Last month on the running iMessage txt that I keep with my three best friends, the question was asked, do you say ‘cuss word’ or ‘curse word’ when referring to a profane word like fuck. I said I prefer cuss to curse, but then realized in the days after that I say them interchangeably. So basically, fuck it, I will use whatever the damn word I want. (Also, I love to CUSS. Cursing is for witches.)
After last week’s insane week (Boston Marathon bombing, Boston suspect hunt and capture, Boston love, Senate KILLING the gun control bill, fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas, and my own personal 10-day long asthma attack, I just could not get any Hot Links posted. Work is also cah-razy bizzy, but in the fantastic and inspiring way, so I am very happy for that. I am simply, just very tired at the end of the days. And saying, fuck it, like, a lot.
In the spirit of keeping going and knowing when to say fuck it, I have a few, probably outdated-by-mere-days links that you have already seen. Because after a week like last week, it’s more important tell people that you love them repeatedly, and to laugh your fucking ass off.
Celebrity Close-Up. SO weird. (h/t Kottke.)
Two awesome stories from my hometown!! That dude who wrote Game of Thrones bought the Jean Cocteau Theatre, AND the city council passed a resolution supporting gay marriage!
And finally, this is the beautiful cover of Boston Magazine. Read about how they pulled it off here. From Editor in Chief, John Wolfson:
To me the cover is about two things: perseverance and unity. By itself, each shoe in the photograph is tiny, battered, and ordinary. Together, though, they create something beautiful, powerful, and inspirational. Remove just one shoe and you begin to diminish, in some small way, the overall effect. Collectively, they are the perfect symbol for Boston, and for our response to the bombings.
