I'm sure you all know
that I am thankful for a ho lotta shit, but right now I will be thankful tomorrow night when this got damn move is over and we are out of this hateful building with no air flow, no natural light, and too many shitty neighbors. I’ll be thankful when we can make noise again and don’t have to hear other people’s noise. I’ll be thankful to be woken up by light coming through my...

I have a long post percolating
about TSA and when I was a flight attendant. I’ve been chatting with a pilot I used to fly with (who now flies with one of the majors) and he had a few good anecdotes for me to pass on. I’ll write it when I’m in a better state of mind. For me, righteous anger and a good mood go hand in hand. I love getting fired up. Right now I’m too apathetic and generally disgusted...

xntrek: girlvanized: I’ve noticed there’s a HUGE anti-diet streak that runs right down the middle of the feminist movement. Any time you’re all, “I need to go on a diet,” it’s like you have to turn in your NOW membership card. I think this is really unfortunate; … well, then, there’s only one solution — you are not going on a diet, you are going on a “controlled, calorie-centric hunger...

His friend had been writing emails to his son as a kind of record of his life as he grew up. They were now four or five years old. I thought this was awesome. Imagine if our parents had done that, how different our relationships with them might...
I am so fucking excited about moving house
that I don’t know where to begin with packing up this hated apartment. Granted, we don’t have a lot of stuff, so it’s not going to be that difficult. My friend who works for Nike is bringing me a bunch of boxes in the next couple of days. In the meantime, I’m trying to get everything organized so I don’t just end up chucking random things in boxes. So, today’s...

Ross is such a huge Steve Coogan fan, yet he’s never seen this amazing film. I’m about to fix that. The first time I saw it was with my ex, a South Londoner, who complained through the entire movie because he couldn’t handle listening to Northern accents for the length of the film*. *He had the same complaint about A Clockwork Orange
