Loose Change

Those thoughts that rattle around

I think I’ve started sleep-walking again

Woke up in a different shirt than I went to sleep in, with my pj top thrown in the laundry basket. Getting this top would have required crossing my room and rummaging through my still rather neat drawers.

I have no memory of changing other than a vague dream which involved ripping off my top (not sure why).

Really hoping that I don’t start waking up places that I didn’t fall asleep again.

Filed under sleep-walking is an adventure but not the fun kind apparently i also talk in my sleep i thought you were supposed to grow out of this shit

My statistics professor believes it is important that a textbook has at least one female contributor so that it is more balanced in its perspective. 

I felt like applauding when I heard that. It warms the cockles of my heart that a prof acknowledges the differences in perspective and that it provides valuable contributions.

Unfortunately (though understandably) the only women with (English) speaking lines in Generation Kill but fortunately she is pretty fucking badass. 

I loved this woman. The way she stood up for herself, for bitching out the Marines in her polite yet pissed off way, she was fantastic. I would’ve loved to have seen a conversation between her and Nate about their differing views on the invasion/war, because she seemed wicked smart and unafraid to speak her mind and I think Nate would love that, to be able to have a debate about everything that’s going on and be able to see a differnt side to Iraqis than just the idiots with guns. Aaaand now I think I’m shipping them. Whoops.

But will you write it? Pretty, pretty please!

You officially piss me off. Driving traffic from your own website to other ones? Why do you run a business?

Tumblr, the only website that would rather have people go somewhere else instead of listening to its users.

GREATEST WE’VE BUILT MY ASS. considering I don’t have like any of my tumblr friends on facebook wow good one david you’re really tearing the site apart.

david i want you to hold your breath for fifteen minutes and then call me from hell


David, I resent the fuck out of your decisions.

I feel like some people need to get out of their own way. If the way people use your website doesn’t quite fit with your vision, so what? People are still using the website.
Maybe the new feature will be great, but maybe they shouldn’t be so dismissive while imposing top-down changes to site usage.

accol replied to your post: I don’t get it…

Especially in high school, I longed to have been born about 25 years earlier so I could have lived through the civil rights movement (as an adult participant). And go to Woodstock. :)

See, Woodstock would be awesome, also participating in the Civil Rights Movement seems like it would be cool beans, but somewhere along the way I’ve realized that I, as a woman, would probably be the one making coffee and doing grunt work while men thanked me for being a doll and then pinched my ass.

The past seems really amazing, in parts, but there isn’t this Golden Age leaving a present where “Oh, strawberries don’t taste as they used to and the thighs of women have lost their clutch!”

I don’t get it…

I really don’t understand people who say they want to live in the past. Really?

Like people who say they want to live in the 1940s, you know, that decade half consumed by WWII. Or the 1950s, that repressive era of McCarthyism, repressive conformity, and Cold War paranoia. And as far as the nineteenth century and those who fantasize about bustling London/New York/Paris/etc., I invite you to imagine the smell of overcrowded, industrialized urban centers with poor waste management.

It’s throwaway statements of false nostalgia that make me think better social history needs to be taught in schools and that the master narrative of our cultural history needs to be seriously examined.

Filed under history is important i'm probably over-thinking this but seriously it's important
