what is summer?

(after kikinicolepoetry & bobschofield)

summer is tan lines. summer is the smell of chlorine rubbed into your sheets. summer is laughing with the car windows rolled down. is not waking up until two in the afternoon. is long hair and sweet sticky wine stains on your shirt. summer is a Calvin Harris EP. summer is eyes wide open. summer is piling into your best friend’s car and singing about your broken heart, and your hair is in your eyes and your thighs are sticking to the seat. is the jar my grandmother has in her kitchen, marked “blessings” and how it is full. summer is ice cream melting onto your wrist. summer is reaching for another cigarette and choking it down. is an empty parking lot in the rain. is chipped nail polish. is fireworks whizzing away into the oncoming dark. how strange men look at your bare legs. moths dancing around a street lamp. lipstick on your teeth. feels like putting concealer on your dark circles because who has time for sleep? summer is sin. is cherry pie, is an open window in the middle of a thunderstorm. is forgiveness, is never forgetting. is the boy next door offering you a hit from his bong. is coffee after midnight. summer is the shape of your back on the way out of the party. is the sound of your voice in the dark. is tulips, is my mother’s laughter on the phone, is looking online for remedies to a hangover. making french toast for dinner. is johnny saying, “everyone is leaving.” is lying in bed naked with the air conditioner blasting. summer is desperate and fleeting. is a half-dressed girl waiting to be kissed. is stupid miserable hopeful. is everything we could have ever wanted.

Wine in the Afternoon - Franz Ferdinand 

So summer stains a sky with inky swirls that bring the thunder low. But I don’t mind, I’m doing things and doing them with you. And if you’re smart you’ll put that book back down, you’ll drag me to the floor, drag me down for more.

Franz Ferdinand - Wine In The Afternoon

Since it’s a huge snow day here in the north - all businesses and schools are closed! ALL of them! - I have decided to take the day off of everything else that I normally do and spend the day reading, drinking wine, and watching my most-favorite/most-awful TV shows.

Which means at 3:30 pm, I am now fully buzzed and watching MTV’s Challege: Battle of The Exes. I mean…CT and Diem, right you guys? Why are they not back together yet, when it’s already the 5th or 6th episode of the series?! He’s so tall and built and MANLY with his Bawstin accent and she’s so sweet and smart with that long thick hair that looks super soft… Also, their personalities are pretty cool, too.

So anyways. After this I’m going to continue reading “Game of Thrones.”

Talk to you guys later!

So this is summer and the gallow gas is running low
But I don’t mind, I’m doing things and I’m doing them with you

Well, you know he’s gonna want his rent tonight
But we’ll have to tell him how to swallow
All the rent this month

So summer stains the sky with inky swirls that bring the thunder low
But I don’t mind, I’m doing things and doing them with you

And if you’re smart you’ll put that book back down
You’ll drag me to the floor
Drag me down for more

Drinking wine
Drinking wine in the afternoon
Do-do, do-dooo

Drinking wine
Drinking wine in the afternoon
Do-do, do-dooo

Tomorrow’s Thursday, that’s my day of work
That’s my day of walking up the merry hill road making up
Some lie about some job applied for

Well, I’ve been drinking wine
Well, I’ve been drinking wine in the afternoon
Do-do, do-dooo

Fifty little filters left their filthy buts behind
Left their blackened heads down
In the ashes that’s the last before

I pulled apart and placed within the papers
For a drag of five deserves a second life
Deserves a second life

Don’t we all, don’t we all
Don’t we all, don’t we all, all

Love drinking wine
Love drinking wine in the afternoon (pa-pa…)
Do-do, do-dooo (pa-pa…)

Love drinking wine
Love drinking wine in the afternoon (pa-pa…)
Do-do, do-dooo (pa-pa…)

Bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine
Bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine
Bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine

Franz Ferdinand - Wine In The Afternoon

Is it weird that I call “Wine in the Afternoon”, “Alcoholism is Sexy”?

There’s a line about drinking the rent money. I’m sorry, that’s not cute or romantic to me. Someone in this relationship–if not both of you–need some bloody help because you have an addiction that’s about to leave you homeless and on the street, drinking your goddamn afternoon wine. 

With that said, it’s still one of my absolute favorite Franz songs. >_<
