Mad Men should get an Emmy for tricking me into thinking I might want to get into advertising.

AMC really did me a huge favor airing The Pitch right after Mad Men, because up until I sat through part of a Pitch episode about making some sort of junkyard commercial, I really thought I wanted to be Peggy Olson.

I hate to bash other people’s career choices, but I can’t think of a more creatively unfulfilling job than something like this:

I think I’d rather write the nutritional labels on dog food bags.

Are you in a bad mood?

Just watch this video:

My coworker Roy sends me this every time I instant message him on gchat at work like, “WTF. Why do I have to, like, WORK to make money? It’s nice outside; I want to go ride my bike! And get paid!!! Plus, what the FUCK, I have to take the elevator all the way to the tenth floor to get hummus? What kind of fucking autocracy is the food delivery guy running here??? ALSO, I totally stained my bed sheets with my period blood last night, which is fucking annoying and gross!!!” (I would never IM him that last thing but it’s the real reason why I’m in a bad mood this morning. Or, I was, and then I watched a chimpanzee riding on a segway.)

Love is your boyfriend smelling your toenail-less toe, unprompted, to see if it’s infected.

Things I hate that everyone else loves.

going to bars
being nostalgic

Nate is all like, “You love going to bars! You’re a liar!” This is true. But I really believed I hated all bars everywhere at the time! I just don’t know, you guys.
