i L O V E getting discounted as a true athlete all the time!! because i break bones for this sport but i still am expected to walk on that stage and do a 2-minute set like it’s literally a walk down the runway, yet for years i had to watch cry baby cutler limp off the field if he hurt his finger in the first quarter. catch me walking off stage like my foot isn’t broken, choking down some advil in between rounds, and still putting a pageant smile on my face while i hit the floor so hard it shakes your core. dancers are badass as hell but we still have to look like artists while doing everything you can do but we do it better and you have the audacity to tell me i’m not an athlete and this isn’t a sport. fine. let me be so good, so flawless that it looks that easy. so easy that when i tell you to try it, you break more bones than me. kiss my swarovski covered ass.

Me, an Irish Dancer: *TRANSCENDS THROUGH DIMENSIONS TO A REALITY WHERE ONLY ST. PATRICK’S DAY TRAD SET IS PLAYING ON REPEAT, NIGHTMARES ABOUT SLIPPERY ASS PERFORMANCES STAGES, WALKING INTO THE GROCERY STORE IN YA WIG AND THE CASHIER IS GONNA GIVE U T H E L O O K , ‘IS THAT UR REAL HAIR’ SHE’LL SAY.
Him: so what do you think about Trump being president?
Me: it’s a nightmare.
Him: I have to say, I prefer him to Hillary, hands down. At least he’s not - what are you doing?
Me, surreptitiously cutting a piece of his hair with my witchcraft knife: Nothing! Please keep telling me your super important insights!
“This season opens with Lorelai and Rory returning from their backpacking trip through Europe. I’m proud yet horrified to tell you that the entire outfit I’m wearing in the first scene - the kelly-green EVERYONE LOVES AN IRISH GIRL T-shirt, the Ireland soccer jacket, and the over-sized knit pom-pom hat with the word DUBLIN on it - were all from my personal closet. Oh, and the gold clover necklace was mine too. I was hitting the Irish thing hard.” - Lauren Graham, Talking as fast as I can
