My parents are both from Long Island and my mom especially has a pretty distinct accent, so I grew up thinking that words like “rototiller” were actually “rotatilla.”
It’s also pretty telling that rototillers were a relevant part of my childhood.
COOL BROTHER APPRECIATION POST
So I was looking around my room and it occurred to me that I have a lot of nifty shit from my brother, and I have decided to make a post about it. First, a flower pot that he painted BY HAND when he noticed that one of my jade plants needed re-potting! Second, a plush flag that he made out of felt! And third, a beautiful quilt he made, again by hand, because he’s a boss. MY BRO IS PRETTY COOL IMO
I would link you all to his tumblr, but the little bastard is holding the url over my head…

So my mom sent me a book I needed for class but already owned and taped this cutout heart to it.
The book was A Shameful Act: The Armenian Genocide and the Question of Turkish Responsibility by Taner Akçam. Thanks Mom??

My cousin friended me on the ol’ FB. (She and I have the same first and last names so it was a little Rod Serling-y.) The last time we “talked” was last September at her older sister’s wedding. SHOULD I ACCEPT HER REQUEST or whatever it’s called???
