The point of working out is to push yourself at least somewhat. If you are having a full phone conversation easily while on the machine, WORK OUT HARDER. Folks remind me of the daegu housewives. Sent via BlackBerry from T-Mobile
Take a moment to give someone a sincere, and not creepy, compliment today. If they are weird about it, that’s their problem. You just might brighten up someone’s day. I said not creepy. And don’t fucking stare. But smile.

As many of you know, my computer is in the shop. So, until I get it back, I will be posting my entries on tumblr. I will tag you in the link below the status. So here’s today’s. Can you think of the day when everything was going wrong and the words or actions of a stranger served to cheer you up? On sunday, I found out my computer was broken, and that I wouldn’t get it...
Unlike the emmys or grammys, the oscars do not exist in a vacuum. There are surprises, and shocks, but the writing has been on the wall 4 months. If you have been sitting around hoping that alan rickman would get nominated for playing snape that’s your fault for wasting your damn time. (He was great, but stop dreaming.)

‘On one occasion, this female (chimp) reached back to grasp the thrusting hand of the experimenter and tried to force it more deeply into her vagina.’ Male chimps are even shittier than male humans: they last five seconds. If they could last five more seconds, their ladies would manage to get off. Too bad. Sent via BlackBerry from T-Mobile

The ads for “Contraband” are getting so desperate they have convinced themselves that the reason no one wants to see that stupid movie is because they’re confused about where they might have seen the lead before. (And hey, I like those movies, don’t front.)

I’ve been told several of these and I had no idea they were all basically of racist or classist origin (and the tellers were not doing so on purpose). Fascinating.

Watching a stupid conspiracy show. They mention a guy who was hanged in the 1890s and then show a guy hanging from a bridge. Screen says, “Dramatization.” WHAT!?!?!?

Trucks cannot snowboard.” If you try to snowboard...

You know, you tell yourself you’re a good person and that you treat people well, but when confronted with the fact that you’ve done folks wrong, you feel a sort of cognitive dissonance (good person/bad things, what?). But sometimes good people do bad. And some people are bad. I’d like to believe I’m in the former group - but sometimes I wonder. (If you’re...
