I was never good at subtlety.

So I’ve got a question.

Speaking theoretically, let’s say you had a habit of making completely ridiculous resolutions at roughly two-month intervals that resulted in much debauchery and somewhat unorthodox behaviour on occasion. And let’s just say that a completely unprecedented incident occurred, and you actually met someone who you felt strangely compelled to see again because they seemed like the type of person who might appreciate somewhat orthodox behaviour on occasion interspersed with conversations about, oh, I don’t know. . .music and albatrosses? So you went out on a limb, and actually called them, thinking that they might be interested in drinking beer on your roof one night. But let's say that for whatever reason, they didn’t return the message.

What would you do? Would you lament the fact they hadn’t returned the call? Or would you get over it at roughly 3:48 p.m. on a Thursday afternoon?

Personally, I think I’d opt for the latter.

(Or would you lose all sense of decorum and write a strangely personal and possibly creepy post on your blog?)

This is all theoretical, of course. Because you know, I’m just wondering. For absolutely no reason.


  1. Theoretically speaking, I'd hold out a little longer. Because they may be busy with their work or what have you. But don't go past 3:57 p.m. on a Thursday afternoon.

    personally, i like junior's more rational point of view up there. while some may look at a slow response as no response at all, i'd have to put the blame on not finding more than 2 minutes at a time to put together in the last couple of days for that return call, coupled with the fact that you do seem worthy of more than two minutes, i'm not gonna lie. that being said, and it thankfully still only being wednesday, i think i'm going to go place a certain phone call right now, for two reasons. first, to demand an entirely seperate post apologizing for questioning my intentions in a public forum. and second, because i always had the intention to call.


  3. i was going to point out the fact that this guy is obviously going to read this. and secondly that he might think you are a complete nutter, for posting this, knowing he reads your blog.

    but the fact that he did read it and is now calling you is fucking priceless!

    i don't know whether to call you a genius, or a crazy woman.

    i love it.
    i think you should have stuck to the resolution of not posting about your personal life. but that's just me.

    Little from column A, little from column B!

  5. Omg... dunno what to say... Nice pic though Jess. I just noticed.
