HOW CINCINNATI FEELS ABOUT PITTSBURGH
I drank coffee and read old books and waited for the year to end.– Richard Brautigan, Trout Fishing In America (via larmoyante)
reisandbeans: ataleoftwocrowleys: I felt like this was something I would use a lot. So I made it. Have at it, if anybody wants it. Oh my god thank you so much I’ll need this every day OH MY GOODNESS I SAW THIS THE OTHER DAY AND I WAS LIKE, ‘I HAVE TO SAVE THIS FOR THE PERFECT MOMENT TO ADD IT TO ONE OF REBECCA’S GIF SETS.’ But now you have seen it and everything is...
I don’t have to work tomorrow = Doctor Who marathon tonight.
You have killed my love. You used to stir my imagination. Now you don’t even...– Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray (via thetidepool)
Lindsy and I should write Criminal Minds
Lindsy: I want to see Reid's house.
Rebecca: I want to see Morgan's. And Morgan's dog.
Lindsy: I imagine Reid has a cat named after a scientist.
Rebecca: Schrödinger probably. I bet Morgan got it for him as a graduation present when he finally got his B.A. in philosophy.
Lindsy: Instead of a TV, his couch faces a giant table with multiple chess boards.
Rebecca: He has a TV, but he uses it for a coffee table and there are so many textbooks on it you can't tell it's a TV.
Lindsy: But it's still like anal retentive clean.
Rebecca: Yes. Like there are stacks of books everywhere but they are still ordered by the Dewey decimal system. And once for his birthday Garcia gave him an e-reader so he wouldn't have to carry so many books. It's his favorite coaster.
Lindsy: Also he has a library. And you have to check out books using those card things.
Rebecca: And the only time he's ever said "fuck" in front of his teammates is when Prentiss spilled coffee on his first edition "Breakfast of Champions" by Kurt Vonnegut.
Lindsy: He secretly loves Harry Potter. He will debate with people about how it's not scientifically possible to split yourself into seven pieces, but I'm sure there are theories about it. But he just really loved Seamus.
Rebecca: Once in conversation Reid tried to pass off his love for HP by saying, "For a children's novel it has surprisingly well-written literary elements." But when he went home he picked up his well-worn copy of Philosopher's Stone and read it slowly and lovingly.
Lindsy: So instead of reading it in 5 minutes, it took him 10.
Rebecca: He wrote one of his philosophy dissertations on the existence of an existential soul separate from the body that could be physically manifested into Horcruxes.
Rebecca: I just did the math, it would take him about four minutes to read the first Harry Potter.
I love you guys.
Thanks Rebecca, now I’m going to be looking at Supernatural GIFs for the rest of the day.

Why don’t you tell me frankly that I’m a wreck?– Lily Bart, The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
A conversation with...
Sue O'Malley: What are you majoring in?
