Texas’ unpreparedness for the icepocalypse knows no bounds. Today I drove by a tractor trying to plow ice. Who needs snow plows?
i feel as though you never truly experienced Barlights until you heard it sung live by fun., like when nate asks you to sing along and your just like DAMN, and then the confetti, then your just left like

My mother tells me
that when I meet someone I like,
I have to ask them three questions:
1. what are you afraid of?
2. do you like dogs?
3. what do you do when it rains?
of those three, she says the first one is the most important.
“They gotta be scared of something, baby. Everybody is. If they aren’t afraid of anything, then they don’t believe in anything, either.”
I met you on a Sunday, right
one look and my heart fell into
my stomach like a trap door.
on our second date,
I asked you what you were afraid of.
“spiders, mostly. being alone. little children, like, the ones who just learned how to push a kid over on the playground. oh and space. holy shit, space.”
I asked you if you liked dogs.
“I have three.”
I asked you what you do when it rains.
“sleep, mostly. sometimes I sit at the window and watch the rain droplets race. I make a shelter out of plastic in my backyard for all the stray animals; leave them food and a place to sleep.”
he smiled like he knew.
like his mom told him the same
“how about you?”
I’m scared of everything.
of the hole in the o-zone layer,
of the lady next door who never
smiles at her dog,
and especially of all the secrets
the government must be breaking
it’s back trying to keep from us.
I love dogs so much, you have no idea.
I sleep when it rains.
I want to tell everyone I love them.
I want to find every stray animal and bring them home.
I want to wake up in your hair
and make you shitty coffee
and kiss your neck
and draw silly stick figures of us.
I never want to ask anyone else
Yesterday it was 80 degrees Fahrerereareahnheit, everyone was walking around in shorts, and now less than 24 hours later the University has been closed because it’s below freezing and the roads are expected to ice over.
I love Texas winters.
Molly and I decided that pizza was worth risking our lives on the iced-over roadways. And we were totally right.
if i had comebacks like buffy i’d probably be much further in life
DFW Snowpocalypse 2013 cabin fever has set in quickly. Molly and I just had a ten minute discussion on the best course of action to take if your cat were to ever suddenly turn invisible.
