It's ok cause I'm in my 20s. It's ok. It's ok.
It’s 11:30pm. I have to leave for the airport in 4 hours. I haven’t finished packing, and I’m kiiiiiiiiinda drunk. I’m eating candy and playing around on my phone. I mean, this could be the year I grow up a bit and start acting/feeling like a good adult, but it probably won’t be.

New Year’s resolution: more hustlin’. It’s 4pm and I CAN’T EVEN HUSTLE OUTTA PJS. But I’ll try. Thanks, Katt, you luxurious-haired sage.

(More from the very hilarious and very articulate Gawker commenters.) I feel this one, guys. After getting off to a rough start in our graduation celebration trip to Paris, my mother and I decided that room beers were called for. (Not much of a drinker, my mother was more than ready to pound a few after putting up with me acting like an ungrateful little shit for the first part of the trip. [I...

Continuing to act in a professional manner
Remember this, guys? My coworker did! She spotted this when she was out running errands and snapped them up for me. Rad! Thanks, Carolyn!
Who invited this loser?
Hey, check it out, look what I made for the work Christmas party! An edible…wait for it…wait…CHRISTMAS TREE! Ha! And it’s all healthy! How rad is that, guys? Guys? …guys?

Much thanks to a coworker, who after a good half-hour of discussion about Batman: The Animated Series (oh, only one of the BEST ANIMATED SERIES EVER which I watched from 5th grade to like, last month) pointed me in the direction of the Series Bible. Amazing and awesome and worthy of worship. /nerd
Stereotyping People by Their Favorite Author

who with the what now?
For an iPhone app that I’ve heard so much about, I don’t ‘get’ Foursquare. (Also, please turn down your music and get off my lawn). But seriously, anyone, care to explain it’s use/value? As far as locating friends (pretty great when they’re drunk and give shitty directions I’M LOOKING AT YOU, RACHEL) I prefer Loopt, especially since you can press a...
I got so upset with someone last night that I immediately felt the need to delete them from every online social media forum that we (previously. zing!) had in common. I am 27. And a little bit pathetic?
The world is a cold and unfair place
It’s Monday. I was woken up before my alarm clock (injustice #1) by a crippling leg cramp (injustice #2). My landlord will not let me have a dog, but suggested I get a fish or a bird. A FISH OR A BIRD.

Good news: I found dogs for all of you at the adoption drive today. Happy Holidays! You’re welcome! Bad news: even though most of these dogs are in loving foster care, I still felt like total shit/wanted to cry when I had to put the dog I’d been working with for most of the day (walking and training class) back in his cage and he knew what was coming and started getting agitated and then I...
Ow ow ow my heart ow
So I’m cruising petfinder.com because I figure one of these days I will need an animal companion because a life partner may or may not be in the picture since I am disgusting (dishes sitting in a sink full of dishwater for four days. FOUR. DAYS.) and kinda crazy (I kept switching the dishes from one side of the sink to the other, each time scrubbing the sink out and then plugging it up and...

Sometimes I don't totally hate this guy
Me: I still feel bad for making Batman fly. That's like, my Regret of the Week.
Ryan: He coasts in the air a lot.
Me: Only in his Bat-Glider!
Me: ...but thanks for trying to make me feel better.
This is sad. So sad. So very sad.
Even for me. I just came across a lost Batman action figure at the library and since I’m horribly immature and have no sense of professionalism I picked it up and started playing with it. Right away I posed him as though he were flying (one arm up and out; cape outstretched) and made whoooooosh-ie flying noises for a few seconds until it dawned on me that Batman! Doesn’t! Fly! And...
Good deed for the day: done
Doing my part to make sure that this never goes away. Never ever ever. It makes me so happy inside and because of this I’m pretty sure I’m a failed person. But I don’t care. (So happy.)
Things I ♥: instant gratification
This happens on a weekly basis at work: I read about a book online, sometimes when I’m checking out new releases or perusing reviews, but more often in the context of something totally not book related (in the comments section of an article, a quote from the book on a random blog, etc) and then look it up in the catalog and either place a hold on it or if I’m lucky, skip a few feet...
Puppies are not supposed to backfire
I’m at work right now (hi coworkers! on a break!) googling cute puppy pictures to help me make it through the day (did I mention that I’m at work?) and it BACKFIRED on me because you can’t search ‘cute pitbull puppy’ without inevitably stumbling upon pictures of abused dogs. This shit breaks my heart.
