Now, beloveds, you might be thinking that the last thing the earth needs is another blog. I agree. There are many things that are much, much nicer than blogs. I can list several, and will:
kittens. the first hot chocolate of the fall. hot baths. hugs. that smell when rain hits hot pavement.
Wow, that was easy. Those are only just a few things nicer than blogs. There are many, many more but I am currently too busy writing to you to list them all. So, after recognizing so many nice things, I ask you “internets? why do we need this blog?” Well, internets, here goes:
We live in grim times, beloveds. All around us, rudeness abounds, people are famous for terrible reasons, and I continue to see women wearing leggings as pants. Leggings. As pants. Furthermore, a culture of violence and fear surround us, and people are constantly putting on their judgey-pants and trying to tell people what nice is for all the wrong reasons. It’s so easy that I just did it. If you are really into wearing leggings as pants, then go ahead and do it, beloveds. You do you.
This blog promises to educate you on what nice is. Recognizing niceness in the world is good for you. Being nice is good for you. I promise, beloveds. Having said that, I will warn you that this blog will not be all about kittens and puppies and beautiful silky unicorns leaping gracefully over rivers made of chocolate. No, no! Sometimes, I will point you toward the beautiful nice things you might be missing. Sometimes, however, I will decree that someone really, really needs a smack upside the head to snap them out of their obviously deep-seeded terribleness. It’s how your professor rolls.
There will be cool features telling you about nice foods or drinkytimes and you might learn things. Important, serious things about how feminism is for everyone, or the absolute mind-blowingly best show available on netflix you haven’t seen yet (It’s Luther, people. Luther.) I occasionally will muse on pop culture and make your mind grapes extra juicy.
Until next time, beloveds,
