Can I please tell you that it came into existence because we were complaining about the MTA and I tried to say, “insane in the mem-train” and there was a typo? This is what I do with my entire workday.

This morning I was coming out of my apartment saying, “Zhe shi xiong mao, zhe shi xiong mao… hello.” There was my neighbor getting the mail. Nothing weird about that.

I said our journalism degrees ARE useful. Por ejemplo, it’s easier to come up with jokes about pretend African nations having pretend civil wars. That’s what I use mine for.

This is the spicy tuna salad appetizer at a Thai restaurant called Klong on St. Mark’s. This salad is SO good. But also it’s just really, really, really fun to say, “Klong.”

It’s just like old times.

on us both being on our laptops at the same time. “Maybe we can G chat each other,” she added, since we are sitting at the same table.

wait why are backpacks cool? they make you look like a college student and everyone hates college students. (sorry, they do)

One more summer trend: The backpack is back! I mention it not because I feel I have truffled up anything unusual—this trend has been yakked about ad nauseam in the run-up to summer—but simply because I am surprised that it actually caught on. I never imagined that anyone could endure the heat-augmenting encumbrance of a backpack during the month of July. I was wrong.

-Slate: Attack of the $39,000 backpack

Hold up. I did not realize backpacks were supposed to be a big summer* trend. I did notice more backpacks coming into use in the last two years. I just started using a backpack daily this summer. But I did it because the gigantic bag I’d been carrying every day for the last 3 years was giving me back pain. I didn’t even carry that much stuff in it, but the shoulder-carry was destroying me. I don’t feel trendy when I wear my backpack (though I did pick a yackety vom-vom trendy one). I feel goofy, but my back pain is completely gone! Rarely, I will use my gigantic bag (careful to put almost nothing in it, defeating the purpose). It’s still perfect. It still feels like an old friend. I miss you, bag. Backpack can never replace you in my heart.

*Yeah, it does make my back hot. Next question.

I just said, “It’s a dry heat” and laughed and laughed.

Here’s an exercise to help you visualize the biggest issue “inside the Beltway,” as they say inside the Beltway, the Beltway being an actual leather belt originally worn by President Taft that stretches around Washington, DC: Imagine you’re a politician. (Sorry to do that to you; it’ll be over quickly.)

The automatic Taft reblog is a good policy.

Heat

shortbreadsh:

NYC has dispatched a pack of teenage males to my neighborhood wearing shirts that say “NYC heat.” I think they are allegedly handing out cardboard fans to people. But really they are just yelling out “HEAT!” to girls they find attractive.

Is this real life? 

Oh man. I wanna play.
