From the March 27 edition of The New York Times Favorite quote from this article: “Mr. Grimes, who receives Social Security, has filled the back seat of his Mercury Grand Marquis with the literature of the movement, including Glenn Beck’s Arguing With Idiots and Frederic Bastiat’s The Law, which denounces public benefits as ‘false philanthropy.’ ‘If you quit giving...
Bruce: Tomorrow would be a good day to call in.
Me: I'd have to readjust my PTO.

leftbrainright: Yep. I’m drunk. you’re stupid.
So Bruce and I are debating what we should do this evening. Our options are • make a healthful home-cooked meal and go to the fancy schmancy gym we are going to join after we’ve used our free passes • go out for margaritas with a side of burrito. Which do you think we’ll choose?

Of course I phrased that to sound extra dickish, but the quandary remains. It’s lovely out, but hardly sundress weather. Linen trousers? Alas mine are too large. I may have given them away. Nautical stripes? I own a lot of items that fit the bill. I could couple my navy sailor pants with my white… LOVE her.
Overheard from the elementary schoolyard outside...
Girl 1: (Screaming plaintively) Emily! Emily! Girl 2 (presumably Emily): Fuck you!
And now Bruce is making fun of me for taking a picture in the bathroom. Fucking ingrate.
Tonight's Drink Options

Hanging out with my mom’s new boyfriend. He says the word “crap” a lot and it irks me. He also called Bruce’s family “homies”. I think I hate him.
I reject the notion by the left of a constitutional separation of church and...– Well, Mr. Beaumont, I’m not a constitutional legal expert, nor do I work in real estate, so, you know, my understanding of the first amendment is limited, but I thought the freedom of religion clause in the first amendment implicitly made impossible the creation of a state religion.

booksarebetterthanboys: …do you have strong feelings about the Oxford comma? Let’s talk about them. I think I’m about to seriously belabor this point, but as an editor, it’s “controversies” such as these that make me feel relevant in the world. In addition, because I’m consulting my stack of style guides, it looks like I’m doing actual work instead of...

Bruce has rehearsal every night this week.
I can finally watch, without interruption, as many hours of History channel as my fat little heart desires in peace.
I swear I’m not ignoring your question/comment that made my face nearly bleed from blushing so deeply. However, I must say, you’ve really put my feet to the flames, so to speak. (I’m not sure I’m using that cliche appropriately.) Maybe it’s because I’m still suffering from exhaustion, maybe it’s because I’m suffering mild episodic depression due to my...
