Yoga (Sans Crystals)
After talking about going for forever, I finally went to yoga at Ruby Room tonight for “candlelight yoga.” Truth be told, the new age-hippie vibe (albiet a social climbing new age hippie) of the place gave me pause. Things like “crystal energy” and having my “aura read” do nothing but turn me off (relic of my childhood and being taught to avoid anything with...
The key point in the post I made yesterday or so about wanting a husband or domestic partner was the “stable job with good insurance bit.” I received some very unfortuante (although entirely expected, at least in my mind) news regarding insurance that has thusly complicated some career plans I made. That said, I still think I’m going forward with them, although my expenses per...
I’ve been missing D.C. again lately, a yearning feeling that seems to crop up every summer. I imagine this is because I spent my first non-foreign collegiate summer (and therefore, adult-ish summer) there. Although I’ve missed it fairly regularly since I left the last time, I’ve more or less resolved not to move back there. I was out there during my liberal conversion, but was,...
ISO husband or domestic partner
Hi, friends. Do you know someone seeking an attractive, intelligent, nice young lady to marry or form a domestic partnership with? If said person is employed at a stable job with good insurance and is okay with remaining celibate unless I’m really into them, I’m your lady! Taking apps now.

America as a Queen Bee
I was listening to “Talk of the Nation” on NPR today, and a professor at Johns Hopkins was discussing global views of America, saying that many people viewed the country with a mixture of condescension and envy. As I heard him and a guest discussing this idea, I was struck by how Mean Girls-y it was. America is such a Regina George. Hated, loathed, thought to be incredibly stupid, but...

This is one of the top 10 things I’ve seen on the internet. Such an interesting story, such a touching and fascinating project. Browsing through the actual photographs, I cried. Photographs are amazing. We should all take more, and perhaps more importantly, print them more often.
Feed the Animals
Without trying to sound pompous, if you could make an album of the zietgeist, I imagine it would sound something like Girl Talk. With Sinead O’Connor, T-Pain, Ace of Base, Soulja Boy, Cranberries, Chicago, Nirvana, Kelly Clarkson, Usher, Missy Elliott, Daft Punk, Cheap Trick, and even LEN and the Quad City DJs in the mix on the new CD, it’s almost like a musical guessing game, trying...

When A and I were going to the theatre, I noticed a movie poster for “Tropic Thunder” that looked something like this: I noticed it briefly and was about to go on my way, when I did a double take. “Downey, Jr?” I thought. “Is there another Downey, Jr., I don’t know about? Surely that can’t be…” But oh, my friends, oh it is.

superamit: soxiam: this post reminded me a story about lance armstrong. when he was diagnosed with cancer and his team and sponsors were bailing out on him, the ceo of oakley took it upon himself to cover lance’s medical bills by getting him on the company health plan. the insurance company obviously laughed at the idea telling the ceo that he’s just a sponsored athlete with no rights to the...
