This is the end of the queue. I’ve gone away to teach Mycology to youngsters and be a camp counselor, so I shan’t be on the tumblr (most probably) for many months.
I would very much appreciate letters from any or all of my followers. If any of you have free time/ wish to practice your penmanship/ feel like doing a good deed/ need to contact me, post may be addressed to

I wish all of you the loveliest of summers.
- C.S. Lewis (via kiltedpipeguy)
Signs that you are detaching from this world:
- Forgetting how to form words with your mouth
- You are aging backwards
- Only animals notice your presence
- Scribal colophon at the end of a (handwritten) fourteenth century manuscript. The translation: “Here ends the second part of the Summa of brother Thomas Aquinas of the Order of Preaching Friars, the longest, wordiest, and most tedious thing ever written: thank God, thank God, and again thank God.” (via magnicifent)
So this probably is never going to happen, but I think it would be really cool if instead of using the word friendzone to blame other people because nobody will engage in any sort of amorous congress with you and you feel entitled, I think it should be re-purposed, and should refer to the “zone” of friendship” in which one has moved past the “acquaintance” level stuff, where you go in their fridge without a second thought, or are able to be with them without having to speak a lot, or you watch terrible movies, or are just generally very much a part of each others lives.
"Yeah man, s/he totally like, put me in the friend zone. We grab brunch most saturdays!"
"Yeah, I wish I were in the friendzone. We haven’t spoken in so long, and I feel like we’ve just really drifted apart as people"
"Man, I just befriended him/her sooo hard. - totally in the friend zone"
"Man, I just hate the friendzone! It’s such a redundant term, what was wrong with friendship!??"
Obvious that last person is utterly wrong, you should all do this. With your help, we can all make the friendzone a fun place for everybody, because a word as fun as friendzone shouldn’t be about hating women/not seeing them as people/ all that jazz, it should be about mimosas and texting about how crazy that thing on Game of Thrones just was
