Just lay me down in the tall grass and let me do my stuuufff.

I want you, dear reader, to say, "Tyler, shut the fuck up," the next time I complain about not having money. After I left work EARLY yesterday (I had finished my work and my boss told me to leave), I went to H&M and bought two pairs of pants and socks. I didn't really need the socks but I didn't want to do laundry. This morning, after finishing Bee Season on the train to work, I browsed through the B&N on the first floor of my building, first for a bargain book. Then I found a copy of The Portable Faulkner and I bought it. Bad.

I had a thought after reading some Faulkner on my lunch break: "I just need to find a cute girl who likes good music, Faulkner, and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls."

I've had two applications recently where "Pagan" was chosen as the applicant's religious preference. One was a 49-year-old female divorcee, and the other was a 19-year-old gay male. That seems about right.

When I got back from my lunch break this afternoon I had an email from funny-lady Julie Klausner, who performs at the UCB Theater in New York and was the creator of Cat News. She said that she was Googling herself and found a reference to one of her appearances on Jake Fogelnest and Jackie Clarke's radio show. I was pretty excited, then kind of embarrassed, since this is the post that she found, where I admit to having an online obsession with Jackie Clarke as well as a general obsession for most slightly-famous people. I'm surprised she emailed me rather than become a little creeped out. Bold move, Klausner!

I apologize for the post - I've been trying to stick to one topic lately, but nothing too out of the ordinary has happened lately, and I did get shit from a few people for my long post about how I don't like medium salsa from Chipotle. At the same time, however, it's my blog and I do what I want. I appreciate people reading it and commenting and everything, but don't expect too much from me. I'll write a week's worth of blogs about Chipotle if I feel like it, or I'll post my results for online quizzes like, "How Chicago are you?" or "What kind of kisser are you?!"

Take the quiz:

There wasn't nearly enough mention of Chipotle in that post.

OMG that is so exciting Tyler!!! I'm so jealous that you're internet friends with so many almost celebrities! (and the sad thing is I'm not kidding)
