oldie but a goldie
the good word from a friend:
“One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am — a reluctant enthusiast… a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your...
what an embarassment
these G8 G20 protests come across as nothing but absolute lazyness; an unproductive, uncreative approach to communicating with our leaders. if we’re going to be demanding so much of them (money, peace, attentiveness), perhaps it’s time we invest ourselves into being attentive over the money it costs when we neglect to protest peacefully. just sayin’.
roadies - remember this?
i still laugh at andrew’s rage, colin o’shea’s typical wittyness and saren’s poopy pants allllll the time.
friends didn’t nickname me lil’ g without reason: throughout highschool i subscribed to the (mostly embarassing) hip-hop fashion culture, which has (thankfully) transitioned to simple appreciation for hip-hop culture overall. ‘still d.r.e’ is still one of my favourite songs/music videos of all time, i still don’t know the wu-tang secret, & i quite literally...
so far today, i've thought:
1. i wonder if my lil’ cousin the demon seed will notice if i suffocate him with a pillow in his sleep - lovingly, of course 2. you are driving an 18 wheeler, which means i can hear you driving behind me without the use of your obnoxious and embarasssing horn. FO. 3. am i awake? 4. i’m going to california on friday, then dominican in july, then across canada. 5. i’m getting a...
summer shed my winter skin
365 days of pained plans have been thrown out the proverbial window, and in their place rests a brand new map and my curious feet to scale it: what have i gone and done? mere days ago i had been reading dossiers on various european countries for the trip of a lifetime next summer, and now i’m re-packing my suitcase and revisiting life on the road - AGAIN - for an organization that has embraced me...
& TG for ice cube’s convenient, ridiculous existance
if betty white decides to join the (now) trio of Golden Girls up above, I’M GOING TO BE SO PISSED!
women's portrait series
I’ve been an advocate for many things, but never before have I given consideration to how utterly warped our collective perception on beauty is. As if the critique of outsiders isn’t unbearable enough, so many women waste time (and money) scrutinizing and manipulating themselves into manufactured byproducts of what the world says we should be. And I say: hell nah. To be specific, this doesn’t...
and this one is getting to be increasingly unbearable. the culprit? tim hortons. the crime? putting napkins IN the donut bag, where it becomes an overachiever and absorbs either all the honey or all that wonderful icing. i’ve paid my 90 cents and i want everything that cloud of decorated dough has to offer me. bonus peeve: auto corrected spelling. GF.
this is funny, you should laugh
