I'm 100% Grade A dowdy bookworm spinster, verbivore, luftmensch, with revolution fantasies and an attention span problem. I don't drink Corona. I work from home. My family are mountainfolk, halfway between hippies and hillbillies. This can be amazing or horrifying or both at once, depending on the situation. I'm a communolibertian; my political views tend toward "what's being a good person" if you want to get vague about it.



"It was never like this for Mencken. He lived like a Prussian gambler--sweating worse than Bryant on some nights and drunker than Judas on others." -Dr. Thompson

"Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats." -Mencken.

"Sometimes I'm terrified of my heart; of its constant hunger for whatever it is it wants. The way it stops and starts." (Edgar A. Poe)

"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place." (Iain Thomas)

"Nothing goes with a pair of handcuffs like rhinestones and a sash." (Michael K)
