Actually my response to everything to at all times.
Actual legit train of thought I just had while watching this commercial:
Wheatus -Teenage Dirtbag
Everyone downloaded this song on Limewire, right?
PERSONAL ANTHEM. Every time I get really sick of hearing someone sing “The First Noel” after being introduced to me, I think about how many times my buds have started “Teenage Dirtbag” sing-alongs in public places and everything seems worth it. Want me to dig your band? Cover this. Want me to dig you? Dedicate it to me.
Tomorrow is my last official day working at the shelter. I assumed leaving was going to be fairly easy/normal, but we all got together today and they said a bunch of really nice things about me, which made me realize how odd it is that suddenly I’m not really going to be part of their lives anymore. I cope with real feelings by doing things for other people though, so, now this is happening.
Anyone else have that moment where you have the best intentions towards having anything that could count as an actual grown up meal, but then you get to the kitchen and look back fondly on those five seconds when you forgot that you actually have no idea how to be an adult?
In Japanese folklore, Gashadokuro, also known as Odokuro, are giant skeletons, fifteen times taller than an average person. They can reach huge sizes (up to about 90 feet tall), and are constructed from the bones of people who have died from starvation. Their bones are collected into this giant skeleton creature which is filled with intense anger and a thirst for human blood. He wanders around at night, grinding his teeth and making a “gachi gachi” sound. The giant skeleton towers so high above the ground and walks so quietly that he can be almost invisible. The only warning you get when the giant skeleton is near is a strange and inexplicable ringing in your ears.
If the Gashadokuro finds you, he will reach down with his bony hand and snatch you off the ground. Then he will pluck your head off and suck the blood out of your headless body until his thirst is quenched.
Paging Leah/Zani/Kaitlyn/everyone to this post to appreciate the newest folklore second-love of my life (Krampus is still reigning king of my heart).
In And Out Of Lightness - Young Widows
Tried to make a summer specific list of life goals today, but gave up when I realized half of it was just a list of albums that need to be playing while someone touches my butt. Get at me if you like Young Widows, buds.
Also, does this song make anyone else think of the Foot Clan, or is that just a weird thing my brain does?

Charles Bukowski, Ham on Rye
This remains one of the only things I bothered to memorize in highschool that I still manage to remember.
“And yet I knew that what I saw wasn’t as simple and good as it appeared. There was a price to be paid for it all, a general falsity, that could easily be believed, and could be the first step down a dead-end street. The band began to play again and the boys and girls began to dance again and the lights revolved overhead throwing shades of gold, the red, then blue, then green, then gold again on the couples. As I watched them I said to myself, someday my dance will begin. When that day comes I will have something that they don’t have.
But then it got to be too much for me. I hated them. I hated their beauty, their untroubled youth, and as I watched them dance through the magic coloured pools of light, holding each other, feeling so good, little unscathed children, temporarily in luck, […]”
I just used the phrase “MVP of gettin’ that D” in casual conversation and now there’s no reason for me to speak to anyone about anything ever again because I have no sage wisdom left to share.
