+ season 4 of the killing is out
- serious work drama
+ bourbon drinks
- all of the men
Being a woman is kind of like being a cyclist in a city where all the cars represent men. You’re supposed to be able to share the road equally with cars, but that’s not how it works. The roads are built for cars and you spend a great deal of physical and mental energy being defensive and trying not to get hurt. Some of the cars WANT you to get hurt. They think you don’t have any place on the road at all. And if you do get hurt by a car, everyone makes excuses that it’s your fault.

Sad because it’s true.
Whenever a lot of people think a woman is disgusting or shameful and for some reason feel incentivized to espouse that opinion loudly, something interesting is going on. What I realized in the elevator is that I’m on the side of every girl who people jump to conclusions about. I always want to know more about what’s going on with that girl, because the elevator people are boring and wrong. And really, they are missing out on a lot of fun stuff.

I will never, ever understand the impulse that making you decide to be a sniping, back-bitey piece of shit at work. Just a mean, small, blaming-everybody-else while making crises out of non-problems piece of shit. Congrats on being terrible!
Ps this manager’s behavior is 100% driven by the fact that my manager’s group has fun and likes our jobs in full view of her group, who is miserable. Also, what a coincidence that she just happened to blow her hateful and nasty fuse on the day that my manager made a conspicuous display for one of her team member’s birthday. “Your thoughtfulness highlights how unthoughtful I am, so you must be punished!” Ugh x 1,000,000.
Chris Pine leaving Skylight Books on Sunday (Jul 28, 2013) in Los Angeles.
if new age suburban yoga mom is chris pine’s chosen summer aesthetic then i am so on board with that it’s painful
I’m so confused.
Oh god I’m so crabby I can’t even sleep
How is that even a thing
And also help because shopping is my coping mechanism and my brain is all “well, if we’re already in debt, let’s just do it up right and get further in debt by getting that bag you’ve wanted all year!”
Also I am not really crabby about cat haters. I am crabby about people posting beach pictures on Facebook where they are hugging their boyfriends and the light is golden and they look relaxed and happy and loved. And I’m crabby about it because not only am I boyfriendless, but I can’t even pay off my credit card bill this month so I definitely can’t afford to go to the beach and it’s been so long since I’ve been there and it’s gut punching me in the feels how much I need a vacation and want to feel romantic interest in someone right now.
Another thing that annoys me:
People who say, “oh, I don’t like cats. But this one cat I liked, he would come up to you when you got home and follow you around JUST LIKE A DOG! He thought he was a dog!”
THAT CAT THINKS IT IS A CAT. That is just the kind of cat you like! There are millions of them that act that way! Stop acting like all cool cats are only cool because they resemble the kind of dog you like! Just acknowledge that you like cats when they are social!
