Everyone’s going to be walking and talking about this Aaron Sorkin parody from tonight’s new Inside Amy Schumer.

This is just so damn perfect.

How John Green Became Involved In Lower League English Football

On Poverty

Disclaimer: I have been trying to write this for almost a year and I’m tremendously dissatisfied with the result. It is three and a half thousand words long and has been drafted and revised so many times that I give up and release it from this endless, painful gestation.

I have never owned a table.

Sure, the place I live in has a table. It’s a glass table and it’s considerably better than the slightly wobbly wooden table in the previous place I lived in but, being glass, I’m perpetually terrified it will break and then I’ll have to pay for it. Then I’ll have paid for a table and still never have actually owned one.

I couldn’t tell you how much a table costs, but I did buy the cheapest and most basic desk for £50 once. I have a feeling I’d be charged a lot more than that if this table broke.

That philosophy extends to everything around me where I live, where I have lived: I don’t own it, but I will be paying for it if something goes wrong. There is a special sort of added excitement to this, since most of the places I’ve lived in have had all sorts of things wrong with them already, things from faulty electrics to ill-fitting windows to no doors that will close properly anywhere, that are never addressed. I’ve feared these things as well because I’ve wondered if I’m going to be the tenant who is deemed to be responsible for them, particularly because landladies and landlords seem to be curiously divorced from the properties they own. They always live far away, or they’re out of town or they’re overseas again. One landlady looked around a flat I was renting from her with surprise and awe and bafflement, failing to recognise many of its features.

Femslash Friday: Rizzo and Frenchy 4-ever

Apr 3

My friend Kathryn watches the Goat Simulator trailer and reports back to me with authority. “You will not like this game,” she says. “It’s violent. The goat knocks things over and blows things up. Your goats don’t do that.”

Kathryn should know; she is partly responsible for the first bottle baby goat on the farm, but I don’t bring that up. She can, however, recall all the things she’s learned vicariously about goats in the past six years.

Goatmyth by goatmyth, she debunks them all: “Goats are picky eaters; they do not eat everything. They like Rolling Rock, not Natty Light. They use their tongues for flirting, not for dragging people into oncoming traffic. They are affectionate creatures who fall asleep on your lap.”

She articulates, “They.Are Not.Killing.Machines.” She harrumphs—indignant at my obvious lack of respect.

I have a lot of respect for and have gotten a lot out of how vulnerable you can be in your writing. It’s been a strong influence on me even in my own non-writing fields. Can you talk a bit about where that comes from and how you think about how much of yourself you put out there in a piece?

"What I’m saying is, there’s nothing to be lost via openness and receptivity, and everything to gain. I’ve never actually hurt people by being open; I’ve only hurt others by closing myself off."

Fucking worth remembering always.

Coming to Terms with Transitioning

This sticker is on a hole-puncher here at work. I’m slightly disturbed that a sticker like that exists AND that someone felt the needed to affix it to the hole-punch. State workers man.

Frankly I feel stupid adding my own ‘OMG tho, Hole’ to Kieron’s A++ post from a few days ago but then again, I’m not that smart and I have stupid stuff to say about Hole.
