- I met you when we had fencing together.
- We had fencing together?!
- Wait, you don't remember?
- We were wearing masks!

Overheard among 20-somethings: "When I was a kid, we talked to our
friends with our mouths. And ears."

Possibly this happened after we all yelled "hi" over text message.
That doesn't work.

"if i have weaknesses, don't let them blind me now."

i think this is one of the best postsecrets i've ever seen.

in my opinion, that's what you want from a secret from a stranger. you have weaknesses? yeah, me too.

[later edit: want to see how people have tried to unscramble it?]

try this.

okay, a big hit this week, from an email of resources from my principal - this online quiz in which you have to put the united states together by the state shapes. i've heard a lot of complaints about the "little states," but i had the most trouble with the southwestern squarish ones. i'm like, give me some clues, utah!

an original and unpredictable show.

okay, this is what happens when you watch too much SVU.

me: you missed the crime!!
B: hahhhahahahhaa oh no.
how will I ever follow the plot.
9:10 PM me: oh, i think this is the one where the victim gets upset.
B: is it the one where stabler gets angry at the criminal?
9:11 PM me: oh, i think it's the one where olivia gets personally involved.
B: or the one where Olivia is the only one who truly understands the pain the victim is feeling.
me: wait, OR it's the one where stabler gets in trouble.
B: wait, we're both wrong. it's the one where cragen is there for expositional purposes only.
9:12 PM me: i think this is the one that's really informative about the different viewpoints about a controversial issue.
B: hold on... it's the one with the deli.
me: HAHAHAHA, it's the one with the unrelated creepy guy!
B: ah, now I remember, it's the one with the convenient unrelated - I swear to God I was just typing that.

yeah, we went on for the whole episode. it's possible. this show is awesome.

currently watching the SNL clip whatever show that's on. um, does everyone remember the "lazy sunday" skit? some of the cast members are saying it's the first thing they saw on youtube, ever. is that right? i have reflected before that college would have been a lot different with youtube. [insert short wikipedia research period.] youtube happened in february 2005, and this short was in december 2005. iiiinteresting. i'm so into recent history.

OMG DICK IN A BOX. wait. they can't say "dick" at this hour? hahahaha. did they not say it originally? that part i don't remember. they're saying lorne told them to bleep it because it was the christmas episode and a lot of kids would be watching.

note: the other awesome thing about this show is the 20-second clips of the musical guests.

"I've always felt uneasy about the whole internet thing."

Just bought a raffle ticket from my high school online, and got this email: "Your payment has been APPROVED. Thank you! We recommend that you keep a copy of this email in a safe place. It may be your only record of this transaction."

[Kristen wisely suggests THE INTERNET as a safe place. I agree.]

It reminds me of Gmail Paper, though! Remember that? I remember this being a big topic of conversation among my friends.

Overheard at a semi-fancy restaurant, from a group of fancy 20-
somethings: "You know what we should do? We should go to Walgreens and
get you some lashes."
