Sometimes I wonder what it’d be like to turn to a life of crime. Probably the same.

I laughed and laughed.

Do not fall in love
With people like me.
people like me
will love you so hard
that you turn into stone
into a statue where people
come to marvel at how long
it must have taken to carve
that faraway look into your eyes

Do not fall in love with people like me
we will take you to
museums and parks
and monuments
and kiss you in every beautiful
place so that you can
never go back to them
without tasting us
like blood in your mouth

Do not come any closer.
people like me
are bombs
when our time is up
we will splatter loss
all over your walls
in angry colors
that make you wish
your doorway never
learned our name

do not fall in love
with people like me.
with the lonely ones
we will forget our own names
if it means learning yours
we will make you think
hurricanes are gentle
that pain is a gift
you will get lost
in the desperation
in the longing for something
that is always reaching
but never able to hold

do not fall in love
with people like me.
we will destroy your
apartment
we will throw apologies at you
that shatter on the floor
and cut your feet

we will never learn
how to be soft

we will leave.
we always do.

Jessica Williams talks to John Tamny, columnist for Forbes

John Tamny, professional asshole

Daily wish to the universe that this woman be given her own show like she deserves to have.

Jessica Williams is basically the best, right?

Yeah sure let me just track sand over my entire house I mean are you serious can you imagine the mess what a catastrophically bad idea

shut up.

Not until whoever invented this is in jail

why the fuck bother having a rolling chair

This is the worst

[twitches horribly] oh god, oh god make the nightmare stop

LOOK I MEAN THIS IS JUST CLEARLY A GOOD IDEA TAKEN WAY TOO FAR WHY IS THE DEKS INVOLVED WHY IS IS THE MOTHERFUCKING ***COMPUTER TOWER IN THE SAND*** IT DOESN”T NEED THAT IT TIDNT” ASK FOR THIS

1) make a little tray like, I dunno, THE SIZE OF YOUR FEET, YOUR FEET DON’T NEED THAT MUCH ROOM this is how we end up with Johnny Huge Ballz taking up 3 seats on the subway, reign it in buddy

2) Next to the little sand foot rest, put a little tray of water. Get one of those plastic boot trays, that should be plenty. AGAIN: RESIST OVERKILL FOR FUCK’S SAKE

3) Put a lil towel down next to THAT

So your game goes

- Squirm your toesies in the sand while your work, I dont blame you

- Lift your sandy feets out of the tray, tap them lightly, then set them in the tray of water, give em a swish

- Lift your clean wet feet, tamp them on the towel, ta-da, clean sand-free feet

Obviously this doesn’t work if you have free-roaming pets or children. Also, I personally would be more into just a little moss bed, which would make way less mess, but eh, whatever.

MY POINT IS YOU CAN LIVE SOME VARIATION OF THIS DREAM AND KEEP YOUR MICHEL GONDRY-ESQUE “WHIMSY” WHILE PARTICIPATING IN A SOCIETY THAT IS SYSTEMICALLY DESTROYING YOUR LIFE AND THE LIVES OF ALMOST EVERY OTHER LIVING CREATURE ON THIS PLANET WITHOUT GETTING SAND ALL OVER YOUR STUFF.

Also I don’t like that t-shirt at ALL.

This man is sitting in a giant litter tray, isn’t he? Give it five minutes, and he’s going to have to be using the little rake-y thing to fish poops out his box. Maybe his own? Maybe that’s the idea?

Hey, Santa and Jesus have the same middle initial! And they both like riding bikes! (From “Give Her Liberty—And Give Her Death!” by Martin Pasko and Kurt Schaffenberger, in 1975’s Wonder Woman #218, reprinted in 2012’s Wonder Woman: The Twelve Labors)

He’s got a sleigh. Why would he even need a bike? Heeeey… is that the bike I was supposed to get for Christmas when I was seven? Did Santa steal my bike?
