  1. sometimes when I can’t sleep and it’s 2 am I like to youtube her and watch clips from her show. even though like 90% of her content is not even a little bit relevant to me, because I live very, very far away. it’s a bit like facebook stalking someone you’ve met once or twice and you think they’re amazing and so clever and then you realise that actually you have no mutual friends and nothing in common but you just. can’t. stop being a creeper.

    Only less creepy because, obviously, I’m not actually stalking her. Sheesh.
