It has been declared.
I used to work with a women who first directed me to this story and who would occasionally decide, “It’s negroni season!”
If I were to sum up my life right now in one sentence I think it would be: “Where the fuck is my fucking wine key?!”

"In the Facebook age—this is the New Niceness, of hearts and rebloggings and repinnings—there’s a pressure to like everything and also to avoid a public expression of dissatisfaction with one’s life."

"…an in-your-face owning of one’s vulnerability and fucked-upness to the point of embarrassing and offending tight-asses is a powerful feminist strategy. writing is tough work, i don’t really see how anyone could write from a position of weakness. sometimes i may start out in that position, but the act of commandeering words flips me into a position of power. to deny behaviors and experiences gendered as weak or “feminine” is not queer or feminist, it’s heteronormative to the hilt. like kathy acker, i long to quiver and terrify in the same gasp."

dodie bellamy, in the buddhist. a year and a half ago, when mike and i broke up, emily gave me i love dick. this breakup season, she gave me the buddhist. i cannot put this book down for obvious reasons. (via karaj)
Oddly enough, I’ve been wanting to write about my last Emily Books purchase, Glory Goes and Gets Some, which was perfect for my most recent (current?) break up season.
Now I’ve got the buddhist to help me ride out the rest of this season.
