meaghano: The only dream worth having…is to dream that you will live while you’re alive and die only when you’re dead. To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what...
Coworker #1: I haven't talked to [redacted] in a year. She hasn't answered any of my emails and I don't know anything about it.
Coworker #2: You better watch out! She'll email you back in all CAPS.
Coworker #1: Well you can tell her I have no recollection of any of that. I don't know what she's talking about. As you know, I keep all my sent emails and there's nothing. Why would she send me an email about it?
Coworker #2: (meekly) She scares me.

Tina Brown: You know what buzz is?
Lloyd Grove: I want you to define it for me.
Tina Brown: Buzz, contrary to what some people think, is not something you graft onto a site. Buzz is just another word for providing interesting things that people wish to talk about. That's buzz, and that's what an editor's job is, to provide material that is stimulating, provocative, and interesting enough to make people actually want to converse about it. So if we're generating buzz, it's because we're actually appealing to what makes people involved and interested.
Lloyd Grove: That word has been most associated with you.
Tina Brown: Yes, in the case of me, they tend to call me "the erstwhile queen of buzz." In fact, I now sign my letters, The Erstwhile Queen of Buzz.
Lloyd Grove: But it's a term that's used derisively.
Tina Brown: I know it's been used derisively by people who've never been able to create any.

Coming Down With Something?
I can’t tell if I’m normal and my hands are just really cold, or if my hands are normal (which, for me, is usually cold) and my body’s way hot. Temperature hot. Also, my head feels like it weighs more than the rest of my body and it’s definitely not because there are a lot of thoughts up there right now. At the moment, it’s a pretty dense fog.

Existential crisis of the day: Yet another of my classmates is getting married. Ok, maybe it’s not existential, but I’m getting a little sick of it.

John McCain supports adoption. I’d like to point out that he’s not the one who’s going to have to be pregnant for nine months before any baby can be adopted.

Roe v. Wade
It means so much to me that I seriously teared up listening to Sen. Obama’s reasoning on whether he’d nominate a Supreme Court justice who didn’t support the decision. And I want to punch John McCain.
Obama: Smiles widely whenever McCain makes an outlandish accusation about his opponent. McCain: Smirks uncomfortably whenever Obama reasonably contradicts him, and smirks proudly at the end of pretty much all of his answers, whether they answered anything or not.
