i haven't talked about how much i love madonna lately

this website says that madonna used to live on e 4th street in the east village in her super awesome 80s heyday. i'm not sure if i believe the exact address, but that's freaking awesome. i was veryclose to moving to e 3rd st, a block away from her alleged first nyc apartment. in light of this new information, i wish i would have moved into that apartment. that might be crossing the line being a fan to being insane. but still. it's madonna.

a post via my friend's couch in gramercy

apt hunting in nyc is like losing a contact lens in a public place. you know it's there. you know you'll find it eventually. but you may have to crouch down on a dirty ground in order to find it. and by the time you do find your contact lens, it may be all dried and shriveled.

i know there is an apt out there for me. but i'm gonna have to crouch on the ground and see some shitbags before i find a good one. and i may just have to settle for a dried and shriveled one.

this was probably a really unnecessary extended analogy. sorry? i'm tired. and looking for an apt here steals a little bit of your soul.

going out with a bang

this morning i hurt from head to toe. inside and out. last night was a blast though.

the evening started with lebanese food in the south side. freaking amazing delicious. i had vegetarian moussaka. the girls had falafel. we got some hummus, baba and baklava. we also had some riesling. great evening. the girls got me the best going away nyc survival kit ever. apples included!

then, we went for drinks at the bar. drinks. at. the. bar. lots of fun but the aftermath hurts.

the end of the night found me making bets with a cmu undergrad over who had more student loans. crazily enough, he has more student loans from 4 years at cmu than i do from 4 years at pitt, 1 year of law school (semester in italy included) and 2 years of grad school. i felt strangely validated by that conversation.

brandon and i did some dancing, i did some celebratory "im moving away from pgh" leaps. and now i'm very sore.

i also woke up with a reminder written on my arm (in felt tip pen no less) to watch this...

But people say NO.,
your skin,

interpretive dreams

last night i dreamed (dreamt? had a dream?) that i punched someone i used to date in the balls.

what does dream moods say about this?

"To dream that you are punching someone or something, represents hidden anger and aggression. It may also be a symbol of power and your ability to draw strength from within yourself.

To dream that you are unable to throw a punch, indicates that you are feeling helpless. You may have self-esteem and confidence issues.

To dream that you are drinking punch, represents vitality and renewal."

too bad this wasn't a dream about drinking punch. although i've always wanted to punch this dude in the balls, so mission accomplished?

feeling a little evil today

the stress of finals has officially turned me into an asshole. if you'd like to have an argument, today is a perfect day to give me a call. i can promise you that i will say something really offensive and will subsequently alienate or terminate our relationship.

i hate you all.

finals playlist

joan as police woman - eternal flame
fiest - honey honey
funkin matt - shake it dont break it
five stairsteps - ooh child
fukkk offf - the bottom (original mix)
justice - genesis
camp lo - sparkle
sade - by your side (cottonbelly remix)

(fyi. if i ever get married (unlikely), i would want the cottonbelly remix of by your side as my wedding song. it would make an interesting first dance. but then again so would 2pac's 'how do u want it')

girls, cups, being scarred for life, etc.

don't watch 2 girls 1 cup. seriously don't do it. i couldn't even get through the first 25 seconds of it. i had to turn it off and go wash my hands 8 times. i also threw out the plastic cup i was drinking water from.

the best part of the video is clearly the reactions. they crack me up. this brings us to...

the roots watch 2 girls 1 cup

NewsFlash: Man Asks Directions. Scientists Baffled.

Tourist: Excuse me, can you tell me how to get to 37th Street?
Hipster: Seriously?
Tourist: Well, I'm visiting...
Hipster: Look, man... You're on 42nd Street now. Walk that way, and if the sign says 43rd Street, you're going the wrong way. Turn around and go the other way. When the numbers go down, you're going the right way.
Tourist: So, the streets are numerical.
Passerby #1: Jesus Christ!
Passerby #2: Oh, you people stop it! He didn't know there would be math on his trip to the city.

--42nd & 8th
