I went to a yoga class on the Fell’s Point pier with my friend Sue this morning; it was cool and overcast and really nice, aside from the ever-present stink of the Inner Harbor, which was more pungent than usual today. I’ve actually been doing great with the whole healthy eating/exercise thing this week, which I attribute to not being in an office and having easy access to a car. (And my mom making me go for walks with her every night.) I’m gonna miss those things when it’s time to go back to NYC.

My BFF’s baby is the cutest baby. I’m pretty sure of it. (We can just ignore the fact that later, I picked her up and she started hysterically crying.)

In case you were wondering if I was the worst cliché ever, I went to a wedding this weekend where the bride walked down the aisle to Neutral Milk Hotel’s “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” and I totally started bawling. Because of course I did.

I know it’s amazing and capable of many incredible things, but after the past two years I’m pretty much convinced that the human body is generally a gigantic pile of garbage. (Or at least my body is. I want a trade-in for one that isn’t falling apart.)

-/+

- Went to the doctor today because I’ve had heartburn/chest pain so intense that I assumed I was having a heart issue and/or blood clots. (It is probably not that, according to my doctor.)
- It has been 12 hours since this shit started and I still feel weird. 
- I have to write a fucking book and the enormity of the task is terrifying me to the point of inaction.
- I’m tired. So completely exhausted.

+ My grandmother sent me a cute video that made me feel a little better re: the above
+ Went back to my old hairdresser who is slowly fixing my Awful Haircut
+ Going to Maryland (for a week!) in five days
+ Work is calming down

Bleh.

Spekkio is still looking for a loving home. She’s a benevolent soul who’s kind to all living things, even other cats. Does not mind an occasional tummy rub. Will climb on your face if you’re not careful.

No adoption fee. Just looking for a kind hearted responsible person who wants a little white cat with prominent eyebrows. 

For more info please email me at: steve@scratchingpad.org

On the off chance that anyone wants a kitty… (which you should. cats are the fucking best.)

Sarah Larson talks to David Rees about what led him to host his new TV show:

“He started an artisanal pencil-sharpening business. When I saw him announce it on Facebook in 2010, I was excited. This was before parody menus of farm-to-table restaurants had come out, before it was a cliché to make jokes about Mason jars and pickle-making, and artisanal culture desperately needed to be mocked.”


Pretty much obsessed with this show.

What in the ever-loving-fuck is going on in the world right now? (shit, just in this country, but the world at large seems pretty fucked too)
