Chapter Nine: In Which I Think Only Of My Harper’s Application

I am linking to this blog only because of the picture in the margin. I would include this picture in my application to intern at Harper’s if I thought they would understand just how eerie the juxtaposition of Anime-style art and a Confederate flag is. It’s their kind of weird, I think, but still I […]

Well well lookie!

I have fanboys! Nice to meet you, Flip and RJ.

Lists: Miss Angeles Calls Roll

Lucky me — I got to compare the list of after-school kids with the list of school kids at work today. The woman who handed me this task looked at me apologetically.

Dirty Sock Redux

Alex Hessler has put up some pictures of our trip to Death Valley. Boy haz some photo skillz! In addition to the great shots from Dirty Sock, I’m really fond of this very hep one taken atop the Stovepipe Dunes. When I get mine developed, provided the sand in my disposable camera didn’t scratch the […]
