meredithbklyn: I don’t want to post the details of this story on my tumblr because they’re entirely disturbing and heinous, but I think you should read this story. Oh my goodness.
elizabethanne replied to your post: On Vices I have this problem too. We should start a club and get jackets. You had me at matching wardrobe.
Tumblr is my safe space, so I feel okay admitting something to y’all: I have a texting problem. The moment wine touches my lips, something in the back of my mind clicks, I break out my phone and start texting (I also hug people a lot, but that’s a story for another time). Sometimes those texts are epic moments of clarity. But most times they are just epic dribbles of nonsense (nothing...

After Four Months of Employment...
My boss started a quote board. Specifically a “Joy Quote Board,” and he is filling it with the random things I tend to say. So far we have: I don’t understand, is the tomato a metaphor? I just feel like horses are really historical. I’m going to plop some alka-seltzer because I’m actually 95-years-old. This is not a positive development.

meredithbklyn: ““How many times have people taunted me because of a color that I had on or how tight my pants were? It’s nothing. I’m at the point now where I can go to ABC Carpet and spend five hours picking out sheets, ‘cause I love colors, like teal and taupe and salmon … When I visited Wayne at Rikers Island, I had a suit on with some slippers, and the guard said, ‘Man, those shoes are...

Pumpkin Ice Cream →
vrai-lean-uh: The other day, Joy mentioned talk of a pumpkin-themed party. I have a great fondness for themed things, so we were chatting about the dishes one would serve* and I decided that you’d have to have pumpkin ice cream for dessert.** Then, ta da! David Lebovitz has a pumpkin ice cream recipe that includes a bit of alcohol at the end to make things smoother. I love David Lebovitz...

Lisa: So you don’t like this guy? Joy: It’s just that he’s so good looking, I physically could not make eye contact with him. Lisa: Um, dating good looking guys is a positive thing.
fullcredit replied to your photo: Taylor tested, Joy approved. (via) A little too close to the Seinfeld puffy shirt if you ask me. I have never seen Seinfeld? So this reference is lost on me.
