Pete Loves Doorframes.

He also loves legs (preferably the kind that are still attached to the body and not found on the side of the road, then buried) and will attempt to scale yours if you come over.

Questions.

Written by sally @ 3:19 pm — Section: sally

Does it make me a bad person that, while cleaning out some department files, most of which I actually opened and read, I didn’t think twice about throwing away the Jerry Clower file in its entirety?

What about the fact that I snorted uncomfortably at the file called “Mississippi — Negroes” and the fact that in all the articles from the 30s and 40s, the black people are quoted in dialect?

What about the fact that I have become entranced with a murder case from 1936 in which a woman’s legs were found on the side of the road…and then buried? Headline: “Severed Legs Given Burial Tuesday Morn.”

Sometimes I really, really like my job.

Unrelated postscript: Um, click here if you want to have to wash your eyeballs with soap and water afterwards.

“Dumb Bitches, They Get On My Nerves.”

Written by sally @ 8:56 am — Section: sally

America’s Next Top Model is finally getting good. There are nine girls left, so you can at least sort of remember who everybody is, at least with handy tags like “the big girl” or or “the one with buck teeth” or “the girl with the god-awful fucking eyebrows who looks like a man.” (more…)

Art School Pamphlet Code.

I have almost nothing to report about my drawing class last night. Most everyone ditched class, so it was just the kindergarten teacher and two of the women who want to continue their journeys through art. (more…)

Things That Are Not Awful, Part II.

Written by sally @ 1:03 pm — Section: sally

This morning I was finishing a boring/arduous task and playing a game called Try to Finish This Without Having to Stop to Go to the Bathroom. I worked at a luggage store in college, and see-who-can-hold-it-the-longest was a popular, if not unhealthy, game my fellow luggage salespeople and I would play (along with baseball using a piece of chewed gum). Apparently not going to the bathroom has always been a source of pride for me; my mother reports that I used to run home from school and say “I didn’t go today!” like it was, you know, something to boast about.

The 1910 Occupation Statistics, or How I Entertain Myself.

Written by sally @ 9:36 am — Section: sally

I was looking at the occupation statistics from the 1910 U.S. Census on Friday afternoon (isn’t that how you all waste time at work?) and I found some pretty entertaining information. (more…)

The Bridal Helmet.

Written by sally @ 9:21 am — Section: sally

Ok, so let’s say you find yourself on a bunch of committees at work, and that one of them is the, um, Fun Times Committee. And let’s say that because your company moved into a different building a few years ago, everybody has a chartreuse hard hat in their office. And let’s say that a member of the Fun Times Committee said, I know, let’s have a hard hat decorating contest. And let’s say that you rolled your eyes and tried to point out that this was a horrendous idea that apathetic employees would not participate in, but that the rest of the committee thought was a great idea, and so you had to decorate a hard hat.

How would you decorate your hard hat? (more…)

• First, I know I keep saying that Extras (starring my boyfriend Ricky Gervais) is a really good show. But last night I watched the latest episode, and now I am convinced that it is THE FUNNIEST SHOW OF ALL TIME. (more…)

Fall TV Roundup!

Written by sally @ 10:41 am — Section: sally

So all the new fall shows have begun, and yet I am lukewarm about most of them. I think my senses were dulled by watching week after week of So You Think You Can Dance and The 70s House. (more…)

Rats!

Written by sally @ 11:13 am — Section: sally

This weekend I finished Rats: Observations on the History and Habitat of the City’s Most Unwanted Inhabitants by Robert Sullivan. I have said before that I find these minutiae books fascinating; this one was (mostly) no exception. (more…)
