I hate refillable water bottles. I can never drink out of them without dribbling. I think it’s the width of the mouth of the bottle. Also it’s possible I’m a dork.

I’m reasonably certain you didn’t mean that the way it came across, but yeah. And so the Mister sent me this, because funny.

Oh my God. Go home, Ted Cruz.

It’s always an “activist court” when you disagree with the ruling, regardless of which side you’re sitting on.

OK, it’s not that I hate Captain Janeway so much as I hate Kate Mulgrew.

You are: 0% Hippie You are soooo not a hippie, and to be honest, you really don’t see the appeal. You like showering regularly and enjoying the convince of modern life. Attending a multi-day music festival with jam bands and hallucinogens is your definition of hell. You like things clean and organized and you like having access to private bathrooms. And why would someone want to purposely have hair so dirty that it clumps together into dreads?

The convince of modern life? OK. But yeah, that’s pretty much right on.

I want to know who put me on Ted Cruz’s mailing list. So I can punch you.

The best comment I’ve seen about this photo: “It’s like a sociopath detector.”

I just think it’s weird when Canadians start expressing their opinions on the American political system, as if they had intimate knowledge of what it’s like to live in a Constitutional Republic. I certainly don’t go around talking about how I think Canadia should run itself.

I’m always thoroughly convinced for a good minute that they’re planning to abduct me and take me off to a re-education camp. I know, it’s hilarious, but I’m totally serious.

MATH: The Final Exam

Huh. I watched this movie and have absolutely no memory of Nicolas Cage in it at all. And he was the lead.

I don’t know. I just have some issues with endorsing that big a pile of bullshit.

There is only so much dumb a girl can take, really.

I honestly cannot decide if I like Glen Hansard or not.

After listening to whatever the hell that was I’m thinking not.

Sometimes I care so little about a subject that even when I am required to provide an opinion, I’m stumped. I do not care. I cannot even begin to formulate a response. I got nothin’. Total blank.  That’s pretty much my university experience summed up, right there.

Speaking of. I hope my head will cooperate with TWAW night. There is nothing worse than shooting with a migraine. Nothing. Not even child birth. I had a migraine when I qualified for my CPL. It was horrific. 90 some degrees, literally dripping with sweat, and my head in total agony. I’m just glad I didn’t vomit.

I tried to watch the season premier of Hannibal the other night. Usually that show is like a sedative to me. I just kept thinking, “Wait. How is this on network television??” The muted colors, the composition of the scenes, reminds me of old Kodachrome slides and color prints of my grandparents and their homes and travels in the 50s and 60s. Some of it is indeed, visually, stunning. (I had not noticed in my viewing, the crust of the pot pie and how it echoed the mask that Will is made to wear, the one we traditionally think of as the Hannibal mask.) I have issues with the stories though.

Democrats hate your guts and think you’re racist.

You’re even cool with gay people, and praise their service in the military.

I was getting dressed this morning, thinking, “Well, normally I’d wear those blue canvas ballet flats, but I think I’m going to be bold and wear these red sandals because I am too much with the monochromatic all the time.” I’m not even kidding. That was the voice in my head yammering about shoes. And throwing the red bracelet in with the two blue to bring it all together. Honestly, it’s like I don’t even know myself any more.

I didn’t know Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger ever even were a couple.

Wow, I really don’t think people need a therapy session after dealing with me. I think that might be taking it a bit far.

Of course I was right. I’m always right.

Apparently I never watched the last two seasons of Gilmore Girls the first time around. I have to say, I’m totally pissed that Lorelai married Christopher.

Also, and I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before, but I think it’s kind of lame that Lauren Graham was basically just Lorelai Gilmore all over again in Parenthood. I mean come on. They are the same character. They didn’t even give Lauren Graham a chance to prove that she can actually act. Of course, maybe she can’t. How would I know? She spent 14 seasons playing the same woman.

So by “I don’t wanna hurt ya!” you really mean “I don’t wanna get my ass kicked by a little girl!” Right?

So. I’m not a writer. I’m not a photographer. I’m an academic.

No. I’m sorry. That can’t possibly be right. It’s sort of nauseating.

I’m so completely jealous of both of you right now. le sigh

I had never heard of this chick before, but I kinda dig her.

I’m sorry but this is just straight up a stupid math problem. Seriously.

Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful.

Damn. I wish I still had some iced tea.

Damn. I wish I didn’t have to stop at Wal-Mart.

Damn. I wish I was your lover.

Just kidding.

Why is it so dark in here?

My head is really starting to hurt. I’m pretty sure Wal-Mart is not going to help with that.

C-Span2 needs an Instagram account.

Damn, I love a Rand Paul filibuster.

I did not even know that that was my problem until I read that thing. Damn.

I cannot remember the last time I felt this disorganized. It’s making me nutty.

I really really really love this skirt.

I got a lotta Damn in me today. Apparently.


Perspicacious. I like that word.

Well we can obviously grow delicious asparagus in our yard. Maybe we should become asparagus farmers.


Stormagegm n2r1`ew

Stormageddon had to get in on Random. So there you go.


Of course now he won’t stop …

I’m cold. And also tired. Very very tired.

Just take your damn hat off.

Well. You got yourself a new photographer. Ok then.

I remember. I remember. Didn’t we go to the zoo that day? All my crayons melted in the back window inside my bag. That was a brand new box of crayons. I was so sad. But the melted wax was awful neat. I didn’t know that would happen. I didn’t know.

I remember.

I’m pretty sure that’s a girl bike.

But it’s a jungle out there.

Random Wednesday

i just wanna be the center of your world, babyI’m really bad at this posting anything other than Random thing.

I’ve always had a fondness for Sally Mann. I never understood the criticism of her photos of her children.

Oooh! I am intrigued!

Listen. Don’t tell my boyfriend, Paul Westerberg, but I think the National might have just about edged out the Replacements as my all time favorite band ever.

I’m terrifying.

I don’t want anybody else. I don’t want anybody else.

Um. How did I not know that my boyfriend Paul Westerberg got divorced last year? Paul? What is that about? Call me.

Aw man. So many tears.

Does it bother anyone else that there is an apostrophe in the Gogo’s?

It’s a picture of shoes with the words “shop bags” written across it. OK then.

whatever whatever

Well. Apparently ONE is the number of books I can cram into my week between semesters.

I like pizza, Steve.

“Oh my God!”
“Priscilla Presley’s face!”
“She’s had some work done, Jen. … By the same guy that did the Joker.”

What is it with these people and their crushed ice?


I feel like I should have read Less Than Zero at some point in my life.

What!? Hells yeah!

“You know I love a good crime show, and I can’t concentrate on political theory if you’re going to binge watch Unsolved Mysteries.”

Feelz before Realz, yo.

27% Unconscionable is a word I heard in reference. I think that’s entirely accurate. 27% is absurd.

Why does it smell like an old, damp dishrag in here??

Phrases are great for passwords but I keep mixing up my phrases.

I don’t think I have had enough protein today.

I think someone needs this knitted for them. But not in that yarn.

“the interest of freedom is a virgin, that everyone seeks to deflower.”

Seth is HIGH

Seriously, why do people continue to use Craigslist?

I am very much looking forward to this one. Guillermo Del Toro is one of the very few filmmakers today who can truly weird me the hell out.

“Do you want a rice cake?”
“I don’t know. Do you want a punch in the throat?”


It’s supposed to warm back up tomorrow. I’ll be able to wear a skirt. yay! Although I do like these pants. They’re so comfy.

ARGh. These arrow post it thingies are useless. They are not sticking. I’m going to be forced to use highlighters. I never use highlighters.

Wow, Red. You’re on a roll today.

everything is creepin’ in and i’ve been sailing so long i’ve become the shore and don’t you know don’t you know don’t you know

Um. AK47 grenades. Guys. That’s a satire site. Calm down.

I could go on at length about how much I loathe jury duty. But I won’t, because this is probably more entertaining.

I did read American Psycho, though. Before there was a movie even. So there’s that.

Aw neat! I am so not that momma one. With the academics.

didn’t anybody tell you?

I’m still pretty sure I need a Guns ‘n’ Roses tee shirt.

Dammit! My button popped off my pants! The only thing holding these puppies up is the sheer force of my will.

Why don’t people just farm Morels?

I did not realize today was the anniversary.

There is just no end to the ridiculous.

Am I still here?

Sheesh. I’ve sent about twelvety questions out to various people via the interwebs and no one is responding. I am invisible and weightless.

There will be a test!

I have no idea what I did with that schedule. I have no idea who is working in the morning. I have no idea what’s going on!

I’m so ready for sleep.

Ooooooh! I get to test knit Annie’s new shawl design! Yay!!!

This made me el oh el.
