- From The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa, translated from the Portuguese by Richard Zenith. (via othersashas)

"I’m sorry," Kyle interrupted me. "I didn’t catch your name."

"Margery." I swallowed. I didn’t want him to associate me with Jeff, whose last name he very likely knew. "Lipinski."

"I can’t remember…Are you on Facebook?"

"Kind of," Jeff admitted. "I only go on every couple of months and randomly thumb up shit to make people feel good about themselves…"
