When You Sleep
Mary Lambert · Heart On My Sleeve
I could make you happy
I could make you love me
I could disappear completely
One foot in front of the other
Keep breathing just like they taught you
You politely asked to take a walk with me
I would’ve married you there underneath the trees
things girls do that I love:
- offer their friends sips of their coffee drinks without being asked
- scratch each others back
- say things like “smell this lotion I bought this weekend”
- compliment each other’s eyebrows
- that thing when they agree with you and their eyes get really wide and they nod their head solemnly
- throw out each others gum wrappers or chip bags when they get up
Today I hung out with Rachael / mosymoseys for the first time and it was BEAUTIFUL and magnificent and both of us had drastically overestimated how tall each other was and were astounded at how short we actually were.
we are both quite hobbit-like!
I am incredibly jealous right now.
"I first met Emily on our third episode, she was suppose to be in one episode and it was my first opportunity as the lead in a series to try to make a guest star comfortable. It was my first real scene where I had lots of dialogue with somebody that wasn’t a core part of our cast. - I remember thinking here’s my opportunity [with Emily] to really try and make her feel at home, and happy, and comfortable. And when we shot that scene when she did her little things for the first time and I laughed, that was legitimate like I was not expecting it, and it just made me crack up. - So it was right from the start we’ve always just had a nice easy time doing scenes together."
I always get asked this question and I never really have a satisfactory answer. I don’t know what it feels like to be a sex symbol. And I woke up in the morning and saw the same face, you know what I mean? It doesn’t really.. um.. but I will say this and I’ve said this in the press before, man, you know…Black men, we’re never called sexy, you know what I mean? We’re not called sexy. We’re called athletic, and intense. We’re called-described as you know, being the strong type, the silent type, but you’re never really described as the sexy [type]. Well, I’m saying in general – there’s a real generalization to what I’m saying, but in general the word sexy doesn’t apply to black men in particular. Or in a script, they don’t say Sexy. They say a muscular black man, an intense black guy. Or good-looking, but they won’t say sexy.
