atlantic article on trends in sex Show more
we joke about this a lot but the straights are definitely not okay y’all https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2018/12/the-sex-recession/573949/
Open Question: What's the weirdest way you've found a song that you now rank among your favorites?
I'll start: My pastor was trying to play some Enya during one of the later portions of Mass, but his hand slipped and he instead played Sinnerman by Nina Simone (Felix da Housecat Remix). He swore on mike while he fiddled with the speaker system, but I never vibed so hard to a track born from a complete and utter accident!
minor blood ment, not neg at all Show more
trying to explain the perpetual high-desert-induced bloody nose to people is hard
"yeah my nose is probably always bleeding at home ... no I don't mean like gushing... I actually almost never need a tissue .... yeah it's just that like.... if I sneeze or something I realize my nose is filled with scabs... it's actually totally normal, welcome to the high desert... no it's NOT A PROBLEM WHAT"
New experiences being here today:
*asking a new dynamics student what they set R0 to to hear "what's R0?" (WHO IS TEACHING THESE KIDS THEY NEED ME GOD FUCKING DAMMIT)
*guy who controls multiple millions of dollars going out of his way to talk to me for 10 minutes (FUCK YOU PAY ME (he's a sweetheart and I love him BUT PAY ME I mean))
420, alch, allergies Show more
me: "I confirmed I'm super allergic to beer"
ex-boss: "but not gluten?"
me: "yeah, not gluten"
ex-boss: "maybe it's the hops - can you smoke weed?"

I think it's important to point out that any bitterness I feel these days is actually pretty residual/some of it's just coming out now that I'm in a better place
I'm dating (well, I've been on a few dates with other people and plan to go on more)
I'm in a sexually satisfying exchange thing
I have some additional flirtations
things are getting better and will continue to do so for at least a little while
breakups (not mine), this town Show more
talked to an old friend
he had a breakup recently
talking about trying to get back out there
"oh yeah at 41 I'm not just an old man I'm a dirty old man - it's not just that the girls I see out are kids, but that they're young enough to be MY kids"
this town gets corrosive that way
glad I left
personal, poverty, pet ownership, sui ref Show more
there were times since I got Kris where my heat got turned off in the winter because bills are hard when rent and your paycheck are within $200 of each other
yes, Kris was cold, but it felt better to be curled up under a blanket WITH SOMEONE than it did to be alone
if he hadn't been there I might've died
pets, extreme classism Show more
everyone deserves a pet, if they'll love it and try to do what's right by it
you can't look at the number of animal shelters killing dogs and cats by the dozen and say "houseless people don't deserve pets" or "if you can't eat regularly you can't have a pet"
let them have love I will light you on fire
personal shitpost Show more
the only men I've found sexually appealing online recently are bisexual
this is probably not a coincidence
bitterness about male exes, monogamy shitposting Show more
every man I've ever been in a relationship with has wanted ME to be mono because anything else would be too big a blow to their ego
and they've (okay, only one of them, and I broke up with him 8 years ago) wanted blanket permission to cheat because their ego "needs" to sleep with hot girls
anyway, male ego is bad and is toxic in relationships, thx
(also relationships shouldn't be about ego thx x2)
