RENTING A HOUSE FOR COACHIZZIE

It was last week.
HUGO: Hi, I'm looking to rent a house with a few people for April 15-18.

NICE LADY: Oh, that's great. Have you seen our pictures online?

HUGO: Yes. Spacious. I want!

NICE LADY: Wonderful! How does $[trombone sound] for the weekend sound?

HUGO: [keeping my cool despite the ridiculous low rate] Absolutely.

NICE LADY: Well I'll take your name down and hold your reservation and call you back tomorrow get your card number. I'm on the road.

HUGO: Okay!
One day later.
NICE LADY: Hugo?

HUGO: ...Yes?

NICE LADY: I apologize but our rates are different for that weekend. Are you going to a ...rock-and-roll festival?

HUGO: ...Ummmm... [I'm feeling bad lying to his nice lady at this point] ...yes.

NICE LADY: Okay, it's $[TROMBONE SOUND AND PARADE SOUNDS AND CIRCUS SOUNDS AND CAR WRECK SOUNDS].

HUGO: [pale]. [pause]. NOTHAT'SFINEKTHNXBI
Old folks know what's up.

This is going to be a lot harder than usual. My friends and I usually just stay over my uncle's house near the polo fields, but I don't want that to be the case next year. I only see them during the festival's weekend and, I dunno, that's kind of weird. And exploitative. Not cool?

----

I don't know how or why, but The Bert has been going MEGA black on me. He's copied all my neo-soul collection and has been pretty obsessive over finding music that is exclusively groove-oriented lately. I NEVER saw this coming. And he isn't that impressionable of a human being. I love this, especially since we've been double dating quite extensively, and to think that live soul music (aside from just dance music) is on the agenda is kinda, like, um, always the thing I've wanted from a double-dating situation. People are surprising, man. Fuckin' ay.

#wondays is getting promotional.

The things we do for free food! We're coming to you, via promotional coasters. Heads up, servers.

THE LAW OF THE CC: The more people CC'd in an email = the less likely the email's subject is to take action.

This morning one email went from 2 people CC'd to 14. What a bunch of bologna!

This has to be 30 Rock's finest moment yet. I've replayed this at least 10 times last week. I love this clip, and I'm glad it's on the YouTube internet machine station:


I lol. And I lol and I lol and I lol...
