“My daughter doesn’t want to go to gymnastics. She is screaming and she throws her pants and so her ‘manny’ picks her up and starts to carry her there. She has been doing this before, so I told him his main job was just to get her to gymnastics, whatever it takes. So he picks her up and starts to walk there. Well, my daughter just starts screaming “I DON’T KNOW THIS MAN,” he gets about three blocks and he has to turn around and go back inside. He would have gotten arrested- a six foot three young man carrying a child who is screaming “I don’t know this man, let me down…” I mean, who says that? She was 5. How did she even know to say that? I mean, it worked. Apparently she got back in the house and was all smiley and said “Oh man, I’ll just have to go watch tv now,”… I guess that’s what happens when you let your daughter watch Arrested Development.”—Reason number thousand why I love working in the office- hearing these stories.
So between witnessing an insomnia employee stick a bike in a tree, meeting a drunk man named Omega who tried to steal our cookies/cigarettes/dignity, duetting with my cab driver to “Feed Me,” and now the loud, loud sex that is happening both in the room above andnext to mine, I have come to the conclusion that my life is a literal shit show. No. Really. I think I was put on this earth so other people can say “well, at least I’m not him.” And honestly, at this point, I am completely okay with my life being a joke.
“So on Thursday, we are going to do the ‘Thriller’ dance for the modern class next door. I know Andrea (the instructor) showers after she teaches so, do you think she’ll get mad if we spider web [silly string] her or slime her? I mean, what if we all just chased her down the hall as zombies and just… just ruined her? Yeah? So don’t forget your costumes. This is your midterm grade.”—My Jazz Professor, Jill
Tripped. Why am I such a fuckin’ goon when I see someone I like? I saw her, didn’t expect to see her and tripped into an open elevator, praying for the elevator to shut before she saw my face, which was as red as santa’s rosy cheeks. Then I had to ride up to the second floor. I actually have no game.
My excitement cannot even contain itself/ shameless, shameless plug.
The concert is going to be so fun, everyone! Please come! The concert is at 9pm tomorrow in the Kimmel auditorium. We will probably go on around 9:30/10:00 but you should go early to get tickets (which are only 5 dollars!). Let me know you have any questions!
Which is strange in contrast to my rough, rough morning. But somehow, fantastic and caring professors, this rain, christmas lights, and norah jones are all putting me in my peak work-mode. I’m turning this into a game to see how much I get done. Details will come later tonight. Also, along with this motivation, I am going on a money diet. Alright.. 3…2…1.. GO
i swear, it’s so much healthier. i’m going to learn to like tofu and be a vegetarian. i can do it, i can do it, i can do it.
Ah! Talk to me if you have any questions or want recipes or anything. Though I’m technically pescitarian, I haven’t had meat in 2 1/2 years. And know that if you don’t like tofu, its because you are not eating well-prepared tofu! Tofu should, for the most part, taste like whatever you prepared it in, so if you are having it raw its naturally to not like it! But just know that becoming vegetarian does not necessarily mean eating healthier (Oreos and French Fries are vegan). Make sure you are getting enough protein by consuming legumes and tofu products because you’ll start to get dizzy and sick if not. Also, I would invest in a daily multi-v. You might not always need to take them, but when first starting off, it can be difficult to figure out how to get all your nutrients. But first, START HERE!
A woman was arrested for “unlawful assembly” because she was standing on the sidewalk by herself during the Occupy Wall Street protest last night. When the media asked for her name, she said, “My name is Troy Davis, Emmett Till, Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King Jr.”

“Now Luke, I know you’re going to tumble about this later in your ‘wrapped in a beautiful hug of starbucks fashion’ so let’s just talk in person for a minute how absolutely perfect this fall day is.”—Em Kaz
