Confession: I think you're hot
"Brian wants to be your friend on Google Latitude"
me: What is this?
Brian: Google Maps for your phone location. So I know where you are at all times. DUN DUN DUNNNN
me: OH OK, THIS IS CLEARLY WHAT THIS RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN MISSING.
Brian: This way I can map your whining in real time.
Creativity is a funny thing.
I would say that by most standards, I’m considered fairly creative. I don’t feel very creative any more though. I’d like to be, but I find that I mostly think any and all ideas I have have been done or are so incredibly trite that literally every person has had that idea already and quickly and quietly moved past it. The thing I miss about college lately is being forced to get my...

I had no idea he passed away this weekend. I had no idea he was sick. “On Language” is one of my favorites on a Sunday, and it makes me sad that page will never be filled with his words again. via NYT

The fact that any money and time was spent trying to prove such a totally fucking obvious statement is mind-blowingly stupid.
indefensible: Here’s an exercise for you. Find a Youtube clip of Chris Noth as Big from Sex and the City. Play it with your eyes closed. Now, picture Jon Hamm as Don Draper in Mad Men. Um, I tried this exercise and now my pants are off. For the record, both characters have always had this effect on me. Meaning that I am a huge slut for fictional men.
"Your sister is pretty" means I hear "You are not"
I don’t know why this is. I think she IS pretty, in fact prettier than me. Which is funny, because people ask us if we’re twins a lot. But mostly, this brings up a huge issue I’m having lately, about my self-worth being tied to my appearance and my perception of my appearance; coupled with a need for external validation. It’s nice to hear nice things, but it annoys more...
I'm going to Boston this weekend with my sister....
No, seriously. You don’t understand. My sister is totally awesome and cool and fun. YAY WEEKEND AWAY AND YAY BOSTON!
iPhone scans UPC codes, which is pretty badass.
True story. Once I got a haircut and the ensuing...
OMG JON ZUHL I LOVE YOU.
Thanks! (I am really, really excited. Also, why was I unable to think of this!)
OK. I KNOW THIS IS PRETTY FUCKING MINOR.
But I wish that when you were naming layers in Photoshop there was spellcheck. Also, that apple+a worked. OH GOD THIS IS WHY I’M GOING TO DIE ALONE. (I can’t even have cats. I’m allergic.)
Hey fuckers, I finally watched House.
No one said they used a James Hunter song. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!
Failures in passive-aggression:
- waiting an hour to respond - not using a exclamation point - withholding a star

For example, I am fairly insecure; but seem mask that with seeming confident most of the time. When taking this test about your brain and gender, when forced to answer questions about myself, I scored a mere 8 out of 20 for my ability to empathize. When asked to pair an emotion with a pair of eyes, I scored a 7 out of 10. “Your result suggests you are a good empathiser, sensitive to...
The look on their faces was bemused at best.
My uncle: We're going to start tailgating at like 8a before the West Point game.
me: Ugh. We better have mimosas.
My dad: No. Bloody Mary's.
me: Ok, that's fine too. I'll make scones!
This really happened on Saturday.
me: What are you talking about?
him: I was telling Kris something dirty.
me: Was it about my cardigan?
This weekend was insane.
I don’t even know who I am anymore and I kind of love it.
A Powerpoint slide is not a design specification.
everythinginthesky: Not, but seriously: you should need a license to use Photoshop or Powerpoint to design a product and anyone caught Designing Under The Influence Of Just Being An Ideas Man should be dragged into the street and shot in the throat. Also, Photoshop should come with a disclaimer: “Just because the software can enable you to do something, doesn’t mean it’s a good...
Well, things are certainly different.
I was looking through pictures on my computer just now while waiting for my file to save, and I saw a picture of my grandmother and it made my entire chest hurt. Last Fourth of July: - I had a boyfriend. - My grandmother was alive and healthy. - I weighed 25lbs more. 2009 is turning out to be one of those years where everything gets knocked upside down.
Seriously, there’s so much creepy goodness inside this video. thedailywhat: [via.]
MY INAPPROPRIATE USE OF CAPS IS ALL YOUR FAULT.
I should have known better.
Dear Client, Thanks for the heads up that the work I’ve been doing might change yet again. This was totally amazing, since I had flattened those layers a few days ago. I’ve spent this morning trying to match colors on a not perfectly calibrated monitor when I could have just applied those lovely adjustment layers again. I love being the person that the information pertains to, but am...
I know I should stay in and do work.
But fuck it, am going out anyway.
This morning it was brought to my attention that this term might not be common-knowledge , and is kind of specific to the North-east. Is this true, or was my friend just being dumb?

I ran 3.5 miles tonight.
Which isn’t really a big deal. But I haven’t been running in a few weeks. I’ve been busy, mostly making excuses. Work’s been insane. I’ve been going out. I’ve spent time with my family. Before I even finished the first half-mile, my knee started to hurt. I could feel blisters forming. I thought my heart was going to burst. I kept going. Things I’ve been...

I hardly ever wear shoes when I cook.
me: Can you take out the trash? It's full. That's a boy job. I don't care if that makes me sexist.
15 yo cousin: Sure. I don't care. As long as you keep cooking.
