Hi! My name is Layla, and I wish I lived where it rained. I like weird stuff, poetry, and Audrey Hepburn.

I'm just a pretentious little shit, to be honest.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you feel free to stop by anytime!

O D fuckin abbot.

The first recorded usage of the F-word in English by a dissatisfied monk in a 1528 manuscript. The “D” probably stands for “damned.” He had no problem with fuc****, but damnation was a curse too far.

“i’m so depressed,” posted the caucasian heterosexual cisgender teenage girl on her blog

last time i checked depression can affect everyone and you’re fucking trash for invalidating the struggles depressed people go through

Ode to a Nightingale
F. Scott Fitzgerald

thenightingaleable:

F. Scott Fitzgerald reads Keats’ “Ode to a Nightingale,” one of the few sound recordings of the author’s voice.  He is reciting from memory, and, towards the end, strays significantly from the original text.

**Sylvia Plath’s Tomato Soup Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting**
The Tomato Soup Cake seems to be the most popular one among Sylvia Plath’s favorite baking goods, another recipe from Sylvia’s bible The Joy of Cooking.
Scholars such as Kate Moses (see for recipe using raisins, walnuts), P.H. Davies (see for recipes using sultanas, prunes, almonds) or Graywolf Press (see for recipe using raisins, pecans or walnuts) have already dared to bake the Depression-era treat aka known as the Mystery Cake, apparently very popular in the 1930s, even though many seem to view the concept of putting tomato soup in a cake, using Erin Kottk’s words “simultaneously repulsive and appealing”.
In her awesome article Baking with Sylvia (hence the name for the theme week!) published on 15 February 2003 in The Guardian, Kate Moses, the author of Wintering: The Novel of Sylvia Plath, tells us that Sylvia Plath documented in her 1962 daily calendar that she made tomato soup cake on the day (14 November 1962) she composed Death & Co. 
Kate Moses also tells us that "Plath loved it, and she made it over and over; she wrote to her mother to inquire about the size of tomato soup cans in America, because the first cake she made in England was "a bit wet"."
I think, this will be the first Sylvia Plath cake I’m going to make, even though I’m kinda scared and repulsed myself. HAHAH! ;)

P.S.: It’s really funny how the Barbara Laage/Sylvia Plath craziness invaded the internet: in her tomato soup cake recipe Maria Denardo fromelizabethstreet.com uses the wrong picture and claims it to be Sylvia Plath! LOL! ;)

Isn’t it humbling to write hundreds and hundreds of words about sexism and gender and entitlement and then remember that “Flight of the Conchords” nailed the whole displacement-of-responsibility and nice-guy rage things in, like, four sentences?
