the following is an excerpt from a gmail chat that i had this morning. tao lin would be so proud. also, i edited it to make it more "skimmable." businesswomen everywhere would be so proud.
me: hey have you heard about that 8 limb girl in india?
Vinnie: yes, just watched a video on cnn actually
and she's a goddess, so watch yourself
me: parasitic twins!
Vinnie: that makes you happy?
me: sort of.
i just crave excitement. in any form.
Vinnie: as in not doing work
I get it, I get it
me: like, yesterday i was having this extended daydream where i realized i was pregnant, but clearly that's impossible, so the holy ghost must have impregnated me with the anti-christ.
and then i thought, "god, that would be exciting." and then i teared up a little.
Vinnie: oh, please write that as an episodic short
but i'm being serious, it made me a little bit sad. because i want so much for my life to be "about" something really big. even if that something is totally awful like giving birth to the anti-christ.
Vinnie: please blog this
and use that sentence
Vinnie: also, I hear you
I got the same problem and look at me, I'm weeks away from being broke with a BA degree and no direction for my life
I'd love to piss out the anti-Christ, even if it felt as bad as kidney stones
me: i'm glad that you understand. that makes me feel love for you.
i will blog it.
