I want to start a tumblr or twitter or something where people post the stupidest things they’ve done when they should have been writing. For instance I have a draft that I need done by tonight, so obviously I spent the past hour reading up on every detail of the Amanda Knox trial.

“Los Angeles. It’s always been more of a state of mind than a city. For every fantasy there are a thousand dreams…looking for a place to die.”—ACTUAL V.O. FROM A DOCUMENTARY ON A&E WHO IS WRITING THIS STUFF
My roommate informed me that on September 1st she’ll be moving back to Chicago. I now gave to figure out do I keep the great apartment and try to find a new roommate, or get a crappy small studio with the very small budget I have. If anyone knows someone looking for a roommate in the NoHo art district for September, let me know. We have a 2br/2bth by the park. No pets.
(anyone who knows her, please don’t post anything on her Facebook wall, all of her family doesn’t know yet, thanks!)
I can vouch that it’s both a cool apartment and Christina is a cool chick. Win/Win for anyone looking for a place to live!
“Thanks Jeanne. From now on, when we look up at the stars, we’ll wonder how much of it is a bedazzled duck.”—The Soup had clips of Quacker Factory in pretty much every episode, but they kept it classy in their tribute to Jeanne Bice.
Thanks for forcing me to do yard work and clean up after myself and all of that other crap that really made you loathe you for a good 50% of my formative years. Now that I am an adult, I look around and everywhere I go I see other adults who did not have fathers that taught them how to properly look after themselves and get shit done. Back then I thought you were being a lazy dick who didn’t want to skim the leaves out of the pool yourself. That was probably a part of it too. But I also like to think you were teaching my the value of hard work and responsibility.
Also, my electric bill is RIDICULOUSLY low because I never leave the lights on and rarely use the AC. And you better believe I figure out what I want from the fridge BEFORE I open it.
Well, first and foremost, welcome to the office! It’s going to be great having you around. For one thing, I can pawn remedial and tedious tasks off on you (haha! JK It’s a learning experience! It’s all a learning experience!)
Seriously, though. Your positive attitude and bright outlook on the future is inspiring, which is why I have gone ahead and jotted down some guideposts that I think will really help you find your place in the world of entertainment.
1) Never trust your instincts! There’s a reason “desire” and “distraction” use so many of the same letters. There will be times when you want something and you think it’s in your best interest to attain it. Maybe you want to pursue stand-up comedy. Or write a novel. Or get a new job in a different line of work. THIS IS YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS TRYING TO SABOTAGE YOU! Stay where you are. Always be complacent. It is the only way to get ahead. Much more of a sure bet then starting at the bottom again over every fanciful whim.
Who is your favorite Parking Wars employee? Part of me says Marlene in ticketing if you’re just going for pure brass. But Yolanda at the impound lot’s ability to stand firm yet maintain a level cool is always enjoyable. Overall though I’d say Sherry and Garfield in booting. What a team.
On the Detroit side, I gotta go with Norman not only for his positive attitude, but for the philosophical metaphors he gleans from the job.
