A straight white man goes into the jungle and stumbles across a beautiful iridescent beetle, completely unfamiliar to him. “What the fuck, is this some kind of tumblr social justice shit?”
Camp Songs, Oppression, and Inclusion (Part 1, Why do Camp Songs Matter?)
Anyone who’s spent time at camps know that camp songs are the shit. You know them or you learn them, and a good time is had by attempting to figure out exactly how quickly you can sing the bungalow song. And, at the same…
today I was walking with the kids across the street to go to the FIA and it takes longer for all of them to cross than the walk light so we have a staff people stop traffic…
so I taught the kids to chant
“WHO’S STREETS?/OUR STREETS!”
Torch Bar’s burger was ranked at mlive as among the top ten in the state, and I am enthusiastically not mad about it.
I only read this to make sure Stella’s was on there. pffft #5
I eat at the Torch sometimes with my professor from Turkey and he doesn’t believe in frys so he gets a Torch Burger with a side of Torch Burger
I don’t know how I found this band. Been #1 in my tabs since the last time I closed Chrome, which must’ve been over a month ago. This always happens. Links fester and I promise I’ll get around to them as soon as I can, opening new tabs to new distractions all the while. How did I find you, NONA? Maria? Everett? Daniel? Calvin? Dayna? Pitchfork? Who’s my inside line on Pennsylvanian indie rock? Maybe this is the ideal way to hear a new band. No context. No clue.
good band, good peoples, only punx I have ever met who care about golf
I know the purpose of telling myself over and over again “$250” is that that’s a stupid tiny amount of money to pay to have a place to live (esp a lovely place to live) and it’s supposed to convince me that I shouldn’t worry about it too much because I know based on empirical evidence…
I feel this so hard… like I now have 2 jobs and at each of them I make the a months rent in one day… but that’s also because I live in Flint and work in Bloomfield Hills, (and also work in Flint)…
if I start thinking about paying rent it gets really scary… money in general is really scary but it makes working so much better because I can tell my self if I can just make it through the next 10 hours (2 of which I get time and a half) then I will have a place to live (and cats to chill with) for a hole month.
also my friend who I work for at like special events and stuff buys me Amy’s samosa’s, and my other job I get to eat with the kids so I get 3 snacks a day, and like all the left over vegetables and chips and stuff.
if not for student loans and car insurance I could potentially start saving money, because while things are going well right now if I ended up in jail again or paying court fees or having to take care of someone in an emergency I would be kinda screwed.
Just a reminder that 166 Guantanamo Bay detainees have been on hunger strike for more than three months now, & 43 are being force-fed in what doctors have just called “a medical ethics-free zone.”
