Tyra has founded the neo blackface fashion spread - by way of mixies. I have to say, the shame i sometimes have of my kind - induced by huge egos, cluelessness, uppitiness, bourgieness, selling our darker kin down the river (sometimes literally), and internalized white supremacy - was actually in direct proportion to the stupidity of this episode.
"think about Egypt, the people, what they've been through"
"in Botswana, music is heard everywhere you go"
"Hapa means half in Hawaiian"
d: i know what you did last week
k: i think it was two weeks ago if your talking about that thing
time flies when you do nothing
d: no i was making a movie analogy
k: i got that too, thought it had double meaning..
d: sitting five feet from your bed
d: i hear you typing
k: if there were an upstairs i'd run there and not be able to get out
d: i need dessert
i'm gonna slit my wrists unless i have dessert
k: you still have ice cream sandwiches... the serious way?
d: they're not cutting it
k: we could walk to pioneer for pie
...and so we did.
UNTIL IT WAS CLOSED. THE ONLY 24 HOUR ESTABLISHMENT (a shitty diner not to be confused with the magnificent beautiful heavenly pie lady). closed.
the only food/dessert/sausage/cheeseburger to be had is whatever i remembered to buy at the grocery store several days ago.
this is criminal. v. like peasants of yesteryear. someone should open a 24 hour diner/bakery here. you'd make a killing. i'd hook you up with my local connections. not joking.
so of course we went to a bar instead. one drink: g&t and jameson and soda.
while the sonic commercial taunted me from the silent tv in the corner we could only agree with the barkeep:
at least it's exciting that it might snow.

seagulls are found on all 5 continents and have existed for at least 30 million years
all animals are believed to have evolved from sponges - sponges!
one reduces the temperature of a cheesecake to cool it gradually which keeps it from cracking on top
ramen gets its yum from sea cucumber
there are no snakes in alaska

there is one cuban. the lady i waited for the bus with at walmart said of him, "he's such a fuckin cuban - playin all that mexican music all loud and shit." She told me that right after telling me about how old people tried to kidnap her daughter two separate times, although in truth i think one time was a mistake.
but for real: can you really imagine a town without a mexican?
sometimes i have to mariachi yell to keep their spirit alive...

That is all.

I call it Snuggie Montage I.
Honestly, what did one do before the internet...
I don't think so. They're just so friendly. And pregnant. And organized in that charming homespun honest way. They prayed for obama to receive wise counsel you know...

B) has anyone else apprciated the best part of that commercial? The dog (clearly in a dog snuggie that yes- you actually can buy) is wearing walgreens reading glasses. Holla at a nearsighted bitch.
