  1. I know the odds are slim, but all I want in life is for Hillary Cli*ton to be the real Hillary Clinton trolling us all.

  2. I just got a text from a girl, whom I usually affectuously call “Rihanna”, who’s apparently got super mixed feelings over the fact that I’ve affectuously called another girl “Rihanna” in another recent text. An these are my het friends. Now imagine what a horrible mess my homo affective and social life looks like.

    I really appreciate this award. I may suck at love and friendship, but my mom will be so, so happy! :D

    (And this, my friends, is exactly everything that’s wrong with me in a fancy nutshell.)
