No List Friday


That one time I was trying to run by the ATM, and upon arrival realized not one, but both were being held hostage by old people who seemed to not know how to operate them efficiently.

Book Title Riddle

This conversation happened yesterday:

Me: I just got that book by Nora Ephron.
LP: What book?
Me: You know, the one with, 'neck' in the title.
LP: No.
Me: Yeah, it's something like:

  • My Neck is Fat
  • I Hate My Neck
  • I Love My Neck
  • My Neck Has Wrinkles
  • My Neck is Old
  • I'm Too Old for My Neck
  • I Look Younger Than My Neck
  • My Neck Looks Young
  • Look at My Neck
  • Don't Look at My Neck
  • Don't Touch My Neck
  • My Neck Jiggles
LP: ... no.

Somehow, all of my guesses were wrong.

  • created new playlist on iTunes
  • cracked open a new Moleskine
  • Tweeted
  • ... 6 tweets
  • sent 2 text messages
  • checked Facebook
  • posted a note on a real life friend's virtual wall
  • favorited 2 tweets
  • [wait, 'favorited' is not an actual word, right?]
  • ... added 2 tweets to my favorites list
  • sent 1 e-mail
  • checked Instagram
  •  did not so much as glimpse at resume
  • #fail
