the internet, eh?

this hilariously sarcastic article made the nytimes most blogged list. so i'm going to just go ahead and add to that. i'm not sure if you'll be able to read it, but i'm posting it anyway, if only because it makes me giggle and feel superior to the world.

speaking of good writing, let's talk about having andrew and greg in mcsweeney's in the same week. can i be famous (or funny, for that matter) by association?

also, i think i'll be using this to make all my financial decisions.

great week for the internet, guys. :)

tearing out the sutures

okay. let's talk about meredith and mcdreamy. i cannot believe how long this storyline is going on and it's still so, so good.

cried twice during the west wing finale. not going to lie.


that is all.

don't you feed me lies about some idealistic future
your heart won't heal right if you keep tearing out the sutures

it'll be like two weeks notice, only cooler

good luck on your paper, kathr. this will all pay off when you're a big lawyer and supporting me in my poverty. and maybe saving me when i get sued in a theology-related incident.

travis is better looking than hugh grant. you can quote me on that. :)

more commas, please

so breaking news is how the nsa knows who i've called. i think i don't really care. like, i'll tell you who i called. and i realize that several people know that i, or at least my ip address, read mcsweeneys and watch gamecast almost every day. if the nsa starts monitoring the internet, they can find that stuff out. i mean, i don't know if it's a generational thing or what, but i'm aware that technology allows us much less privacy than we had in the past. and with the phone thing, it's not evidence and it's not proof of anything - it can only lead to information that's already there. [at this point in the typing, i can see why this makes people like the ACLU mad.]

did everyone know that they can figure out who you are based on your phone records, even if you change your number? the guy on npr [i listened to all things considered more than once today. kind of like my brother watches the same sportscenter all day] was like, "think of the combination of people you call. probably no one in the world calls the same people - you call the people close to you, but you don't call yourself." maybe a stupid hmm moment for me, but hmmmmmm.

i realized when i was driving home today that i live in the city now. there are more trees at home home. it's like a forest world.

and also, love this. has there been buzz about bloomsday 2006? there has.

is it possible he may have been high when he picked it out?

so what ABOUT those ads that say "your parents may know more about drugs than you think"? i'm a little concerned that kids will actually be asking their parents about drugs. and their parents will not know anything about any drugs except the 1969 version of pot. i mean, i'm all about the "even if you smoked pot, tell your kids not to do it" thing. [sorry, potsmokers.] it seems to address a legitimate problem. but i'm afraid this new "ask your parents" thing won't work. maybe some parents can let me know about this.

hehe i just saw that sex and the city where everyone at miranda's law firm thinks she's a lesbian. and she kisses the lesbian just to check.

miranda: yup. definitely straight.
lesbian: yeah, you are.

oh! i'm supposed to be working on a PAPER!

and i was BAREFOOT, too, i'm sure

thank kath for the font size change. she manages to edit my blog even while studying for her 1L finals. :) she's just that awesome at life.

i'm in that not-wanting-to-write-a-paper moment. i was looking at pictures [of scenery, of course. you know how i roll] and thinking how much sweeter this would be if i were in college - but then, it's a lie. the pictures make me think that college was sitting outside all the time. and it was sunny. and i was wearing a skirt and friends were walking by. yup.
