On any given day I am a silly girl. Some days, I am just plain odd. I get this crack-fiendish feeling that’s like a combination of boredom and anxiety, and the only way to get rid of it is to do something unproductive and totally bizarre to weird myself out. Back in January, I was unemployed and totally having one of those days, so I satisfied my weirding way by starting this Flickr group called Not So Fresh Feeling, and started collecting photos of anything that wasn’t totally gross, or illicit relating to menstruation and feminine hygiene, by soliciting them from other flickr users. Shortly afterward, I sent it over to Tracie at Jezebel, because she’d coincidentally just written a piece about how she spends time on Youtube looking for old, campy feminine hygiene commercials, so I knew it’d be right up her alley. She posted it. I think their readers thought it was funny.
9 1/2 months later – just like I made a real baby, I still find myself scouring Flickr every couple of weeks for pictures to invite to the group, and yesterday I hit the 1,000 photo milestone! It brought me the kookiest feeling of satisfaction, so I just needed to know, do you guys find this rag-tag bombaclaat collection of photos as hilarious as I do?
