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.
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.
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
Max V: How were your homodays?
this is what my phone autocorrected holidays to
and I’m keeping it dammit
Jeff: adventures with private parts and feelings!
the “i know we shouldn’t, but i know we will” bad idea fun thing train.
leaves time for absinthe and naps.
me: i don’t understand why everything isn’t easy all the time, someone should fix that
Chiara: ive been in my bed just like
me: also i don’t understand why sarah kane and johnny cash are dead because i would totally have dated them both
Chiara: procrastisleeping all day
