How can you sell matte nail polish and not say aaaaanywhere on it that it’s matte?
Everyone at work keeps asking if I’m cold, and I say yes, but the truth is that a hood-up hoodie is the closest I can get right now to bed.
“We had the tickets already - but (didn’t like it) - to much homosex (in our face)”
I assume this came from another survey at The Wedding Singer?
Cause, I mean, maybe it’s Rent or whatever other musicals are full of homosex (in your face).
My book club is full of winos.
Mine devolved - or distilled? - into a Drinking Club.
And with that, the man who just called put me on hold.
First morning truly caffeineless (project Reset My Caffeine Tolerance carries on!) and I’m headed to the gym unable to raise my left arm above chest-height from a tetanus shot.
I think this will actually work out for the best.
Catherine screams the unspoken fears of modern men: That we are being made smaller. That from birth our mothers infantilize us, our girlfriends domesticate us and our lovers humiliate us with their newly wakened libidos. That we haven’t become man-children by choice, but by circumstance.
The climb toward adulthood can feel treacherous, as if made under the surveillance of a thousand loving but judgmental eyes belonging to those women who tell us how to act — or what not to play. Reasonable or not, being a man is terrifying.
And so Catherine isn’t just a puzzle game or erotic thriller. It’s therapy.” —
Chris Plante reviews Catherine, the new puzzle game dressed as an erotic thriller and designed exclusively for adults. (via thedailyfeed)
I am so, so sorry to any of my lovers if they felt humiliated by my libido. I shouldn’t have taught it all those “Yo Mama” jokes. :(
I watched Tanner play this game for a while last night. It is WEEEEEEIIIRD.
And not the best video game for watching. Bring back those Navy SEALs or whatever! Push that katamari around some more.

Every so often I get to tell a soon-to-be-former donor that yes, we do perform abortions.
Today this woman was really really sad that she can’t keep donating because we provide emergency contraception.
“I understand,” she said, “that where you’re working there’s much more violence, that rape is very prevalent.”
She went on, “But you’re punishing the wrong person.”
“Okay, I’ll transfer you to someone who can take you off the mailing list.”
- In Dadaab, Kenya, we are currently treating 2,402 children in its ambulatory therapeutic feeding program and 130 children in its inpatient therapeutic feeding center. An additional 5,047 children with moderate acute malnutrition are enrolled in MSF’s supplementary feeding program.
- There are now around 10,000 people in MSF’s feeding program in the Dadaab camp.
- If people continue to arrive at the current pace, MSF estimates that the Dadaab camp’s population will total 500,000, rather than the previous estimate of 450,000, before the end of 2011. Living conditions are expected to deteriorate further.
- It now takes two months, rather than one month, for new arrivals to the Dadaab camp to register. This means increased delays in receiving food rations.
- MSF began working to treat malnourished children in Turkana district, Kenya, on July 18.
KW: When I got back, there were a billion emails waiting, each angrier than the last. People were fighting about whether the cost was too high or whether $40 was “not even much money,” and blah blah blah. So I sent another email, thinking, “This has just been a misunderstanding.” It read something like, “Hey guys, sorry for unsuspectingly causing a scene, I just wanted to know what the policy is. Can anyone tell me?”
SJC: But it wasn’t a misunderstanding.
KW: It was not. The two emails I remember most vividly are: 1) the girl who informed me that a Subway had just opened in Central Square, and if I didn’t have $40 maybe I should get a job; and 2) the guy who said he’d “pay me $40 to stop bitching.”” —

Yesterday applying for massive grad school loans, today appealing a health insurance claim denial.
Day 2 of my pre-grad-school caffeine intolerance project. Cutting back and cutting back.
Not so that I will live coffeeless in grad school, of course.
But so that when I do drink coffee, when I need it, it will work like it did before I got so acclimated.
Namely, to get me suuuuuuuuuuuuuuper high. And also very productive.
But seriously. Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuper high.
