It’s hilarious that non-Americans on Tumblr are all like “OMG DENNY’S TUMBLR MAKES ME WISH I LIVED IN AMERICA SO I COULD EAT THERE,” while us Americans will literally only eat at Dennys if it’s 3 in the morning and we’ve lost control of our life.
You don’t go to Denny’s. You end up at Denny’s.

I feel you. Maybe I should just write ‘free hugs’ on all of my clothes and let strangers hug me. But I feel like that would get real creepy real fast in this city.
im sorry friend finding someone just to hug looks like its going to be even harder than finding justin biebers decency
