So I’m awake right now. This is a new thing. In the last couple weeks I’ve been waking up sometime around 3:00 - 5:00 just wide awake. When I was little I was an insomniac for years. I’m hoping this is not a new period of the same. Luckily - unlike when you are 11 - when you are 25 you can just get out of bed and have some Tostito’s Hint of Lime chips while you ramble...
On Internet Doodles
For anyone doing illustrations out there. I would appreciate it from now on if you’re going to post your cute/awesome/funny/beautiful doodles on the internet that you also have a print version available for me to buy. Or at least to bookmark to buy later. Thanks in advance for accommodating this.
Dean: I have Sunday off.
Me: Oh, nice. We can watch the superbowl together.
Dean: Are you being sarcastic?
Applying for Jobs Tip #67
When adjusting your cover letter for the 107th time don’t forget to change key words like, “magazine” to “firm” This will almost certainly ensure that you do not get the job.
whoa holy crap
this might be the best thing that I saw today. lau-ra-sau-rus: Go to google and type in “Do a barrel roll”, but do it quickly. Google, I love you.
Midnight in Paris - Really?
The following should be noted before continuing: I love Woody Allen. I love that he made a movie in Paris. I liked all the cameos in the movie. I wanted to like it so much, I saw it in the theater twice. Watching Midnight in Paris the second time through was painful. All of the cameo scenes are fun to watch (Adrian Brody was incredible!), but I thought the two main characters were some of...

Dean: There's a spelling bee at a bar nearby on the 6th.
Me: Are you going to be in it?

On Subletting #2
Seriously what the fuck is our neighbor’s deal? So much yelling. Everyday. Some options we’ve debated: crazy wife hater/abuser some kind of mental problem One thing that is certain is it’s really annoying. We aren’t positive that there is a wife/someone that he’s yelling at because we never hear anyone respond. It’s very unsettling to be watching the...
ppepperr asked: OH WAIT BURNING QUESTION: Does that de-piller contraption you bought online work at all? My clothes are all sad and I need help but no one I know except you has ever used one of those things. Thoughts? Praises? Scathing product reviews?
mynameisbrian asked: What's the best thing New York has that Chicago doesn't? What's the best thing we have that New York doesn't?
ppepperr asked: This isn't a question, I just wanted to say every time I see Portrait of a Lady on my shelf I think of you and my brain says to me, "Jenny would be so disappointed in you that you can't finish this book." Oh, the internet. Sigh. Anyways, let me ask a question so this post is sufficiently distracting! What has made you feel the most New York so far and why?
lauren asked: Also, what kind of job are you looking for?
lauren asked: 3 favourite things about living in New York.
Distract me from job hunting with questions.
On Subletting #1
This is hardly a sound proof apartment. But it could be worse. There is either a small child or a large-ish dog that lives above that likes to run back and forth the length of the apartment for 15 min at a time. You can hear the TV next door, but you can’t quite make out the words. And there is an adult male that likes to yell one phrase over and over. Yesterday’s was, “Are...

2011: More of a Reflection than a Recap
Pretty good. Worked as a photo editor for a large portion of the year. Decided that I love that. Worked as furniture designer’s assistant for awhile. Decided I love that too. Some good friends became great friends. I did a LOT of karaoke. Didn’t read as many books as years past, but I did read some great ones. Met a lot of great people. Incredible people. The kind of people...
