Oh shit! I forgot to learn to swing dance!
I’ve decided instead to look too hot to foxtrot. (Just kidding, I plan on dancing a lot.) Happy new year all!
You just butt-dialed me.

this is how i feel about my neighborhood.
neighborhoodr-astoria: mariellie: Astoria comes to you, and once it grabs you, it never lets you go…I wondered whether this was the right place for me. On my mini-UN of a block that houses immigrants from Argentina, Croatia, Italy, Ireland and Greece, some of whom don’t speak English, I didn’t know whether there was room for a born-in-the-USA kid who doesn’t know her ethnic roots…As I sat on...
katiecoyle: At some point last night I realized that by the end of the next decade, I could very well have given birth. Realizations like this don’t make me very excited about ringing in the next decade with one of two couples I know who are likely to be married within that time.
Me: It's a blue moon tomorrow night.
11 year old sister: it's going to rain beer.
It caused my family a great deal of confusion last November when I took jobs both at a makeup store and at Victoria’s Secret. I didn’t particularly want either job, but I was desperate and they hired me. My dad’s first response was “Why couldn’t you work at Paul Stuart?” Many months later and I’m awesome at both jobs but my dad is still … well,...
katiecoyle: There Will Be Blood (2007) EVERYBODY JUST CHILL AND HEAR ME OUT OKAY? (…) The more I defended There Will Be Blood, the more he began to see me as an arugala-eater; the more he balked at There Will Be Blood, and $12 appetizers, the more I began to see him as one of Will Ferrell’s lesser characters. It was time to cut the cord. It’s a veg-e-table.
Something I realized today:
When people ask about my plans for New Years and I tell them “I’m going to a Swing Club with my friend and her boyfriend,” they don’t hear “Lindy Hop” they hear “Key Party”. Well, my high school friends did predict that I would go through life a Swingin’ Bachelorette…
katiecoyle: I know I’m doing something right when I’m waking myself up at noon from Harry Potter stress dreams. “Right” is the word I’m looking for here, no? (In the dream Kenneth the Page was part of the Weasley family, and he died!) Awesome.
HEY 2009? GOOD FUCKING RIDDANCE!
Why is quitting your job so scary?
My roommate has deviated this evening from “Adia” and was singing “Bad Romance.” I heartily approve of this upgrade. Then he switched to “Here Comes Your Man” which is not only an awesome song, but was featured on an awesome mix CD given to me early today by thecoastisclear. Now he is on the phone with someone talking about his poop. “I didn’t eat...
fervorate: Meet Uncle Jim, hear his perspective...
Good things that have already happened to me...
-Reserved my ticket to spend New Years Eve at a swing club -Been offered another job Fuck yeah, today.
Just drank copious beers with friends from clown...
Holy crap and I’m drunk.
At Mom’s in the morning we listen to Frank Sinatra, eat homemade eggs benedict, and drink blood orange mimosas. At Dad’s in the afternoon we listen to Robert Earl Keen’s “Merry Christmas From the Family”, eat dried meats and drink vast quantities of homemade egg nog.
My sister is sloshed, yo!
Love ya, Lize!
For some reason, a lot of people have been asking me to tell them stories from my life. From my co-workers to my six-year-olds to strangers on Facebook, the demand is oddly high. So I submit to you a sampling of the stories I’ve been telling: The Yorke Children Are Excited for Christmas In Which We Try to Drive Someone Else’s Car Home The Reindeer on My Roof and in My Living Room ...

thecoastisclear: katiecoyle: And three days later was a Monday and it rained really hard and we all went outside after school and yelled and danced and jumped in puddles and Lisa and Matt dove into a lake? Are these memories accurate? And the whole track team was huddled beneath an overhang, watching us like we were crazy, and the dye in Corinne’s scarf bled through to her legs and they were...
Thought of the moment:
bingoparaphernalia: I wonder how many films would be improved by the addition of the stage direction Exit, pursued by a bear. I will never watch movies the same way.
Next time I shoot you it won’t be digitally. Unless I hit you in the...– Keith Mars
katiecoyle: Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) (…) In December of 2000, I was fourteen-years-old. I was about to complete my first semester of high school, and I had tried to get my hair cut like Colleen from the first season of Survivor but really I just looked like a boy and my glasses were large and ill-fitting and I’d joined Tech Crew and theater and really found...
In case you hadn't noticed, this was the perfect...
Especially if you look like an orange marshmallow and have a chance to make a snow angel outside your neighbor’s door.
Really?? For me?! →
