Thanks so much!
You actually didn’t ask a question. You just repeated something I stated in the affirmative but put a question mark at the end.
Well, my favorite books are as follows…some are for children and teens primarily, but I feel they can be enjoyed by folks of all ages:

The Sandman series of graphic novels
East of Eden
Picasso and Dora
Anything by SARK
Anything by Art Buchwald
Anything by Molly Ivins
Shit, the DeLorean. I have more love in my heart for the DESIGN of the Ectomobile, but the motherfucking DeLorean goes through TIME, man! TIME!
I heartily dig the mid-afternoon nap!
She probably did, for herself. Let her go and let her be whoever she needs to be. People with mental illness are a handful and a half to date, and I say that as someone who has BEEN that handful and a half. I hope you are getting the active, intensive psychiatric care you need. BPD is no joke and you’ve got to keep that shit in check as best as you and your doctor can. There is love for you and there will be a good match for you, but if your BPD is out of control or just not under enough control, you must take care of yourself first before bringing someone else into the situation. Good luck. It will get better.
You sound like you’re having a fucking pity party, which is highly unattractive. Is this “woe is me” mood justified and temporary, or is this how you go through life? It’s time to go to counseling and up that self-esteem, lady/dude. Find out if you really act like a doormat, and if so, why.
Since you read the answer to the last question and were able to cut and paste a quote from it, you should already know.
Sara: So Adira, the other day I was mistaken for you yet again. Some dude wrote on my Facebook wall that he’d loved my song about Tiny Vaginas at Whiplash. I knew instantly it must be you. Has anyone mistaken you for me recently?
Adira: Yes! I did Hannibal Burress’s show at The Knitting Factory, and when I came off stage someone said, do you know who you look like? And I said, Sara B?? I’m very flattered.
Sara: Me, too. Not just because I’d totally bang you if we were both 100% gay or just drunk and also if you weren’t married, but because you’re really good at music. I always wished I could be good at singing. Who is your favorite favorite musician of ever?
Adira: I don’t know if I have a favorite, I really do like so many people for so many reason. I’ve never been good with favorites. What about you? Do you have a favorite?
Sara: I’d say I love Barbra Streisand for purely sentimental reasons, as she reminds me of my mom angrily vacuuming during my childhood. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Phil Collins. I OWN MY TRUTH. Adira, tell me what you’ve got coming up. You know, a thing about which you are excited.
Adira: So, yes I’m very excited about a monthly show that I’ve been very lucky to be a part of called The Party Machine. The next show is happening Friday 2/18 at 10pm Union Hall [in Brooklyn]. It’s going to be an amazing show Jon Glaser, Kristen Schaal, Michael Showalter and Seth Herzog are all performing
and of course hosted by the wonderful Lisa Delarios and Arden Myrin
Now I’ve heard YOU have some cool shows coming up?
Sara: Adira, it’s fucking fascinating that you should bring that up.
I shall in fact be performing at a show called Bad Romance on Tuesday, 2/15 at 7:30 PM at Noi’s Nook, a space in the back of a shop in D.C. called Go Mamma Go! Me and Hillary Buckholtz are producing it, and it features comics telling true stories of love and heartbreak and boning.
I have no idea what story I’m going to tell.
And then also I’ll be at Marymount University on Wednesday 2/16, giving an Inspiring Talk (TM) about taking care of yourself in college.
And also, I’m unemployed so someone should offer me a job.
I’ve seriously considered applying to Glenn Beck’s version of HuffPo, The Blaze.
Mmmm. Flaming, delicious Beck.
Adira, I’d like to conclude this penetrating interview by asking you what your spirit animal is.
Sara i have more questions for you!
My spirit animal is a squirrel.
What are your tips for college survival?
Sara: oh oh! oh go ahead!
My tips for college survival are as follows: drink lots of water, make sure you sleep regularly, remember to wear your shower shoes in the bathroom, and make friend with the counseling center.
Also: try not to have sex with EVERYBODY.
(Do as i say, not as my mouth did.)
Adira: I think that’s sound advice. And try not to get mono.
Did you get mono in college?
Sara: I didn’t! Did you?
Adira: I did!
It was terrible! It’s the STD of making out.
Sara: Hey Adira, do you watch Glee?
Because two of the kids got mono from kissing!
Adira: I actually don’t have a TV so I don’t watch Glee. But oof!
Sara: I feel like the episode would give you PTSD.
Adira: I would be in the fetal position crying.
Do you ever get embarrassed talking about boning on stage?
I mean, not boning while on stage.
Sara: Nah. This one time I was dating a dude and his mom came to see the show, and I decided to hold back a little. The show was called “Jersey Whore: An Evening with Sara Benincasa.” Instead of holding back as I’d planned, I ended up working bluer than I’d ever worked before, which is something when one considers I am fucking filthy on my sweetest of days.
She loved it, though, so it was okay.
Adira, thank you for taking the time to sit down with me on Gchat and discuss these matters of great national import with me.
Adira: Thank you for sharing your time with me!
Sara: I WILL! you also are wonderful.
Adira: And tell America to watch out for our twins video!
Sara: I will, dude. xoxo
Sara B for Prez!
Totally happens, and yes, he probably is that embarrassed. But if he’s that insecure and ego-driven, you’re better off without him. You need a REAL man who can laugh at his own flaws and insecurities, or at least roll with them and move on.
Ghosts. Or something spirit-y in the form of energy. There have been so many stories about this sort of thing throughout history. Now, just because a lot of people SAY something doesn’t make the something true. For example, a lot of people SAY Israel isn’t a theocracy. Also, a lot of people SAY George W. Bush was a great president! But I dunno…the ghost thing seems to cut across race, class, gender, culture…tons of people have seen ghosts. It seems universal. Maybe we’re all just nuts and liars.
I suppose the way I feel about ghosts is the way I feel about God.
Why does your ass ache? Are you buttfucking? Buttfucking sucks and I refuse to do it. The anus is an outhole. I get it, I get it, some people are into it. Personally, I find a sperm enema pointless. Oh, and you’re searching for a connection and you want to be loved, just like all humans. It’s normal. Stop fucking this dude and start fucking yourself, literally, with your hands and with a variety of delicious toys from perhaps http://www.babeland.com for example. Read Dr. Betty Dodson’s book “Sex for One.” Look in the mirror at least once a day and tell yourself, “I love you.” Do this even when it feels stupid and weird. Do this even when you don’t love yourself. You need to know how to please yourself and how to truly love yourself before you can be comfy with someone else in bed. That’s not to say you’re going to get to some imaginary enlightened place where sexytime is perfection and all is well in the world. But if you’re even considering the possibility that you’re a whore (you’re not), you need to up your self esteem through some self-lovin’. Good luck; you’re gonna do great.
