BLOG » the blind leading the blind (part 78):


1. sometimes when your sarcasm is so advanced, people actually think you’re stupid. this happens to me ALL the time.

2. sometimes ‘buffering’ is god trying to tell you not to watch that mob wives clip on YouTube. but sometimes you have to be like ‘fuck off god.’ and press play.

3. always be a LITTLE bit fat, so the baby fat in your face gives you a youthful edge!

4. you can banter, be friends withand let the charismatic kooky guy entertain you, but NEVER choose him over the guy who loves you, would do anything for you, and who actually makes you feel safe. one is a figment of your imagination, who will lose interest in you in a heartbeat. and the other is the real thing.

5. don’t let the progression of the year STOP you from saying the best bullshit banter opener ever:  ‘happy new year!’

6. sitting next to someone while they play you a song they think you should totally hear, is always so awkward! what are you supposed to do? just sit there? look at the device the music is coming out of? bop? tap your foot? look at your lap? all of the above? it’s just too much! or maybe i’m just over thinking it. either way, i prefer listening to music alone in my car.

7.  if a dude asks you if you i-chat, it means he wants to fuck you. your dad included.

8. “If you want to do anything right, you have to put your heart and soul into it. There are always challenges, and you have to be prepared to go to the wall and be on your knees to get something done correctly, so if you don’t love something then it’s just going to feel like a form of torture with no reward. Love your work and no sacrifice will be too big or too small. My other advice is: if you want the job done right, do it yourself. Sorry to use that tired old cliché, but it is true.” – Madonna

9. always clear your computer history. even if you AREN’T up to no good.

10. try your hardest not to unnecessarily complicate your life: with people, with habits, with bad choices in general.

  1. no. 1 is so true.

  2. omg yes to #6! Especially when the person thinks you enjoyed the song and then they go on and play another one and you’re just like omg how do i get out of this…

  3. I fucking love Madonna.
    #6 can also be applied to ‘spontaneous acoustic guitar’, urgh

  4. I will print and frame this. <3

  5. #10 was just what I needed to hear. Thank you, Alexi!

  6. Had a #2 moment last night with toddlers and tiaras

  7. Hell yes #6. Just tell me the name of the song and i’ll listen later.

  8. Are you a third grader?

  9. #4- Thank you…I needed someone to confirm that for me. 🙂

  10. Hahahah Kate YES.

  11. No. 1 = Brilliant. Haven’t even read the rest but I asume it shall follow accordingly

  12. This is probably the best BLTB post you’ve wrote in a while…but when I say “Happy New Year” to people they look at me funny :/

  13. Just curious, why # 9? i dont get it.

  14. everyody who’s dated a hipster has een in the nr. 6 situation 🙂

  15. #4 = True. But I’ve found that many women just don’t find a devoted guy challenging or exciting enough. Some guys get discarded enough times to turn into withdrawn and bitter permanent bachelors. But that’s cool… the same women often find out that the exciting, challenging guys don’t find them that interesting after a while, so these women end up as bitter, spiteful divorcees.

    #6 = Stops being a problem when both parties get old enough to realize that not having the same tastes (and saying as much) is not cause for offense.

  16. YES! This is the BLTB I love! Insightful, funny, empowering, reminding you of things you know but are in denial of, for example that you need to avoid cluttering your life with people and habits that are draining and complicating unnecessarily.

  17. thank you, thank you, thank you for your number four advice. always good reading your rambles, rants, lists and so on.

  18. advanced sarcasm yes the downfall of the layman lol. always choose the guy that loves you I agree!
