"Carrie and I are more romantic than any other romantic relationship I’ve ever had—that sense of anticipation about seeing the other person, the secret bond. But things don’t become obligatory. I’m not thinking, I’m doing this because you’re my girlfriend; I’m just thinking, I love Carrie." - Fred Armisen
the first part of this quote is: “Armisen and Brownstein text each other every night before bed. Brownstein says of their friendship, “Sometimes I think it’s the most successful love affair either of us will ever have.” Both claim that it wouldn’t work if they were romantically involved. “It would be colder, because we’ve both treated our romantic relationships in a cold way,” Armisen says.”

platonic friendships have the capacity for deep love, and that is an important thing to realize and appreciate.
platonic friendships definitely have the capacity for deep love but i take anything fred armisen says about relationships with a grain of salt since he is known for and has admitted being a really terrible romantic partner. also, instead of being in an actual healthy romantic relationship that evolves and ebbs and flows and involves actual work and growing with a completely different person, it’s way easier to just have your cake and eat it too, have no commitment or responsibility to another person, just have the best parts of a relationship without any of the realities.
I’ve known this for years now watching this show but tonight more than ever I can see that Mad Men is a show about people dealing with huge shattering monumental lonely cores that they can’t seem to figure out how to fill or how to live with.
(This turned out to be very long so if you can’t deal with that walk away now. If you can, then kudos to you and also I love you for putting up with me <3)
I was expecting people to be a little pissed with Danny but dear lord I didn’t expect people to be THAT pissed off to the extent that they now hate him.
Naturally, I went all ‘oh hell no’ and did a finger snap. (That is a lie. But I like to pretend I have sass so let’s pretend I did that ok.)
I know what you’re thinking. ‘Of course she would defend him.’ Well, yeah, probably. But I’m not blindly defending him here.
So let’s explore the character of Danny Castellano…
This has spoilers for this past week’s episode of The Mindy Project but it is so thoughtfully written and just has so many things Ian and I have talked about and think about the show and Danny Castellano as a character and just his development on the show.

stef and i had a sun dappled bestie dinner tonight at swank southern complete with:
I don’t trust people who don’t like Kate Bush.
I never got any wisdom teeth in my head so this is a little reminder (close to where they should be) to use all of the knowledge and wisdom I’ve learned along the way in my life.
I wear lipstick so regularly that when I don’t look kind of sick, don’t i. #selfie #lipstickproblems
dr strangegrub: or how I learned to stop eating bagels and love drinking my green juice too fast to take a photo of it
also i’ll have you know the unicorns announced they had broken up on my 18th birthday as if that isn’t a fucking sign of something i don’t know what but something. i’m just saying, if they get back together a decade later on my 28th birthday this year, you’re fucking welcome.
