novazembla said: I think this is a “Sure, but…” situation. Sure, but… a little goes a long way, it’s often misused as a substitute for other things (honesty, personality), and so on. Sure but… there are so many other character flaws in people with which to take issue. Like lack of charity or kindness. Just because someone likes whimsy doesn’t make them stupid. It’s lack of...
Let he who is without whimsy cast the first taxidermied titmouse.
I’m almost 30 and I have a job that very rarely requires me to get out of bed before noon. I feel weird about this sometimes, like I’m less of an adult in some way. Somehow I’ve gotten it in my head that the prerequisite for being an adult is stumbling out of bed sometime before 9 AM five days a week to go sit somewhere.

“Right before I quit my job, I got another job offer for $250k a year— but you know what? And people, co-workers, were looking at me like I was crazy for turning that kind of thing down - but I don’t want to live in that world. I don’t need that much money!

Dude who fell asleep in his car just came by to get his car while I was out on the porch having a coffee and a smoke. I apologized to him for getting him involved in this morning’s law drama and luckily he wasn’t fined anything nor did he get a DUI (in Colorado, you can get a DUI for sleeping in your car drunk).

Nothing quite like being woken up at 4 in the morning by some drunk college dude stumbling into your apartment. At first I told him he was in the wrong apartment (he looked really confused) and I asked him to leave. He did. I went back to bed. He came back five minutes later and leaned on the door breathing heavy so I grabbed the baseball bat and yelled through the door questions like “who...
