The Latest

It strikes me that what the attack on the World Trade Center stole from us is our willingness to be complex. Or what the attack on the World Trade center revealed to us is that we were never complex. We might want to believe that we can condemn and we can love and we can condemn because we love our country, but that’s too complex.

Over lunch, someone says,

What’s all this about detaining hundreds of people and monitoring lawyer-client conversations? Who do we think we are? China?

Inside the space of the constructed joke, everyone laughs and laughs.

today at work i asked a customer if he wanted french vanilla creamer with his coffee and he said no because he wanted the “heterosexual” creamer instead and it just blows my mind that straight people say shit about how queer people “force our sexuality on them” because i have never met a single queer person who has done something like assign a sexuality to coffee creamer

BAMBU INDAH | BALI INDONESIA

Bambu Indah is a radically distinctive eco-luxury boutique hotel in Ubud, on the Indonesian island of Bali. At the unique escape you can stay at one of the magical antique Java homes comforted by the luxury and service of an intimate hotel. The resort offers upscale facilities in a gorgeous riverfront setting of rice paddies and scenic cascades, you can swim in a natural swimming pool so fresh you’ll share it with small fish, melt away with a Balinese massage, or indulge yourself with the best traditional cuisine available in Bali. The rustic, chic retreat has managed to retain the laid back atmosphere of simply going to stay with friends.

Today I put my hand in my backpack and felt a stress ball and I was like “oh? I have a stress ball?” and I squeezed it and it was a pear and it exploded and now I’m much more stressed than I was earlier :/
