Oh, Rose, you’re such a tease!

“Women are bitches,” says a young man as he sits down. Apparently a woman at the bar wouldn’t give him her number. He’s talking to the man sitting on his left in spite of the fact that I am sitting two feet to his right and at the same table.
I’ve spent the last couple months in the company of writers, mostly poets, mostly men. I am growing weary. The group I hang with is large and fluid—I’m not naming names, not pointing fingers, I like these people—and yet an issue I cannot ignore has begun to emerge: when it comes to many of the men in the company, mid-thirties and younger, making conversation, even with women present (older, younger, students, professionals, I’m a grandmother for Christ’s sake), the topics frequently revolve around who is sleeping with whom, which female is more fuckable, which poop or dog-cum reference is the funniest, and what is the latest text from “the Korean girlfriend.”

as far as i can tell from my dash there’s some sort of gay musical olympics going on that only europe was invited to
That would about sum it up, yeah. :)
queenmonkeygirl asked: How is your birthday going so far? Did Peter surprise you with anything awesome? Love and many birthday wishes from CO!!
We don’t do big present-y things at birthdays. Because work can so often interfere with the dates, we tend to nominate Official Birthdays (the way the Queen does), often connected to predetermined holiday periods. Then we sneak up on one another and Give Each Other Stuff.
Anyway, thanks for the nice thought! So far The Day That’s In It has been fun. :)
Wait, is Westeros in Europe?
