Homo Anatinus

just signed up for the Cal gym for $30 a month deducted from my pay check yessssss

The IT boy is flirting shamelessly with my boss what is this world I have entered

First day in the office at UC Berkeley and it seems to be quite fine. Mostly boring administrative things, but I’ll be meeting a lot of people and eventually will be doing more substantial work. The Dean is a lovely big gay bear and the Director is a gay goat farmer/Russian scholar. Gay office. The Dean asked me to try to not schedule him lunch meetings because he is on a diet, and I was like, gurl I gotchyo back. 

I got the job at Berkeley! thus ending this period of uncertainty and personal economic doom. I’m mostly excited because I get access to Cal’s gym and swimming pools. Oh and because it’s the exact job I imagined getting when I left Europe. and because I can stay in Oakland.

I went out to celebrate with my best friend last night, who is equally broke as I am and equally reckless with money, and now I officially have no actual money until I get paid. Hello adult life, hello new credit card debt. 

I got a job so we are drinking grapefruits

Also, this 30 Rock clip is my response to Alec Baldwin’s recent assertion in New York magazine that he is not homophobic, but just screwed over by a rabid media (or, I would argue, shitty at dealing with the media himself). The article is whiny and annoying but I do see his point about the state state of affairs (HuffPo, Buzzfeed, click/viral/buzz-mongering)  and almost feel bad for him. Almost. Let’s be real though: he might not be the king of political correctness, but he’s definitely not a homophobe. Would Tina Fey really throw us under the bus like that? 

Tina Fey perfectly captures how I deal with emotions in an 8 second clip. 

oh I am feverish and with a sore throat and I have 2.5 more hours of interviews to transcribe. life is so bleak right now.
