Thrifty freaking Threads →
stotto: Ummm if you’re not reading Thrifty Threads yet, you’re out of the loop.
Me: Do you guys have walk-in services here?
Pharmacist: Haha. No.
Me: Do you know of anywhere around here that does?
I should have known Manhattan doesn't offer walk-in clinics — they'd be swarmed! But gah days like these I really do miss the smorgasbord convenience of the suburbs.
Phillip: I have problems, and my fail twin is moving away soon.

“Touch” by Natasha Bedingfield is my jam right now, if anyone was wondering
SHE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU
This is a city of easy conversation. On any given day, I’ll find myself in a conversation with 92-year-old named Louise at the restaurant about her ex-husband, the guy with the baby strapped to his chest at the Gap with the adorable dog, or maybe a quick exchange with a girl on the subway to find out where she got her shoes. People talk to each other here all the time — we’re crammed...

Phillip: that only barely makes sense to me right now
Me: ok, whatever .... i do the social media and new media marketing for the company.
I feel the same way about your job, Shannon. You are a transpondster.
