On How to Be a Genius (Or, How to Contract Syphilis and Be An Artist)

Wait, people thinking James Joyce having syphilis is a new thing? I remember reading something for my "Ulysses" class six or so years ago that academics pretty much agreed that he did? That's why he had never ending eye issues, among other things.

On The Trouble With Reader-Shaming: A Y.A. Book List

@NellyBly Isn't it awesome?! Birdy was pretty much my favorite heroine growing up, and she probably is now, because I like my female characters prickly and unorthodox.

On The Trouble With Reader-Shaming: A Y.A. Book List

*continues to read 'Howl's Moving Castle', 'Catherine, Called Birdy' (which reminds me HEY IT HOLDS UP), and the 'Skullduggery Pleasant' books while Icona Pop's seminal 'I Love It' plays and I'm singing the chorus*

On February Horoscopes from Galactic Rabbit

"What I am telling you, beloved, Virgo of my heart, is that there are people out there whose goodness is without measure. Do not dishonor them by assuming otherwise. Why suffer fools when you could bask in the love of menschen?" *curls up and cries, because I really needed to hear that*

On Realistic ModCloth Descriptions

My favorite review I've ever read on ModCloth was for a flower crown, and it went something like: "I thought it was pretty, but my boyfriend said I looked like Jesus."

On 917 People Who Are Hotter Than Benedict Cumberbatch

On Poetry: A Love Story

@Slanted & Enchanted It was more that she found I refused to give up something for Lent because that isn't what my family did and then she proceeded to give me hell about it because "DON'T YOU KNOW WE DO THAT TO SYMBOLIZE JESUS DYING ON THE CROSS FOR US?" because giving up chocolate for Lent=being crucified.
Why yes, I did go to a Catholic college (and a Catholic high school).

On Poetry: A Love Story

@daisicles Nah, for a test essay it was just WRITE IT DOWN AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE and then go home. With papers you have research and cover pages and bibliography and way too much procrastination.

On Poetry: A Love Story

@daisicles I remember she liked writing essays, but then again everyone did but me (I'm one of the rare ones who actually prefers tests because you study and BAM test is done while my perfectionist side comes out writing essays).
