ferrygirlsearch: Hello. For the past four months I have been…



ferrygirlsearch:

Hello. For the past four months I have been regretting my decision to not talk to you on the ferry and now I’ve decided to do something about it. It was August 8th when we first saw each other on the express bus out of Vancouver to horseshoe bay. We both took the ferry to Departure bay. Halfway through the trip the boat stopped for a safety drill and we saw each other on the upper deck. You were taking pictures and then leaned on the rail beside me. As much as I wanted to, I never said anything, and I’ve never regretted anything more than that. I think you are the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen and I would very much like to meet you.

If you are her, Email me at: ferrygirlsearch@gmail.com

Reblog this to help me find her. Please.

This is unbearably sad.

“Perhaps I am no one.
True, I have a body
and I cannot escape from it.
I would like to fly out of my head,
but that is out of the question.”

“New tumblr idea: noonecaresaboutyourballs dot tumblr dot com, which would catalog all the completely random and frankly meaningless testicular metaphors plaguing public debate. Y/N?”

 Yes but I kind of want to call it: BALLS OUT or BALLS TO THE WALL or IN THE BALLROOM

“as somebody who has been open about every fucked up thing in my life, i continually grapple with this conflict:
is my life more fucked up than most everyone else? or am i just more open with it? if everyone else is keeping their fucked-up-ness to themselves, should i do the same thing?”

 I got no answer for this, but lots of love for you, Lady Alithea.

The Decider

I remember an exercise given to abortion providers at a conference I attended: “If you only had one abortion left to give,” we were asked, “to whom would you give it? A woman with HIV, a twelve-year-old, a forty-eight-year-old, a woman who was raped, a woman who wants to finish her PhD? What about the woman who just doesn’t want a baby?” The answer is, of course, that all of these reasons for making the choice to have an abortion are equally valid. Why a woman makes a decision to have an abortion is not the deciding issue. She is making the choice that is right for her, and that is what matters.

“as far as w&p goes, we seem to be in pretty good shape and what’s the point of a feminist…”

“as far as w&p goes, we seem to be in pretty good shape and what’s the point of a feminist collective if not pitching in? i recommend you eat well, sleep well, do something luxurious, and possibly buy a uke. in fact, if you tell me your mailing address i’ll send you one. also, if you tell me a song you like, i will dedicate a cover to you and post it to fb. sending you a hug.”

barbara browning is, as jeanne told me the very first day of my program, the best. who else advises buying a ukelele as a recovery aid? but then, bb never says what i expect. “congratulations!” she exclaimed, smiling, when i solemnly announced that i had just broken up with my boyfriend of 10 years. i have been laughing about this ever since. what song should i have her cover?  (via karaj)

Not me: What's your reading next week about?

Me: The 90s.

Not me: 1990s or 1890s?
