I took apart my microwave yesterday and today—I mean my old microwave, the one I have had since 1987 because I am older than time and also I keep everything. It finally died earlier this year, right before my surgery, so Sarah bought me a new one at Target and brought it over so I could eat. That was like 5 months ago but the old one has been here ever since because it’s too heavy for me to move. People are always/often helping me or offering to help me, it is so lovely, but I kept feeling like, ugh I can’t ask someone to carry this monster downstairs. When I realized I could take it apart I was unreasonably excited! Mostly I used my screwdriver and some pliers, and I had to cut through a lot of wires which was somewhat terrifying even though they couldn’t have had any current running through them (or could they?). I took an electronics class last year and I vaguely considered seeing if I could fix it, but eviscerating it was so much more fun. Goodbye, microwave, may I undo and forsake many more things in your wake, no matter how heavy they are.
Julia Pott’s incredible short film, Belly.
“We should rescue him.”
“Don’t want to.”
That sums it up
This reminds me of a discussion we had in school, and one girl was talking about living in fear of her safety because she is a girl, and this guy chimed in and was all “It’s hard for guys too! I’m so awkward around girls! It’s embarrassing!” Yeah, not the same thing, exactly?
This reminds me of an article about online (heterosexual) dating that I read a while ago. It listed men’s and women’s worst fears about meeting someone from online. The highest ranked fear that men had was that their date would be fat, whereas the highest ranked fear that women had was that their date would turn out to be violent and kill them.
I think that says a lot.
We bought a blender so now donut summer is milkshake summer.
do you ever wonder what you would look like at your full potential like perfect hair and clear skin and a perfect body...
plot twist: yahoo buys tumblr and we get proper blocking features, lockable posts, a sent folder in messages/fanmail with a better interface, ability to search multiple tags, removal of the post and message limits, proper search engines for likes/archives and removing that bloody "reblog as a link" option.
some guy asked if he could get “some head” and biked menacingly near me
