Gawker’s fundraising campaign to buy the Ford video Drugs can be great fun, but Rob Ford is very terrible.
The Second Part: On Waiting →
waystocookanegg: These days when I get my period I crave a burger and fries. For the iron in the red meat and the salty carbs, maybe, but also for the immediacy of the meal and the ingrained comfort I associate, for better or for worse, with greasy fast food. This isn’t a… My friend Teri wrote this and it is a really wonderful essay. When people I know have babies or plan to have them...
My friend Ashlee made a Pinterest with all the things we remember growing up with in 1980s North America.
My horse and I currently have the same medical problem. Peas in a pod.
Another turtle. You can hear him eating.
Look at this turtle. My dad filmed it yesterday morning.
One thing that has interested me for a long time is why exactly girls are so attracted to horses. More so than boys. While so many top riders are men, you hardly ever see boys at riding schools, you don’t see boys drawing horses in their notebooks or putting horses on every wish list they ever have or dreaming about them every day and every night the way girls do.

The magical saddle fitter came to look at the Optimum, watched me ride, re-flocked, watched me ride, re-flocked, and then watched me ride and re-flocked yet again, and now it’s perfect and I learned that Valor has a perfectly straight spine and that he hates saddle fitting and THE NIGHTMARE IS OVER AND I CAN MOVE ON WITH MY LIFE AND I AM NEVER BUYING ANOTHER SADDLE EVER AGAIN.
Valor was attacked by his so-called friend and has a piece of skin missing from his neck.
