Judging Partners’ Books

In books, GMail, overheard on my g-chat on March 31, 2008 at 11:57 pm
4:39 PM me: the problem with judging peoples’ book collections is that I have way more books than any guy i date
4:41 PM Ben: i hope i’d never get judged on the basis of my reading
 me: i hope i would!!
4:42 PM Ben: yeah, i think you’d stand up well
  i don’t think i’d make a standard grade
 me: well, i do have this one harold bloom book but its from 9th grade

Eternally Youthful Recommendation:

Fun Nu Internet-majig [AKA: more reasons to dick around on the Job!!]:

Basically, you get to upload up to ten songs [can rotate! will rotate!] to share with all y’all friends.

Here is Mine. Currently the server is overloaded [probs ’cause everyone’s so psyched to not make tapes] but it should be back up by 9 pm tonight. Generally, a lot easier than maintaining a music blog [I am Lazy.]

Inoculate yourself!

In burritos, food on March 27, 2008 at 4:23 pm

I’ve been stricken by the Great Burrito Epidemic of 2008. What does this mean, exactly? Oh, just that my burrito count is at an all-time high [comparable, even, to the two years I spent living next door to the Tenleytown Chipotle], culminating in the following stats:

Saturday: 1, Burritos on Fire

Monday: 1, Boloco

Tuesday: 1, El Pelon

Wednesday: 2, Burritos on Fire & Boloco

Thursday: 1, Boloco

And counting!!!

Unfortunately, the only known vaccines to this heartburning, gut-twisting, bowel-moving disease are:

a] not liking burritos

b] being allergic to delicious foods

c] AKA being a Capital-L Double-O Zed Er L00ZER

d] eating a burrito to sate your cravin’. Side effects may include a full belly and the delicious sting of Tapatio on your lips, as well as laziness and bowel movements.

Thank you.

Is anyone else concerned about the weird pro-life t-shirts?

written with much more gracious words than I would have chosen [those words would make a sailor blush!]. Thanks, Katha Pollitt!

I got quoted by Gawker. I’m #7. Yeah, it was a comment, BUT STILL. And TRUE. Fixie-riders are mostly straight! [and always cute. ;D]

Eternal Youth Post-February Blues Round-Up

In round-ups on March 4, 2008 at 4:26 am

I have a manifesto or two in the works but since I’m PMSing I’m refraining from anything substantive, although I’d be more than happy to discuss primary dysmenorrhea at a later date [such topics as: do I need this or what?], but I am happy to, in brief, gossip-style round-up, tell you some things that have been catching my fancy. After you click ‘Continue Reading>>’:

Today I was petting my cat Tigris/Tigress/Tigerlily [she is six months old and still doesn’t have a definitive name.] and I said to her [because we, you know, talk], ‘Tigris, I don’t think I could ever love any Human the way I love you. Ours is a love that transcends just about Everything.’ Then I thought about it and instead of second-guessing myself, I concluded that it’s true! Cats are way better than people! And [BONUS!] if you ever miss irritating human qualities [because I, at least, sometimes miss really annoying things about people, like how my brother mooned people or how my old roommate stomped very loudly] cats are demanding and aloof enough to sate your cravings for Bad Behavior. Also, making a cat happy is much easier than making a human happy. All you have to do is pet it!

Also, I just played hide-and-go-seek with T-Kitty for 20 minutes. Also, I’m 22 years old.

This post is dedicated to Elizabeth England and Stefanie Gardner, two great humans who think that Annie is going to be a cat lady. -Ed.
