Dammit, why have I still not read this book?!

Emily (#20)

good question! Do you hate yourself and you want to deny yourself things that are awesome?

Matt (#26)

People keep telling me to and I keep forgetting! I will pick it up as soon as I am done with Lehmann's book.

It's really really really really amazing.

Someone should let me borrow their copy (ahem! hint!) once I am done with Freedom.

Matt (#26)

Unfortunately I could not borrow it from the person who recommended it to me because she only reads books in iPhone form now. (AHEM! ALSO!)

I love macaroons.

I thought it was going to be the other kind (because apparently they are slitting cupcakes' throats, right?), but I am just really excited that there are only about thirty more people in front of me in the queue for this book at the public library.

@ Art there's a bakery in the River Market now that makes good ones.

Damn, these videos keep getting better and better (production-wise). Love this one but Jennifer is so… ugh.

Brb, writing a book about upwardly mobile people… Probably gonna call it I Can Just Ask My Dad For The Money

Ugh, alright. Fuck. Friends have convinced me to read the book (this includes the video above)

I like the new opening, but I'm glad you kept the pretty curly font for the end credits.

Squidman (#1,188)

Is Emily going to sleep with her and then write about it in the NYT magazine?

I'm still not sure how to take these.

Like the opening bit, that seems to change a little each time. The sound editing. The pulling the book out of the pot followed by the awkward, impossible-to-get facial expression.

Is this a parody? Of…something?
