Every time I drop my car off at the car guy, I get to run up the longest escalator in the western hemisphere!!
And everytime, I think to myself, I am the coolest.
I wonder how Colin Firth feels about this? I think I'd struggle to appreciate this statue if I were him.
Of course, as I'm not him, I think it's incredible and hilarious. Incredibly hilarious?
I spent SO much time picking a quote, it was like a BIG deal. And I only listed one of my activities (lit mag editor) because I felt superior to all those kids who did a billion things and man I was a pretentious little so-and-so.
I ended up going with Douglas Adams, the long version of "I may not have gone where I intended to go but I think I have ended up where I needed to be". Which honestly only gets truer as I get older.
I can't be the only one who has listened to Anna von Hausswolff's Funeral for My Future Children on repeat all afternoon??
1) What a great name!
2) What a great song name!
@hallelujah Yes, this, 100X this! Please don't hug me just because I'm a woman. Work people, know this: I am judging you for hugging me.
@Scandyhoovian Thanks for sharing -- very powerful.
Living In Sin is my favorite -- maybe I'll record it!
I quote the ending to myself pretty much all the time.
@Emmanuelle Cunt No that is a great poem, I don't even know why that would be corny!! My fav Roethke is always I Knew a Woman (http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/172104) -- (I measure time by how a body sways) UGH.
@TinaBelcher Upon finishing Where'd You Go, I immediately rushed to library to get the L'Engle book. Yay Antartica!
