I am drunk on Tumblr for (I *think*) the first time. (For the record, drunk for me is possibly two and a half glasses of wine—the restaurant-issued, “yes, we’re adhering to legal volumes” size. Getting me toasted is very inexpensive.) My roommate moved in yesterday. I broke my favorite wine glass (it was shaped like a daffodil) and I don’t care.
I’ve been in Chicago for less than two months, and I’m making just enough to keep myself here (which is okay for the time being), I have a boyfriend who thinks and reads and (so far) genuinely doesn’t seem to mind that I’m completely uptight sometimes, sings songs with me and laughs at the inane things I say (and I never know what he’s going to laugh at, so I can’t fake it), and you guys, I really fricking like him. Maybe it’s the Seven Daughters wine talking (people: that shit is strong), but I feel like things are sort of okay.
Remind me that I’m going to work tomorrow at 11:30. It would super duper suck if I forgot.
Oooh, I know. iPhone alarm.
Tumblr iPhone posts are different from computer tumblr posts in the following ways:
1. They’re shorter. It’s really annoying to sit there and type out complex thoughts using your thumbs. It can be a slightly entertaining thing to do when sending a text message (I enjoy sending texts that use words in their un-abbreviated format, with proper punctuation. I wait for the day when I can send a text message with a footnote and APA citation), but it gets really tedious when your sole purpose for having downloaded the Tumblr app to your phone is to be able to Tumble without going through the rigmarole of turning on a real computer and admitting that you’re committed to insomnia for the long haul, and discover that you’d be achieving more satisfactory results by writing in your actual journal.
2. I spent so long on number 1 that I forget what number 2 is.
3. When you post on iPhone and you write about posting on iPhone, auto-correct changes iphone to iPhone so that it becomes etched into your memory as a proper noun and in future posts you feel guilty posting iPhone as iphone, and will never be able to think of it as a non-brand, like kleenex (Kleenex) or dumpster (Dumpster), thus being forced to appear as though you have brand loyalty.
4. If you’re not completely on the ball, auto-correct can make you look really dumb. I kind of want to do a post and instead of fixing my typos, let auto-correct fill in what it thinks I should be writing. It could end up like Tumblr iphone (I did it! I did it! Even though spellcheck is telling my I’m wrong (but what does spellcheck know, it even underlines “spellcheck” (Oh. Maybe because it’s actually hyphenated. Spell-check. Shit.))), except auto-correct won’t fill in the blanks with potty humor language (although, Apple Geniuses, I think that would be a HILARIOUS April Fool’s joke).
I have deliciously exciting updates to incorporate into such scintillated reads as the Criminal Trial Manual and the Social Security Disability Claims Manual. Luckily, I have approximately 900 Vlogbrothers videos to keep me company while I do it.
Also…I’m thinking of amending (NOT CHANGING—AMENDING) my blog title again.
