I love my Parks and Rec family
A great deal of tv shows. A copious amount of food. A drop of art. A healthy bit of sports. A bunch of random stuff. And pretty much everything in between. Be prepared.

C’est long d’être un homme. C’est long de renoncer à tout.

C’est que, demain, il faudra vivre encore.

What aspects of religion should atheists adopt? Alain de Botton suggests a “religion for atheists” that incorporates religious forms and traditions to satisfy our human need for connection, ritual and transcendence.
Josie reads James
The read was real.
It’s not about experience, James. It’s about gender. Reston’s saying I don’t have the balls to be president and he means that literally. It’s offensive. It’s offensive to me, and to all the women whose votes he’s asking for … and it’s not just governor Reston speaking in code about gender, it’s everyone, yourself included. The only reason we’re doing this interview in my house is because you requested it. This was your idea and yet here you are thanking me for inviting you into my “lovely home”. That’s what you say to the neighbor lady who baked you chocolate chip cookies. This pitcher of iced tea isn’t even mine, it’s what your producer set here. Why? Same reason you called me a “Real Life Cinderella Story” - it reminds people that I’m a woman without using the word. For you it’s an angle, I get that, and I’m sure you think it’s inoccuous but guess what? Its not. You’re promoting stereotypes, James. You’re advancing this idea that women are weaker than men. You’re playing right into the hands of Reston and into the hands of every other imbecile who thinks that a woman isn’t fit to be Commander in Chief. Yes, Governor, I’m talking about you.
