Never Drink Hot Water From the Tap →
eek. this is gross.
ugh. morning after.
ceo did not come. thank goodness. i drank too much and spilled on myself in the rush of a flip-cup tourney. i ate half a slice of pizza and a disgusting hot dog. i almost did something very dumb. all cos i was drunk. i woke up on my couch only cos my friend was calling to drop off more stuff in my room at 715a. surprisingly, i made it out of my garage by 810a and drove to the office in silence,...
i have to go host a party right now. and i’m totally not in the mood. i’m only feeling like a party pooper cos of a couple of boys. which is dumb. cos if i’m sour over two different boys, is there even a real reason to be sour? yes. i’m a silly girl and its just how i feel. i don’t like getting upset over a boy. i don’t like anyone to have that power over me. ...

Covering The Coverage: Maybe Latinos Don't Hate... →
nice breakdown of the whole (dare i say ridiculous) discussion going on about how brown folks won’t vote for black folks. for people under the age of say, 60, i think this argument is false. of course, that’s just my dinky opinion, but hey - i do live (part time) in one of the latino capitals of the u.s. plus i think this site, guanabee.com, is under-rated. (even by me.) its like...

finally hit the beehive last night. um. its a cool space. i definitely dig the live jazz thing. only. hmm. the line outside makes it ridiculous. waiting that long to hang out sipping just-okay beer or pricey cocktails while surveying the mixed crowd of ‘real adults’, drunk yuppies, and lounging hipsters… doesnt make sense. maybe i’m missing something. or maybe thats just...
