I’ve just discovered that people dislike me enough to quote a really unfortunately twee passage I wrote out of context and to add that it is the “worst thing ever ever ever ever”. Whatever, you didn’t have to read it.
I refuse to be sick this week.
I feel a cold coming on, guys. There’s a scratchy stickiness in my throat and a tickle in my nose. I am trying not to panic. I have been salt-water gargling, vitamin popping, AirShield swilling and hot green tea sipping all morning. I will purchase zinc lozenges during lunch. I will squelch this nightmare. Here are some reasons why I can’t deal with a cold right now: I am flying to...
Ordered my fancy business cards
Most of them have my headshot and look sweet and professional. But about seven of them have a photo of me as Poison Ivy strangling Batman.
After work plans?
Getting drunk with Meredith aka THE BEST PLAN EVER.
A tiny bit of a milestone just happened.
Next week is my final Level 5 class at the PIT. I will be missing it because I will be on a plane to Los Angeles. That means that last night was my last improv class at the PIT. Sure, I might do workshops in the future, but I’ve completed all of the levels. This is really cool for me. I’ve studied improv on and off for 9 years. I’ve taken classes at ImprovBoston, ImprovAsylum,...
Ladies, this is what happens when you wear a...
Guy at the PIT bar: Whoa. I like your shirt.
Me: Oh, thanks.
Guy: You should be careful wearing a shirt like that in public. Because...you know...guys... But it's okay. I get it, because I work at Marvel.
Me: Oh, cool. What do you do?
Guy: I'm an editor.
Me: What books do you edit?
Guy: (he looks at me like he expects this is way over my head) Uh...I edited this one book called Venom. It's called Venom. And another one that's called Thunderbolts. Thunderbolts. And Scarlet Spider. And then I edit most of the children's books. We publish these little books that are for children.
Me: Yeah...I mean, I haven't been in the loop for a while, but I've heard of all those books. It's okay. I know what you're talking about.
Guy: (mimes explaining comic books) "There's this paper and we bind it together..."
Me: My best friends in Boston work in a comic book store so I used to hang out all the time.
Guy: Which store? I've been to them all.
Guy: Yeah I know that store.
Me: Maggie and Angela* are my best friends.
And then he literally backed away slowly and faded into the night.
*Maggie and Angela are renowned for being awesome, gorgeous, confident and intimidating babes on the comic book scene. The fact they're two of my best friends can immediately up my nerd intimidation factor.
Good life appreciation post.
I have a good life. That’s all.
nedhepburn: Ryan Adams “New York, New York” _____ This was shot on Friday, September 7th, 2001. I don’t quite understand the griefporn surrounding the anniversary of 9/11, or rather, the implications of said griefporn, as it is still another opportunity to divide this country (which we can’t seem to get enough of, it seems). We still, collectively, haven’t gotten over that day. We’re still on...
