@cosmia I have had too long and exhausting a day to read anything, so I'm just going to assume, based on the images, that the answer to "What the hell should you do with your life?" is "Eat tacos."
I AM ALREADY A SUCCESS STORY.
@LilRedCorvette There is something so... weirdly adventurous about that movie. I mean, the colonialism is so distasteful, but Blixen goes out there all "This will be awesome! Just like Denmark, but HOT!" and then it's totally different and she loves it ANYWAY and the palms and the porches and the dog of a husband. And then she sticks it out and has ADVENTURES in all caps and Robert Redford. When they break up and she's leaving and the house has been packed and emptied and she says this one line about "I think we should have just left it this way always"... I have to go lay down.
@par_parenthese Sadly, I cannot make this one, but I am just popping in to say BALL AND BISCUIT YES PLEASE ALL THE FANCY HIPSTER DRINKS IN MY FAAAAACE.
Sorry, I'm better now.
@Emmanuelle Cunt Also, now I wish I knew where the hell this free gimme tape they handed out was, since it does not appear to exist on the internet.
@aeroaeroaero I am not even going to watch, I'm just going to assume it's Kurt Loder's bit about "That's not what 'casualty' means. Idiot."
@Emmanuelle Cunt I'd forgotten she was involved with Lilith Fair at all. I went to the first LF when it came through Dallas, and it was all Sarah Mac and Lisa Loeb. I do recall everybody got a mixtape of songs from up-and-coming girl groups like Save Ferris. Also: biore strip samples. WE WERE MESMERIZED, Y'ALL.
@parallel-lines ::whispers:: i think i have a crush on you now.
So, who wants to come to my house and be selfish and fine-wine-stinky with me? I have expensive cheeses and a couch that loves me.
@frigwiggin I gave up worrying about that. My best friend insists on putting me on speakerphone when her kid's in the car. Elliot knows a lot of new and inappropriate words now.
@shoop Oh, it's totally true. Honestly, it's just as easy to fall in love with competent and sane as childish and bonkers-bananas-crazypants. And there is no "one." I mean, come on, how unfair would THAT math be??
@wharrgarbl OH totally. But I'm definitely giving any woman over the age of 18 who doesn't have a bank account the side eye.
