Favorite Quotations: What I fear most, I think, is the death of the imagination...If I sit still and don't do anything, the world goes on beating like a slack drum, without meaning. We must be moving, working, making dreams to run toward; the poverty of life without dreams is too horrible to imagine.
"I will have my serpent's tongue-- my woman's voice, my sexual voice, my poet's voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence."
And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me, me
-Neutral Milk Hotel- "In The Aeroplane Over the Sea"
"Spring is still Spring. The atom bombs are piling up in the factories, the police are prowling through the cities, the lies are streaming from the loudspeakers, but the earth is still going round the sun, and neither the dictators nor the bureaucrats, deeply as they disapprove of the process, are able to prevent it."
I dream a dream where man
No other man will scorn,
Where love will bless the earth
And peace its paths adorn.
-Langston Hughes- "I Dream A World"

Katie: she ruined your childhood

Me: I KNOW
Me: GOD I CAN'T
Erin: THAT DOESN'T COUNT
Me: I AM SO LAME.
Erin: YOU FAIL AT LIFE
Me: I KNOW.
(the context of this doesn't matter)
public urination is always a strong candidate for ridiculous.
Ravi: You should've thought about that before you bit me.
It is better to receive a flower from a casual friend than a can of succotash from a hoodlum.
-Erin M. Kyles.
"If I abstain from fun and such,
I'll probably amount to much,
But I shall stay the way I am,
Because I do not give a damn."
-Dorothy Parker, "Observation"
I like russian writers, italian food, indian boy, american poets and french music. I'm multi-cultural like that.
It occurs to me that I'm going to have to update a lot of this stuff anyway: network, current city, relationship status, about me. I still can't figure out when would be a good time to remove my relationship status (I don't feel like seeing "Single" just yet and I don't need the pity of FB), but I guess as long as R and I are sharing a house and bed, it should stay as is. This whole situation is, at times, difficult to wrap my mind around.
