Zoe and I talk about art.

Thought the same thing. It’s your computer background too. Also, I brought home some Schiele postcards when I was younger, and my mom was like, oh old art porn. Totally missed what was going on in the lady’s shorts. Hung it up anyway.

Really European Commission? Really? 

This guy needs his own spin-off.

Pretty, long words.

Searching for more pretentious words to learn and then describe my favorite television shows. “Eric Northman is…”

Verisimilitude: (n.) the quality or state of having the appearance of truth or, as in art and literature, depicting realism. “Downton Abbey’s degree of verisimilitude is compromised by characters who use modern expressions like, ‘I’m just saying…’”

Antediluvian: (adj.) of or relating to the period before the flood described in the Bible. Colloquially, it means made, evolved, or developed a long time ago or extremely primitive or outmoded.”Peggy Olson struggles against antediluvian notions of women’s roles in the workplace.” 

Just bully.

Governor Romney, I hate bullies and I really hate b.s. apologies. I once blew up on a kid in middle school for his continued physical abuse of a special needs student and I remember his cornered, b.s. apology that was so pathetic and inauthentic. So listening to Romney’s own half-assed apology on the radio yesterday was a flashback and a half. 

And I’m not going to say, “The real problem here is how he’s handling the situation and how he is apologizing, not that he had some juvenile indiscretion because you can’t hold him responsible for that.” Really? Can’t I? Because to me that kind of “prank” is indicative of a cruel streak that goes beyond typical high school hijinks. And to top it off, you can’t remember?  Either that kind of behavior was normal for you or you’re lying through your teeth because it’s politically expedient. 

Whatever the case may be, it’s nice to be able to pat myself on the back and know I had more spine when I was twelve than Romney had then or now.

Lucy the Elephant - Margate, New Jersey

 Lucy the Elephant is a wooden, 65-foot tall, 90 ton, elephant facing the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors enter through her hind legs where they are able to view her newly restored interiors. Constructed in 1881 as a tourist attraction, Lucy has remained as such despite a short period of time when she was used as a home and then tavern. She’s survived hurricanes, a fire and a two block move. In 1976 Lucy was recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. Tours of Lucy’s interior are only available May through mid-June.

Going home this Saturday. It’s this and diners that make my home state great. I have a Lucy the elephant purse somewhere that I need to dig up.

You sneaky little minx. Doesn’t really capture the cartoon vomit though…

And you’re too fucking blonde. We had a bunch of boys go blonde in middle school (here’s looking at you, Eminem), but when I think about it, I guess this look isn’t relegated to 1998. Time. Less. Timeless, people.
