what i should have done on thanksgiving:
i ate without saying grace or giving thanks.
so since most pre-written prayers sound corny to me, i found this crazy link to someone pissed off about a meeting of “deranged lesbian, feminist, buddhists out to take down all that is good with Christianity” which totally sounds like my kind of church (also, that quote is my summary of what the article reads like, fyi).
here’s an excerpt of their “crazy woman Sophia” prayer:
Our maker Sophia, we are women in your
image. … Sophia, creator God … shower us with your love. … we invite
a lover, we birth a child; with our warm body fluids we remind the world of
its pleasures and sensations. … Our guide, Sophia, we are women in your
image. … With the honey of wisdom in our mouths, we prophesy a full
humanity to all the peoples
This prayer should be recited while watching a lesbian episode of Buffy the Vampire slayer and playing with kittens.
bang, my clique bangs.
Things i’m thankful for that I didn’t mention on Thanksgiving or just because I’m sad doesn’t mean that I don’t see all the good I’ve got around me:
1 – two friends sent me mail. i got them both within days of each other. cried happy nerd tears for both. one from a poet and the other from a mother. one i’ve kissed and the other has a kiss waiting for me. both people i can’t imagine not knowing.
2 – i’m thankful for this boy, this hoodie and this red hat.
3 – my parents and my brother always have my back. also, food, home, needs met and a lesbian dog.
5- I’m thankful to be single, alone but not lonely annddddddd to be able to lay down game without being a low down dirty dog.
6 – peppermint soap & oktoberfest beer
Ok no more thanks or lists or prayers. i don’t want this post to nosedive into Lifetime movie territory .
Besides, I can’t do it better than Lindsay:
