As soon as May 1 hits, Youngbloods start having conversations like these.
me: what are you doing for bloodworks
chiara: my sex play
me: yessss hot
chiara: what are you doing?
me: i dont know yet
in the world
pursuit of happiness
it’s all a question mark
i LOVE the eagle cam
it’s just so
it gives a sense of order to my life
in a way
it’s almost midnight in new york
it’s night time
in Decorah, Iowa, the eagle is sleeping in its nest.
like. As it fucking should be.
In case you need eagles in your life.
Basil: why am I watching an eagle sleep?
me: because it is ADORABLE
because it is an EAGLE CAM
and they are ALIVE
and you are WITNESSING THEM LIVE
me: and they are less annoying than any of the humans you have dealt with or will continue to deal with
Basil: true very true
me: oh my god look at its little face
i need to stop watching this, it’s weirdly addictive
Basil: yeah when’s it gonna move
or eat something or clean itself
me: whenever it FUCKING FEELS LIKE IT
me: but you know what anne sexton said
J: I really don’t
me: “beauty is a simple passion / but oh my friends / in the end you will dance the fire dance in iron shoes”
J: Sometimes, in single blinding moments, I feel like I know everything about you
A: the thing i love about you
is that you have no sense of self-preservation
i find it endearing
but useful, very useful
Aunt Jeff: conversations with prospective/ recurring exes
are like being in a jacuzzi
filled with jello, pepperoni, and a horse —
nothing makes any fucking sense
and it doesn’t feel good afterwards
and you don’t feel like you can tell anyone.
me: but then i still think
maybe i’ll just move to iceland
are there yaks
Chiara: none of those things, I believe
possibly some elk? but i’m not sure
me: i can herd elk
they do most of the work themselves
Chiara: i follow this great shepherd on twitter
Max V: I would move heaven and earth for you.
I would do anything for love, but I won’t do that.
One of these is true.
B: there’s two kinds of voles
prairie and something else
One kind has really nice guy male voles, who take care of the kids and love their mates
Just all around good guys
The other kind of vole, well he is a real loner type
goes through female voles like they’re going extinct.
Turns out, mr nice guy vole of the two types
prairie and something else and I can’t remember which
is the nice one
but the nice one makes more oxytocin
and has more oxytocin receptors than the mean one.
me: i would take any class on natural history that you ever taught
B: I just learned about voles.
I also learned where to stimulate the vagus nerve and release oxytocin.
Makes you relax & be generous
me: somebody in a Bones episode dies bc their vagus nerve gets hit
B: This is about lightly stroking, not punching
me: it’s easy to get those things confused
Voles are never confused.
