Quote of the day….


Mr. and Mrs. Loving

Cheesy Song of the Day, December 23:
If This World Were MineLuther Vandross & Cheryl Lynn; Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

There is no shame in my saying that we all want to be loved by someone. As I look back over my life in romance, I don’t feel I’ve ever had that. I have been the only one that was unaware of the fraud in a few of these circumstances blindly. When you get divorced, all the truths that come out, you sit there and you go, What the fuck was I doing? What was I doing believing that this person was invested in this way? Which is a fantastically strong humiliation in the best sense. It can make somebody very bitter and very hard and closed off, but I find it does the opposite to me.

Got To Be RealCheryl Lynn

I know pole dancing strengthens your abdominals.

I know paying attention to bullsh*t is counterproductive.

I know there will always be a long ass  line at Family Dollar. ALWAYS.

I know I have a sink full of dirty dishes.  I’ll wash them…eventually.

I know women need to be saying this 24/7 to the politicians who believe in Legitimate Rape.

I know meditation helps me get through the day.

I know I burnt my dinner.

I know Caitlin Moran’s How To Be A Woman book is funny and she totally punked out by refusing to even ask Lena Dunham about her insular, myopic TV show.  Cultural discourse is supposed to be challenging and uncomfortable, not ass kissy.

I know I am grateful for Stephen Colbert!

I know compassion is easier to manage than free floating rage. Not that free floating rage doesn’t have its place in my life but I’m enjoying embracing compassion before the rage.

I know if I get a dog, I’m naming him or her Nebula Five.
