commented on A Cockroach in the Restaurant: WWSD?
I was once told that all restaurants have cockroaches, and decided that it's best not to think too much about such things. I may just have low expectations, but I would probably just avoid the place until I could properly block it out of my mind again.

The light gleaming off the buildings on Queen Anne hill, from Capitol Hill/ around the freeway overpass on Pine. Taking the train to Portland along the Sound when the sun is setting. Anytime the mountain is out. Anytime the sun is out. Nightime in a car in the city in the side and rearview mirrors. All of the ways light hits skin and the faces of people you love and/or find beautiful. The Lost Lake sign at night (an impossible to capture mix of cyan and green). I miss Volunteer Park reservoir on a sunny day, but still, the tall glass as seen from a laying down position with an afternoon slant. Conservatory plants there for fun textures. Moonlight on water. The color and light art of the downtown Seattle library (like candy!). And my very very favorite, light ripples underwater in an indoor pool. Get a pair of goggles and enter bliss. <3

commented on Lindy West: An Appreciation
Earlier today I was explaining Lindy to a friend who wasn't familiar with her/ her work and I said this:
"in general, she's kick ass, smart and hilarious-- you should look up some of her articles on jezebel, reading her makes you angry and happy and hopeful and laugh so hard you'll snort"
"she's in a different genre, but i enjoy her almost as much as/ possibly more than michelle tea...
can't express my love for her more"
Lindy West is one of my heroines.
