He glanced back at the wall. How like a mirror, too, her face. Impossible; for how many people did you know who reflected your own light to you? People were more often—he searched for a simile, found one in his work—torches, blazing away until they whiffed out. How rarely did other people’s faces take of you and throw back to you your own expression, your own innermost trembling thought?
—  Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

sometimes it’s just as simple as 

i’m in love with you and you’re in love with me

we’re both committed to our faith, to each other, and to our relationship

sometimes it’s not a long soliloquy, including metaphors and simile and hyperbole

sometimes it’s really that simple

in a very simple way, i can sum up why this works

why must we be outnumbered in our hatred for nicki minaj

I don’t know but she fucking sucks so fucking much I want to tear my skin off and jump into boiling water.

“Dick bigger than a tower, I ain’t talking about Eiffels”

Yes you are, you literally just set that metaphor up 5 words earlier. It’s either a tower or it isn’t. The Eiffel Tower is a tower. Which tower is it bigger than? Specifically the Eiffel? 

“Fuck those skinny bitches, fuck those skinny bitches in the club”

I think Nicki will find that her BMI is quite normal and is in no danger of morbid obesity. 

“So I pulled up in the Jag, and I hit him with a jab like
Dun duh dun dun dun dun dun”

This is a simile that simply does not make sense. What is Dun duh dun dun dun dun duh? Is she hitting him with a pot? What’s happening? The imagery in this is tragically lacking.

She’s worse than Lady Gaga and that’s saying something because Lady Gaga is shit.

ha senso parlare di celti in italia?

assolutamente si.

Guarda, se ti interessa l’argomento ti posso dire vita morte e miracoli dei celti in Italia perchè la mia tesi di laurea è proprio su queste popolazioni.

Effettivamente parlare di celti è un po’ confusionario, perché è una parola che intende tantissimi diversi gruppi divisi per mezza Europa ma accomunati dalla lingua e da una simile religione. 

Ancora prima della discesa dei Galli nel nord Italia nel 390-388 a.C. questo territorio era abitato da numerosissime popolazioni celtiche che commerciavano in relativa tranquillità con Etruschi, Veneti e con il nord Europa.

How vulnerable
we would all be if longing
shone through our bodies,

if our skins were translucent
lanterns flushed with yellow flame

leaping in the strange
and unpredictable winds
of our desire, like

the neon Morse code fireflies
use to brazenly flick the night.

—  Lee Ann Roripaugh, section 3 “Lumen” from “Bioluminescence,” in On the Cusp of a Dangerous Year (Southern Illinois University Press, 2009)
