Dear Woman of My Dreams
Hi. I hope I won’t have to say this to you in real life, because you’ll sidle up next to me and give me the “I’ve been waiting for you,” grin. So we won’t say hi. I’ll stammer and step back, trying to regain my balance, and then perhaps I’ll ask your name and offer to buy you a drink. But you’ll laugh it off. “It’s too...

I’m in this!
Aww man. I haven’t Twittered since Florida? And I’ve been to Chicago and North Carolina and THE MOON since then!
Haruki Murakami - Kafka On The Shore
I just finished this book.
I’ve noticed average post length on Tumblr has gone down tremendously. It’s tidbits that show up on my Dashboard nowadays, not bigbits. Reading back on some of my older posts, I realized I’m doing the same thing. I spout a short thought or repost a picture and add a line or two, and you know what? I don’t think that’s what I thought I would do with Tumblr. Used to be...
Help Wanted - I Applied for 300 Jobs (Still Didn't... →
sashas: mirza: Esquire’s guy applied for more than three hundred over several weeks — and ended up with eight interviews. This makes me feel slightly better. My dad told me to apply to at least 10 places, and to consider myself lucky if 1 (or 10% call back.) They did. I didn’t get it… I guess this puts things into better perspective. Aww crap.
I’m gonna be trying some different themes for a while. Especially now that my theme is being used by a bunch of people, and I can get it back whenever I want by installing it again. This one is Cavalcade by Peter Vidani. I like the way it inundates you in me.
Got to keep the Devil way down in the hole.– The Wire theme song is the same every season, but by different musical talent. I like that they stick to their guns while finding new directions.
Themes my theme has passed
in the past two days. The Bard Franklin Street Pola 500 Polychrome Godlike Bliss stalebread Current amount of people using it? 591. 592. Here I come, Cavalcade and Library.
I’m trying to use Google to figure out how many total grand slams have been hit this year by MLB players. WHY DOES GRAND SLAM HAVE TO BE A TENNIS TERM!?! Also, I haven’t found an answer.
Remembered my AIM password. I’m bored, talk to me (adamholwerda).
Dude just started following me, hasn’t posted much of anything on his Tumblr yet but his layout is kick@$$. Kick at dollar sign dollar sign.
Summer is here...
saraholwerda: ….I’ve been saying goodbye to all my students this week, which is sad, obviously. I’ve gotten to work with 50 bright and energetic (to put it mildly!) second graders, as well as over a dozen incredibly adorable and eager preschoolers. I’ll miss everyone! On the other hand, I’ve been running hard since Christmas, so I’m in need of a gear shift. Is it wrong to admit I’m slightly...
sandboxwarrior: I suddenly felt like I absolutly needed a Chipotle burrito in my belly ASAP, so I drove 15 minutes to the closest location only to find a line snaking all the way out the building. Oh well. WHAT?! NO. NO. You screwed up this time, Rabinak. One does not drive fifteen minutes to a CHIPOTLE and then pull an “Oh well,” when he gets there. (By this I am assuming that you...
I’ve been writing a new résumé, but I’m at a loss for what to put in the “Skills” category. So I decided to just write down instances where I’ve been really lucky. SKILLS: Got 100% on Ziggy Stardust (Hard) while playing Guitar Hero. Won $7 dollars on a scratchoff ticket I found outside the gas station. Managed to get a girl’s number without pretending to be...
And Saturday Became Sunday
About to finish a 14,000 word story about a homeless man who finds a jacket that gives him money and sends him into the past. There’s action, adventure, and romance. And TIME TRAVEL. DOES THAT SOUND LIKE SOMETHING YOU’D WANT TO READ?
