On Love and Pro Con Lists
On a scale of one to ten, ten being the kind of day that the pages of history have taught us are best spent lying in bed*, today was an 11 in the way that only a completely negative human being who really just wants an excuse to lie in bed and drink the rum her friends brought her from Mexico that she was planning on saving for a special occasion can see it as an 11. Due to the rum, and the toe (see below), and the general ho-hum vibe surrounding me, I don’t have enough energy for anything more inspiring than a list.

*”Philadelphia Story” — One of my favorite movies — and I swear to goodness if you ask me if “it’s that movie about AIDS” I will drop kick you so hard you’ll end up in 1983 where you and your terrible haircut belong.
