This makes me want to have a cookie party where we taste all the knockoff Oreo brands and compare.
i believe that trader joe’s joe joe’s would actually beat oreos in a competition. just talking about them made me want to go to trader and joe’s tonight to purchase a sleeve and a quart of lowfat milk.
Seriously guys, cookie party? Sunday?
Newman-Os beat all.
My 10 Year High School Reunion is gonna happen on November 28th.
Today, I realized that’s going to be the night of the 9th Annual 3 on 3 semifinals and finals.
I’ve been organizing and hosting the 3 on 3 since the 3rd Annual in 2003!
I want to do both!
I just started working with a couple new people today and got thrown into the middle of a bunch of shit (including a meeting, as far as I can tell, on a big spaceship, but also in Brooklyn). Anyway, one of them stopped by so I could get her general information I would need on a daily basis - cell number, travel preferences, home address, credit card, etc. She tells me she lives in Tribeca… then says she lives on Lispenard Street. WTF? I, of course, assumed she was blithering and / or a spy with poor intel on how to pass as an American living in New York City. Turns out she MIGHT actually live there, as it appears to exist.
I was just on this street last Friday. Indeed I was!
Big news from this year’s Comic-Con! From Variety:
American Original has assembled a lineup of established comics to produce the graphic novel series “Comedy Death Ray.”
Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Silverman, Patton Oswalt, B.J. Novak, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Paul Scheer and Zach Galifianakis are among some of the first to contribute to the anthology, for which each comedian will create a comicbook.
The goal is to see individual books in the “Comedy Death Ray” series, shepherded by Scott Aukerman, generate spinoffs for TV or film that would be produced by American Original.
This might be the coolest thing ever.

Last night, in the shower, as I am wont to do, I suddenly tried to think of and name all the dorms and lecture halls from my college’s campus. I did surprisingly well, even remembering all the weird M-named buildings in the far corner of the Dark Side (even though my school was not particularly nerdy, we had a Light Side (Hamilton, traditional eastern liberal arts) and a Dark Side (Kirkland, weird ‘modern’ concrete architecture, hippies)). Babbit, North, Dunham, South, Major, Minor, Macintosh, KJ, Root, Dunham, Milbank, Carnegie, Bristols A-C, Wolcott, Psi U, AD, DU…
It was a really disconcerting moment - realizing that my voice and palette hadn’t formed those sounds in years, when I used to say them everyday. There are times that I don’t understand linear time and physical location. Why can’t I say those words and be back in the context where I once spoke them? Why can’t I suddenly be in the shower in North, ready to run back to bed to get a full 8 hours before my Bio 101 class at 11:00? I don’t want to do it over, I just don’t get it.
During my time at Hopkins, the dorm space was severely limited and had 2 kinds of names:
- dead white guys, in alphabetical order, in the unimaginatively named AMR 1 and 2 clusters
- the unimaginatively named Building A and Building B (suites).
- the icky but recently renovated McCoy and Wollman apartments.
