Guide to the Jeremy Kyle Show
So much goes on in my skype’s with Dylan.
He’s studying mountains this term so I learned a lil bit about those, his football team won 2-0 on Sunday morning, he “doesn’t much care” about Scottish independence but he’s “kind of happy I guess” that they voted no, he is really into Vesuvius at the moment, he saved up all his pocket money and bought a psp, had a haircut.
It’s all go for the boy wonder.
Rachel, we’re going to Glasgow.
srsly—tho said: WAY TO GO, YOU’RE A BABE. also making the most of your study abroad experience. such a fucking babe.
Thank u, luv u
Once I ate a slice of pizza with a knife and fork, and judging by people’s reactions, you literally would have thought I had kicked a baby. Everyone was freaking out. It was even on Huffpost politics and CNN, as though it was an actual news story, which I just think is insane.
It’s almost as though people would rather have had a picture of me eating with my hands, decorating my face with tomato sauce like I was born in a barn for Christ sake. But that is not something you’ll get from me. If you want a picture of a female politician shovelling food into her mouth like Newt Gingrich at a fourth of July picnic, then I have two words for you - Bachmann. Corndog.
But not Palin, and most definitely not Pizza.
I’m a lady Jesus Christ.
I wasn’t raised by wolves.
Went canvassing in Whittier today with Planned Parenthood / LA LGBT Centre & it was pretty incredible. It was kind of terrifying at first just knocking on people’s doors to talk with them about reproductive rights but I had a lot of really positive conversations and even got 4 people to change their minds on the importance of access to abortions (snaps 4 me). Some people were kinda intensely against it and a bit scary, but for the most part folks were nice and happy to chat and be respectful. It was also so much more emotional than I thought it would be. A lot of people really want to talk about this issue and have really personal experiences they want to share, but I guess don’t really have a forum to do so and end up claiming points of view they think are socially acceptable but haven’t necessarily been able to work out for themselves. It was really cool to talk to people who realised mid-conversation that they actually did believe in access to abortion when they really considered it. It happened so much more than I thought it would.
Also, one of the women I talked to told me my accent was sexy and was definitely flirting with me once she found out I was with the LGBT centre. She was like 40. But I appreciated her boldness if nothing else.
