Throwing this post up quickly! I’m sick and need to get back in bed.
A reader sent along the above photo from Donk’s Pinterest page. Such a bizarre comment! The new Bolt Bus girl?
In other news, Jena la Flamme surprised Antlerface in Switzerland. I’m guessing he posts NOTHING about her visit.
Finally, “Olivia,” Jordan Reid’s fawning assistant, wrote the most asslicking paean in the history of the internet. From “From an Outsider’s Point of View,” though I’m confused as to how Olivia is an outsider:
Olivia here, again – while Jordan is ruminating on the beauty she’s seeing, I thought I’d come by and share an interesting POV; I met Jordan over ten years ago via her blogmates on NonSociety (fun fact: I designed the NonSociety t-shirts…weird) and when Jordan began Ramshackle Glam, I naturally journeyed over here and I’ve been a loyal reader ever since. There have been so, so many posts of Jordan’s which have hit me in the feels, made me laugh, and taught me something; but, there have also been posts of Jordan’s which have left me scratching my head or with my hands over my eyes. I’d thought I’d share some of my all-time favorite Ramshackle Glam posts, and a few which made me shake my head. What’s your favorite post of Jordan’s? Which Ramshackle Glam post made you laugh or cry? I’d love to know!
1. The Great Impossible is one of those posts I bookmarked on my computer and would read almost daily. I almost memorized these lines, “Because marriage is hard – so hard that sometimes it feels impossible. It’s so consuming that when it isn’t working, there’s no lonelier place to be than next to the person you promised to spend forever with.” It felt so nice to know other women were having similar thoughts, but also could come back from the thoughts and grow and learn. I feel similar about this post, too. At the time of reading both of them, I felt so seen and heard. Marriage can be tough, and it’s okay to talk about the valleys as well as the peaks. In fact, Jordan talks about the fact that ‘we don’t talk about it’ in this post – another fave.
She rereads this drivel? What is my favorite Jordo post? OMG! I’ll have to think about it! Such a tough question. Right up there with “What’s your favorite Robert Altman film?” and “Which Anthony Trollope novel have you read the most times?”.
I think this idiot recently left something in the RBD comments about Jordo being such an “influencer.” Jesus, Olivia, get a fucking life.
