You should be saying, "It's perfect strip club weather."

Domestication

I've never felt domestic and boring until last night when Jer's good friend Jason from high school and this girl named Ariel who he met online came over for dinner.
I was in the kitchen cutting potatoes and I turned on the grill when they came in. The Mets game was on the HDTV, which we also forced them to watch. I offered them beer. But it was just kinda weird because Jason is kind of a vagrant (he's going to become a squatter and is looking forward to it) and Ariel, although really nice, kind of looked like she never left her lab at MIT where she studies cognative something or other.
It was the first time that I looked at my apartment and my belongings and thought to myself, why. And we made them veggie burgers and our own special roasted sweet potatoes and forced them to watch the new episode of 30 Rock, which Jer and I spent the whole 30 minutes laughing our asses off but Ariel and Jason just sat there like stones. They made me feel so normal and settled for the first time ever and it left an unpleasant taste in my mouth. But maybe they're the crazy ones and we're doing okay. Who knows.

Coworker says I look like Sylvia Plath


She was a tortured genius of some kind, I guess. Let's hope I don't go putting my head in an oven. PS- I used the hottest picture I could find of her to make me look good.

You want an awesome challenge?


Read Roberto Bolano's book 2666. It is, by far, one of the best books I have read in my recent adult life. Yeah, it weighs a TON and is about 900 pages...but it's fantastic. Describing what it's about will not make you want to read it but if you want to be envious of the way people use language, then this is the book for you. I'm only 150 pages in and already am claiming this one of the best books of the 21st century.

Bad Day with Sea Change

They fired a bunch of people at work today prompting me to listen to nothing but Beck's "Sea Change" and hoping to refrain from hiding under my desk. It's so bad, the most straight-laced coworker I have just invited us to leave work early to go drink.

Crappy week


Here's a drawing to make it better. Maybe. The baristas at the Bucks were quoting Half Baked today and that made me smile. That was about it. Usually I'm not this morose. Honest.
