Summer Vacation

It’s time for a little vacation. I will be out of town for about a week starting today, and, like this cat, spending as much time as possible staring out at a large body of water rather than my computer screen. Oh, I’ll still be putting up posts every day — well, I’ll try to — and keeping my eye on the blog. But I won’t be checking up on comments quite as often, or responding as quickly to whatever is going on in the manosphere on any given day. If you need to get in touch, email me.

About David Futrelle

I run the blog We Hunted the Mammoth, which tracks (and mocks) online misogyny. My writing has appeared in a wide variety of places, including Salon,, the Washington Post, the New York Times Book Review and Money magazine. I like cats.

  17. I'vegotthePopcorn

    Have a lovely week David. I will miss your daily posts too, but I think perhaps you should just leave the computer closed for a week. Why not have a proper break, all the manosphere crap will still be here when you get back.

  18. Have a great week, David!

  19. Well, at least if you encounter any sharks on your vacation, they’ll be nothing compared to the MRAs you discuss on a regular basis.

  20. Have fun! I think vacations involving large bodies of water are the best kind.

  21. Anybody else doing fun vacationy things this year? I’m going to the Seattle area for a wedding in late August, and I’m very excited about it!

  22. Enjoy yourself. I need to have vacations which are less work,

  23. Viscaria, the husband and I are going to upstate NY for a family reunion of sorts late next month. We were going to do Seattle, but changed our minds. Which reminds me, I have to buy the tickets today or tomorrow.

  24. Wow that picture looks great! Have a wonderful time.

  25. I actually just found that pic online. No kitties here.

    Thanks, everyone, for the well-wishing!

  26. Treating this as an OT. Just saw Brave. Didn’t think about the setting of the film. I was wearing a kilt because it was 1: easier than packing it to bring it home, and 2: the weather here was warm.

    I’m in line to get popcorn and this familiar person asks me, “Are you here to see Brave, or do you just like wearing kilts”.


    It was a friend who lives a few blocks away, so we all sat together and had a good time. The Kee-O Blocks pastiche of “Battleship” was probably ten times the movie that Battleship was.

  27. Enjoy yourself, David.

  28. Have a lovely time! I know that cat isn’t yours, but isn’t zie gorgeous? Look at those leopardy spots! Delicious.
