so-treu: telegantmess: Philadelphia public schools are on the operating table, reeling from a knockout blow of heavy state budget cuts. It was too much to bear after decades of underfunding and mismanagement at the hands of shortsighted Philadelphians and mean-spirited politicians in Harrisburg.

I understand that Brigitte Bardot is hot right now, but she’s a crazy racist bigot. So, swanky film tumblrs and beauty tumblrs and vintage tumblrs, maybe let’s find someone else to worship.
I’m feeling a little slow n lazy on the tumblr front these days. I have a book on tape and I just bought a ton of instant noodles, soooo… I might be MIA for a couple days. In the meantime, friends: tell me about the best summer you’ve had?
