When was the last time you danced? 7) In your apartment, in your underwear. You looked just like Beyonce.

Oofta that one-line e-mail is a killer.

At your mention of Spock I had the sudden and terrible realization that I dated Spock for four years, then Kirk for a year, and now I've moved on to Bones. By the end I had to keep fighting off the terrible truth that my Bones is actually a Finn :( :( :( (but... it's DIFFERENT with me . . . . .!!! :/ ...)

"'Real women’s empowerment is being able to do what you want to when you want to.'"

And if you try so very, very hard, and do everything exactly right, and make perfect choices, eventually you will have a perfect life, free of conflicts and anxieties and the nagging feeling that if you had just done it right, been a little more accommodating or a little less accommodating or nicer or meaner or in better shape or less concerned about your body or more dedicated to your job or more focused on your home life, everything would have just snapped into place and you would be content now.

And if you don't have that life, it's your fault, because you have CHOICES, can't you see that, and if you had made the right ones you would have transcended human imperfection by now.

a midnight birthday
text from a love who is back
my cloyed thumping heart
