PSA: dressing in a blazer and heels means, by some process of Bougie Alchemy, you’re forced to make tea and eggs and toast and read the New Yorker during breakfast.

dictionaryofobscuresorrows:

n. the moment of realization that your quintessential self isn’t going to show up, which forces the role to fall upon the understudy, the gawky kid for whom nothing is easy, who spent years mouthing their lines in the wings before being shoved into the glare of your life, which is already well into its second act.

We’re funny, okay?

THIS IS EXCELLENT except I have to disagree with one point: Jane Austen wouldn’t be hella annoying on social media - she’d just be trolling all the time.

Hemingway would also have some major MRA backers probably. He wouldn’t be one (he’d just be a regular misogynistic bastard) but his followers would be harassing anyone who called it out.

Faulkner has no use for twitter and his blog posts are interminable.

Robert Frost’s Instagram tho.

And Poe and Lovecraft trying to outdo each other with Two-Sentence Horror Stories.

And Elizabeth Bishop, Emily Dickinson, and Sylvia Plath deliberately trolling MRAs.

And Polidori would tag “@DevilEnglishman” in every. Single. Post, trying to start a twitter war in the hopes of gaining followers.

BYRON’S HANDLE WOULD BE @DevilEnglishman

"I asked him about differences in the nature of friendships with men and with women. “Women are more intense about it,” he replied, “because they’re always dealing with other women, and that’s so dicey. There’s always going to be trouble there. Can you imagine the trouble between Eleanor Roosevelt and Amelia Earhart?” Noting my inquiring expression, he said, “Well, Eleanor was in love with Amelia, and Amelia was in love with my father.” He added, “My father kept taking Amelia and me to college football games, which bored us beyond words. She and I would read, write, and exchange poetry throughout every game. I had hoped that my father would marry her so that she would become my stepmother. But when I asked him why they hadn’t married, he said, ‘She was like a boy. I never wanted to marry another boy.’ ”

Gore’s father Eugene Vidal was an athlete and aviation pioneer.
