But I do feel bad for Jeremy. Here is this bright young kid, pouring his heart into something he loved for zero gain (except community) and tumblr, a company that ought to reward ingenuity, I mean, a company that basically hired topherchris to be a dork (I say that in a loving way) on the internet full time, is crushing his spirit harder than the man.
“Maybe she doesn’t have anything better to do than call a bunch of people to discuss something that doesn’t need to be discussed, but *I* do. Like reading tumblr and watching Doctor Who.”—[redacted] in response to [redacted]
I was in LA during a 6.9 earthquake and this was MUCH scarier. I was on the 3rd floor of my old brick school building. The shaking built and built while I went from, “What is going on?” to “Oh, we are having an earthquake.” to “Why the fuck is it still getting worse?” to “Oh my god, maybe it isn’t an earthquake, maybe the building is actually collapsing, we are all going to die.”
I was surprised that my all consuming thought was how I was going to get to Sylvia. Luckily I called the babysitter as soon as the shaking stopped so I was still able to get through and hear that they were fine. After that I couldn’t get through to anyone. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that I thought of my daughter first, but it was such an intense fear for her saftey that I was taken off guard.
