Chronicle of Higher Exploitation
So let me get this straight. To deal with douchebags on the phone all day (for a nonprofit organization, at that!), you need a bachelor’s degree and a year of experience. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS ECONOMY COUNTRY PICTURE??!!
Let the Anti-Foodie Revolution Begin! →
Jewish Man of My Dreams, Andy Samberg, impersonates Prince William. I died. I am still dying. I will always die, because of this. And Anne Hathaway as Kate Middleton? Just a lot of dying. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1331765/Anne-Hathaway-plays-Kate-Middleton-VERY-racy-Saturday-Night-Live-skit.html
#TwooingFTW: Joel McHale
So I’ve decided to start wooing celebrities via Twitter. I shall call it “Twooing.” Someone probably already made that up, which is fine. For now, minesies!! And if I really feel festive, I will add names. Like tonight, when I decided that Joel McHale is truly a god among men. It all started when Annie and Jeff had a close moment on the latest episode of Community, and an...

I’m OK with Gwyneth calling herself a country music singer. I’m OK with Gwyneth having a “lifestyle blog.” Heck, I’m even OK with Gwyneth having won an Oscar. But I am not OK with Gwyneth getting “Emmy Buzz” for her appearance on Glee singing Cee-lo, the incident I like to refer to as Glee-lo-gate. Folks, there is far too much amazing television out...
The Death Knell to My Childhood has Sounded
It’s official. Prince William and Kate Middleton have announced their engagement. I’m still reeling from the news… I guess now I’ll just have to aspire to be the next Camilla Parker Bowles… shudder. Anyway, we all know Wills is too good for that! How could he do that to Kate, after all his poor mother went through? No, Wills is too good to have a mistress. He...
How to Save Your Own Life
1. Renounce useless guilt. 2. Don’t make a cult of suffering. 3. Live in the Now (or at least the Soon). 4. Always do the things you fear the most; courage is an acquired taste, like caviar. 5. Trust all joy. 6. If the evil eye fixes you in its gaze, look elsewhere. 7. Get ready to be eighty-seven. From How to Save Your Own Life, by Erica Jong. Which is saving my life, right now.
Why All The Interest In Tumblr? Try 1,540 Percent... →
I feel like such a sheep— I joined Tumblr right when it got huge. :D

Since I'm still in my twenties...
… I’m gonna go ahead and get this out of the way. At a rest stop this weekend I saw this: Aaaaaand read this. Because I am ten years old turning 30 in two days. Also, in case you’re wondering how I’ve spent the last days of my twenties, it’s been playing with my gadgets and drinking beer job searching. All day long. Ah, youth. Wasted on the young.
Birthday Weeks are the Best Weeks!!!
So this week is my birthday week!! And it’s a big one. The BIG THREE OH. This weekend I went up to Connecticut to what I thought was a small dinner with my mom, followed by a grandparent visit the next day. We both love staying in hotels, and my grandpa’s health is not so great, so it seemed like a very logical birthday thing to do. Well today I found this highly embarrassing...
Today when I peeked outside and noticed it was raining comme une vache qui pisse, as the charming French expression goes (‘like a peeing cow’), I decided that instead of grocery shopping next door in the rain, I would drive a few blocks to a store with an indoor garage and avoid getting my freshly blow-dried hair all messed up. Lazy? Vain? Not green? Yes, yes, and yes. But such is...
Gratuitous Repost of Old Blogs Wednesday
So as my partner in blog crime and I have recently been reminiscing about the many, many blogs we have left in our wake over the last 6 years or so, I decided it would be fun to repost something from one of my favorites. This blog (which I will not link to because it is a xanga and really, who wants to see that) was a travelog of a trip I took with another friend (whose recent foray into blogging...
Epic Live Blogging/Research Paper Fails
Well, I tried my best to be a super awesome live-blogger from the Rally to Restore Sanity. But posting pics on Tumblr was no easy task, since texts were not even sending. When you unlock an “Epic Swarm Badge” on Foursquare for checking into a place, be ye warned: there be thousands of people in your exact demographic about!! Verizon apparently could not handle the cluster of...
