the Life of Lo

There are some days where it doesn’t seem like there are enough double chocolate ice cream bars and American Dad episodes to calm my dark places.

Thank goodness for my friends and family.

And Alice Wunder, who always likes my posts.


the Life of Lo

Every time I try to be super serious and calm because I’m insanely angry and I need to get my point across in an articulate manner, I  end up sobbing instead.

How the fuck does Clint Eastwood make it look so easy!?!


the Life of Lo

I gifted my dad a bunch of condoms I got at Pride today because I knew I wouldn’t be using them anytime soon. He looked at me straight faced and said, “I’m too old to get pregnant.”

Apparently there are dad jokes appropriate for every possible interaction.

Are You Not Entertained?

Shit My Friends Say

In the midst of game night, Kate passionately recited Maximus’s big reveal speech from Gladiator, word-for-word. I’ve never been more proud of someone than I was of her in that moment.

“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the TRUE emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”
