girlwithaspirin asked: YUM. I just went to the Cozy Corner and had the best blueberry pancakes of my life. Thanks so much for the recommendation... I've driven by the one on Milwaukee a million times and never gave it a second thought. Now it'll be impossible to drive by.
On Tanning for Mental Health
I haven’t been tanning since I was 16 and even then i think I did it only a handful of times. In general I think tanning is pretty gross and bad for you. People that go tanning never look like they have a natural tan, they are tanning bed tan, that weird gross carrot colored tan. I think tanning is just another thing to sell to women that are insecure about their bodies. That said, I...
When you got into my cab i thought you came from a fairy tale.– My cabdriver
When Dean and Greg used to share a wall there were many times when Dean and I would be watching episodes of The Office and we would hear the intro start in Greg’s room as he was watching his own episodes at the same time. It would always make me laugh to hear the intro playing in Greg’s room when Dean and I were in the middle of an episode. I just finished watching a couple of old...
anybody have shitty workplace stories?
kevynryan: sarah i know you got somethin for me. dean? jenny? chris cheung i know you have to. lay em on me. There is a very particular way that you can have a beer spilled down your shirt that enables the beer not only to run down your torso on the inside of your shirt, the beer then procedes to run down the inside of your pant leg. Awesome. I get to feel disgusting, and slightly violated,...
My laundry is done and i also need to go somewhere to get food. Both of these require my going outside and it just started down pouring. Can you carry a laundry basket and an umbrella at the same time? Dilemma.
A+ Day and it's only 1:30
Someone is buying one of my photos today (a stranger!). I’m dropping it off later. And I just scheduled an awesome interview for Wednesday! Sending funny emails to potential employers does work. Need to high five someone asap.
Anonymous asked: Does your level of vanity concern you? I was thinking about vanity this morning, but before I get into that let me answer your question, no. It does not concern me in the least. Does it concern you? You see I have come to a point in my life where I am comfortable in my skin and I understand the ways in which I like to wear it. Am I ego centric? Yes. Do I ever pretend not to...
A Mystery: Why Can't We Walk Straight? : Krulwich... →
nursekate: Try this: Put a blindfold on someone, take them to a park or a beach or a meadow and ask them to walk for as long as they can in a straight line. Then watch what happens… they can’t! So why, when blindfolded, can’t we walk straight? There is still no good answer. Jan Souman, a research scientist in Germany, co-wrote a paper last year about this human tendency to walk in circles. ...

Movie Theater Soda Cup Size
Today (when seeing Harry 7 for the second time) I got a popcorn and soda. The combo I ordered was with a medium soda. I was told i could upgrade to a large for 50 cents and i would also have unlimited refills. I stuck with the medium. Which is a least 1 liter of your choice soda. So large was this soda container that I almost required two hands to hold it. I could mange with one hand, but i...
Irrational Fears I Have
Marble Statues (I’m sure the base of this is from a book that I read as a child where people were turned to stone. While this is slightly embarrassing, I will admit that a part of me still thinks that if marble statues come to life and see me they will assume that I was the one that turned them to stone and be angry.) Fish bigger than my forearm (If they were to attack me I don’t...
Dean: Want to join me for a run?
Dean: I think today is the day.
Me: In that case I think today is the day that i annoy the crap out of you. I'm tired. I'm cold. Is it over yet? My shoulder hurts...etc.
Some people use Sundays to get shit done. Some people watch two movies, don’t get dressed, and knit all day.

His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman: An Ode
I read the first book, The Golden Compass, back in 1997. I was eleven. I was obsessed with it, I had never read anything like it. I specifically remember being curled up in the living room, on the couch, tearing through the last few pages thinking to myself, i don’t know, we’re running out of time. I don’t see how they’re going to wrap this up in the next couple of...

Winter Shower Prep
Waiting for the radiator to kick on so i can have a hot towel when i get out of the shower.
i just passed a guy on the street carrying a bow and a handful of arrows. Logan Square: be on alert.
there is a giant mountain of clean laundry that i want nothing to do with. i’ll just sleep on it.
bluelunchbox asked: What was your favorite part of Paris? My fondest memories are walking and shopping in the tiny streets of Ile. Ste. Marie and the Latin Quarter with a warm baguette or ice cream in hand.
What happened after Dean and I did a power hour last night? Pole dancing to Metallica in a hot dog stand, of course.
