks sometimes (it's tiny now), and sometimes is a little bigger.
I also get little bumps in my breasts, that seem to wax and wane with my cycle and how crappy I'm eating. Those have been checked out, too, and they're normal and not cancer.

Yes, it's normal to feel freaked out. And give yourself time after you get him/her. I had a 4-6 month period of living with my little guy before it became True Love.
