“If you are 99 percent sure you’ve discovered the coworker who isn’t flushing on the second floor bathroom, and have further deduced that it’s the same one who has been bad-mouthing you to your boss, I will let you talk about this. I will listen to your corporate Sherlocking for at least 20 minutes, despite the fact that literally none of this story is engaging to an outsider. I will help you plan ways to catch him not flushing, and simultaneously use this information against him with the boss. We will be a team.”
hi lia! i sent out a package for you today! i hope you enjoy it! read any good books lately? and how hilarious has parks and rec been? wow! talk soon! :)
Hi TB! I am super excited for this package. Agreed that parks and rec has been sooo good lately, it took my roommates and I many days to get “get on your feet” our of our heads. Also I’m reading an AWESOME book right now - The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
If you haven’t already read it I highly recommend it. OR if you happen to be in the car for many hours as I was this weekend, the audio version narrated by Jim Dale is wonderful. His voice is magical, just like the book. I hope your week is off to a great start and thank you for the package!
“You want a job, a vacation, heath insurance, validation, a back rub, a scalp massage at the place where you get your haircut, people who are jealous of you, an ex who won’t stop texting you when they’re drunk, Twitter followers, happiness maybe sorta, someone to buy you lunch at a fancy restaurant, a mentor who can tell you what the hell to do with your life, a reliable internet connection, a reliable human connection, a gift card to the grocery store, dinner parties with friends where everyone will pretend to have their crap together for just one night, a nice flirty text message to wake up to every morning for the rest of your life, for everyone to like you even if you don’t like anyone, and one of those nights that doesn’t end till 9 AM and reminds you what it feels like to be young and alive.”—
You guys, I’ve been feeling like a serious 20-something lately. I want almost all of these things. And I mostly just want to figure my shit out so I stop feeling like I’m in an episode of a cancelled sitcom about finding yourself and get back to making soups and planning weekend trips and watching bad tv and all that good stuff.
True Confession Tuesday Friday: Sometimes my tumblr does this thing where it says that there are an obscenely large number of new posts to view - 24, 38, etc. - when there are really only 2-3. But, every time this happens I get really excited because I think that Beyonce must have had her baby and everyone is posting about it.
