I Just Overheard a Reunion on the Train
Woman 1: (Sits down) You have a sister, Mona, right?
Woman 2: Yes...
Woman 1: And you have only one brother right?
Woman 2: Yes...
Woman 1: I'm Lisa! I used to live across the street from you! I dated your brother.
Woman 2: Lisa! You had the goats in your basement!
Woman 1: Yes! How is your brother?
Woman 2: He's..
Me: (Bah! Who cares about the brother! Tell me more about these goats living in the basement.)
szzzzlaga asked: I don't have a question but felt it necessary to tell you I LOVE your haircut.
On Going to Paris
First of all holy shit i’m going to Paris! After leaving Europe the first time part of me thought it was possible that I might not get back to that continent in my life time. But here I am leaving for Paris and London in a few days. I come from a family that doesn’t travel. Ever. We would go on day trips to the zoo or something, but we never went on a family vacation. It...

Transcending speculation with systematic scholarship– Just read this in an Amazon book review and thought it was a perfect phrase
Why are there still actual flags in football instead of some sort of digital...– These are the kind of questions you get when i watch sports.
Are you even listening to what i’m saying?– John Stewart to Bill O’Riley

youveescaped-deactivated2011020 asked: Jenny, Jenny, Jenny, I forgot yesterday to tell you how rad your site is. It's so lovely and I'm enjoying peeking into your beautiful photos. Mazel tov on all of your artistic ventures!
fvfarm: There once was a time in life when the football season came to an end, but these days it goes on forever. Every morning during the one hour I listen to radio there are at least 2 football reports. Both say exactly the same thing. I try to imagine how any woman can possibly live with any of these men who report about football. I’m not sure if it has been proved but I firmly believe...

paperbrigade: I’m very excited to announce the release of the new Saharan Gazelle Boy - Strange Teen Heart EP on my label Paper Brigade which is a split… Whoa.

My neighbor is jumping rope
I have decided i will not do to him what my prior neighbors used to do to me. That being ogling and heckling me in Spanish.
Both of these men have iphones

c: how do they hear you?
b: because the headphones have that little microphone on them.
c: i'm gonna have to get some of those!
b: it came with your phone, c.
c: I'm gonna have to find that box!
My eyes are bleeding
from staring at this computer for the last six hours. yay, web design! That was sarcastic, but i am actually excited to reveal the new site, hopefully soon. Time for an HP break (that’s code for Harry Potter).
Bra sizes do not work how you think they do. I am constantly seeing men refer to to the number as if it had something to do with how large your breasts are. Example from Saving Private Ryan: She told me that she was a 46DDD but i had her squeezing into a 42D and she was just spilling out of it. I don’t remember if that is the exact quote, but it does matter. While this would, infact,...
Harry Potter is Modern Crack
I just finished book 4 in three days. There is no way i’m reading anything else until i’ve completed the series. I think should be able to finish 5, 6, and 7 in two weeks if i continue at this pace. That leaves me one week to read the Tumblr Book Club book for this month. On to Book 5…
