linearsequence: Great article about bisexuality and how you can flip-flop between presenting yourself as straight or otherwise. The same way many women have trained themselves to sidle past catcalls with downcast eyes, I find myself wielding my apparent heterosexuality as a defensive mechanism against people who might take the fact that I love women as a personal offense. Small wonder, then,...
[[MORE]] I may have gone and stood in the epic thunderstorm at 2:30am this morning. Fuck being cliche, I love storms. It’s so different watching them from inside vs. being out in them. Both are good, but it was nice to get all chilly and then hop into a warm bed. In other news, I seem to have caught something. So I’ve been curled up in bed the past couple of days, wishing I could...

That’s crudely put, but… If we’re not supposed to dance, Why all this music?– Gregory Orr, from “To Be Alive” (via the-final-sentence)
dictionaryofobscuresorrows: n. the intense heat on the skin of a sleeping person, a radioactive byproduct of an idle mind humming with secret delusions which then vaporize when plunged into the cooling bath of reality, thus preventing a meltdown that could endanger those close by, who tolerate the risk because it gives them energy.
dictionaryofobscuresorrows: n. the habit of forgetting how important someone is to you until you see them again in person, making you wish your day would begin with a “previously on” recap of your life’s various plot arcs, and end with “to be continued…” after those will-they-won’t-they cliffhanger episodes that air just before the show goes back into months of repeats.
the hesitation waltz
dictionaryofobscuresorrows: n. the act of deciding whether to give a departing acquaintance a hug or a handshake, calculated by measuring your relative orbits, how long it takes your signals to bounce back, and the proximity of a close friend who just gave them a hug, whose massive gravitational force could slingshot you into a long-distance wave.
dictionaryofobscuresorrows: n. an emotion you haven’t felt in years that you might have forgotten about completely if your emotional playlist hadn’t been left on shuffle—a feeling whose opening riff tugs on all your other neurons like a dog on a leash waiting for you to open the door.
Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes!
[[MORE]] It’s kind of bizarre how quickly I get disconnected from people when they start talking about their Christianity. It’s one thing when people are being jerks about it, but when it’s a family member…I really don’t know where I’m going with this, it’s just weird. I want to be able to relate, but as soon as Jesus or the bible is brought up some sort...

Interesting article at the above link. It’d be cool for this to be available for people in the US. Besides, I doubt it’d have nearly as much trouble politically as all the recent bullshit over the pill.
