What’s worse: graduation, or the year after?

In malaise, overheard on my g-chat, useless degrees on May 25, 2008 at 5:05 pm
12:50 PM me: on a scale of1 to 10, how pathetic is your life if you eat stale peeps [from easter] ?
12:52 PM Rachel: -5
some ppl say they taste better stale
think of it as a delicacy
12:53 PM me: like those hundred-year-eggs that are all the rage in china!
12:54 PM Rachel: YEAH
its kind of like, welcome to high class
So in college you eat stale pizza from out of the garbage, or maybe stale chicken wings that have been left out all day [true stories, both.] and a year after your illustrious graduation wherein you were going to Change The World And Simultaneously Find Thine Self Abroad, you are clearing your impossibly messy [seriously: how do I let this happen?] room of its empty beer bottles and cigarette cartons whilst contemplating your gainful unemployment and ways to make money beyond stimulus packages [oh yeah, your roommate still owes you money from four months ago!!] and eating stale peeps from Easter.
We lead a charmed life, don’t we?
