10. Somebody go read the rest of this and tell me what the deal is; I just don’t think I have the strength to face it today.
9. Glazed Canadian Bacon!
8. [no original copy]
7. If you suffer from sleep apnea here is another reason why you suck.
6. Up next: printable robots.
5. Do you like money? Do you wish you knew more about it? Have you spent the last few years nursing an inchoate desire for some sort of website that would help you learn more about money without being stuffy and dry? Yes you have! And here’s the good news: Such a site now exists! Please welcome The Billfold, the newest member of The Awl family. Brought to you by Awl pals Mike Dang and Logan Sachon, The Billfold “aims to do away with the misbelief that talking about difficult money issues is uncomfortable, and create a space to have an honest conversation about how we save, spend and repay our debts. We are going to break one of the last taboos in our culture — talking about what you earn, what you spend, what you owe.” Learn more here!
4. What’s that, you say? A “graphene sensor” that is tattooed on the enamel of my teeth and tells me when to go to the dentist? I believe I will pass, thank you all the same. ALSO OH MY GOD WHY DO YOU PEOPLE KEEP REMINDING ME OF MY DENTAL DIFFICULTIES?
3. See if any of these statements apply to you […] If you agreed with five or more, we should totally hang out. Otherwise, keep at it, I know if you give it your best you will get there eventually.
2. It’s not just doody in your chicken; there might also be arsenic in there.
Sometimes you feel real old, older than you are. Check the aches and pains, the hairline, the demands of life. Responsibilities, responsibilities. Worse things have happened to all of us; the circus wasn’t as good as you thought it would be, the movie stunk, etc., etc…
Punching the clock, punching the wall, hating your boss. You can’t go if you don’t know, and you can’t know if you don’t go. And everybody in the world has their own song in their heads. The best songs ever. Problem is figuring a way to get them out and present them to others.
You’ve got to know where the brakes are. Enjoy life at a realistic pace. You crazy youngsters, what with your nightlife and everything. And it’s important to trust other people while putting stock in yourself as well. Reevaluating your priorities, checking yourself daily.
Not everybody is a victim of circumstance; conversely, nobody should feel like a martyr all the time. Problem? It’s hard enough to communicate these days; some of us don’t even get the chance. Some others don’t know they have a chance.
When you travel frequently, you find a lot of images. And sometimes, you have to try and make the best of a bad situation: more often than not, we grin and bear it. Other times, you learn to enjoy some small facet of your predicament. Nothing too elaborate, just an attempt to adjust priorities. Revolution starts at home, preferably in the bathroom mirror.
Example? Winter always comes too soon. This year was the worst I can remember, except when I was five years old. Pushed open the front door, got lost in the snow.
I know some of you have deleted your Tumblrs (for whatever reason, like colleagues finding it or stalkers or just self-loathing in general) and I am wondering: if you delete, is there a way to download some version of it to your harddrive so you have a record (you know, for the memories)? Or do you just get rid of it all at once and be done with it?
For serious, pals.
ONCE YOU DELETE YOU NEVER GO BACK
Come to Summer of Megadeth’s Third Anniversary of the Delete Your Tumblr Meme this Sunday at Housing Works we’re going to have a reading in which Jay reads a book for the first time be there.
