Why did we write about the 111 year old woman?
BECAUSE SHE’S 111. I mean, shit. She was born in the 1800s! THE 1800s!

anavalentina: Kingsley reminded me about ‘em - I resolve to have one this week. Transmet makes a good one. Where else? I think someone once told me that Last Resort makes a good one…or has a build-your-own bar. Something like that. Then again, it’s Last Resort (I don’t love the place). Also, I know nothing about Bloody Marys. I don’t relish the thought of drinking...

Why is there the option to order a pizza online?
anavalentina: How does that make anything easier for anyone? I think it must be left over from when instant Internet gratification first sounded really wild. Sometimes I order pizza online. For me, it’s more about being able to see what’s available while I’m ordering. Plus, I can add things at the last minute that I might otherwise have forgotten. That, and there are sometimes...

anavalentina: half-expecting to be able to pshaw it back to the Internet, where its album art performs, I figured, .gif-induced swirls. But guess what. This piece of paper is freaking me out, man. It’s swirling. Are you sure that’s not the airborne hallucinogens included in every CD?

Market research (or whatever the term is) makes me laugh. I love it. It gets it right, but somehow they’re always just a little off. It ends up sounding really removed from the demographic while trying to claim an understanding of it. Also, the Forbes article (linked in the link) is pretty dry, but still has some gems.

So Athens is listed as one of the “Dozen Distinctive Destinations” in the US. Franklin, TN, where my dad lives, is also listed. I feel like this is a little too boring to cover, but a source of pride all the same. Also, Juanita sent the news to me, and she works at the AP. Somehow that strikes me as weird and lucky.

A few cute quotes
anavalentina: from a police officer who helped me and a friend change a tire in Atlanta over the summer. Adorable, right? “You’re lucky you’re cute.” “Sweetheart, put that [tire] down. You don’t need to get any dirtier.” “If you bend over again my partner here is going to have a problem.” “Next time, it’ll cost you more than a smile… … … … … … … …two smiles.” OMG, WTF, etc etc etc. ...
