As much as the framing of that show is supposed to be about empowerment, it's an empoewrment that you can only find by posing nude with strategically placed diamonds over your nipples.

I'm using Livejournal the next couple of weeks to write down quotes out of new books I'm reading. I normally copy them all into a notebook, but the notebook is in Idaho. Here we go!

It was always nighttime in my twenties, or at least that's how I remember it. It was always dark, the lights low, and I never liked my clothes as much as I wanted to, I just couldn't get it right, and I was always alone and wanting to be with some girl who didn't want me. Except when I was with a girl and wanting to be alone again, wandering the streets with the only person who truly understood me, myself.

How does one fill up a queen sized bed on their own? Do they just stick to one side like I do?

I really love sitting in a half lit room with a candle and cup of tea listening to music and reading the lyrics and singing, even if I don't know the song. Anyone else?

I have a place to live after my lease is up. I will be living in a house on 13th street, in the middle of Hyde Park, with three queer women, one whom I work with, one whom I've met once, and one I've yet to meet. I think it will be lovely. Although I will definitely miss being by myself. Once I figured out that being alone is okay (all it took was a visit to my parents' house to remember how much I love my solitude), I started to love it again. Sigh. I have a tiny bedroom and my computer won't fit in there, which means if I'm going to do this (sit here and listen to music and revel in it), I'll have to do it in the living room. I'll survive. My rent will be $250 a month, and I seriously need to save the money.
