Haji: i bet you would be (laughing) if i made some type of boring intellectual joke that only bookstore cafe dwellers understood.
Haji: like, "Hey, how much did that pie cost? 3.15? Looks like they over charged you!"
me: what? what is that!
no, now your references are just pissing me off!
Haji: i was making a boring intellectual joke
me: thats not a joke!
Haji: get it. Pie/Pi

Haji: would you like me to give it to you pro boner?
me: ...and you wonder why you get the girls that gave blow jobs when they were 11.
It’s Christmas morning here, and the first thing I did was kill a spider (I drowned it in the sink while brushing my teeth). Maybe it’s because of Charlotte’s Web that I view spiders as more kin to people than the myriad ants that crawl through my apartment, whom I flick and spray and squash without second thought. Either way, I couldn’t think of a more mundane and yet...

I need sugary, contemporary R&B to rev up my Monday mornings lately. I’m talking Usher, Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige and Beyonce. It’s like an emotional sugar high, which I desperately need to get me out of my apartment at 6:45 am.

i feel like friday and saturday have just fallen through my fingers. and not in the typical “the weekend goes by far too quick” sense. tinged with a bit of melancholy and regret, the days actually felt too heavy, too thick and too burdensome to hold.

Each day for the past 4 weeks has been an exercise in “should i or shouldn’t i (call in sick)?” This past Monday, I punched the “I’m not coming in to work” hotline twice on my phone, my thumb hovering over the send button. I’d like to think a sense of pride in and responsibility for my work kept me from completing the call, but really, taking off my...

last night i flipped out because i found a huge ass roach in the bathroom. i immediately went under the kitchen sink and grabbed my little can of Raid and proceeded to spray like there was no tomorrow. It’s worth mentioning that I couldn’t bear to actually be in the same bathroom while I sprayed the lil wretch, but stood a good 9 feet away raining down all my Raid wrath upon his little...

When I lived and worked in DC, my morning commute would consist of a 30 minute bus ride from Palisades to Constitution Ave. Because I could never muster the energy to make a quick breakfast at home before work, I would often stop by the McDonalds (was it on 16th Street?) close to my office and pick up a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit. Though I worked at that office through all four seasons, I...
