Dr Sherrie Lieberman is an outstanding cat name.
hst is of the view that some titles are dangerous to ascribe to cats. “Professor Peanutbutter,” for example, suggests the ruthless cunning of Moriarty. And “Archbishop Peanutbutter” might have delusions of grandeur.
I like “Deputy County Commissioner Peanutbutter” because it’s a position of modest authority.
"Sheriff Peanutbutter" would also be good—sheriffs in Canada do not have as much authority as in the US, being responsible primarily for county bailiff services and medical examiners. I feel that’s an appropriate level of authority for a cat.
how do we feel about “adjunct professor peanutbutter”?
straight self-proclaimed ally: look at those homosexuals holding hands like they were normal people. wow. so pretty. i’m inspired. cannot stop staring. this is just like that tv show about how homosexuals are really just like us. amazing. i’m gonna write a tumblr post about how these gays have no troubles in america land of the free
gay couple: jesus. is she still looking? she’s still looking. she keeps acting like she’s gonna say something. i hope she doesn’t say something. is she gonna follow us out of the restaurant? when we leave put your phone on record in case she does something so if she says anything it will at least be a provable hate crime. she’s still looking. fuck it, let’s not stop holding hands. in for a penny. do you have your mace on you?
octopus in a cicero manuscript u say!
from a copy of the paradoxica stoicorum, 14thC-ish?
is it not delightful
I’m not very like… connected with myself so idt it would have happened. idk. born this way was never helpful for me but sometimes I need to affirm that I am this way. like whatever caused it I am this way right now.
yeah, i never really felt like born this way was particularly useful for me? i mean, to the point that it was a struggle for me to assert that i’m gay ~innately or w/e while writing this stuff. but yes, agree, exactly same, regardless of causes i’m gay, and i can say that i’m gay and it’s not untrue
I mean sometimes they’re octopuses or cats or noses, which is also great
yes! the five-legged octopus one in that cicero manuscript is possibly my favorite illustration (“illustration”) in anything ever
I always think about how if my life had been different I would have always thought I was straight! idk if I’m being reasonable or not #brains
yeah i am quietly sure that with relatively minimal changes to my life i would not have decided i liked girls
which would have been… pretty upsetting, actually, given that every time a guy has asked me out, even when i thought i liked them, i got so scared i became actively nauseated
i don’t…think that idea makes sense? like, i doubt i became gay because i read a couple of tumblr posts or idk, something, ~fell in with the wrong crowd~
i’m not not saying it
what’s your favorite obscure typographical mark?
probably the manicule, which is ☞ this pointing hand thing, used for pointing out marginal notes and such
one of my favorite points about it is that the style of sleeve it emerges from differs with the era, so you can have flowing sleeves or lace cuffs or suchlike depending on the time when it was used
