i was called a wino last night
(or, technically the night before last)because i kind of am a wino
i was sitting on the floor of one of my dearest friend's attic
surrounded by a few more of my dearest akron-friends,
and we were talking about grad school
or maybe wallace stevens
and beach house was playing
or maybe mazzy star
and i was on like my fifth glass of room temperature wine
we had just bought at the local grocery store,
along with a block of colby cheese and orange milano cookies,
and my friend was pouring something white into my glass
and told me to tell her "when"
and i waited until it was practically at the brim
and someone laughed and said "wino"
but i didn't even attempt to be offended
because i kind of am a wino
i am also the new owner of a macbook pro,
which is absolutely fantastic.
when all my friends started using macs a few years ago and i didn't
i used to say it was because i liked my technology
clunky, complicated, and non-trendy
but after my laptop died on monday i decided to just give in
because the shit with the PC was getting ridiculous
and i'm oh so grateful that i don't have to deal with it any more
i am also grateful for
shopping trips with my mom + brother,
and the cold + fresh november weather in ohio,
super soft sweaters and grilled cheese sandwiches,
dark blue nail polish and urban outfitters free shipping,
netflix, friendship, baby swiss cheez-its at one in the morning,
coming home for thanksgiving,
and the fact that sidney crosby is playing
after the longest ten months ever
and already proving why he's the best hockey player in the world
after only two games back.
in true thanksgiving cliche-ness, what are you thankful for?
