Fran: so i stayed up til 430 sketching
Kate: haha i was wondering who you were with
Fran: and ive decided im going to sketch a dress after all the ruckus girls to make a collection!
Kate: HAH i thought you meant sketching around with a boy
gleeson666: do you ever get into one of those situations where you’re like “I need to stop hating this particular person it’s not going to get me anywhere I’m just going to grow up and move on with my life” but then they do the tiniest thing to piss you off and then you’re like “nope fuck you right off I want to throw you off a bridge” I could think of a specific coworker….
Throwback on this here hangover Wednesday. ...
ooooooooh nice. you’re a kitchen scientist– 22-year-old awe on learning how to steam vegetables
So that happened.
There was a RAT in my subway car this morning. If it had touched me i may have felt differently, but it didn’t so that was just about the funniest thing i’ve seen since moving to New York. I’m talking grown men in suits yelling and jumping onto the subway benches and holding onto the poles. We basically did the wave in the subway as it ran down the length of the car....
That was easy
A potentially incredible opportunity fell into my lap today. At 9:05am I was ready to pull my hair out and by 9:30 I was all giddy with the excitement of new experiences. Don’t want to jinx myself, by my frustration with not liking what I’m working on may be solved with an extremely small amount if effort and work quite well to my advantage. Leverage, y’all. Fingers...
(Almost) Perfect Day

New York Post Offices
How there are not routine rage murders at the post offices here is beyond me. I’ve been standing in a line to pick up a package for 40 minutes watching the employees plod along back there like there isn’t a 25 person line out here.
Death is Nothing at All Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away to...– Someone i know from high school posted this today. I saw it right after a coworker unknowingly asked me if i had send a mother’s day card yet and it took some effort to just smile and say not yet. I like this poem.

Today we had a wine tasting for a team building event and our boss started out telling us how we would start from white to red and everyone’s trying to be a good sport and act like tasting these $10 wines out of plastic cups is just what we want to do when we have real work waiting at our desks…. And then she tells us we can spit if we want but she doesn’t spit, she’s...
The whirlwind week has ended. Seven cities, five airports, two beaches, one wedding, and a progressing tan. I was so glad to walk into my own place where i could drop my bag in the middle of the floor, take off my jeans and watch Mad Men in my underwear.
I’m getting irrationally agitated about being out of town and away from any Kentuckians for Derby tomorrow. So obviously being the emotional cutter that I am, I can’t stop reading Derby articles today. Will be going with Revolutionary for my winner pick and following a Ruckus suggestion of mint juleps for breakfast. Can take the girl out of Kentucky….

My suitcase from this past weekend has been emptied on the couch and my Chicago outfit potentials are strewn on my bed and I don’t even have to clean it all up before leaving because no one will see it. I’ve been forcing myself to be good about not leaving things out but this week living alone has been a messy traveling girl’s dream.
Been missing out
I only got into The Voice this season and I am lovingggg it. Team Caroline for choosing Little Talks.
Realized I was saying “we” to a cab driver when it was just me in the car.
Heartache. The general kind.
Within the first week of freshman year I met a quiet kid from western NC with the thickest southern accent and a funny name. He was always in and out of our suite prodding my roommate about her republican views and dropping slow drawl one-liners. But then freshman year turned to senior year and adulthood and only seeing occasional Facebook posts to remind you that you were friends with someone....

Kate: hmm don't know what to tell you
Kate: but i wouldn't burn too many bridges too fast
anon: it's not my fault < > slept with me on the first date
anon: that doesn't make us exclusive
A twinge of guilt...
Just looked at my receipt and realized that my DSW purchases tonight were so cheap because the girl scanned the clearance shoes twice instead of the running shoes. To take them back or just find a way to pass on some accidental karma…
Sautéed brussel sprouts and cauliflower with a sprinkle of Parmesan. Yum.
Lessons in how NOT to end your weekend
Or really, how NOT to start your week. We made friends with the bartender and manager at a new restaurant last night and proceeded to close down the place (I’m talking kitchen staff already gone for the night). Drank unlimited champagne and wine for too long and then the boyfriend had a 4am wake up call to head to the airport. There aren’t enough bacon egg and cheeses.
LK: my mom asked if i was really seeing someone or if i was just saying that so she would stop telling me to go on millionaire matchmaker
LK: which, yes actually does sound like something i'd lie about to get her to stop
When my friend says she and her husband are on a...
