Police Scanner Codes →
Your (not so) Daily Roommate and Denise
Me: A 187, that's a homicide.
Augie: Why do you know that?
Me: Mmmm I don't know. I just do. I know a few police scanner codes for some reason.
Augie: Oh yeah? Name another one.
Me: A 311 is public indecency, but I know that because of the group.
Augie: What's a 69?
Me: What we did last night .. wait, 69 is talking, right? Cuz I'm gonna 69 with hella people later.
Your (not so) Daily Roommate and Denise
Me: Sometimes I wanna have kids just so I can teach them the wrong words for things.
Augie: I'm never letting you around my kids.
Me: You'd be surprised how often I hear that.
Sometimes when I read things I’ve written, I pretty much just laugh my ass off cuz REALLY??!? I wrote that in seriousness? CuhRAZY.
Hustler, a magazine largely devoted to sex …– the book I’m reading for class, introducing one of the many First Amendment court cases against the mag, and I heart this description
DAMMIT! I just wanna see Kell on Earth!!– I just yelled this to an empty room in absolute anguish because the internet is not providing my much-needed access to that show
If between the 2 of us I’m the one exhibiting sane qualities .. Well, draw your own conclusions. But good luck with that, really
No es amore.– Frankie J .. true dat, my brother, tru. dat.
More than anything ever
Right now I want an assorted fruit basket. You don’t even know. Also, I’m bout to be mad passive aggressive with it and take a picture of our overflowing sink and send it to my roommates cuz not a damn one of those dirty ass dishes is mine. I will be damned if I do their dishes, though, and it has all clearly gotten out of hand. Uff, must be playin.

Lessons Learned: It's all about me & Sick people...
Lil: I think I'm getting sick
Lil: But then i realized it's sort of miraculous that this is my first cold of fall/winter
Me: Yeah, i'm not talking about illnesses, I refuse.
Lil: hah why
Me: I don't 'have health insurance, dawg. I can't be getting sick
Me: My roommate gets sick a lot and I was gonna dog on her for being unhealthy or something but I just realized she works in a high school
Lil: How supportive
Me: Well i don't like her. I don't DISLIKE her per se, but I don't like her much
Me: Plus, sometimes, when people are sick all the time, I think it's because there's an intrinsic problem with THEM. Like, they're doing something foolish to be getting sick that often
Me: Plus, it's annoying.
Me: People always keep breathing on stuff when they get sick, or get on an airplane or something
Me: Like with no regard whatsoever for ME

One instance, which occurred today, was when my manager and I were discussing my weekly schedule. I work from home, so in actuality, starting work early is no skin off my teeth since I legit roll out of me bed and onto the chair at my desk. Now, I know that’s not how it’s supposed to work. These idiots keep telling me I need to dress like I’m in an office and get up an hour...
That one hour of hardcore pilates and the following half hour of strenuous running are things I’m going to be feeling for several days, but were exactly what I needed to get a grip. I hate sounding like a cliche yuppie white girl, but I was going bananas a little bit and needed that workout. I had deviated from my daily cardio for about two weeks, starting a few days prior to going to New...
I’m reading about the past 20 years of Chinese health care (jealousssssss?) and they had three programs, all called “Scheme”s. For instance, the LIS or Labor Insurance Scheme, or the CMS, the Cooperative Medical Scheme. I really like that. It just seems fitting, or at least telling.

You’re very dexterous with a computer.– Oscar to me probably like 2 weekends ago. It took me until now to really appreciate how much of a compliment I find this to be. Now I’m sort of like falling for this guy like whoa cuz who even gives compliments like that anymore? I’m pretty impressed with how he noticed, you know?...

Some guy accosted me at the performance I attended, all up in my grill like, “Hey Denise!!!!!!” I don’t even have a small clue who he was so I bounced so fast … You never know.

… Okay, okay…I’m not one who necessarily holds the opinion that White women are “stealing our good Black men,” and I’m not mad at interracial couples (duh). But…I get it. I think that the anger comes from the disparity between Black women’s options and White women’s options in the dating pool…. No, and I get that part, too, but I think that it’s the idea about the...

As if there is a place holder on the “good” black men for other women of color, as if a possession. The argument tends to stand on the ground that white women have all the successful, good white dudes at their disposal and non-white women don’t (for some reason) and so to take these good, educated, employed black men is tragic. There are just too many things in that thought...

Abortion Bill Filed in Legislature Among the bill’s major provisions: - Makes induced abortions illegal and punishable by up to life in prison - Allows doctors and hospital to refuse to provide abortion services. - Continues judicial bypass that allows minors to seek a judge’s order… When I see things like this, I don’t know if I even think of my own rights anymore. I mean,...

'Feud' Between Ice Skaters Escalates →
Keep in mind I’m not watching the Olympics this year, except for by accident (like when Joel forces me to while we binge on pizza and talk shit in my living room), but so I ran upon this article and … people know Johnny Weir is gay, right? Like, right??? I only say it like this because there was this one time my junior year in college when I lived with eight gay men and worked at a gay...
A Text Conversation Between Me and the Fella I'm...
Me: Hey there how was your day?
Fella: Hey it went fairly well still trying to get everything done.
Me: Yeah me too. I have a wall of hot pink post-its as a to-do list. You can steal that idea if you want - it's effective AND good decor.
Fella: Yea I'll hop right on that.

Eight states have this as a proposal in the works. As someone who excelled in a crappy public high school despite drug use, excessive drinking, and skipping class, I understand where this is coming from. Hell, I even ended up leaving high school early because I just got bored, but instead enrolled part time in a nearby state university prior to moving to Boston to attend Tufts full time. Another...
Don't judge me based on any of this
Me: I haven't washed my hair/showered since you did my hair [two days ago].
Me: And so I got up today and I have a sense of what my hair would look like in dreads
Monica: Things you should not admit
Me: Which is AWESOME
Me: So. I'm disregarding what you said and getting em, duh.
Me: Also - wearing the clothes [I've been wearing] since that car ride [back from New York, also two days ago].
Me: Working from home is gross.
Monica: I don't wanna stay friends.
Me: Hahaha I couldn't figure out who I could admit all this to without feeling the wrath of societal norms being pushed on me
Monica: You're so gross.
Me: Or maybe intrigued by the hipster lifestyle
Me: Ever think about what harm you could be doing to me by taking me to Williamsburg so many damn times? This is on you.
