link dump, douches, dark was the night
this guy on the left? his name is tom trowbridge. i was sitting at balthazar for brunch a couple weekends ago, trying to catch up on my new yorkers. some women sit down. they're loud and chatty and i was on the verge of being annoyed when she said, "and then he posted my personal information on craigslist!" and out came this WHOLE story about how she dated him and how she'd done something that pissed him off so he put an ad on craigslist, posting her info there and claiming she had a monkey that she was giving away. so she was getting random phone calls from people asking about said monkey, had no idea what was going on. turns out it was a cute prank from old tommy!
NB: okay, admittedly the idea of an ad like that is kind of hilarious. but funny if it's done by a friend. not some guy who you're casually dating who gets pissed at you for skipping out on a group brunch he'd planned.
so THEN she reads out this e-mail conversation with him where he basically is psycho and making threats and being kind of scary/stalky and he does that thing a lot where even though he did something wrong he tries to turn it around and make it seem like SHE'S the one with the problem because "i'm sorry for you that you don't have a better sense of humor" kind of passive-aggressive B.S. there was also great commentary to go with it, notes about how nice he dresses but how shitty his apartment is. basically guy sounds like a headcase. and she just kept calling him tom. my curiosity got the better of me and so i cut in and said, "ladies, i'm so sorry. but i've totally managed to eavesdrop on your entire conversation. this guy sounds like a huge sleaze and i just want to know his last name so i know who NOT to ever get involved with." she laughs, gives me his name, tells me to google him and tells me to tell the world to beware. so there it is: this guy is nuts. avoid!
i know there are haters but i think i'm in love: just matt taibbi being all hot/funny again
i relate to molls, we have a mutual love of ira glass, if i were funny i'd have written that same post verbatim
went to the dark was the night concert last night and it was soooo good that i almost can't even process it to write about it all. rundown here. and though i was hoping for sufjan to pop in it was a really terribly enjoyable concert even without him.
in other news: am working a lot. like, a stupid amount. so sorry i've been absent. working this much leaves me little time to do things worth writing about.
OH. huge drama at emily's bachelorette that resulted in the maid of honor dis-inviting another bridesmaid (the one who made my dress and emily's wedding dress) which is crazy. it was huge and bitchy and i sat there looking at it all, thinking, THIS is why all my friends are guys. even though the gays can be bitchy they never get the way the maid of honor got. girl was out of control. i hate women sometimes.
