Anonymous: Happy threes! List three fave quotes, three current fave songs and three good things of any type. Send this to three (or more!) people.

HI ANON! I DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU ARE FROM and why you are on Anon for this but thank you for the question/s!

THREE QUOTES: (not exactly my faves but kind of what are ON MY MIND right now)

  1. "You grab at any sign of hope. You grab it with both hands and breathe life into it, day after day. You do anything to keep it alive." - Melina Marchetta, Finnikin of the Rock (I’ve been re-reading this FABULOUS series The Lumatere Chronicles and if you are a long-time reader of this blog you will realise it is my ULTIMATE FAV)
  2. "I don’t want to be married just to be married. I can’t think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can’t talk to, or worse, someone I can’t be silent with.” - Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
  3. "Now all I can think of is where she is and how much I love her. And I start to cry again." - Elizabeth Wein, Code Name Verity (this was cruel I apologise but I saw this book on my bookshelf today when cleaning and got REALLY REALLY SAD and happy BUT MOSTLY SAD)

THREE CURRENT FAV SONGS:

  1. I Wanna Get Better - Bleachers (IT’S SO CATCHY)
  2. All Comes Down - Kodaline (I love songs that build up)
  3. Ready To Love (Feat. Trent Dabbs) - Ingrid Michaelson (THIS WHOLE ALBUM IS GORGEOUS and this song is especially lovely and winter-like)

THREE GOOD THINGS aka Things that I’m looking forward to:

  1. A Christmas in July/Ugly Sweater GATHERING tomorrow night
  2. Seeing my university friends at orientation on Friday morning
  3. SUPER RAD PHARMACY BALL IN LATE AUGUST

We have tendency to define ourselves in opposition to stuff. But try to also express your passion for things you love. Be demonstrative and generous in your praise of those you admire. Send thank-you cards and give standing ovations. Be pro-stuff, not just anti-stuff. —Tim Minchin (x)

OK BUT CAN WE GET SOME CLOSURE W/ THE WHOLE ISAAC IN FRANCE THING I FEEL LIKE CHRIS JUST LEFT HIM IN A CAFE IN PARIS WITH A BAGUETTE IN HIS HAND

Then Akbar did something that really frightened Danny. He pointed at both of his eyes with two fingers and then pointed at Danny with the same two fingers.

"That means he’s watching you," Jackson explained.

Things in Danny’s life were getting more and more frightening every day.

"By far, one of the best scenes in the book is where Kaling writes about the photo shoot she and Office co-star Ellie Kemper did for People’s Most Beautiful issue. When the stylist brought a trailer full of size zero gowns, Kaling found herself crying in the children’s bathroom of the public school where the photo shoot was happening. In the bathroom stall, she discovered a smear of what looked like excrement and a child’s graffiti: “This school is bulls–t!” which made her a) laugh and b) demand that the stylist alter one of the gowns to fit her. In the end photo, she’s smiling in a gorgeous fuchsia dress that the stylist had to rip down the back and alter with canvas. Looking at beautiful Kaling, though, you’d never know. It’s a sweet moment of chubby girl victory.” (via afterellen)

This is the story that truly made her my hero.

"What if I’m scared of everything for the rest of my life?" Danny asked.

"My Dad says that the things that scare us now won’t scare us when we’re older," Jackson explained. "There’ll be other things."

More things? Danny couldn’t bear the idea of more things to scare him.

Danny recognised the voice. It came from Simmo, who scared most kids in fourth grade. Simmo was the best full-back in the league team. Simmo wore army pants on casual cothes days and wore his hair cropped short so when he squinted at you, he looked really mean. He was also rumoured to have kissed Gracie McLean, an older woman in grade six. —Melina Marchetta, The Gorgon in the Gully

Anonymous: Dear Man, How do you think it best for children to be raised? Should a Father be involved in the upbringing of children? —A Not-So-Old Woman Who Lives In A Shoe

ask-a-man:

Dear Not-So-Old,

What an odd question. If fathers are not involved in the raising of their children, who would teach young boys to simultaneously patronize women while taking credit for all their best ideas? Who would teach men to sit on the autobus in a manner that took up twice as much room as necessary?

Think of the patriotic implications if our young boys were not taught to behave in such a manner. After all, what is the British empire but an extension of the privilege of being a man writ over the world at large?

No, Not-So-Old Woman, Fathers must absolutely be involved in the upbringing of their children.

Yours Truly,
Stephen Shaughnessy
