It’s really difficult for me to be empathetic about dreams, even toward myself, because it’s like, c’mon, at the end of the day, it’s not real. Deal with it. You know when you run into a friend and you’re so ready to talk about reality TV show bullshit or something meaningful, and they like, go into a half-hour shpeal about melting ice cream or falling into a hole and...

“Unless they have hooked up, plan to hook up or the guy is gay, there is no such thing as a strictly platonic friendship between men and women past the age of like, 12. Trust me.” — wise cab driver en route to downtown, 7/18/09 (and might I say, amen)
Burn it down till the embers smoke on the ground And start new when your heart is an empty room With walls of the deepest blue The flames and smoke climbed out of every window And disappeared with everything that you held dear But you shed not a single tear for the things that you didn’t need ‘Cause you knew you were finally free ‘Cause all you see is where else you...
Went kayaking down the Broad River today with Ginny. I am 6.5 miles closer to achieving the elusive aesthetic that I call “Jennifer Aniston arms.” Awesome. Now we are drinking Barefoot Pinot Grigio and listening to terrible music! Hurrah!
Mediocrity is a hand-rail.– Charles Louis de Secondat

Texts from Nick over the past hour, who just flew into NYC:
Nick: So you ever been to Florida before? Mi be ba francois
Nick: My family is in Georgia and I'm in... New York?
Nick: Two scoops? Make it three. I'm not driving.
We're coincidentally obsessed with the movie "Home Alone 2 Lost in New York."

...MARISA: At this point all I know about Tumblr people is that they love cupcakes and inspirational quotes written in Helvetica.
DAVE: You're not wrong...
MARISA: Honestly, I'm one negative comment away from taking a photo of "I just wanna fly, Put your arms around me, baby" carved into my desk.
DAVE: If you piped that onto a cupcake we'd get 5,000 new followers.
MARISA: I'll get the frosting.
OK. Here’s the thing. I’m 13. I’m away on summer vacation with my family in Vermont, which is to say cut off from all mainstream forms of civilization. I get home to find multiple messages on my home machine, all saying — while hyperventilating — something like, “Oh my God. You have to read Harry Potter and His Special Stones,” or whatever. Always one for...

And when you lay out for three hours and then do an hour on the elliptical, you’re going to want a glass of water, or two, otherwise you’ll end up dehydrated and dizzy, much to the concern of Lifetime Fitness staff members. Sometimes I question my common sense. I love you, H20!
Two women next to me at Starbucks seem to be having an intensely scintillating conversation about banana pudding. The ingredients, the taste, something or other about Paula Deen’s secret add-in. I’m either completely delusional and this isn’t really happening, or I grew up in a household that understated the significance of banana pudding. Because I’m just not getting it.
I only hang out with people who leave Tumblrworthy...
Maria, on her birthday:
Hey, Jenny, it's Maria. I'm calling you a little on tips' side. Even though, I know like, you're always busy, and I'm always busy, I'm always working, and you're always working, you know like with the whole work thing, the money thing, in the REAL world, you know that fuckin' green paper shit, fuck that gay shit, girl. Girl! Um, so we're dippin' out of the LL -- Oh! That's so pretty! Look at that! -- I was calling to let you know besides that I love you, and we're going to have so much fun when we hang out, whenever the fuck that is. And, yeah! Call me back!
Melissa, after reading her write-ups on a newspaper dating set-up:
Hey. OK. I am so pissed off that I was nice to this guy. Because, um -- wait, I had to make sure I was calling you -- the Web site I recall isn't that bad, but in the actual newspaper, they have little thought bubbles above my head -- which, is that allowed in journalism?! Are you allowed to put thought bubbles over people's heads!? -- and his says, "A Georgia peach is nice, but I'm looking for a big Apple girl." Oh, I'm sorry insurance salesman from St. Petersburg in the yellow sweater! Really!? And then, then over me, it's like, "I really like him. Sweet and Southern, just like home!" That's not fuckin' me! I don't say that shit! I could have fuckin' tore him to shreds about some of his comments -- or the fact that he was the size of a TOOTHPICK. Oh my God. Okay! Buhbye!

I get to see Ginny next weekend after a very, very long absence. We are going kayaking, barhopping, eating and asking people if they go to Bayside. It will be grand!

I’m going to miss my friends if/when I get out of Georgia, but I honestly need a big, big change of scenery. Soon.
“You don’t appreciate the chaos and absurdity of life on this planet. You don’t understand irony, or ethnicity, or eccentricity, or poetry, or the simple joy of being a regular at the diner on your block. I love that. You don’t drink coffee or alcohol. You don’t over eat. You don’t cry when you’re alone. You don’t understand sarcasm. You plod through...
