Aaah ! Quel bonheur ! J’aime bien la vie, j’adore ça !
Aaah ! What a joy ! I like life, I love it !” —
Capucine, happy to go to bed with a kitty laying next to her. (via capucha)
This child blows my mind. I wish more people - myself included - were as passionate about life & love & happiness as she is. She reminds me to enjoy the small details that make life really beautiful (like kitties in my bed!)
This tumblr is the 2nd thing that comes up when you google “tumblr nude girls” and I feel great about it.
- Rob, laying in bed laughing at me, which I should be thoroughly used to by now.
- Me: What's so funny?
- Rob: You typing.
- Me: What's funny about me typing?
- Rob: It sounds like a bunch of little spiders.
- Me: ...spiders?
- Rob: Yeah, happy ones! When you type it sounds like a bunch of happy spiders are tap dancing on the keys!
- Big scary spider update: Rob poked some holes in the top of the ham container last night & named the spider Chester. Then he took it to work this morning so he could let it go in nature. I think he's a closet Buddhist.
Robert Fulghum was right. If you never absorbed any advice in your life except what you learned in kindergarten, you might still be ok. I think if everyone dropped the social expectations and the religious rhetoric and the politicking and went back to basics we would all be living pretty nice & easy.
These are my personal commandments, as boiled down as they could possibly be:
1. Don’t hurt each other.
3. Clean up after yourself.
4. Don’t be greedy.
5. Try new things.
6. Say what you mean.
7. Mean what you say.
8. Pay attention.
9. Respect yourself & others.
10. Try your hardest.
I wrote this as a comment in this mofo Jake’s blog, in response to an anti-prop 8 rally he attended in Chicago with his partner. I like how it turned out and maybe if I post this I won’t feel compelled to reblog every emotional anti-prop 8 thing I see all week… maybe. Here it goes.
“[Can] you think of any other group of people more devoted to making others miserable and unhappy than the religious zealots? (Besides terrorists & politicians, of course, but if you think about it they’re religious zealots too.) I’m not surprised that atheism is on the rise. We, the young whippersnappers of the world, have gotten pretty good at sniffing out hypocrisy and these Bible-thumping lunatics are filled to the brim with it.
I don’t mean to stomp all over any specific religion because I’m not even sure what religion these pro-Prop 8 people actually think they’re practicing where it’s ok to judge & hate & be closed-minded & interfere with the lives of people whose lives don’t interfere with theirs & set double standards & to twist the supposed “word of God” into something that supports & excuses their hateful beliefs.
I also don’t mean to make a blanket statement (like, religion = all bad) but clearly it’s the only thing in this Prop 8 equation that might possibly explain how difficult & controversial this decision has been. If religion was truly left out of this it would come down to economics & fairness, both of which would demand that gay marriage be legal. To me, this shows that religion is NOT being used as a tool to help enhance people’s lives, but as a weapon to attack people who are different and that makes me SO ANGRY. Stupid humans. Leave it to us to take something so inherently good & pure and turn it into something so evil that it has nearly wrecked all of humanity.”
Then I wrote a new set of commandments. Stay tuned.
I admit it. I go all fangirl when people start talking about the L Word.
Go ahead and question my sexuality, I don’t even care. I’m more concerned about the terrible picture they used on the Showtime banner for the official website. Six seasons of beautiful women looking incredible and that’s the best they could come up with?
