return to sender

April 18, 2010


for some reason or another, I recently came across a clip of Nancy Kerrigan right after she had been attacked (here’s a video. skip ahead to about 1:55). she cries “why?” and “why me?” over and over again. it’s uncomfortable and sad. it’s also just a tiny bit funny, but maybe only because we know […]

December 25, 2008


anyone who is familiar with my writing conventions (this most honorable cohort might be all of two people at most) can proceed to pick his or her jaw off the ground. as you can see in the title of the blog post, the serial (or for you vampire weekend fans, oxford) comma is missing. though […]
