"I didn’t watch the whole documentary. After a few episodes it was too painful. I kept wanting to scream at Pam. It took me so long to do so many important things. It’s just hard to accept that I spent so many years being less happy than I could have been. Jim was five feet from my desk and it took me four years to get to him. It would be great if people saw this documentary and learned from my mistakes. Not that I’m a tragic person, I’m really happy now; but it would just make my heart soar if someone out there saw this and she said to herself ‘Be strong, trust yourself, love yourself, conquer your fears, just go after what you want and act fast because life just isn’t that long.’"
#reblogging for reasons
fwiw, if all goes as planned, I *should* be seeing the three bands I reblogged today, the Feelies, B&S and YLT, a total of seven times in early July, which is so unimaginably perfect that I’m not going to believe it’s really going to happen until it happens.

The bourgeoisie, historically, has played a revolutionary part to end all feudal, idyllic relationships.

"The human digestive track is like the Amtrak line from Seattle to Los Angeles: transit time is about thirty hours, and the scenery in the last leg is pretty monotonous."
I know the stretch pants look has been (back) in style for quite a while now, but it still strikes me as odd that I can roll out of bed in stretch pants and a big shirt, then change into another pair of the same brand of stretch pants, a slightly nicer big shirt, and tall boots, and somehow this counts as work attire.
No wonder all I want to do at work is nap.
