“…when you have prejudice—which is based on ignorance—there’s a very easy way to combat it: you just be real. You just be who you are. And you just let the contrast between who you are and how you live, and the vicious myths that are being used against people, and they erode.”—Barney Frank
1. Do you every feel like some days you drastically over tumbl? That's me today. 2. It's creepy how much you remind me of a friend here in Australia also named Anna, in sense of humour and appearance and SO many other ways (that it's even possible to tell since I know you only through your blog). 3. Daria brought me to you, (just FYI)... Have a splendid day!
1. All day, every day.
2. I would be so much cooler if I had an Australian accent.
Laurie was the shit! And my great-grandma came over from Ireland through Ellis Islan all by herself when she was just 14 years, she worked hard all her life and was the sweetest woman you could know. My grandma was caring and accepting. If a name is important I think those are great name choices, plus I like the gender swapping nicknames.
Assuming my future wife has no problem with them, I’d name a boy Laurence Christopher (we’d call him Laurie like he was a character in Little Women), and Harriet Christine (we’d call her Harry) after my great-grandma and my grandma’s middle name.
