He intrigues me so
Home, April 2013
I think I die every winter and regrow in the spring. That’s the only thing that makes sense.
A few people mentioned this video in my inbox. I shared it on my facebook a few weeks ago, because I thought it was really powerful, and it’s definitely worth sharing. Hear Katie Makkai’s beef with “pretty”.
So this video started going around my facebook today, with about a dozen of my female friends sharing the link with comments like, and “Everyone needs to see this”, and “All girls should watch this,” and “This made me cry.” And I’m not trying to shame those girls! I definitely understand why they would do so. And I don’t want to be a killjoy. But as I clicked the link and started watching the video, I started to feel a slight sense of discomfort. I couldn’t put my finger on why that was, exactly, but it continued throughout the whole thing. After watching the video several more times, I have some thoughts…
This is actually one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen.

I planted over 100 tomato plants today and I am now having a kale chip party.
