every year, it seems that i always scramble for a halloween costume. without fail. so i thought i was hot shit when i settled on my costume a couple of weeks ago:
abby wambach (with a soccer balloon taped to my head)
but UPS is trifling and lost the jersey shirt that i ordered. YOU DONE GOOFED UPS.
so, i’ve come up with the following options as a back-up costume:
Bike Lock Prank on Anders from Workaholics
Blake from Workaholics
Katniss from Hunger Games
Michelle Bachmann Crazy Eyes on Newsweek cover (yeah, i’ll totally steal this idea. because it’s BRILLIANT.)
or i could just go to kmart, buy a white shirt and sharpie up a ghetto wambach jersey shirt…
as i drifted to sleep last night, i was apparently thinking about cheese. and came up with a rap lyric regarding my love of cheese:
i like it sour
i like it creamy
i like it folded into a pastry
please dont steal it. i’m pretty sure that this hip hop cheese song is going to take me to the top of the charts once completed.
see yall on MTV cribs!
i’m lucky enough to live in the first ward of chicago, under the jurisdiction of Alderman Joe Moreno.
among his many bad ass qualities (i.e. he sings The Clash at karaoke for charity), he is currently pursuing a ban on plastic bags used by retailers in Chicago. and if that fails, he wants to tax them for each bag used.
i’m super happy for the texas rangers and their second-straight trip to the world series, but i’m a little frustrated that they couldn’t have played this well when i actually lived in texas and my father forced me to go to games all of the time. it would have been much more exciting.
regardless, go rangers!
on this day thirteen years ago, Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten and left to die, tied to a wooden fencepost in Wyoming. just because he was gay.
he died five days later at the age of 21.
as shocking as the crime still is, i think Matthew would be proud of the many strides that the LGBT community has made in the years since his passing. and i hope he knows that he was a huge catalyst for those advancements.
