by our approximations: more casper, less denver.

we stumbled upon this image while perusing the january 2011 issue of cosmo.  from an article entitled, “welcome to manland”:

Feel like pickin’s are slim in your town?  Take a weekend getaway to a city where men outnumber women.  Check out the map for the top 10 places where odds are in your favor.  Bonus: Research shows that guys are more eager to put a ring on it in locales where women are scarce.

there’s much that could be said. but we’ll let the Bonus speak for itself.


a short short by guest blogger jennifer love hewitt:

“field dress”

I saw a deer carcass, cut up and hollowed out, in the back of a pickup truck parked on the street. If this had been our deer, dear. We would have cut it up together. We would have made that first incision, and slowly separated the body from itself. We would have opened up its breastplate and scooped its insides out. We would have severed its windpipe, removed its upper organs. Heart, liver, lungs; discarded in a line across the snow like a raw, red necklace. We would have crawled inside its carcass and spent the night in close quarters. Hidden in another creature’s skin. Lost inside the body of a different beast entirely. Because I want you. Because I want to reach across the space between us and pull you to me. I want to throw one leg over your lap and straddle you. I want to prop your chin up, press a kiss into your lips to part them. And in the little black hole that unlocks your insides, I want to set the tip of my breast. I want to feel myself taken up into your mouth. And I want you to let me stay there. To want me. As a body, mostly, pressed against your own. Ripped apart, held together in your hands. But, this was not our deer. And anyway, desire is an irrational thing.
