Who I Follow

My friend bought a house in congress heights which I was against bc I am a snob who doesn’t enjoy anything south of eastern market. But I’m adjusting bc I want to see my friend. I think penn quarter is the answer to our problems. Roughly in the middle. Easy to get to from our group’s homes and jobs. Many restaurants we haven’t been to yet. Eventually we’ll migrate to navy yard.

I’m not totally awful. I’m going to his house in two hours. I just hate spending an hour on the train.

In the book I’m reading a young Soviet girl is describing her boyfriend as dumb by mentioning he knows only four lines of Pushkin. Oh the glorious motherland.

Yesterday I bought the Head & Shoulders Active Sport for Men* shampoo, which is the official shampoo of major league baseball and football for some reason, and now my hair smells like a cedar chest and I loooooooooove it

Yes that is seriously what it is called

I just talked at our chief of staff (not someone I am usually allowed to interact with like at all!) for like 40 minutes about a very politically sensitive project. It went fine but now I am Burnt Out on doing real brain-engaging work for the day. I just ignored two phone calls and I guess I should go home. 


Edie Falco, star of Nurse Jackie, was nominated this year for outstanding actress in a comedy series. She won for Nurse Jackie in 2010 and three times for her role as Carmela Soprano on The Sopranos. She joined us this spring to talk about addiction, parenting, and her big break.

Here’s Falco on her Sopranos audition: 

"I went in, and I just did exactly what this character should be in my mind, from my estimation — also knowing that there was no way I’d get cast because I was not the stereotypical Italian-American-looking actress, and I knew who was. There’s something very powerful about going in to just do it for the heck of it.

You know, there’s a huge lesson in there. The pain in life is contingent upon one’s expectations for the most part. … So I was calm and relaxed. … I think I got a call that day or the next day. … It was a monstrous sum of money for me at the time, and all I thought was, “I cannot believe I can pay off my student loans with one check.” … I broke out in a sweat at the size of that relief.”

The student loan crisis touches even Edie Falco.

Do you get the vibes from Danielle Haim too or is it just me?

If she is the short one then yes, I saw Haim at the Nylon Music Issue Party a couple months back and was like “hmmmmmm”. 

Disclaimer: AE does not out or insinuate or whatever closeted celebs. 

I, CHLOE, am def down to indulge in the possibility of non- heteronormativity, particularly when sipping $3 pinot while waiting for a girl to come over and explain exactly why she feels I do not appreciate her. Her idea. 

Back to Haim: there are vibes from the short one. Who knows what they mean. 

Vibes you say? I’ve been sustained by vibes for years.
