a shoddy bomb casing filled with used pinball-machine parts
I'm really starting to feel like the world would be a better place if all pamphlets regarding anything remotely related to sexuality/relationships/identity were just outsourced to AACQ & then made mandatory for all human beings to read.
this was heartbreaking & lovely. & though it sounds as if it's a lost cause, I hope that someday your mom ends up managing to get help--for her own sake, at least.
if you can do that thing where you put one arm over your shoulder and the other up from your back and can clasp your hands together
I cannot do that thing & I hope none of my coworkers were looking over at me just now when I tried.
@22368026@twitter I had a cinnamon one that I'm now actively yearning for after reading this.
@Jolie Kerr god, the times you'd accidentally wear it on a windy day?? so sexy, the look of having your entire head of hair stuck to your lips.
I was just wondering about this the other day! my feels aren't as Ani-aligned as they once were, but I still have a lot of love for those old songs, & it pains me that to The Youth of Today, she's now "that has-been singer who totally botched her apology for trying to host a retreat on a former plantation." (not that she shouldn't be held accountable for that nonsense--she absolutely should, & I'm super disappointed about how she handled it--but it's sad to me that her current "relevance" is more about that than about her legitimately great back catalog.)
@Anna Fitz ...okay, I've now read it, & you're right--that was fantastic.
@Anna Fitz thank you!! added to my reading list (I love good Chappelle profiles almost as much as I love good Morrison profiles).
wow, that was a great profile (& I say that as someone who's read a LOT of Toni Morrison profiles).
oh man, woe betide anyone who decides to write a biography of me based on my google history. (also, this is great.)
