“I saw my earlier selves as different people, acquaintances I had outgrown. I wondered how I could ever have been some of them.”

Happy Gay Agenda month, friends. Plan the hell out of your gay shit.

Hey, I’m kinda bored. Let’s summon Art Bell with a Ouija board. Come on. You know it would work.

I’m gonna name my new plant “Aloe-stair Crowley”, I swear to god, don’t make me do this.

James Joyce would not have been a fan of auto-correct.

The more I think about it, the more I regret not having a destination wedding.

I would've sent everyone to Idaho, or some random place like that. And whenever anyone asked why, I would just look at them dead in the face and say "I don't know."

ONE MORE: Dickens would haunt your ass with the Ghost of Christmas Murder.

Thoreau would drown you in Walden Pond.

Emily Dickinson would find a way to keep you isolated for the rest of your life.

Hunter S. Thompson: WE STOPPED IN BAT COUNTRY!

I think I’m done.

Shakespeare would probably be kind enough to let you choose your own tragedy.

E.B. White: You’re never, ever stop crying.

What, too soon? Too much late-Romantic melodrama and tragedy?

Show thread

Ginsberg would obviously howl, shattering glass around him. Kerouac would just run you over with a car.

I wish that there was a version of Mortal Kombat, except with writers.

Mary Shelley’s finishing move is obvious. So is Poe’s. Philip K. Dick makes you spend the rest of your life questioning whether you exist or not. If you get taken down by James Joyce, you can only speak a confusing but beautiful language.

It's important for little girls to have positive female role models. That's why I have the confidence to walk into museums and just take stuff. Gobs and gobs of stuff. And nobody can catch me because they're too busy with those damn world almanacs.

Thank you, Carmen Sandiego, for making me the woman I am today.

Are you there, Bea Arthur? It's me, Fidget.

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
