Don Draper didn’t know his father, so he examines figures of male authority that he dreads becoming. One is Roger Sterling. Unfortunately, Don’s current trajectory points to a Sterling finish. Right now, he’s an entitled lush who skips out on his family, cuts corners, sleeps with the secretaries and—worst of all—he settles for mediocre copy. One day you’re taking a drunken self-congratulatory lap around a conference room of potential clients, the next day you’re in a dusty corner office wistfully dictating your memoir to a bored secretary.
Sometimes I’m convinced this girl was created especially for me in a lab. She is perfect.
Let the Right One In
thepastandthepending asked: Hey there! Just wanted to say that it's so inspiring to follow your blog. That you so openly embrace who you are and not give a damn about the narrow-minded people of the world! That you post exactly the pictures you want, and write exactly what you want. You're a true tumblr'er :) And thank you for that.
Thank you so much for saying this! I think being open minded is one of the best traits a person can have.
I do make a point of not letting what is currently popular sway what I post. It’s tempting, obviously, to post the kinda stuff that I see is currently popular, but I remember that being myself and posting my interests has gotten me to where I am right now, so it’s better to be consistent and true to myself. Of course I’m lucky that I like some popular things, but at the same time, I’m always eager to turn the people who are following my tumblr on to new things they might not have heard of. What I hope they’re thinking is “she likes a lot of movies that I like, why don’t I watch this other movie she’s apparently totally in love with?” Same goes with the art or the art photography or even some of the more controversial people I post. If I can get people to give something a chance and maybe they end up liking something new, then I feel like I’ve accomplished something.
bohemea asked: I have several questions. Number one: how dare you.
Oh my God I have so much to tell you! Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, they had a baby and they named it Suri, and then Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, they had a baby, too, and they named it Shiloh. And both babies are amazing!
darkblanche asked: may I ask, just please, don't be one of the annoying tumblrs who fill half my stream with responses to 'omg i love you' comments.. Not sure if this is the case but those get excruciatingly annoying.
But if you do, at least make the questions/answers somewhat interesting?
I agree with this - I have seen great tumblrs fall into wankfests before, just as you’re describing. I will answer enough comments to remind everyone that I am worshiped by many, but not too many to make everyone believe I think I’m god’s gift to blogging/women/the world/etc. Fear not, though it will be a delicate line to walk, I will manage it.
ofobscureorigins asked: Yay, because I have been waiting awhile to tell you, your blog is made of 100% pure unleaded cuteness.
Aww, thank you so much! And might I say, without sounding too lecherous, what delightful boobies you have! ;)
I’ve debated turning on the ask feature on my tumblr for a long time, but have finally decided to do it. So you can message me from here from now on if you wanna!
