Five Celebrities: Philip Seymour Hoffman

Five.

1.

“You’ll absolutely die when you hear what happened today at the café,” my then-girlfriend said, poking her head around the kitchen door to watch me struggle to cut the ribs off the entire bunch of dinosaur kale with a dull knife.

“Mmmhh?,” I responded.

“Well, we were listening to that Judy Garland album you put on the store iPod,” she said, stepping into view in the door frame. Her jeans were dusted dark brown where she wiped her hands after each shot of espresso, and she smelled like work in that way I loved: salt and coffee and warm milk. “Philip Seymour Hoffman came in, ordered a couple iced lattes for him and Mimi, and was standing by the bar waiting for me to finish making them.” She came up beside me and gently took the knife from my hands, easily dispensing with the ribs and cutting the kale…

Let’s All Sell Out

Something I’ve been thinking about for a loooooooong time.
Good job!

Seven Years Late

Sellout

I hate money.

The reality is, I hate not having money. Or, even more accurate, I hate needing money and not having it. I’ve never been as depressed in my life as when I’ve found myself with more bills than cash. Because that’s what it means to be poor: Knowing you can never afford to do all the things you want to do.

Which is why it bothers me so much when I hear people say that their favorite musician, artist, filmmaker—whatever—has “sold out.” To some people, a sellout is someone who abandons their roots in favor of a fat paycheck. But what it should really mean is, “Oh, good, that person I enjoy will be able to continue to live.”

1. The awkwardness that is cancelling your way out of any and all plans you make/are forced into. Crafting that many excuses isn’t easy and is an artform that deserves proper recognition.

2. Justifying this: “What are you doing?” “Nothing… I’m just sitting at home… but like, because I want to.”

3. You’re not anti-social, you are just selectively-social. You don’t waste your time with people who don’t matter, you don’t keep up fake friendships. Sometimes this looks as though you’re distant, but you actually have a psychological leg up on the people who are still trying to work out relationships that just aren’t meant for them.

4. Dealing with the stigma that someone who spends time at home is boring and needs to “get a life.” Wherever you live your life the happiest is the place you should do it. The only people who think otherwise are the people who can’t be…

Top 10 Books (I read in) 2013

So I had this ( I thought at the time) awesome idea, which was to share with you the top 10
best books -according to me- in 2013.

Where did that get me? Breathing in a paper bag to stop the panic, that’s where!
How did I get here? How did I not think about the consequenses of that decision?
Why did I not realise this would be really really hard? It’s like trying to rate your kids from cutest to ugliest I tell you! Impossible!
I tried many times and finally came to a conclusion. I’m not even going to pretend that I’m in a good state of mind to rate books right now,but here you go :
1. Clipped wings by Helena Hunterhunting                                                             Image
2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell                                                                                  Image

* I realise Clipped Wings is supposed to be released in 2014 but I was given an ARC by the the author, and I did read it in 2013 so…. 🙂

So that’s it! I’m not gonna torture you with my rambling. This might as well be the 10 books I loved in 2013 in no particular order ( I kept changing my mind)
