Whole lotta labia.
Pointless knowledge nugget of the day*: Of the fantastic Churchill quote "we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender." Only the word "surrender" is not descended from Old English. Which, frankly says something about the strength of both English and the English.

*keeping in mind that I just heard this in an audio book about the history of English and have not validated it in any way, I just thought it sounded cool. I'm about as reliable as your average public bathroom stall wall.

In other news, because it felt so good to get thoughts down and out of the swirling amorphous anxiety-well of my brain, I'm probably going to put up a post later talking about the homework my ED doctor sent me out with this week. I'll be about food and probably about shame and will absolutely include lines about how it's incredibly obnoxious of me to wank this much over my first world woes while there are actual big crises in the world. But then I shall imagine Kiltie giving me *stern face* and remember that just because it's globally small doesn't mean it isn't locally painful. Anyway, it won't be like the B&H posts and I expect it to be not at all inspiring, cheery, and may very well be triggering to those dealing with anxiety disorders, food issues, etc. So raise your hand if you'd like to be on it. By default I'm excluding everyone else because.. well.. it's wanking. And like masturbation it wont be pretty for y'all to watch, but I could certainly benefit from it.

I'd like to be on it, if you're comfortable having me there. And I'm sorry that I didn't comment on your earlier post. But I'm glad it made you feel better. I often find that posting things to LJ makes them feel more manageable. Just articulating things in words, in a way that some other people besides me will see, can be very helpful.

Exactly! I mean it shouldn't make a difference that there will be an audience, but it does. It makes me think more about how to articulate my thoughts. Also congrats on grad school!

*raises hand* As someone who's been using her own journal as a place to get thoughts down and out for a decade now, I say go for it.

Also, food issues. Oy.

Molly, you're the best. Also, even if I never run again in my whole life, seeing your running posts always makes me smile and feel inspired.

Uh, it's probably a bad time to mention participating in that marathon made me realize how much I hate running, isn't it? *laughs*

Still, almost four years at my goal weight, so there's that. Some days are easier than other, but it's never easy. I know you know how it is.

I don't know if I will have anything of use to say, but I'd like to be there if you are OK with that.

xoxo

It's not like you were going to get out of it. I'd just bug you over IM. Or hound you with texts. Stalker is such a harsh word.

Would you make the stern face if I asked you to? I mean.. just for.. reasons? *wink*

(and would you wear the boots while you do it?)

I don't know that I'd be helpful, but I love you. And support you. And that is all.

I am, as usual, in. Wanking posts are my favorite kind of posts. Wait. That came out wrong.

I'm late to respond (was at a birth *all* day yesterday) - but I'd love to be included in your filter.

I love you - all of your bits and pieces - and an interesting parallel I'm writing up a class on "Earning surrender" ...

Love <3

If it's not too late, I'm raising my hand.

That English-language trivia is fascinating.
