Pass Me The Spoon, Pass The Analytical Knife
All I have in my section of the fridge is salad in a bag, tequila, margarita mix, and beer. And the beer’s not mine.
All This Fever Dreaming Kills My Appetite For Love...
Last night I had a nightmare about a minor criticism I once got on an English paper. What is wrong with me?
These Are The Reasons I Think That I'm Ill
I really liked the song My Manic and I by Laura Marling, so I looked up her website and found the video there, and now I really can’t stop playing it. The combination of the video and the song is so pretty and interesting, and almost reminds me of the tone I tried to strike the films I made for my experimental film class, although it succeeds far better. I love the look of the super 8...
Over a year ago, I was introduced to a very independent movie called Four-Eyed Monsters that was posted on the website www.spout.com. It is a film about the relationship between the two filmmakers Arin Crumley and Susan Buice, created over time into an intricate work of art, that is narrative, yet reminiscent of a collage. It is honest and beautiful and one of the most realistic portrayals of a...
Like, this is what life is gonna be — caring about people and it actually...– Susan Buice, from episode 13 of Four Eyed Monsters

I Had No Idea I Would Ever Covet a Sloth →
Please, for your own good, scroll to the bottom of this post, and look at the sloth pictures. You’re welcome.
I went to see this movie last night at the independent theater, even though I had never heard of it and knew next to nothing about it. How could you pass on that title? It was surprisingly funny and entertaining. It wasn’t a great or moving film, but I thought it was pretty cute… if a movie that involves blowjobs, a strap-on, and a threesome can be cute. Although the plot is minimal,...
Recipe For Last Night
Mix vodka, sprite, strawberry orange banana juice, freshly picked strawberries, and ice in a blender. Serve and enjoy with a side of Cheez-It Party Mix while watching a DVD of the best episodes of Friends. A tasty and satisfying evening.
How I Met Your Mother
When I’m in Canada, I rarely watch TV. We don’t get a lot of the channels that I normally flip through at home (MTV, VH1, Style, TLC) and during the school year, I don’t really have time anyway. The only one I ever consistently watch is America’s Next Top Model, and yes, I realize this kind of makes me a terrible person. While my housemates all watched House, Gossip Girl,...
This show makes me cry. Especially the episode with Sara, who was addicted to meth. It helps me believe that anyone can bounce back from even the worst circumstances. That’s really uplifting.
Wake Up in the Morning With a Head Like "What Ya...
Dancing in a sequin-covered dress = waking up the next morning with an arm covered in scratches. Ouch. Lesson: learned.
This is the best! You give them the date of the first day of your last cycle, and they calculate the date of your next period and email you a reminder. So awesome!
You'll Never Know How Hard I Tried, To Keep My...
I need to start taking my life less seriously and just be happy.
Yes, You Are →
This is something I think everyone should read. I understand if you don’t read the whole thing, but at least read the first couple paragraphs. The writer is Sarah Bunting, who writes for Television Without Pity, knows everything about baseball and grammar, and writes an incredible advice column — the only one I would ever seriously take advice from. She’s also a feminist. And if...
When I'm With You I'm Looking For a Ghost
One of my favorite musical artists, as well as the writer of a song whose lyrics inspired the title of this very blog, is Jenny Lewis. She is the lead singer of the amazing band Rilo Kiley, but since a lot of people know about them, I just wanted to use this space to encourage you to listen to her solo album — Rabbit Fur Coat by Jenny Lewis and The Watson Twins. At least listen to the clips...
After a Long Lecture on Being Assertive at Work
My Dad: Just be polite and ask them who you can speak to about your work schedule.
Caroline: I just don't want to bother them. I'm afraid of being snapped at again.
My Dad: Then go over there and slap that bitch silly.
This Is Why I Never Gamble
Last night I made a bet that shall remain nameless that it was Isla Fisher in Talladega Nights, not Amy Adams. I was wrong. But maybe I still should have won SINCE THEY ARE THE SAME PERSON.
She Works Hard For the Money
So I had my first day of work on Saturday. It went surprisingly well. Apparently, it was an uncommonly slow night, so I mostly just talked to the other people working there. But on a usual day or night, I’ll be standing outside the restaurant (Brandee’s) in front of the patio seating, just smiling and greeting people who stop to check out the menu. I also seat people, clear tables, and...
Nice Day for a White Wedding
Sean: I've never been to a wedding.
Sean: Wait, no, I have. But not a real one. It was more of a freakshow.
Caroline: It wasn't real?
Sean: There was a smoke machine.
I'm Taking My Seat.. Oh Oh Lucky Me
Just realized that I got the job on Friday the 13th. I’m choosing to take this as a good sign. Shhhh. I am.
And the Waitress Is Practicing Politics
So yesterday, I finally got ahold of my “boss” at Pizza Pizza and he asked me to meet him at the restaurant. After showing up half an hour late, he told me that business had been slow and he couldn’t give me a lot of hours but he’d put me on 1 or 2 days a week. But I know a girl who works there and she says they’ve been desperate for more employees and that he...
