I firmly believe there’s not a person in this world (myself included) who wants to hear my voice before 7:45 am — and yet everyday I witness people having extended personal phone calls very early in the morning.
When I first got my Blackberry for work, I tried to make things happen by touching the screen, but nothing did because it doesn’t even have a touchscreen. Either iPhones make you stupid and lazy, or I’m just too dumb to use a Blackberry.
“The “Male Genital Mutilation Bill” garnered the more than 7,000 signatures needed to get on the ballot in November. Lloyd Schofield, director of the San Francisco office of the MGM Bill organization, aired his grievances with circumcision in a heated discussion with celebrity rabbi Shmuley Boteach on CNN last month.”—
In that Seinfeld episode where the Chinese food guy won’t deliver to Elaine, how did she get the menu? She’s clearly never been to the restaurant and the most logical explanation would be that the menu got slipped under her door — indicating that the restaurant had, in fact, delivered to her building!
“You need to get to a place where watching TV alone in bed doesn’t provide you with such a sense of relief. You need to get to a point where being by yourself isn’t your idea of a great time. Being most at ease when you’re eating a microwavable burrito and watching Netflix Instant is so #dark and not who you are at all.”—
“The Little America chain of hotels consists of 4 hotels in the western United States. The very first Little America, called Little America Wyoming, is 24 miles (39 km) west of Green River, Wyoming, and 35 miles (56 km) west of Rock Springs, Wyoming on Interstate 80. Built in 1934, the property began with 12 guest rooms, 2 gas pumps, and a 24 seat café. Today the location has 140 rooms, and expanded gas pumps for both truck drivers and travelers. For a number of years this location boasted of having the world’s largest filling station, based on the number of pumps in operation.”—
“Is Glee all you can think about as you drive home from your job in HR and pick up dinner at Applebee’s (“Paradise Chicken Salad to go please,” is the world’s saddest sentence) and watch the sky go from gray dusk to dark, lonely night?”—
I guess I’ve reached the point in my life where I go to Trader Joe’s and wander around until I finally end up buying frozen shrimp and a bag of oranges (and only frozen shrimp and a bag of oranges) and then go home and hang out in my underwear? This is an acceptable phase, right?
“In 1990, after winning an important rap battle, he meets Kim Jones (Naturi Naughton) for the first time. Kim is attracted to Christopher instantly and they later have sex in her apartment. The scene is really eplicit. However, Kim is afraid to start a new relationship because of a past relationship when she was abused. Biggie assures her that he won’t break her heart and they begin dating (even though he is dating Jan also). Prior to this, Christopher’s mother, Voletta (Angela Bassett), throws him out of the house after discovering his involvement with drugs and his getting-ready to be a father.”—Notorious (2009 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
So Dahlia and I went to the Best Coast/Decemberists concert at the Academy of Music tonight. The Decemberists are wonderful live (something I already knew) and their fans are very white! Maybe whiter than Belle & Sebastian? Or at least the same level of whiteness.
But Best Coast… I mean, no. I was once fairly indifferent to them, but if you can’t work the acoustics in the Academy of Music, you’re doing something very, very wrong.
