  17. I just love that she’ll actually sleep on her bed. Both of mine look at pet beds with haughty disdain, and snore on the floor. Now that they’re old men, that’s pretty much all they do, other than morphing into CUJODEATHDOG when the lawn care dudes are in the yard.

  61. hi. any dog named dorothy barker is totally a french girl of mine. my writing recently has your influence written all over it, but not enough where i’m freaking out, unsure that i’m plagiarizing my idols, which is NOT so punk rock.
    ps. you make me want to go to texas. <3xo, peach s.

    “as basically copied word for word from an actual text.
    despite my oft sensible choices in life i still have a fucking headache [that’s clearly going to try to kill me any minute now, and i did the thing i do where i dismissed my auras as ‘just me being stupid’ as fucking usual], and i’m pretty sure this migraine thing is something i will eventually give the same buddhistic regard [to] as i do with the rest of my [oft ignored] logic, [like you’re supposed to] with [all] parts of life you [feel like are all about] learn[ing] to deal with- but NOT THIS ONE QUITE YET. [because i have to develop patience, which will happen after i deal with this god-fugly perfectionist problem that i inherited from my grandmother and her mother whose visage i bear an eerily uncanny resemblance to, and she also suffered from the grammatically fucked up condition called “chronic migraine”, as if it just is always there but sometimes dormant, waiting to strike whenever, and i really feel the perfectionist thing has everything to do with being the source of my chronic migraine i has thing. [i mean, come on, i cut a fucking sentence on my thigh and i hate it because the “handwriting” is not only un-stunning, but it’s completely sloppy, like serial killer handwriting. I WAS BLEEDING, HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW. I KEEP WISHING IT WAS OKAY TO CUT SO I COULD JUST FIX IT. i’m really glad i didn’t stab myself with india ink this time, because that would be more apparent and way more annoying to explain to whoever sees my thigh and actually asks why i have “THE EYE WOULD PREFER TO LOOK AWAY” tattooed to my poor unfortunate skin. over a scar, they’d probably assume i was an angsty teenager with a penchant for linguistics.]

    i don’t hope your phone explodes diarrhea or anything, but my texts are long, languid and devastatingly articulate by default, and could never pass as tweets. and this one is off the radar due to surviving my newest claim to fame: holding the guinness book of world records award for “LONGEST PSYCH-RELATED INTAKE EVER….furthermore, i didn’t even cry, because that’s exactly all my anti-depressant seems to do- SUPPRESS TEARS…..and furthermore, the guy giving the intake was like my age and exactly fucking like me.

    by the way, my brother is exploding the diarrhea for you right now, complete with post-diarrhea moan. now a sigh. lol. be glad it isn’t you.]

    (okay two actual texts)
