status updates for mommy

Sometimes, I wish my mom just operated on the basis of status updates. She is slowly getting into texting. She sends me a paragraph and I humbly return her never-ending queries with
" I'm alive."

Status Updates Since My Mother Became My Facebook Friend.


Scott is making good, well informed decisions.

Scott is going to bed at a very reasonable hour.

Scott is drinking only on occasion, and even then it's just one or two.

Scott quit smoking several months ago without any apparent difficulty.

Scott is in no way involved, currently nor in the past, with a married woman, regardless of what anyone is saying.

Scott is making large, regular contributions to his savings account.

Scott is making yet another home cooked meal, avoiding fast food as usual.

Scott is no longer in debt like he used to be...boy that would be terrible.

Scott is in no way affected by the current economic downturn...everything is a-okay.

Scott is not gaining weight, and his clothes fit just fine.

feminists don't hate men, housewives do?

"Our work finds that, indeed, non-feminists believe in traditional gender roles such as men being breadwinners and women being caregivers. At the same time, these non-feminists actually appear to resent the confines of the traditional roles they advocate, which presents a paradox for women and men in traditional heterosexual relationships," says researcher Melinda Kanner.

The Big City and the Endless Net

“ In their scope, both the Internet and New York are profoundly humbling: young people accustomed to feeling special about their gifts are inevitably jarred, upon arrival, to discover just how many others are trying to do precisely the same, with equal or greater success. — Bright Lights, Big Internet -

iPhone in bed

"The Passion 'app' uses the phone's motion sensors and microphone to take a series of readings during sexual intercourse.

Users simply start the programme, strap the phone to their arm or belt, and press 'stop' when lovemaking is over. The programme then gives a rating from 'bad' to 'perfect' on three criteria - duration, activity, and orgasm."

My question: do we really need an app for that?

How Artists Must Dress

" The artist's sartorial choices are subject to the same hermeneutic operations as are his work. When dressing, an artist should imagine a five-paragraph review of his clothes—the attitudes and intentions they reveal, their topicality, their relationship to history, the extent to which they challenge or endorse, subvert or affirm dominant forms of fashion—written by a critic he detests.

Communicating an attitude of complete indifference to one's personal appearance is only achievable through a process of self-reflexive critique bordering on the obsessive. Artists who are in reality oblivious to how they dress never achieve this effect." - n+1

And How Writers Must Dress.

Awkwardly. That is all.
