Agh ticks are so creepy.
ARGH to the “you’re just fishing for compliments so I won’t compliment you” thing. You know why you go fishing? Because you’re hungry. For fish. Do the fish give the Morpheus-eye and say, “You are hungry for me, and therefore don’t deserve me”? They do not. Of course, if the only thing you ever do is fish, and you just leave the fish in a great big useless rotting heap beside you, okay, yeah, you’ve got a problem. But that’s a different deal. — comment by CheckeredFoxglove on #215: How do I help my friend realize she is lovely? | CaptainAwkward.com
So I went with a group of friends to see “This is the End” because hey—funny apocalypse movie with lots of interesting actors and good ratings!

Why I Don’t Diet – An Ode to My Father | More Cabaret -
This made me cry.
My father spent his years fighting his size, wishing he was smaller, weaker, less of a giant. He was taught to hate his body, and he was ashamed of the amount of space he took up. But he passed his strength to me, and I won’t squander my inheritance. I will not let myself be diminished.
I am my father’s daughter. I too am a giant, built of strength and flesh. And I am strong enough to carry myself and others, even when they can’t carry themselves.
