On Apologies and Forgiveness -
I’ve been on Tumblr for 387 days. I’ve made 824 posts. I currently have 61,348 followers.
During my time on this platform I’ve posted many things that were silly, many that were heartfelt and a number of things (either posted here or posted on Twitter and referenced here by others) that were…
Orlando Jones, always a class act - even when he fucks up.
Bonus: Name one event that happened that year.
Reagan, and Return of the Jedi came out in theaters.
Richard Nixon and, as you might imagine, his resignation was kind of a thing that year.
Also, I’m old.
JIMMY CARTER, YO!
Nixon. Roe vs Wade made abortion legal in the United States.
Where I was born: Fulgencio Batista
In the US: Dwight D. Eisenhower
Dr. Zhivago (the book) was published the day after I was born.
My baby called me and told me she is running for Vice President, and wanted to read me her speech.
I couldn’t be more proud of her.So they had the election and she didn’t win, her little heart is so broken. It’s ok though, when she’s changing the world and becomes the president of this fucked up ass country she’ll look back on this. Win or lose I’m my baby’s biggest fan
Would you guys mind doing me a favor? I normally wouldn’t ask you all to do this but would you reblog this so I can show my sister? All of the notes will count as all the votes she didn’t get. I just want her to feel better and I think this would warm her little heart.
Jim C Hines: Despair -
We don’t talk much about the despair, at least not publicly. I think there’s this belief that authors should project an air of confidence, because if we ever admit our neuroses we’ll drive away all of our fans and readers and then nobody will buy our books, and suddenly we’re back in the Black Cloud of Despair™, and oh God this blog post is going to be the one that destroys my career, isn’t it? Why oh why didn’t I write about rainbow-farting unicorns?
Go read the entire essay, because yeah, this. Every single writer I know, including the bestest of sellers, go through this. Repeatedly.
Why was Oedipus against profanity?
Because he kisses his mother with that mouth.
I’m getting really tired of these motherfucking jokes.
