this is just to say that i'm tired of sharing an apartment with william carlos williams. funny enough that my roommate asked me why i was laughing. [it is important that you know the poem this is based on.]
internet VIDEO version:
pacey-con with joshua jackson. in which he reads fanfic. about himself. [it is important that you know pacey.]
harried server at the moth storyslam: "excuse me, did you have the grilled chicken salad wrap? no? they told me 'guy with glasses.' everyone here's wearing glasses. too many intellectuals." that's not the word i would use... [it is important that you know that i am often seen hanging out in places where men wear glasses. also beards.]
if you think my life is being run by gawker media, well, that's a whole different story. but i try not to read lifehacker too much, because it always makes me want to change my life in many ways that are probably not going to happen today.

flag in it. WELL-DONE. As he stepped off the train, the announcer
said, "This... is Chicago." I mean, because that's the stop we were
at, but still. I felt like an extra in the movie of his life.
And then, I went to Planet Earth Live.
Serious Announcer: The next story we're going to play is about an
Some Guy: YEAHHHH!!!
SA: Yeah. [Laughs, uncharacteristically.] The snow leopard.
So, what do you think he was yelling for? Mythical? Anticipating the
snow leopard? Hoping for a hippogriff?

Talk Deeply, Be Happy?
"Would you be happier if you spent more time discussing the state of the world and the meaning of life — and less time talking about the weather?"
Interview with the First Lady
I forget why I thought this was cool.
A Critical Moment: Barack Obama, Notre Dame, and the Future of the U.S. Church
I mean, it's predictable why I thought this was cool.

"she gets made fun of a lot because she acts 'like a boy.' and she's 'not supposed to.'"
if you watch to the end, there's some pretty sweet kid-speculation about how stereotypes got started.
also, only related in that i'm looking at the internet right now: passive-agressive wi-fi network names. how have i never seen any of these?
