I Love You But...

Can't remember how I found this site, but it's absolutely brilliant.

What, you mean you've never broken up with someone because they've hung their own graduation photo in their apartment, or they bruise easily, or they use the 24-hour clock in conversation?  You weirdo.

My New Kitchen Table and Chairs

This is my new kitchen table and chairs, the purchase of which you may remember me fretting over some weeks back. Wow, if I could rewind my life a little and tell myself to grow a pair and stop fretting over the stupidest things like which kitchen table I want, then that would probably be my best! thing! ever!, but I can't, so I won't, and so here's a picture of my new kitchen table and chairs instead.

How great was this movie?

Wait, what do you mean you haven't seen this movie? Hasn't the incessant buzz about it on the Internet had you covering your ears in surrender yet? Everywhere I went last week, all I heard was Slumdog Millionare this, Slumdog Millionaire that. So finally I was like, alright, fine, it's a random Tuesday night, we are going to gather up our friends, inhale some falafel sandwiches, and go SEE THIS MOVIE ALREADY.

Sprite Zero

Drinking Sprite reminds me of the time I caught some third world parasite in Burma and ended up feeling sicker than I've ever felt in my life. No, scratch that, drinking Sprite reminds me of recovering from that third world parasite---the glorious inching towards feeling slightly better, then slightly better than that, then slightly better than that---and that is why I love Sprite: I never drink it unless I can justify it as the only thing that'll make me feel better.

WE TV

WE TV stands, I believe, for "Women's Entertainment Television" and it is number 502 on my cable box. It is terrible for many, many reasons, and yet it is fantastic for exactly two. What are those two reasons? Well, they are "Bridezillas" and "My Fabulous Wedding." I should know. I have spent a large chunk of my weekend invested in them both.

Sean's Photos From Rome

IMG_3710.full-size.jpg

I think it is fairly obvious that Sean is the one who takes the better holiday snaps in this relationship. That's why I'm marrying him, of course: to escape from a lifetime of photos that are not only blurry but where I also accidentally put my finger over the lens.
