This is a bit of an off-the-cuff true (read: boring) story about how I accidentally got high on painkillers and drove through the backwoods of Iowa. I am aware of the sheer volume of bad decisions going on here. After two hours of sleep, I wake up for my trip to Quincy, Illinois with menstrual cramps that have been hand-delivered by Satan’s asshole, specially packaged in gentle nausea. I...
I feel like
someone has forcibly removed the organs from the lower third of my torso and replaced them with an angry weasel who, after finishing a batch of bad yogurt, has resigned himself to being kicked repeatedly by a large man in steel-toed boots with an anti-weasel bent. My uterus just sits on the sidelines, laughing and laughing. What I’m saying is: I love you, prescription painkillers. What...
Not a dream post.
I have crazy, vivid and often scary dreams most nights, but I can usually shake them within a few hours of waking up. Last night’s I haven’t been able to shake. It had a lot of familiar scenes and ideas - my high school, me screaming at someone or something, being in a car on a bridge and not being able to control it, my parents dying, being back in London, grocery shopping, all that...
no shit. →
inkdot: This weekend I was told a story which, although I’m kind of ashamed to admit it, because holy shit is it ever obvious, is kind of blowing my mind. A friend of a friend won a free consultation with Clinton Kelly of What Not To Wear, and she was very excited, because she has a plus-size body, and…

Deep personal truths.
I have never not laughed at someone acting like a robot.
I still watch Conan every night and I still love...
Jon Ronson: I think you're not a psychopath, Conan.
Conan O'Brien: That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me.
I am possibly the grossest ever.
You know when you run really hard and you’re sweating several fountains and you finally get to take a shower and you’re all oh sweet cleanliness I have missed you so and then you get out of the shower and dry off and get dressed and then half an hour later you’re thinking ugh, why is my face wet, it’s not steamy in h- and then you realize that you’re still sweating?...
I don't even
I’ve been saving up for an iPhone 5 (September release pretty please - I still have a 3G) and I don’t buy jeans unless they’re on sale for under $40. I buy all of my books used and I debated for a week with myself about keeping Netflix’s DVD service after the price hike. What in the gorilla fuck do I do with this. It’s like they gave me the Constitution. WHAT IF I...
Let’s imagine that I’m the most over-priveledged spoiled brat ever and my parents surprised me with an iPad 2 as a 22nd birthday/late graduation present and now I’m sitting here like oh my God what do I even do on this thing besides read books and play Solitaire and laugh at the proletariat? If that were true, what apps and/or accessories and/or other stuff would you recommend I...

If you don’t watch The Closer, you are seriously missing out.
External hard drives.
I’d like to start backing up my MacBook Pro (only took me 3 years to get around to it) so I’m thinking I’ll ask for another external hard drive for my birthday and set up Time Machine to back up to it. I keep some large files (movies downloaded with the utmost legality) in a 400GB WD My Passport that I got in 2008. I really don’t like it. It’s pretty...
Things. No, iPhone, not "thongs." Not now, at...
1. My computer is yet again refusing to acknowledge the existence of the Internet. I hate typing out long posts on my phone, but at least I get to experience the wonders of a functioning 2 key. Ups, downs. 2. Aw yeah. Look at that 2. 3. I just did W3D3 of C25K. On Tuesday, I do W4D1. That will be the farthest I have ever gotten in the program without quitting. The trick for me, it seems, is...
Dad: They have forests in Poland?
Me: Yeah. They have lots of things in Poland. Even people.
Mom: More vowels than people. They're hoarding all the vowels.
My computer is being a wimp and I hate using Tumblr on my phone (I wrote “face” there at first. I hate using Tumblr on my face.) So, it’s a Tumblr break for me until things fix themselves. I read a whole book yesterday. This is all very disturbing. I’m running out of episodes of The Mentalist. I keep… exercising. Ugh.
Goddamn it, I think I like The Mentalist.
Cho: Why would anyone date a jockey? Be with a little guy. Smells like horses.
Rigsby: You don't like horses?
Cho: They're like dogs, but bigger.
Rigsby: You don't like dogs?
Cho: It's all an act with dogs. They do it for the food.
Rigsby: Everybody does.
Cho: That's deep.
"Do I dare to eat a peach?"
Fuck yes I do, I’ve been eating like 4 a day, these motherfuckers are perfectly ripe, it’s like biting into perfection and dripping glory all over yourself.
