i wind around the parties drink in hand

Two things:

1. Americans like to label themselves by their work. On Saturday, after surviving the rapture, I was asked this question no less than six times. I gave a different answer each time. There are only so many times I can say, "a jack of all trades, master of none" without sounding like a cliche. I wonder what this woman says when she gets asked that. Do socialites actually claim themselves as socialites? I said that (somewhat jokingly) to a stranger and his face went like O_O.

2. Raise your hand if the idea of the rapture freaked you out and prevented you from getting a good night's sleep. Okay, so it was just me. Can I move somewhere there aren't religious activists? How about that space in the middle of Australia?

I love the facade of Ryan's apt. complex.
Greasiest place in America.
How much more literal can chili cheese fries get?
Later, Ryan mashed the leftover chili and cheese and ate it. Cheese is not supposed to be that color.

  1. ha! the job status is SO true in the US. totally annoying. and the rapture nonsense? at 5 til 6pm in NYC, huge dark storm clouds rolled through and i actually kind of got a little freaked for a second. then i went home and independence day was on tv and i just rolled my eyes and changed the channel :)

  2. It's actually considered rude in some cultures to ask somebody what they do for a living. It is what I choose to do what should define me, rather than what I have to do to keep a roof over my head! Of course the ideal is to do something you live.

    Oh and there was a hipster rapture too, pretty obscure though, you wouldn't have heard of anyone taken up ;)
