1. Still use same type of curlers

2 Still have same haircut

3. Have blue version of that couch

4. Same endtable, lamp, and ornaments

My aesthetic is a combination of hoarding, knowing a good thing when I see it, and general stubbornness. I was pretty cute tho. (As were bro and sis)

See this? This here is a footstone. I am absolutely going to have one of these, and it will absolutely say ‘n.b.’ That is how committed I am to footnotes, people.

I applaud this attention to detail. Mine will say “Op.cit.”

"Winter is for women— The woman, still at her knitting, At the cradle of Spanish walnut, Her body…"

Winter is for women—
The woman, still at her knitting,
At the cradle of Spanish walnut,
Her body a bulb in the cold and too dumb to think.


Will the hive survive, will the gladiolas
Succeed in banking their fires
To enter another year?
What will they taste of, the Christmas roses?
The bees are flying. They taste the spring.

Sean and I in this month’s Conde Nast Traveler!

That’s nothing. Wait’ll you guys see my upcoming page in Cat Fancy, paying tribute to all my cat travels and inspiration. I got cats on my steering wheels too, but I’ve also got cats in my truck about six cats deep. Cats only be flying private.

CAT. MAN. DO.

"This ancient city is made of stone and stone walls that have not fallen yet. Like paradise it is…"

“This ancient city is made of stone and stone walls that have not fallen yet. Like paradise it is bounded by rivers, and contains fabulous beasts. Most of them have heads. If you drink from the wells, and there are many, you might live forever, but there is no guarantee you will live forever as you are. You might mutate. The waters might not agree with you. They don’t tell you this. I came to this city to escape. This city is full of towers to climb and climb, and to climb faster and faster, marvelling at the design and dreaming of the view from the top. At the top there is a keen wind and everything is so far away it’s impossible to say what is what. There is no one to discuss it with. Cats can count on the fire brigade, and Rapunzel was lucky with her hair. Wouldn’t it be nice to sit on the ground again? I came to this city to escape.
If the demons lie within they travel with you.
Everyone thinks their own situation most tragic. I am no exception.”

"It was not gender discrimination or sexist oppression that kept privileged women from working…"

“It was not gender discrimination or sexist oppression that kept privileged women from working outside the home; it was the fact that work open to them would have been the same low-paid unskilled labor open to all women. This elite group of highly educated females stayed at the home rather than do the type of work large numbers of middle-income and working-class women were doing.”
