Yesterday was sucktastic.

I'm making myself feel better by skipping morning exercise, making myself pancakes, and reading excessive amounts of Hyperbole and a Half.

Also, I wanted to share this excellent list from Nitsuh Abebe of reasons why not to date a writer, modified from a list of reasons to date a writer. I'm still incredulous that such a list as the original existed. Some of my favourites are --

7. Writers are smart. The moment you realize this is not true, your relationship with a writer will develop a significant problem.
13. Writers will teach you cool new words. This is possibly true! We may also expect you to remember them, correct your grammar, and look pained after reading mundane notes you’ve left for us.
16. Writers communicate in a bunch of different ways. But mostly writing. Hope you don’t like talking on the phone — that shit is rough.

Check 'em all out. Read some Hyperbole and a Half. And have some pancakes.
