I know I just posted something from Dazed and Confused, but…IT’S MY LAST DAY OF WORK BITCHES! Last days of school or work always make me think of this movie. School’s out for the summer, bros, shit’s about to get real.
+ kick ass hamptons/montauk visit last weekend
- ridiculous ear infection from wave diving
- inability to eat solid food
- inability to celebrate the fourth of july
- feeling like a douche for taking sick days the week before my day of work
- feeling like i have the flu/scorching ear pain
+ less than a week left of work
- only ten days left in New York
- have to pack up all my shit
+ Cambodia in 12 days. holy. crap.
That’s the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
This Kentucky girl is now officially a Kentucky resident again (according to the University of Kentucky). Thank the tuition gods.
I ordered some shoes from Steven Alan's San Francisco store, where the employees are literally one thousand times nicer than the New York Steven Alan employees. In addition to being incredibly helpful on the phone, they included a hand written thank you card with my order, and this “interesting” tote bag.

May I also add that Derek Thompson is a total cutie? Not to detract from his fine writing, but he looks so joyful in his byline photo - it’s adorable.
Here’s the thing: I don’t care if it’s unconstitutional. For all I know, it might be. I’m not a lawyer, so I’ll have to defer to Obama on that one (and, you know, most everything else). But it’s the right thing to do, and I’ll be damned if that’s not all that matters to me.
Moon landing was real. Evolution exists. Tax cuts lose revenue. The research has shown this a thousand times. Enough already.
My friend Stuart just moved to Cambodia to work for the Phnom Penh Post. I woke up the other day and thought, I wonder what the weather’s like in Phnom Penh?
Huge shocker: it’s hot and rainy.
