THAT GIRL WITH THE GREEN HAIR IS MY FRIEND AND SHE’S GREAT

My current list of poems to write

-Religious Broadcast Poem?
-Absalom
-A guide for queers (critiquing the queer community or aspects of it, trans and bi erasure, eating disorders, having to give up your religion, insistence on a certain sexual behavior, alcoholism and partying)
-“God asked for consent why can’t you?”
-Maybe write that interfaith relationship piece
-Dear Richard Dawkins. 

In the past 24 hours I have introduced my girlfriend to the first Captain America movie (which she loved, go me), eaten lavender ice cream and obtained whale socks. IT HAS BEEN A GOOD 24 hours. 

Girlfriend: So Leah is now president of Yavneh (an orthodox Jewish prayer group on campus), so I'm rooming with the president of Yavneh and I'm going to be president of Egal (her Jewish prayer group) next year. This is ridiculous.

Me: Also you're dating a peer minister for the Episcopalians!

Girlfriend: I swear to God I am a secular human being.

Me: Whatever you say dear.

On the topic of “Christian seders” | father christopher

curtisfarr:

An Episcopal priest shares his particular perspective on Christians hosting their own seders. His conclusion: don’t. Instead, politely ask to join one already in progress and approach it as a learning opportunity.

Good advice, and I’ll add: do seek to join with our Jewish brothers and sisters in a seder at some point in your life.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
