Wherein Claire and Molly Predict 2010’s Song of the Summer

13 Jun

Every summer has a song.  It’s the one you pretend to hate but then immediately start dancing to if you hear it at the Gap.  The one that is stuck in your head for days and you don’t really mind…until about mid-July.  You know, the one Drew won’t let you play on repeat at the park (well, not until he’s had at least 80 ounces of Olde English).  So, Claire and I sat down last night and went through the contenders.  If you’re hoping I’ll just tell you what it’s going to be without taking you through the whole listening/music-video-watching/sangria-drinking process, you sooo don’t know this blog.  Let’s get started.

My Little Hipster

21 Apr

Hi, how are you? I’m fine. Wait, no I’m not. I’m not fine at all. I’m totally and completely appalled by this:

These fine specimens of unflattering beige blandness are American Apparel’s $72 fake riding pants. Breeches, if you will. For the Craigslist loft-subletting Williamsburg hipster who is trying desperately to recreate the youthful feelings she once had for the Saddle Club book series. Anyone who wears this is a poser.

the 'hood

So I’m not sure if I mentioned it here or not but in December I moved to Harlem. Then the New York Times wrote an article about me. You can find it here:

“Harlem: No Longer Majority Black”

Also, I filled out the Census.

Once again, Fridays with Evan

wizWhen Claire and I try to answer our own questions, this is what happens:

Molly: also i burned my hand on potato leek soup
Claire: ….did you stick your hand in the soup?
Molly: no it fell out of the ladle onto my hand
Claire: dang!
Molly: it burns
Claire: that’s hot soup
Molly: it was REALLY hot, and it just sat there, eating my flesh.
ironic, since i was going to eat it
Claire: you injure yourself a lot with various food/drink mishaps
Molly: i know. do burns cause wrinkles?
Claire: i don’t think so
Molly: also, potatoes should never be heated this hot
Claire: although it dries out your skin
why was the soup so hot?
Molly: another good questions
Claire: wait….in my mind, you were heating up the soup
Molly: also, i had to do this quick nasty move where i just smeared the soup all over my hand and arms to make it less hot because there were no napkins.
no, this was out of a pot
Claire: did you not heat up the soup? did it come that hot?
Molly: with a ladle
Claire: oooh
Molly: in the cafeteria
subsidized soup
i should sue
Claire: you should!

Yep. Point is, it’s a good thing Evan came back because, obviously, our questions aren’t going to answer themselves. Evan explains why Claire is white and why beer helmets are healthy, post-jump. Continue reading
