are you ever in the middle of saying something or showing someone something and you realize that literally no one cares 

I’ve literally stopped talking mid-word in a story and no one has noticed.

This has happened to me on more than one occasion.

I’m craving moon pies now.

This is obviously very, very important to read. 

West Virginia: Shoofly Pie
Virginia: Chess Pie
North Carolina: Sweet Potato Pie
Kentucky: Bread Pudding
Tennessee: Banana Pudding

We got peach cobbler, which I would say is accurate. 

This list is fugazi. They have some arbitrary rule that two states can’t have the same dessert, so they gave New Hampshire whoopie pies because Yankee Magazine said theirs are the best, then they gave Maine blueberry pie, when no one who’s actually from Maine would pick that as the state’s dessert over whoopie pies. Maybe you should ask Mainers what our state dessert is before assigning one to us.

Are whoopie pies the same thing as moon pies?


"He does not despise real woods because he has read of enchanted woods: the reading makes all real woods a little enchanted. This is a special kind of longing. The boy reading the fairy-tale desires and is happy in the very fact of desiring."

whenever somebody you care about is sad, do you ever just desperately wish that they didn’t listen to the same music as you? like, how wise and sage-like would you sound quoting modest mouse lyrics to somebody heartsick?

This was quietly hilarious.




"Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen."

Mine would be a 5 book trilogy with books as big as Harry Potter
