I’m sick of him trying to have it both ways. Are you hurt, you fuck? Then come...– I couldn’t have said this better myself. Drew Magary does not like Brett Favre.
Finally, you might be thinking - the opportunity to watch Puck generally move around and possibly occasionally sing without all those pesky distractions like other Glee characters getting in the way, just in time to tide you over during his (really unnecessary) “stint in juvie,” whatever that is.
bees-knees: tallgirltales Emma Stone’s character is kind of who I wish I’d been in high school. My rebellious, intelligent, feminist bad girl attitude was the fizzle to her bang, I think. Black nailpolish and feminist-lite interpretations of Hamlet, Frankenstein, and most outrageously, Beowulf, were admittedly just annoying. Hindsight is 20/20, friends.
The Ten Most Ridiculous-Sounding Math Classes... →
It was hard to pick just one favorite from this fabulous list of classes I would have loved to take to obtain my “Q” (Quantitative Reasoning) requirement, but I think this one takes the cake, if only because it validates my theory that all good self-important liberal arts college have an intellectual hard-on for Borges. 3. Borges and Mathematics: “Jorge Luis Borges was one of...
When people show you who they are, believe them.– Maya Angelou (via emphasisadded) This is the most important thing I have learned in growing up. This is the difference between being a nice person and being an empathetic person. Don’t just listen; believe.
The two of them are stunning… I really hope they’re dating in real life. Covers like this are the reason I used to subscribe to W. Can I still buy this issue? kaylabirds: ryan gosling [#1 on my top 5 list] & michelle williams [#1 on my fashion crush list] very much looking forward to seeing blue valentine this december. & this cover? too perfect. sweetness.

After coming of age right around the time that the “hipster” phenomenon was debuting in the thrift stores and back alleys behind ironic concert venues in America’s biggest cities (I think it is fair to pinpoint the rise, and subsequent spread, of the hipster into mainstream culture as the time between 2003 and 2006), I’ve come to realize that at this point,...
I don't care where your purse is.
Thoughts: I do not have a place where I like to keep my purse. Does this make me unique, in woman world? What do purses have to do with breast cancer? They can both only be had by ladies? I don’t really think that’s entirely true. Before I understood that this was A Thing that people were doing, I earnestly believed that two of my facebook friends had created Green Eggs and...
Two of my favorite students did not show up for their goalsetting appointments last night. Unlike last year, when I was remonstrated for not effectively communicating information if other people were late or not present, this year, living up to expectations is entirely the responsibility of the individual, so my coworkers expressed sympathy. This was a little overwhelming to me; I spent most of...
an open letter to perez hilton →
scenes-from-my-hood: this is worth the click. it’s a small thing, but i haven’t given perez hilton my traffic since he uttered a homophobic slur as an insult while in a physical altercation with one of the black eyed peas. i love celebrity gossip HARD but this was not a difficult choice. (( via bradley23)) I stopped reading Perez Hilton after he published a headline that said,...
There is an older (probably between 60 and 65) man who teaches a BODYPUMP! class in the Y where I work. Every day before BODYPUMP!, he comes to the Y to work out by himself, in the BODYPUMP! workout studio, which is a huge room with a clear glass window. He lies on his back while lifting a small bar over and over and listens to very intense workout jams with pounding bass, like “Another Night,” by...
It's decorative gourd season, motherfuckers. →
lalalindsay: My favorite McSweeney’s piece ever. The next thing I’m going to do is carve one of the longer gourds into a perfect replica of the Mayflower as a shout-out to our Pilgrim forefathers. Then I’m going to do lines of blow off its hull with a hooker. Why? Because it’s not summer, it’s not winter, and it’s not spring. Grab a calendar and pull your fucking heads out of your asses; it’s...

joyengel: Serena: “It was just so easy in Paris.” Blair: “You were just so easy in Paris.” Plus 2 that their friendship has now progressed to the “when in doubt make a joke about Serena being a whore” phase. I love it when a friendship gets to that phase.
so do you come here all the time?
I seem to run out of things (household products) in cycles - telling, but unfortunate cycles. Exactly a year ago, I made a trip to Walgreen’s to purchase an economy-sized package of toilet paper, a sink scrubbing sponge, and a package of Chore Boy aluminum scrubbers. I know this because I chronicled what turned out to be a somewhat humbling experience in my Moleskin, as any ashamed English...
