true fact about me #21
When left to my own devices, I will spend the entire day on my couch watching Investigation Discovery.
I just listened to the “Parent Trap” episode of This American Life. The Lucy portion absolutely broke my heart. This slide show obliterated it.
Michelle: now it's snowing/raining outside
Michelle: and it's all turning to slush
Michelle: i want it to be spring.
Andrea: paralyzing blizzard?

Michelle: that would be a good weather forecast
Andrea: the annoying blizzard of 2010
Michelle: you will be extremely irritated

I work in a tall commercial building downtown by Wall St, as I have mentioned before. I sit right in front of a window, which is nice because I have a view of the East River so I can watch the boats go by in the morning when the sun is reflecting off of the water. It can be really beautiful and calming. And then I know the weather is really bad when I look out to the river and I can’t see...

I woke up this morning and it was overcast outside so it felt like it was still early. I could barely open my eyes, it was like two little beasts were sitting on my eyelids, laughing at me. I got ready, got dressed, put on a hat and made sure the umbrella was in my bag and put on my rubber boots over my socks. Outside, rain. The snowbanks on the sides of the roads had finally melted overnight into...

Fever, chills, vomiting, watching playbacks of ecstatic Swiss ski jumpers at the 2002 Olympics… Sounds about right.

Class of 2000
My 10-year high school reunion is coming up. A few years ago I would have scratched out my own eyeballs upon receiving the invitation, howling, “WHEN DID I GET SO OLLLLLD!?” while the bevy of cats I rented for the occasion ate my decaying flesh. But no more! I’ve moved on! I can credit this change in perception to two things: 1. I’ve come to realize I actually enjoy being in my late 20s. ...
