i wore a necklace today
I did! I wore a necklace today. It’s black and fabric-y with fake pearls and I bought it from J. Crew. It goes down to my boobs and it looks pretty nice. I got for like $7, which is pretty much the top line I would ever spend on any accessories. I’m only telling you this because it’s a pretty big deal. I don’t normally do accessories. Normally, the most I will do is a hat...
brosaleigh asked: Can I just tell you that I love your posts? That I didn't know anyone else truly loved the Commitments? And jee wow. :)
what the hell, tumblr?
It has come to my attention that Tumblr has decided to have me randomly unfollow people. This is kind of the equivalent of someone running up to you on the street with a me-shaped mask on and slapping you across the face and then running away while laughing maniacally. SO. I didn’t do that. I DON’T HATE YOU GUYS. If I used to follow you and it looks like I’m not doing it...

I’M BLACK AND I’M PROUD by Michelle Said … When you ask Americans about Ireland, a lot of us think of a cartoon leprechaun. Or maybe we’ll think about Guinness. Or maybe we’ll think about potato famines or U2 or whiskey or jigs or Saint Patrick’s Day. Maybe we’ll tell you we’re part… I’m still kind of over the moon that this guy requested that I write about The Commitments...

so i creep, yeah
just keep it on the down low If you see that some random loser called “splendourific” on Twitter started following you, that’s me. I wouldn’t recommend following me back because all I do is post TLC lyrics all day.* * NOT TRUE. Yet.
F to 4 to J
It’s 1:37 a.m. on the 4 train. You were on the F train headed from Bergen Street, but as soon as you left Jay St-Borough Hall, it flipped and started running on the C line with no warning. The trains to Brooklyn do this on the weekends; seemingly random service changes for no rhyme or reason. You are left to your own devices to navigate these waters on your own. Surprise! the MTA says....
If you ever want to know what it sounds like inside my head, it’s kind of like these two having a conversation.
internal dialogue, 12 a.m.
SELF: Time to sleep!
SELF: Yup, time to sleep!
SELF: So, we are agreed, you and I: it is time to sleep.
SELF: Yes, we are definitely agreed. We shall sleep. Now.
SELF: Yes, this was so simple.
SELF: So ridiculously simple!
SELF: Let's turn off AIM first.
SELF: You are right! You're always right.
SELF: We make a good unit.
SELF: Because we are, basically, one unit.
SELF: Well. AIM is now off. As it should be.
SELF: Turn off gchat too.
SELF: Right you are! Off it goes!
SELF: We are *so good* at going to bed.
SELF: The best!
SELF: Wait, what was that song you were listening to earlier?
SELF: Oh. Hm.
SELF: What was it, what was it...
SELF: Let's pull up iTunes.
SELF: Excellent suggestion. Pull it up.
SELF: Did you download it recently?
SELF: Hmm... Let's check "Recently Added."
SELF: Nothing is ringing a bell. At all.
SELF: Well, this is frustrating.
SELF: We should probably post something to Tumblr anyway. Just to show that we were thinking about music.
SELF: Right, because what if people didn't know we were thinking about music?
SELF: A TRAVESTY!
SELF: Yes, of epic proportions!
SELF: Pick a song. A good, moody song.
SELF: We *are* feeling pretty moody, aren't we?
SELF: Yes, we are.
SELF: There we go. It's uploaded.
SELF: Excellent! Now we can go to bed!
SELF: Oh, shit. Somehow this process has taken an entire hour.

Taxi rides are surreal. I usually never take them, out of principle. But then, whenever I am coming back from the airport, I always take them. Once again, out of principle. (The principle being that public transportation to and from the airport is always a nightmare.) My cab driver on the way to LaGuardia last Friday was a chatty Pakistani man with a shaved head and a long gray-and-red beard who...
