stananigans: No matter how awesome your outfits are, at some point, you will wear something someone else thinks is dumb. No matter how awesome someone else thinks their outfits are, you may think their outfit is dumb. That’s just the way of the world. Don’t be rude about it and I figure you’re covered.

bruised-ghost: this is really selfish but why can’t mental illness be like any other kind of sickness where you go to hospital and your loved ones come and give you flowers and tell you that they love you and hold your hand and make sure you get better why doesn’t that happen instead of awkward silences and embarrassing tears and messy bedsheets and a bunch of other stuff no one actually...

wheelr: A few months ago a friend of mine asked me if I consider myself a feminist, and responded with uncomprehending outrage when I said that I did not. There were a lot of us in that conversation, so it was hard for me to explain my position in the ensuing crossfire. My friend was…

Why I Love My Mother
Politician at door: (blah blah blah)...and my strong commitment to traditional family values, as my wife of 28 years will attest.
Shade's mom: Sir, I don't care if you have orgies every Tuesday night so long as you get your job done.
Shade's mom: Also, if "traditional family values" is a sneaky way of saying "anti-gay marriage stance," you should know that my daughter is bisexual, and if I never get to cry at her wedding because some law you passed made her wedding illegal, I will personally see that your wife of 28 years has a lesbian awakening in time for you to discover the virtues of traditional divorce.
Politician: ...you have yourself a nice day, m'am.
buttpower: you never really know someone until you play uno with them and the motherfuckin asshole hits you with a draw four
reasons why she is my best friend:
thegoddamnbatstiles: I’m still having trouble with this. There’s the save children from ravenous prairie dogs route. There’s also heart attack from actually being in Misha’s presence. Ultimately though I feel like your death should either turn into one hell of an urban legend, or one hell of a bar story. Either way…
merrymerryfistmas: I actually love robert pattinson not because he played edward in the twilight series but because he’s a ruthless sarcastic twat and I admire that
Me: I love the names for groups of animals. A murder of crows. An unkindness of ravens.
Otana: From murder to unkindness, I guess we know who the real badasses of the animal kingdom are. What's next, a mild inconvenience of sparrows?
Me: A vague annoyance of robins.
Otana: An oh God fuck off already of pigeons.
