Anonymous asked: mik, if you don't mind me asking, were you already popular before you wrote your famous essay what happens when you fall in love with a writer? i mean obviously you have a large following now--compared to a regular tumblr user, of course--but was it because of that essay, or prior to that essay you were already popular? well, for me, i knew about you through that essay and ever since i had...

It’s raining. John and Lyric took a plane to Kansas this morning. John’s mother paid for a one-way ticket for them to Kansas for John’s sister’s graduation. John and Lyric should come back tomorrow. I hope they come back tomorrow because we have a big poetry event going on. It’s raining so Sophie and I are at the library. I’m working on my book again. Page 9....

Yesterday I called a mental health hotline and the lady was like “Are you considering suicide?” and I was like “Honestly that just seems like too much work for me right now” and that’s basically my life in a nutshell.
pantslessinanity: I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that if you want me to tag anything for TumblrSavior, don’t feel like you’re bothering me. Leave me an ask and I’ll make it so. friendly PSA.

queen-dandelion: oh no yahoo don’t take away all the sherlock fandom blogs oh nooo (actually please start with supernatural) (i’ll tack on an extra $1.17 for that) jordan you fucker
also sophie threw up this morning and i am so so glad my punching reflexes didn’t kick in that time
The other day, John pretended to puke on me and I reflexively punched him in the face which sucks for him because a) he has to explain that his girlfriend gave him a black eye, and b) he has to explain that it was because he pretended to puke on me.

aliensputum: grrlyman: This is so amazing and so necessary.
Pretty sure I saw a chupecabra or a dingo or something today. But I was pretty mentally deranged so it might have been just a really large bald cat bred with a possom or something.
Early morning writing naked before anyone gets up is my favorite.

The kids are helping John make coffee… How could this possibly go wrong…
I really feel like I’m living on and for the generosity of others. Last night, we got a ride out to our motorhome from Alex (thank you soooo much!!!) so that we didn’t have to walk or pay for a taxi. Once at the parking lot, we saw that our Hell’s Angel was home, he immediately came out to give us all hugs and offer us a tow. Just as we were about to head across the parking lot...
And, on the other hand, some bad news (but also good news). This morning, I went to the free clinic they have every-other week at the homeless shelter. The nurse there said that I have ‘chronic inflammation’ in my left foot (which means that it is swollen and painful, which I could have told you lol), but that it may be due to a lupus flare… She wants me to go to a doctor to see...
Good news, everyone! The truck is (hopefully) getting fixed RIGHT NOW!! Thank you so, so much to everyone who was able to donate!! We wound up finding a guy who would install the belt for us for a really decent price, so with the donations you all helped me to raise, we were able to buy the power steering belt and be able to pay the guy! So I’m at the shop right now and John is with this guy...
