s-uicidetrees asked: I LOVE Kurt Vonnegut. More than is probably healthy :D The man is my hero. And your background is great- my favorite Vonnegut sketch from my favorite Vonnegut novel!
Hon, I’ve convinced myself for my own sanity that there is no unhealthy level of love for Kurt. Because if there is, I’m in trouble :) Glad you like the background! Breakfast of Champions was my first KV novel and remains one of my absolute favourites.
Spring Break 2012, Part Three:
We’re all sitting around the table and communicating via Facebook despite the fact that we’re within a metre of each other. There is a lot of country music and a lot of tea. #winning
YOU GUYS. My roommate just got Tumblr.
You guys. You guys. #I can’t even #What is air #All my feels
You guys are AMAZING. Seriously. I’m incredibly flattered and humbled by how much you guys like this blog, especially since I was nervous about including more personal things about my life. So I’m really really glad that I’ve gotten a positive response from you all.
As excited as my face is up there, the situation clearly calls for Smiling!Kurt.
I’m so excited. It’s called 2 Breads and Everything in Between, which comes from our apartment’s inability to simultaneously make toast and understand numbers. Her blog doesn’t have much yet, but she’s crazy awesome and I love her so GO. Look at the cute puppy on her Tumblr.
Yo dawg, I heard you like Kurt Vonnegut, so I put some Kurt on your dash so you can Kurt while you Kurt.
(But actually, this is my dashboard right now. This is why I love Tumblr.)
My blog’s blacked out as part of the Tumblr/Internet strike against SOPA and PIPA, and even though you can still see posts on your dashboards from blogs that are participating in the strike, I won’t be posting anything today. I do, however, have several reblogs that’ll come up in my queue tomorrow. I just wanted to post this one thing as a sort of PSA about the whole thing.
And in case you didn’t see it last night and you’re wondering why I care about this:
“All these people talk so eloquently about getting back to good old-fashioned values. Well, as an old poop I can remember back to when we had those old-fashioned values, and I say let’s get back to the good old-fashioned First Amendment of the good old-fashioned Constitution of the United States — and to hell with the censors! Give me knowledge or give me death!” - Kurt Vonnegut
See you all tomorrow!
I’m breaking the fourth wall and talking about Tumblr…
…Because I managed to make my theme Kurt Vonnegut! The whole background is assholes (I hope you all know what I mean by that; if not, I’m about to lose some confused followers) and I fully admit that I abused the “Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt” quote. I’m excited.
What I’m also really excited about is that I added three pages to my Tumblr, so that you guys can have easy access to certain things on the blog. There are now quick links to all of my Kurt Vonnegut quotes, photos, and Fashion Fridays posts! I’m also pretty consistent about tagging all my posts so that they can be found easily; if you’re ever looking for posts related to a specific book or topic, you can check my tags.
Anyway, hope you guys get a kick out of the new layout. Ch-ch-check it out if you have the time and let me know what you think. As always, love you all!
My mother is making me explain Tumblr to her.
But we got a carafe of sangria at dinner and she made me drink most of it, so I’m really not in a position to explain anything. And she wants to know about my blog and how an “exclusively Kurt Vonnegut Tumblr” works.
“Why Fashion Fridays?”
“So do other people read Kurt Vonnegut as much as you?”
It’s like Twitter but better, alliteration, and YES.
