Stop making sense

POSTED ON BY vanessa

So I was feeling a little guilty about my night of relative debauchery on Saturday. Particularly when my friend told me that this sober girl at the party watched me share a Ritalin with another friend. Great. Not only am … Continue reading

A Walking Id

POSTED ON BY vanessa

My friend Joslyn just created a blog. She’s a really talented editor, writer, and friend. (Did I just suggest that she’s a “talented” friend? She’s that too. THIS is why I need her editing expertise.) Check it out: An Outside … Continue reading

I’m in one of those moods where I wish I could change the name of this blog from “Thought Spot” (which seemed clever at the time, and now seems just trite) to, “I hate most things,” but it turns out … Continue reading

dharma bums

POSTED ON BY vanessa

I’m back from Joe’s wedding in St. Louis. And slightly still hungover. It really is a toss up — either the worst thing about drinking too much is rememebering that you were booty dancing in front of octogenarians or the … Continue reading
