~*~* please feel free to suggest music. i like glitter sounds, minor tonalities, female vocals, dischordant distortion, haunting harmonies, & complex layering*~*~
my favorite cigarettes: i’m a cigarette vagabond… don’t have favorites. i was seduced by djarum blacks, chain-smoked camels with russians, shared american spirits with drunk hipsters, rolled spliffs when i was lonely, flirted with fantasias, got broke with pall malls, and now i puff on cowboy killers. though i’m in love with herbal cigarettes and i’ve been known to smoke tea, flowers, and catnip, meow <3.
my favorite teas: homemade lavendar milk tea, honeyed date tea, ethiopian tea (chunks of sugared orange, cloves, & cinnamon), blooming tea, everything from Teavana, and jasmine-green… but i could list off lovely tea for hours. i just love drinking flowers :3
my favorite alcohol: absolut wild tea, witches’ brew, blue moon, bloody marys, sah-tea, soft parade (with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries!), hop slam, homemade sangria, howl (a pitch-black lager by magic hat), and i’ll drink any wine with a beautiful label, because i’m superficial and uneducated. i love the warm glow of wine and fruity beers. :)
my diet: coffee and tea and cigarettes for breakfast, lavendar tea for lunch, mushrooms/fish/veggies/sushi for dinner, wine and beer for dessert. i’m a happy pisces pescetarian (with a heavy raw food side), who eats herbs and broccoli and flowers, consumes ungodly amounts of liquids, and loves fish as friends and food. i’ve pretty much been some form of peskie or veggie or vegan or fruitarian since i was in the third grade. meat makes my stomach sick, dulls the brain, promotes unsustainable and inhumane farming practices, and is pretty gross. there are so many more beautiful things in the world to eat! i don’t know why we insist on stuffing our faces with it, and making it the staple of the american diet. i am addicted to seafood though as japanese cuisine was a huge part of my childhood (& college-hood), but i lean towards eating sustainable seafood.
am i gay, straight, bisexual, or pansexual? i’m just sexual. if i had to label myself, i’d be pansexual, which… beyond having frequent sex with pots and pans and various kitchen utensils, means that i view men and women equally and love whoever i want based on love alone. i love having sex with girls. it’s very sweet and passionate. i usually end up dating boys because cosmic, single, weird, pretty, dirty, nearby ladies are hard to come by… plus boys are just so chill and sit around and fart and play video games and don’t bleed and cry everywhere, haha. i’m not sure how i feel about monogamy… i’m a very jealous cat… but i hate the restrictions of the two person marriage, nuclear family scenario. if it was up to me, i would love and fuck everything, but i respect the feelings of whoever i’m with and i don’t want to hurt people. i’m still discovering what’s right for me. but i know i want to love many, many more ladies.
what’s your perfect kind of girl? she has weed stems and bits of glitter in her rainbow, dready hair. she smells like a garden… jasmine and lavender and herbs and earth and roses and rabbit ghosts. she has freckly shoulders and knees, warm skin, a pierced face, and forest eyes. she dresses like the back of a closet and leaves lipstick prints on cigarettes. she dances with wine and whispers cosmic lullabies in my ear while nibbling my neck. she braids flowers in my hair and draws third eyes on my face. she throws her clothes on the flower, sings in the bath, listens to NPR, and smokes cheap tobacco with her coffee or tea. she has a sickly sweet mind with a dark side. her head is either lost in a book or a garden, her hair is always messy, she eats like a bird, and drinks like a fish. she surprises me with ghost stories and princess treasures. she works hard, loves hard, plays hard, cries hard, dreams hard, and lives hard. she loves spells and buddha and fish and shrooms as much as i do. she runs away with me in the forest and we smoke ganja and roll in the leaves. she aches to travel… she wants to ride wild horses and put footprints in the mountains. she worships the full moon, and we make tree forts and blanket forts and secret cults and cacti coven together. she blesses mead, grows her own herbs, makes jewelry, and creates art in everything she does. she is humble but gorgeous and smart and interesting. she curls up with me like we’re yin and yang kittens, as we put spells on stars, drink and smoke ourselves into a stupor, read faerytales, sing songs about heartbreak, kiss noses and ears, share stories with ghosts, and fall asleep under the ocean.
