On Hillary Clinton, Do Not Feel Guilty About Your Pleasures

Nobody in the history of the English language has ever felt guilty about anything they call a guilty pleasure.

On Weekend Roundup


The Seattle Storm are doing better but the first week or two was just rough. It was my fault I got excited because Sue Bird was back and Sue Bird is fucking magic. I'm just kind of spoiled by the sneakily good Storm of (the second half of) last season.
And would it kill them to go for an offensive rebound. ONCE?

The Sounders are taking names though (we will not speak of the New England Revs).

I am so hoping Ghana knocks the USMNT the fuck out because Oba/Dempsey have been amazing and I want Dempsey back on the squad.

@adorable-eggplant Ugh the summer transition was brutal. We were doing great doing great high of 80 high of 80 then bam summer. Why do people even live in Texas?

I don't regret it but I've spent the last pointing accusing fingers at myself in the mirror for knowingly taking a job in an un-air-conditioned warehouse. In May. In Texas. What was I thinking‽

So I've been at my new job for a week now and I'm just sort of getting progressively more paranoid. I do sooo much less work than at Target. I'm sort of constantly afraid that I'm going to get fired any minute on the grounds that oh it turns out they didn't really need another worker.

I mean as terrible of a job as entry level retail is I know that I'm damn good value for money and thus basically will never be fired for anything short of punching customers in the throat while stealing iphones and sexually harassing my bosses.

I mean I'm doing my job at the warehouse and I'm doing it well but I can't shake the feeling that they're going to notice that they have 2 people doing a 1.5 person job... hopefully it's just been a slow week.

Oh and the WNBA preseason just started!

The Storm have Sue Bird back. Lauren Jackson is still out but apparently she's largely recovered so I'm hoping for a midseason addition.

@Onymous no no, I mean I've been working at Target for the last 18 months, that's ~11-1200 a month after taxes. This (just a warehouse gig) depending on taxes? 2-300 a month more.

Plus I'mma try to keep working Target on the weekends and that would be another 250-400 a month.

Got a job. It even approximates being a 'real' job.
