I just did the same thing in the elevator that I overheard on the train this morning. I get on and see this woman dressed exactly like Stella from Project Runway and say to her, “Cool! Stella, right?” and she looks at me blankly and says, “No.” I ask, “But that is a costume, right?” feeling my foot in my mouth and thankfully she says, “Yeah… I...

Person 2: Um... what? I'm not wearing a costume. What are you talking about?
Person 1: What?
Person 2: ...
Person 1: Hmmm... so.
Person 2: ...

From Jen: I heard a story on NPR tonight about Amendment 48 (or 49, can’t remember) in Colorado claiming “person-hood” starts when the egg is fertilized. Of course it some religious freaks trying to pass it. Well the funniest fucking thing is all the peripheral impacts, and I quote, “We’d have to do the census different to include all the frozen embryos,...
Chic-Fil-A: tastes so good, yet it's so wrong! →
Jen: oh FUCK!
Leslie Fisher commented on you becoming a fan of Chick-Fil-A:
"Started by incredibly religious, conservatives that are homophobic and anti abortion."

me: c'est vrai actually
Chic is closed on Sunday because of that
same with In-N-Out
Jen: knew about In-N-Out
and their good greasy food
me: fucking whack jobs make some good eats
Watching Obama tonight makes me proud of this country in that it still can produce someone that is socially responsible, caring and hopeful for a better future for everyone. It is the best of what this country should be but seems to have been lost along the way in a wave of greed, cynicism and cronyism. Hope this coming Tuesday leads to a better future.

It was really funny watching two office towers worth of Financial Services executives filling in this square that normally is empty save for elderly Chinese men gambling and the occasional school group.
Sarah Palin; ‘I’m voting Obama’ →
“In another blow to the Republican ticket, President George W. Bush also said that McCain was too closely associated with the disastrous policies of the last eight years, and that somebody had to do something about the terrible mess out there in Iraq.”
Why I HATE predictive text
disapprovingmonkey: My all time favorite/worst T9 moment was when I texted a young man with whom I’d just spent the evening and who wanted me to let him know when I got back to my apartment: “I’m good in bed.” I meant I’m HOME. HOME IN BED. thumbwrestlinginbaltimore: …Worse than my usual drunk texts where I write “good” instead of “home” (damn T9 word) and “he” instead of “if”, etc. and...
