My German (EX) boyfriend and I while I was studying abroad in his country:
Me: Why won't you ever speak English with me?
Him: Because it's a stupid language. Your whole culture is just really dumb and I hate it. I'd like you a lot better if you weren't American."
@coolallison Is this where I can bitch about Gawker's Thatz Not Okay this week? A dude wrote in who had old period stains from 4 different girls on his bed and basically was too cheap to buy new sheets, which is gross for a bunch of reasons, but then Caity Weaver had to go and say this:
"How is it possible that four (4) separate girls have bled on your bed if you are not a murderer? I don’t think I’ve done it once, and I’ve had a whole ellipses of periods. A woman’s menstruation is not like an Eli Roth film, with blood gushing out of her, spraying everything in sight. You can usually tell when it’s occurring and it generally starts out pretty low-key. Whatever is happening in your bed, it deviates grossly from the norm."
Fuck you, Caity!
@tealily I want all the things, without the work. Is that so much to ask?

I got a new job! I start it in a couple of weeks! I was unnecessarily worried about turning in my notice but they took it just fine. In fact, they took it better than I'd have wanted. But that's part of why I'm glad to be leaving soon. Way underappreciated. Onward and upward.
And Roll Tide! Beat A&M!
I only have one week left in NYC! Then I am taking my cat and my man and I am moving to Africa!
I am sad/excited/sad/excited.
@Judith Slutler Look, he has many degrees. If that doesn't make him right then what the hell did I pay all that money for to get one myself.
@tealily YES if you get the offer TAKE IT. You should take it if you are offered it and if you truly are willing to buckle down and work on whatever skills you are lacking to make up for that. I have moved a lot as well--I've moved to some rural/slow/limited opportunity/undesirable areas for amazing job opportunities and I have only ended up with amazing experiences. I learned to love places I never would have otherwise been to. Granted they were temporary opportunities and I knew I would move back home when they were done. But if you already move a lot you know how that goes.
tl;dr: nothing ventured, nothing gained. Dream job? What even is there to think about!
Goddamnit why is it so hot. Would someone please deliver a truckload of ice directly to my bathtub so I can lay in it and drink whiskey on the rocks
