Surely it is safer to operate with laughter than with solemnly rebellious speeches.
It is the safer of two unsafe ways.

My system for clothes was and still is kind of low-maintenance. I don’t use drawers or a closet or anything like that. Usually, I have a room and in the room is a chair and on the chair is a giant pile. I select things from the top of the pile and ignore the bottom, a kind of no man’s land where clothes go to experience extreme sun deprivation, psychological trauma and the most rewarding loneliness of their existence, coming up in the process with alternative life philosophies detached from the social norm. Eventually I go insane from wearing the same things all the time, so I grab a bunch of clothes and throw them on the bed and then shout at them something like, “What do you want me to wear?” Destroying the pile makes me rediscover items of clothing I had forgotten about. The feeling is the same as having new clothes, except cheaper.

Someone’s telling the truth in Jezebel comments…

The English language needs a word for that feeling you get when you badly need help, but there is no one who you can call because you’re not popular enough to have friends, not rich enough to have employees, and not powerful enough to have lackeys. It’s a very distinct cocktail of impotence, loneliness and a sudden stark assessment of your non-worth to society.


David Wong- This Book is Full of Spiders (via jhonenv)

Cannot say enough good things about this book.

WSJ=The Onion in what is (hopefully, but probably not) excellent April Fool’s Day satire.


Last night I had this dream that my sister and I were on a mission and had to go find Kanye West and Usher. Apparently they were on trial for killing some kids and we had to split up and find them. My sister and I split up and I went to look for Kanye. I went into our (apartment?) bathroom and Kim Kardashian was in the shower. I started putting in my contacts and she started asking if I had seen Kanye.

Alarm went off before I could answer.

Lot to unpack here, sib.

Also: you were in my dream last night; it was mainly about me having a messy bedroom—think centipedes and moldy food—and messing yours up too (slightly!). You were annoyed.


Aldous, high as a kite after getting his teeth cleaned.

From the hilariously titled United Steaks of America.

To be fair, Brunswick stew, the squirreliest of stews, was invented in Virginia (though NC and GA dispute this). Also, the Mississippi Fish and Wildlife foundation offers a delightful list of squirrel-cepies.


The men and women, and the children too, whose voices join in noble harmony with Plaintiffs today, also ask for fairness, and fairness only. This, so far as it is in this Court’s power, they and all others shall have.

Our office kitchen/break room is small, but chock full of passive aggressive notes.
