I'd never seen this before and it made me laugh a LOT.

I'm aware that I look like a bridge troll in this photo, but all things considered, I still want to share it:

For Halloween, I was "attacked by a 6-foot-tall elderly white man who became enraged when he saw my Obama bumper sticker (or pin, depending on when you ask me)".

Paul went as "man with sweater and beard" and then took off the beard. Boooooo! And not the scary kind.

The next night, we went to another party and Paul went as Casual Iron Man-- he made a harness out of duct tape and designed a tap light for under his shirt. It was my turn for the lamest costume EVER-- Adam Sandler's Crazy Newspaper Unicorn Man. It also involved a duct tape harness, and avoiding low ceilings for the majority of the night.

Also, bison cheeseburgers happened, and I got to make guacamole two days in a row. It was a really good weekend and d;lfwqohsdofhsa;ljnfasljnfasjdfnsakdjfnsa;kjfnasdkfja.

Last night, these things happened:

1. I held a nearly full pint of cider right-side-up.
2. I held an empty pint glass upside down.

It has been reliably reported by three people, none of whom are me, that there was no transition between actions 1 and 2; that is to say, I didn't drop the glass, or spin it around, or drink it really fast and turn it upside down.

"My thought process was, 'there's Laura drinking cider--where did the cider go?--hey, my pants are wet!'"

Watch out for the witching month, you guys.

Hello friends! This weekend in my sketch grad show, I will mime being "sandwiched" (3 dicks, not 2) in front of my boyfriend's Catholic parents!


Speaking of "AAAAAAK," not to take away from my problem, which is quite dire and entirely my own fault... but I was kind of sad watching Andy Samberg playing Cathy from "Cathy" on Weekend Update.

In the 1970s, "Cathy" was a feminist breakthrough. A career woman-protagonist was still a rare thing, and to deal frankly with now-mundane topics like premarital intimacy, weight struggles, remaining child-free and the ensuing frustration when your friends have children, in a daily comic strip, was a big deal! In the 70s and probably through the 80s, the strip was revolutionary. Cathy Guisewite was part of a big, bold change and was creating a strip about things that mattered.

Yeah, it's incredibly stupid now. But I'm sad that it's been reduced to what it's become, that Andy Samberg in a wig screeching "MY MOTHER DRIVES ME CRAZY! SWEAT DROP! SWEAT DROP!" is how most people see a comic strip that once did something great for women.

Edit: The Cathy Wikipedia entry is hilarious, and includes a breakdown of "The Four Basic Guilt Groups," as well as a list of anthologies released over the years:

1980: What Do You Mean, I Still Don't Have Equal Rights??!
2000: Shoes: Chocolate For The Feet

The good news: I get to take 5 levels of improv classes at IB on scholarship.

The bad news: I can no longer say "Well, I bet I'd be good at improv if I did it more often." I have to get better now, or find a new excuse.

Because someday my children or my neighbors' children might ask to interview me for Social Studies.Collapse )

My feet smell so bad and I just washed them last night.

These are some movies that I recently assumed were all directed by Charlie Kaufman.

Right? Because when you find a cover image that works-- a middle-aged dude on his side, unexpectedly juxtaposed with a plot point, say-- you apply it with a generous hand to all your subsequent movies. Right? That's what the really successful directors do. Right? Because that's the director's job, designing the poster. I think Charlie Kaufman made a good choice in avoiding Comic Sans.
