Making Friends: Humor: The New Yorker →
friedpickles: Hello, six-year-old child. My name is Amy, and I’m an adult. I suspect that you’re too young to understand what “adult” means, so let me explain. It means that I’m taller than you, and smarter, and that I get to do lots of awesome things, like smoke cigarettes and ovulate. It also means that I like to take naps on airplanes and read my newspaper in silence. These things seem to be...

A grade school accidentally showed kids porn... →
budsey: You know, I’m actually less bothered by the mistake than by the fact that a school wanted to show a movie starring the Jonas Brothers to its students. At least the porn was an ACCIDENT. I saw this earlier today on CNN and I, too, was more disturbed by the Jonas Brothers than the porn. At least porn stars don’t market sex to kids while pretending to be virgins… wait…
Three of my facebook friends apparently bought houses today. This scares me. Time to go back to grad school and read books!

Buy Local—Like You Mean It →
budsey: andgoodbye: What a mess. I HATE when people “make their own lemonade” at restaurants. It’s so tacky. When I was a waitress, there was one customer I waited on several times - an old lady who came in with her extended family - who would request a small plate of lemon and lime slices with her glass of water. She said that she asked for this at all restaurants. Since we didn’t always have...

Throw it all in a food...
I heart HIMYM. And, I'm pretty sure Daniel and I...
Ted: I think there is a dynamic quality to the brushwork that, combined with the fluid composition, creates an almost Kandinsky-like emotional resonance.
Robin: Yes... and you can still enjoy it if you're not a pretentious douche.

MGMT- Kids →
budsey: katherineliu: This seems like a really belated release. Also, as much as I don’t like kids, I really feel sorry for this one. He’s going to need a few years of therapy. This is one of my favorite songs, and I can’t enjoy the video because I’m so worried about that poor child. And that minute-long bit at the beginning with the Mark Twain quote is dumb. Someone call DFCS…...
