Apparently, after being cited by the New York Times and Dan Rather as doing a bang-up job of reporting for getting angry on air, Anderson Cooper is so cool he no longer even dresses up for work. This, my friends, is an excellent goal. I’m working on it.
Things I need/want right now:
- Two new short stories, ready by mid-October, for grad school submissions.
- A concrete list of where I want to apply to (though I’m working on this. I have a spreadsheet).
- Any kind of concrete assurance that I won’t be throwing over $500 toward getting a pack of rejection letters (this cannot be had).
- A promise from the universe that no one is going to use that “Houston, we have a problem” line on national television again about the hurricane. YOU MORONS, drop the cliches.
- Ice cream
