Todd: See you tomorrow.
Leah: Not if you're lucky.
I’m sure that I’m supposed to have had some kind of REALIZATION after having sat two days in the dark with limited ties to the world, but I mostly hated it and am glad it’s over. I can’t believe people pay to have these kinds of experiences.
This much I can say
I was pretty blasé about this all until the power started flickering last night and then I got scared. My parents may be without power for days. Luckily(?) my mom is back in the hospital, so we don’t have to worry about her oxygen supply. All you New Yorkers bitching about how you’re totally over this? You’re all cunts.

At dinner (AT HOULIHAN’S 4 REAL SUBURBS, GOD/it was pretty good?) with my parents on Saturday night, I unwittingly outed myself as a defeatist. At least I think it was defeatism. I don’t really know? I went on a 90 minute tirade about how I’m burnt out because I read too much internet. Then it kind of veered into something about hating baby boomers and also that I see a second US...

I hauled myself and my neck brace to the theater this evening and saw Miranda July’s “The Future.” I don’t know that it’s a movie to like, so much as it is a movie to appreciate.

But I'd really rather talk about Louie
John: maybe you should not mention/engage in conversation re: Mad Men until at least the third date
John: otherwise they'll just think you're easy ;)
Leah: it's a show lots of people watch!
Leah: it's something to talk about
John: and sex is a thing a lot of people do
Leah: some more than others
John: but people still have daft rule about how many dates you're supposed to have before you do that
John: so why not institute a rule about mad men and forget the one about sex?
Leah: i'd probably rather talk about mad men than have sex
Leah: but point taken
Further thoughts on Louie
Tonight’s second episode “Eddie” helped crystalize my thoughts on this show. It’s not a comedy — despite being classified as such. It’s unclassifiable! It’s not tragicomic. It’s surreal. It’s a drama that happens to star a very funny man, maybe. And unlike other shows, drama or comedy alike, here is a guy who just… wants to be better,...

It’s everything! It’s his facial expressions! It’s that every episode is… ART.
