Title of a 1938 NYT article: ”An Informal Portrait Of John L. Lewis :The World’s Most Discussed Labor Leader In a Racy Narrative Written by a Washington Newspaper Man.”
Sometimes at work, when it’s slow and very few others are around, I sing out loud and dance a little. And I sing along to the songs that I hear over and over again without really registering the lyrics, but merely find them catchy and dancy. Usually it’s innocent enough, but this evening I realized I was singing along to a song about S&M. Hello, the childcare manager at the...
fuck that, now i feel better
Unexpectedly extended deadlines are fantastic. Hooray for the laziness of others!

This might be too much information but I feel as though the lower half of my body has been running a marathon and also like someone has been punching my boobs all night. Also this is the second day of it. So I’m crabby as hell.
Back when I was a wee teen of fourteen or fifteen, and the song TubThumping was exceedingly popular and on the radio every five minutes, I had a friend who insisted there was a subtle Britishism in the lyrics that the rest of us in her social group were not sophisticated enough to know. When the chorus goes “I sing the songs that remind me of the good times/I sing the songs that remind me...

“A Wintery Mix.” Fucking winter. Fucking Midwest. Grumble grumble grouse.
thanks, the social network, for getting me on this
Blame the fact that this movie introduced me to the fact that there are such people as the Winklevoss twins, but i cannot stop making up names for a fake Peerage: Ronald Effingham Twigbottom the Second. Chauncy Wemblton Higglesworth the Fifth, Reginald Quincy Foffenbottem Lady Dorcas Eleanor Cheesebrow, daughter of Barrington Wadswinkle Cheesebrow the fourth.
a lesson in etiquette
Only when your friend is 9 months pregnant and due at any moment is it appropriate to respond to a text that says “I’m at the hospital” with the utterance “YAY!!!” Saying that at any other time may seem callous. Anywho. My friend is totally having her baby today. :-D
also, happy st patrick's day
My place of employ happens to be across the street from a HUGE Irish bar in St. Paul. I’ll be at work today well into the evening. Having already been out this morning in public, I gotta say — the douche-chill quotient is going to be way, way high. Like, off the charts.
I’m at work right now, but i’ve rolled up my pant’s legs, taken off my shoes, and replaced my normal chair with a large Pilates ball, and am gently bouncing up and down as I type and work. As I’m the only one here except for the Spinning instructor, I feel that this is acceptable behavior. It’s forecasted to be over 50 degrees the rest of the week, with days of...
he is walking funny, though.
“Your cat may feel drowsy and sleepy the evening after his surgery.” Yeah. First thing he did after I let him out of his carrier was find a toy, carry it around, and prance around in little, ecstatic circles. Drowsy my ass.
me: i will say this. i am afraid that come the day of judgment, whoever judges...– Ah, yes, the great Narwhal debate. It never will end, not even when this friend has her baby. Then I will be even more adamant about this subject, because I don’t want that kid going to school with crazy stories about sea unicorns. If I can just brag about knocking something off my bucket...

Oh, and what’s that? My birthday follows in May?
I'm torn on this →
Because it IS one of my pet peeves. I get major-major annoyed when people repeatedly (not just once) answer texts when we’re having a conversation or in a group of friends. My best friend definitely went through this phase when she was dating her now-husband, to the point where I actually started saying, “I don’t feel like you want to hang out with me anymore.” It was a...
i want you to do me a favor
I’ve had… a difficult couple of weeks. And I can’t explain why. All I can say is that it made me rethink my ideas of good and evil. Also, made me realize that I can be strong for someone else in terrifying situations, so that’s good to know. Ok, so here’s what you need to do. You need to turn to someone who you love or care about or generally agree with but who...
