Writer's Block: Bold Textured Looks

What are your rules for mixing different textures of clothing?

"Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee."

Book Meme for somefink to do

It always seems like LJ memes are different from other memes, and that I'll be stepping on toes when I *noink* them, but this one looked fun, so I'll just snatch this discretely.

Because it is the third today, I'm going to do the first three. 

Day 1: I could have done with a thousand more in A Series of Unfortunate Events. I mean, Mr. Snicket ended them so beautifully, but at the same time, I think I would trade my end of series hour long cry fest for another book or two. 

If I ever have kids, those will be some of the first books I read to them, because I want my children to have dry humor, a sense of irony, and to not suffer the slings and arrows that come with wide-eyed optimism. 

And while it's not a series, I would just like to take this opportunity to tell vampires that, unless they're Eric Northman, they all need to stop assassining the minds of America's youth. (Eric Northman, it must be noted, may do anything he likes to America's youth, so long as I'm included)

Day 2: This series: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skulduggery_Pleasant_(series)

Skulduggery Pleasant is the shit. Again with the wry, raw humor of young adult fiction. Every character in these books is essentially a vessel for completely ridiculous, wise-cracking humor. 

Also, skeleton detective. It's just too brilliant to be true.

Day 3: eh. I'll do this later. Remind me to do this later. Right now I have to see if I've actually read an entire book in the past twelve months. 

So, uh... Looks like my dad has lung cancer. 
So, there are three gas stations between my campus and my house. I actually have a life ban from one of them (which doesn't really matter because I'd never give those pricks my money anyway!) and another is a teeny tiny bit out of the way. So, on my way home from the school I stopped at the usual station to get a couple gallons of gas and some junk food.

I was pumping gas and listening to This American Life when I noticed some guy a couple pumps away staring at me. Usually I like to adopt the whatev, man, I'm pretty, let him stare attitude, but he was actually really creepy. I was already formulating a plan: fucking run like crazy and take the long, looong way home.

But then he left. He left and I watched him pull out of the parking lot and go away. So I figured that it'd be safe to run in and get my Flamin' Hot Cheetos anyway.

So I pull right up to the best parking spot in the lot and walk in. I grab my food and wandered over to the candy aisle when all of the sudden he's there, pocket-jerking like he has the last penis on earth and trying to romance me with lovely little phrases like "you're sexy. You're bald. That's cool. You're SO *Unf* sexy."

I decided the best thing to do would be to buy my stuff and ask the attendant to stall while I made my getaway, which I guess worked well because he still wasn't out when I pulled out. I took my time and the long, long, long, detouring way home anyway.

What the fuck is wrong with people and why can't I ever attract a normal sort of guy ever? GRRRRRRRR
Why do I keep attracting the exact same person in different bodies? Like. NO VARIATION. WHATSOEVER.

I think I'm just a boy. I think that's my problem. I want a boy relationship. And I don't want to date little bitches. I just want SPACE and SANITY and I don't want to have to OWE ANYONE ANYTHING and I don't want to be OBLIGATED to give you some stupid fucking reason as to why I DON'T PARTICULARLY FEEL LIKE BEING AT YOUR GODDAMNED BECK AND CALL.

No, I don't owe you a reason as to why I'm not texting you back. 

No, I don't owe you an explanation as to why I'm annoyed. 

No, I don't owe you fucking ANYTHING.

Jesus Christ. 

Little bitches be gettin' on my nerve. 

The Hour Limit

I think there's something wrong with the boys' internal clocks. I feel like there is an hour limit to how long you can know one before he releases a whole lotta crazy. I swear to God, I just had a flood of awkward, ill-conceived moral notions, "anger management issues," and ridiculous attempts to impress me. Dude, bro. Not fucking cool. 

I give up. 

Seriously dude, what am I supposed to think when you tell me that "I get angry and punch refrigerators"   besides  "epic fucking doucherod?" No. Not even a douche. Not even a tool. A dork. Just a fucking baby of a dork.


Seven years ago today

 Seven years ago today my dad shot my dog, stashed the body in the trunk of the car, drove my sister to her piano lesson, and then threw the body away. 

I would have forgotten completely if it weren't for the boy I'm talking to right now. We've been comparing life stories. He said "wow, you didn't swear at your parents until you were twelve?! you little angel!" to which I replied "yeah, well, I was almost thirteen. It was thirteen days before my thirte-- Holy shit."

Life. What are you doing to me?!
 If someone doesn't dig the funk out from between my eyes, I may implode. 

Eh. The only thing that's really eating my grape is the grape not getting eaten. 



 Do you really have to explore this drama in my facebook feed?

So, recently I've been hanging out with a lot of lesbians (WHY CAN'T I BE ATTRACTED TO PUSSY!?)

Anyway, apparently one couple is having a little ~tiff!~ over cocaine or heroin or something. Seriously, though, I DON'T NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT. I don't need the thirty second intervals between "help me" and "I just snooped because I wasn't sure," and "[she's]  been lying still talking to the life destroyer"

I think the really awkward part is that I'm actually MUCH better friends with the perpetrator. AWKWARD.

I dunno. I guess it's my lack of sleep, her lack of punctuation, and my sorry single ass all combining to make this a very irksome display.


I never thought that

 I'd be the kind of girl who would be so filled with adoration as to vow to do literally ANYTHING for a man, but Stephen Fry, you've turned me into one of those girls.
