Still heartbroken about Jon Stewart leaving The Daily Show.
I'm a contradiction. I'm not quite ready to grow up and fall in line, but I fake it very well.
I've always questioned authority, and I wanted to be a writer when I was a little girl. I like to think that's why I'm not a fan of cops and I prefer cheap bourbon.
But on any given day, I'm playing the role(s) of therapist/detective/runner/bill collector/sounding board/charmer/scapegoat/negotiator /bearer of bad news...
...all while burning through sticky notes, envelopes, and printer ink at an alarming rate.
Doing my makeup/changing clothes while driving - this comes in handy more often than it should
Preventing my apartment complex from burning to the fucking ground by being, I'm fairly certain, the only person who actually cleans the dryer lint traps (you're welcome, neighbors)
Overusing commas and dashes...(and ellipses)
Forgetting names. Even 5 minutes after you tell me.
Remembering song lyrics. Any genre, any decade... good songs, shitty songs, doesn't matter... if I've heard it more than 4-5 times, then my brain has, for whatever reason, decided that it is VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION that should be remembered forever - at the expense of people's names, apparently :/

AND... I can't listen to Nina Simone's "Mississippi Goddam" without crying
AND... Hole has been completely overshadowed by the hot mess that is Courtney Love's personal life, but their music gives me chills
worcestershire sauce and soy sauce make everything taste better.
love hummus and fresh vegetables. and cilantro. and homemade salsa.
Satirical news shows
If our president-elect actually has small hands, or if his suits are poorly tailored; and if his suits are poorly tailored, is that an oversight? Like how he thinks hair sewn into his scalp looks natural? Or is it just vanity? Does he think if his suit is a little baggy then we will just believe that his tailor is awful and then overlook his borderline obesity? When you're born rich but nobody cares so then you have to start grifting, are you a true grifter...? Is grifting a nature vs. nurture thing? Am I the only person who imagines his ideal pet as one of those hairless cats? Can a human spontaneously combust from ego overload? How does a 70 year-old man who has gotten like 3 hours of sleep a night for the last 20-30 years and who lives off of fast food and "twitter drama" find the energy and the motivation to become the laughingstock of the entire world? Did we really elect this idiot as president?
...I'm also pretty fucking terrified of the VERY REAL possibility of a President Donald Trump (my skin crawled and my life flashed before my eyes just typing that).
UPDATE: please send help, I am almost out of whiskey and not ready to face our new Dear Leader/reality
Bet you haven't ;)
