I love Instagram. I am also terrible at posting to Instagram. 


I have #rbf to the extreme, which makes selfies basically impossible. But if there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s captioning posts. Why? 

Well, besides my dry and glittering sense of humor, I also have a near-encyclopedic memory when it comes to obscure movie/TV quotes and song lyrics, and my Pinterest game is strong. 

To that end, here is a guide to the Insta captions I’ve loved, or can’t wait to use, organized by category for easy reference (and with a few of my own posts scattered throughout — full permission granted to Insta-stalk me @vamp1reslayr)
