general inspiration


"Why will you take by force what you may have quietly by love?" -Chief Powhatan


"Going to spring break at Ft. Lauderdale, getting drunk and flashing your breasts isn't an act of personal empowerment. It's you, so fashioned and programmed by the construct of a patriarchal society that you no longer know what's best for yourself. A damsel too dumb to know she is even in distress." -Chuck Palahniuk


"I cannot agree with those who rank modesty among their virtues. To the logician, all things should be seen exactly as they are, and to underestimate one’s self is as much a departure from truth as to exaggerate one’s own powers." -Sherlock Holmes

"Sometimes we get so caught up in language, and this word and that word, that we lose sight of the bigger problems in the world. At one time, the word 'Bitch' simply meant female dog. Now, it has a negative meaning. Many negative words in one time and/or culture are meaningless in another. We’ve got to stop wasting time fighting over nonsense. I’m still waiting for aliens to come... " -George Clinton

So I had to do a project for AP history on George Clinton, the Governor of New York in 1780s. And I typed in "George Clinton" into Google, and the OTHER George Clinton came up, and I actually thought of you. This was not weird in my mind but now sounds weird. I just thought I'd share.

I love the picture of Alexa and Alex. Oh man, I just noticed that. Alexa and Alex. How cute.

A. said...

Wait. That's not Alexa. This just proves even further how lame I am.
