pretension

Hello, I made this new poetry meme: I can’t maintain my pretension for very long.  It’s about dictionfucking.  I think it’s a masterpiece, but no one else seems to pay it much mind.  Ah well. I took a public domain dancer pic and put it thought a filter with flares.  Then I cropped out that… Read More »

numbers

“First of all, he likes us.  Second of all, he needs us,” I told Ming.  “Fourth of all, why would he even want to do that?” In the bathroom, I realized I’d skipped item number three.  Oops.  In my dismay, I erred on my numbers. dreams Do you read in your dreams?  I often read… Read More »

art lessons

My friend’s dad made some teaching videos about pottery and sculpture.  Art lessons are cool.  The videos are in Brazilian language. Please consider viewing the art lessons, if you would like to learn.  Most of the videos have closed captioning.  So even if you don’t speak this variant of Portuguese, you can understand a few… Read More »

language

  “Hear what I mean, not what I say,” is something Ming has been telling me for our entire relationship.  We’d have a disagreement, with lots of language flying and emotions in the air, and I would get confused, listening carefully to his words. “What do you mean, listen to what you mean?  How do… Read More »

Hello.  I’ve been thinking about sports bar vs sports bra.  Very similar terms, huh?  But very different things. sports bra A sports bra is a garment meant to contain breasts.  If I’m going to run or play soccer, I might want to stop my breasts from bouncing around a lot.  I might prefer my breasts… Read More »

non-violent communication

I’ve had a problem with non-violent communication for a long time.  It’s been used to hurt me.  Also it creeps me out.  There was the “bunch of middle class white people in a room, talking about feelings and patting each other on the back” factor.  The real me was not allowed, for sure: skeptical, complicated,… Read More »

kindness

Been thinking about kindness.  To be kind, you have to be curious.  Otherwise you’re going to treat people how you think is kind, but you’ll often hurt them, since people need different things.  Curiosity is necessary to know people, and you need to know people to be kind to them. Being able to communicate is… Read More »

movies

“You know how movies have previews?” Ming asked. “Yeah–you mean trailers?” I asked. “Yeah,” he said.  “There was one for a movie called Mobius that caught our eye.” “Is it about a strip club?” I asked. “No,” he said. “What’s it about?” “It’s about a vampire,” Ming said. “Oh!  Are they a stripper?” “No!” Ming… Read More »

heavy

Hey, I would like to express a preference to you.  It’s that you don’t use heavy to mean bad.  I don’t want to be language policey, but it hurts me.  Thanks for considering. Heavy can be really good, like me.  This is my body–I love my body, and if you don’t, that’s ok.  But please… Read More »

weed

I wanted to add about sedation and weed that it’s not about purity, for me.  I don’t believe in purity–the whole idea creeps me out, like some kind of yuck Hitler eugenics shit.  No way.  I’m not pure and don’t aspire to be. Some people are like that, being vegetarian, vegan, or anti-sex.  I see… Read More »
