"Did I mention that there’s no pumpkin in your pumpkin spice latte? It’s nutmeg (and a few other spices). In other words, that delicious sip of fall you just imbibed is actually a pure simulacrum, of that fourth order. Pumpkin spice doesn’t conceal the fact that there are no longer seasons, pumpkin spice has no referent in reality, it exists for its own sake. The only thing “pumpkin spice”refers to is itself."
"I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone."
— Rainer Maria Rilke, from The Book of Hours (via ancient-serpent)
I learned about belted maxi-pads from Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret.
Do you know they changed that in the new editions?
