HP 7.5 OMG the world might end now. I hope not because we’ll never know what happens. It’s frustrating to know, however, that no matter how good this first half is, I will leave the theater unsatisfied and annoyed, just like I was at the end of Pirates of the Caribbean 2, because no movie is supposed to end with a cliffhanger. Even sequels. That stuff is for TV. So why do I go? Because I’m a masochist.
When she sees amazing Prince covers. Excuse me, I’ll just be listening to The B-Sides on repeat until my mom comes into my room and is like, “What is this music?” And I’m all like, “Prince, Mom!” And then she’s all like, “What is this inappropriate song then?” And I’m like, “Sexy M.F.”, and then the chorus kicks in and Prince is singing “Come here baby yeah, you sexy mutherfucker,” but it’s totally not my fault because it is my dad’s album that he gave to me.

NYMag: How did you feel about the midterm elections?
Jay-Z: I seen some glimmer of hope in it. You know, the Republicans have to answer for their decisions now, so hopefully we’ll see how that works. Sometimes you’ve got to be careful what you ask for. You might get it.

Today, it got cold and I had time to kill, and since the library kicks you out at 6pm now because our government cuts the budget of all important things, I ventured into the grocery store, for what became a very long trip. Seriously, I was in there for 30 minutes when really it could have been like 10. They probably thought I was casing the joint. I did learn one thing: If a grocery worker knocks a head of broccoli on the ground, they do not just pick it up and put it back because hopefully you’ll wash it when you get home. They take it away. I’m hoping there’s some employee table in the back where people are like, “Dudeee free food.” Except who would do that with broccoli, really, let’s be real.
Which would you choose?
Had I known either of these existed, I might not have been such a snob about Macaroni and Cheese and refused to eat it out of a box for all my childhood.
