My cable and internet are out until tomorrow. :( Going to Whataburger to get a shake and eat my feelings.
I got a job!!! The good news: It’s not just a job but pretty close to my dream job. The bad news: They only have enough grant money to fund my position for six weeks so I’ll be looking for job again come mid-August.
In about 3 hours, I’ll be touching down in Vegas for my sister’s 21st bday celebration. This is also the first trip with the girlfriend and my parents, not that I’m having an anxiety attack or anything…
And I’m spent…
I’m sure there’s a reason to keep the Isner-Mahut match on Court 18 rather than move it to Centre Court so that the fans can actually watch it and the announcers an actually be at the court instead of in studio, but I don’t get it.
Have to take someone to the airport in 3 hours. Debating whether it’s worth it to try to get any sleep tonight or to just power through.
Trying really hard not to get my hopes up
One of the biggest questions about the 2010 election cycle, which we still don’t really know the answer to, is whether it will be solely an anti-Democratic year or more broadly an anti-incumbent year. Our newest Texas poll would seem to suggest voter fatigue toward long serving politicians in both parties- Republican Governor Rick Perry is now tied at 43 with Democratic challenger...
Loving the new iPhone software so far
Being able to organize my apps into folders and threaded emails are pretty much the greatest thing ever. It no longer takes me like 5 minutes of searching to find an app and a 30-message gmail thread no longer takes up my entire inbox.
Apparenly when you wait until 1 in the afternoon on Father’s Day to buy a card, it is really slim pickings at Walgreens.
Such a man crush on Kobe
Welp, you’re now worthless to me Starbucks. Starting July 1, Starbucks is going to be offering free WiFi. I used to go study at Starbucks solely because they didn’t have free WiFi and I don’t have the willpower to not fuck around on the internet. Thank god they didn’t do this while I was still in school or I would’ve failed out.
So...what'd I miss?
I’ve been moving and unpacking (and without internet) since Friday. The odds of me catching up on my dashboard are pretty damn slim. Did I miss anything juicy?
I need y'all's help identifying a TV show
On the show, there was a teen couple and their respective single parents started dating each other. And then there was a scene that basically went like this: Dad: So we’ve been talking and we’ve decided not to see each other anymore because it’s just too weird for y’all. Daughter/Girlfriend: WHAT? My mom’s not good enough for you?! (storms off) Son/Boyfriend: My...
katie-mac’s mom just drunk dialed me at 4 o’clock in the afternoon. There are no words.
I hate when a potential employer asks for my compensation expectations. I don’t think that “Uhh…whatever the maximum amount is that still makes you want to hire me…” is an acceptable answer.
Alright y’all, I need your help. I’m interviewing for a job this afternoon so I’m compiling my references. I worked at my mom’s law firm off and on for seven years, so I usually list attorneys at her firm for two of my references. I assume most employers won’t assume nepotism because they don’t know that my mom is a partner at the firm because she isn’t a...
intellectuallychoosey: Let me tell you a few things about my boyfriend… He is the best boyfriend in the world. He really listens to me and really talks to me. He’s reliable, honest, and consistent. He loves his family and friends. He can be serious, but most of the time he is pee your pants funny. He’s thoughtful like a Disney character in love. He’s kind, wonderful, and the most generous...
undercover-ginger asked: I love how Wilson Phillips is always an instant reblog.

“The One with the Embryos” This came on TBS a few days ago and it is one of my favorite Friends episodes ever but it has a horrible title that is not at all reflective of what is great about the episode. This is the episode where Chandler and Joey beat Monica and Rachel in the trivia about each other contest and win the apartment. Rather than focus of the funny shit the other 5 are...

jenmcnasty: OK this is cool yym: A helpful little tool for Foursquare feuds. Nice! It’s fucking on like Donkey Kong Dane P! Just 3 check-ins to go!
Writing cover letters is the bane of my existence
I will give any of you 25% of my first paycheck if you write me a cover letter and I get the job.
“HEY CHRIS B.!” Some person I’d never met before in my life shouted that at me from across the bar last night. At first, I assumed it was someone from middle school or something and I just didn’t recognize them because they haven’t retained their boyish good looks like I have. So I kinda just played it off and pretended like I recognized him until he said “the...
