Is it weird that my evening plans include...
feelingfeisty: Monday night football, shouting obscenities, beer, jumping up and down, and more beer? Alone but content with it? Not weird at all, right? My plans are very similar except, for some reason, I agreed to let a friend stop by after his office party to trade more trash talk. He’s a Pats fan and has been sending me IMs for weeks now about how it’s too bad the Saints are...
John Carney: holiday sage. →
littleteacup: caryrandolph: 41. Avoid any girl who won’t wear a skirt in winter. The winter is too long as it is without having to do without legs. You’ll end up in the stairwell of a Christmas party making out with a girl in skirt. This one is so true. I was hanging out with a friend last night who I dated for a short time years ago. We met on a bitter cold January night and I showed up...
Words that are fun to say, part two:

Looking through rouge-colored glasses
Each year I see the giant wreaths magically appear at various NYC office buildings and stores over Thanksgiving weekend but it never occurred to me that … are you ready for this … they aren’t in one piece. I ran into a crew of elves getting ready to put one up over the weekend. They had unloaded multiple boxes and the wreath (of moderate size) was in three pieces like an exploded...
Everything's falling apart.
redcloud: (via feelingfeisty) Yep, here to. I think it has to, so you can put it together in a new way. *HUGS* Yep, when I’ve gone through those times I’ve tried to look at it like a puzzle. Sometimes we try to force the wrong pieces together and have to start over but it’s an opportunity to build a new picture just the way it’s supposed to be put together. Big hugs...
I may have to start tagging you NSFW →
Because eventually I’m going to get busted for my random outburst of laughter, spit takes and semi-permanent grin. I’ve already had a few people stop in my doorway looking suspiciously at me. But as the great philosopher Snoopy once said: “Keep smiling. It makes people wonder what you’ve been up to.” I could close my door but that would be rude. You see my office is...
Is that a cat in your pocket?
Coworker: Do they have such a thing as miniature cats?
Me: You mean like a toy poodle version of a cat?
Coworker: No, you know, like they have dwarfs and stuff.
Me: I think that would be just called a smaller cat.
Coworker: Yeah, the things I think of. Funny, huh? Miniature cats.
Me: idk, maybe you could pretend that's what a hamster is. :P
Per Request: Get to know me.

Can’t remember the name of the building but it’s on 42nd St (between 5th Ave and 6th Ave) across from Bryant Park and has the months and zodiac signs carved around then entrance. Very similar (maybe identical) lanterns down at the Met Life...

So is this a new thing?
There’s a birthday celebration in the apartment across the hall and each time a guest arrives, they feel the need to slam the door. Is that so their arrival will be noted over the loud music and chatter?

A table of thanks
I loved kaffeineme’s post this morning about the family heirlooms. And it reminded me of a few stories of my own. I have my grandmother’s engagement ring so I always joked that I would be a cheap bride since I already had a ring. I’m a resourceful girl and figured we could use the “ring” money for the honeymoon or something. At some point I suppose I had romantic...

Now more than ever, we need the Jedi.– Ewan McGregor as Bob Wilton, The Men Who Stare at Goats I love inside jokes and clever dialogue and the fact that none of the stars of this film feel the need to always be attractive onscreen.

and when I left the theater there was a Barney impostor (looked to short to be the real one) on the corner. Coincidence? I think not.
