So I’m at an old cafe by the beach alone and I got up to use the restroom and buy a croissant. When I returned this was in my book ~
You know when people say “What’s the alternative to cat-calling?” This. This is the alternative.
idk this would make me feel really creeped out.
yeah same my heart would freeze and then i would run out of the cafe and make sure i dumped the note in the trash somewhere
‘i have been staring at you without your knowledge and thinking about how you are attractive, i would like to watch your reaction now without you knowing which stranger i am or whether or not i am nearby still or even following you, for some reason i couldn’t keep this to myself’
“Other people shouldn’t be allowed to look at me for too long without informing me first, nor should they be too shy to talk to me in person. And if their choice of words is too flattering, and then they proceed to ask me nicely if I would like to meet, they will be deemed as a creep for being social in a way I don’t like.”
It’s not being social in a way i don’t like (though it’s that too, but that’s personal) it’s being social in a way that puts them in power over me. They’ve seen me, they’ve made a point of saying they have observed me when I cannot observe them, they might be watching me read their note, they can follow me, they know who I am, but I don’t know who they are. If I deem them a creep, that’s because they’ve been watching me and they’ve decided they want to know me based just on my looks and a judgment they made about me without hearing a word from me. If you come at someone saying ‘I have decided you are a great and lovely person just by watching you’ you’re saying ‘I have made up a personality for you based on my snap judgements and attraction to you, I hope you feel like pandering to that’. Baseless flattery is just baseless judgement, even if it’s nice
It probably isn’t scary to most people, but I have been followed around by some eerie folk, and it usually starts out this sweetly. It’s not like it’s a terrible crime, it would just skeeve me the fuck out.
I’ve gotten a note kinda like this once. It was super creepy and made me very uncomfortable.

Three-time Emmy winner James Gandolfini has died in Italy at the age of 51 of a possible heart attack. According to HBO, he was on vacation at the time. The “Sopranos” actor appeared recently in “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.” He had been working on Fox Searchlight’s “Animal Rescue” and TV show “Criminal Justice” as well as “Taxi 22.”
He is survived by his wife, Deborah Lin, and a son.
I know I’ve criticized the Sopranos for not being the best written show of all time (still deserves to be on that list), but I said nothing about the acting. James Gandolfini was a tremendous actor. With the wrong actor in that part, the show never would’ve made it past the fist season. Gandolfini’s performance not only ran an interesting gamut of emotions, it caused ME an interesting array of emotions. He made me laugh, he made me angry, he made me feel sympathy, he made me feel regret. Those can all be written or intended from a script, but to take a character who would be so easy to hate and to make him someone I’d feel such strong feelings about, as if he were someone I knew, that takes an utterly unique and incredible talent. Bravo, James. You were one of the greats.
you touched my heeaaart you touched my sooouul you changed my liiiife and all my goals and love is bliiind and that I knew when my heart was blinded byyyy you
We have a new 5 Euro bill and I can feel the pain.
I still can’t get over the fact that the new 5 euro bill looks like freaking monopoly money.
meh, i don’t care, they can change it however they want, i still haven’t got over the end of THE-MOST-AWESOME-BILL-EVER-CREATED a.k.a. the 50 Francs Saint-Exupéry, with its hidden little sheep and hidden Saint-Exupéry portrait and the tiny words at the top that you can only see if you look closely. ;_;
