I don’t know what happened. The day started off so light and nonchalant, but now I feel burdened. Is it the Sunday night blues? I don’t think so. Is it the fact that I have a headache? Maybe. Is it because I feel unfocused? That may be contributing. Perhaps it’s the bright lights? Probably, but it’s beginning to bury me. Up. :) Laughter solves a lot of things.
Theophilus London feat. Sara Quin - Why Even Try
Things that do not work...
Going out at 1am. I’m sorry, but I’m American… our bars close at 2am. You can then imagine the dilemma I have. I want to be sociable, but my body and mind only know one thing when a clock strikes anything beyond midnight: Sleep. Deepest apologies, Euro Crowd. I’m just not that acclimated.
Creative Logic & Anger Management
If I do not figure out how to organize all these variables for my boss by the end of the day, I will officially do something rash — like taking a piece of paper, viciously tearing it up and then balling it up again and throwing it into the trash can with more force than is necessary. I might also stomp my feet around and fall into my desk chair with a defeated “harumph,” too. ...

Such a dork...nerd...intelligenciana (new name)
I am surprising myself by witnessing my own extreme amount of delight every time I find a new tool to factor trade data and put together fun facts about freight. Believe me, I thought at one point I would never be interested in the shipping industry and I have finally found that thought also proven wrong. Oh, I’m such a government-policy-research-minded dork because this site just makes my...
Sade - In Another Time
I’m seeing a lot of circular thought and art going around on Tumblr. Sure, this is nothing new, but for whatever reason it seems to be sticking out more so now than before? Maybe this is a personal issue.
Funny Police Reports →
“The Learning Center on Hanson Street reports a man across the way stands at his windows for hours watching the center, making the parents nervous. Police ID the suspect as a cardboard cut-out of Arnold Shwarzenegger.”
Al Green - Call Me
Up, Down and Around
There’s a lounge across the street (or so) at this “posh” hotel called Smoods (the lounge, not the hotel). I think I should go visit because the concept is a nook for any and every mood and based on what I’ve experienced lately… I will probably have a nice little tour of the entire lounge. Hopefully I can also attach a new drink to suit every mood, too.
Overstatement of the Day
People are complicated.
Carine Roitfeld Interview with Style.com →
Such a good interview — many philosophies in here that are applicable to life in general and not just a career in fashion.

o_O okay… I understand wanting to talk to your family or friends or whatever, but please… not in a really loud voice and might I add… it’s getting to the point where I’ll use my audiophile excuse to buy a really nice pair of noise canceling headphones so I can drown out the outside world… it’s for the best
Avril Lavigne - What The Hell Just gonna put it...
I had a plan
That plan did not pan out. It was going to be one drink… and it turned into three or maybe four… I don’t know… whatever it was — it was not in the plan. What also wasn’t in the plan was getting my dress pants wet or my bag wet or my hair wet. It all happened. Other things happened, too, but that’s the thing about these things… You cannot prevent...

Must chin up, gather myself and move on.
Your daughter does not respond well to sarcastic and passive aggressive emails. You are advised to cease and desist if you would like to speak to your daughter within the next day or two. Otherwise, continuation of this path will lead to a cold February. Best, Daughter
Recently discovered that the tangerine I threw in my purse is inedible. Sigh. This is a significant disappointment and the proper response has not been drafted yet. Will get back to you on what my next action will be.
