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 :/

worcestershire sauce makes everything taste better.
love hummus and fresh vegetables. and cilantro. and homemade salsa.
Satirical news shows
...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).
Bet you haven't ;)
