I’m not going to be ashamed of a goddamn thing I read. Roxane Gay’s ‘Bad’ Feminism - NYTimes.com (via rachelfershleiser)

My friend takes way better concert photos than I do (or really, better than anyone). 

Hi, Dave

And try and try for the rest of my life.

There are days when I have to turn off my feminism to watch Real Housewives. I know the problems inherent in these shows, and I’m not going to fall for the damaging messages. Life is short, and, yes, I want to watch a bunch of women vie for the attentions of a man on The Bachelor. I just do.

Breakfast.  Nora Springs, IA. 
Two rhubarb slices.  In the middle a delicacy the Methodist church ladies call “Tri-berry”.  The pies come from churches all over town.  So it’s a multi-denominational pie stand.

There are a lot of reasons I want to do this ride next year, but pie is definitely at the top of the list.

Take me back.

3 miles into our ride this AM we ran into some interesting Iowa clouds.  Strong winds blew it through pretty quickly.  We stayed dry… And saw it as an another opportunity to marvel at the beauty of this state.

Y’all.I’ve been trapped inside a hotel for work meetings for the past few days and NPR’s On the Road Tumblr feed has been keeping me going. I had never heard about RAGBRAI before and now I totally plan to do it next year. And my favorite cross-country cyclist is going to join me. Which seriously is just the best, happiest turn of events.
