Oh my God I've seen Zadie Smith speak and it was THE BEST. She was speaking at NYU, and people were asking her all sort of young-struggling-writer questions, and she just Could Not Relate. She wasn't rude about it, she was very matter of fact, and it was just amazing to see the perspective of someone who published an international bestseller right out of college. When did you decide you wanted to be a writer? "I didn't really...I just wrote this book and it happened to sell really well, so then I became a writer. I don't even know if I wanted to be a writer." What's your writing process like? "I don't think you can force yourself to write...I just write when I'm feeling creative." It was awesome. Would that we could all be Zadie Smith!!
@srmattew Seriously. I would definitely pay $14-1500 for my own bathroom in an apt that had backyard access!
You can do that, but I've found you'll almost always get a better rate by calling the livery service directly. (I have also ended up in some sketchy situations with illegal car services, and I now prefer to have my trip on record!)
C'mon. Abby would definitely, definitely have had a trust fund.
Ernie for life. I try to be a Bert sometimes, to no avail.
@cryptolect also I don't want to be the Anti-Burt because I have a weird thing for 70's Burt Reynolds, ok
@cryptolect Oh man I just Chaosed all over that spelling on accident (my former 4th-grade spelling bee champion self is ashamed)
@kellyography Definitely not a Thing. Though it would seem handy! I organized my closet by colors once, and it was pretty nice because I could find anything away, but I didn't stick with it the next time I did laundry because I am indeed a Chaos Muppet.
I am the anti-Burt.
@angry little raincloud True, I completely forgot about the guarantor requirement which is complete and total bullshit
