Lack

In this month’s Esquire, Tom Hanks talks about gaining weight for Cast Away and then losing sixty pounds for the scenes where he’s supposed to be starving:

“Eating everything you want is not that much fun. When you live a life with no boundaries, there’s less joy. If you can eat anything you want to, what’s the fun in eating anything you want to?”

Nice to meet you.

Bryan and I used to be broke. Broke as in, “I should get a job at a restaurant so I can eat this month.” Traveling is important to both of us, and now that we have enough money for food, we’ve made it a priority. So, though we just returned from Argentina, Bryan is giong to Holland for work, and I’m going with him. On the way, we’re having a stopover in Iceland.

So, what I’m saying is, want to get a beer? We’ll be in Reykjavik next weekend (June 2-4), and Amsterdam until June 10. And then it’s possible we won’t ever be back again. What should we see, where should we go, who the hell are you?

My sister eloped this weekend, and a handful of us drove up to Lake Tahoe to celebrate with her and her new husband James. This is her several hours before she hit the craps tables.

OK, pretend you’re at my house. And then I’m all, “Hey! Do you want to see the super-sweet stuff I got in Argentina?” And you’re all, “Yeah!

And then we braid each other’s hair! Unless you’re a guy. In which case, I totally love guys like you.

-It’s not the low road either, Goldilocks.
-It is the middle way. (heart)
-It’s the bathroom, guys.
