go ny!

06Feb08

so. as the entire free world knows, the giants won the super bowl in an especially fist-clenching, nail-biting game this past sunday. i’m not a sports fan, but i was rooting for the patriots (unlike most everyone else i’m surrounded by, so i’d better keep my mouth shut; i don’t want to get my ass kicked). i have especially fond memories of another new england victory, back when i was living in boston. i showed up at this particular super bowl party too late to actually catch the game, but i was swept up in boston’s victory dance. out in allston, we all poured into the streets, where people were screaming, cheering, lighting bonfires, jumping atop buses and doing little booty-dances…

super bowl.

super bowl.

bostonians are somewhat insane. god i love them.

now the streets are ridiculous, and my office is just a block away from city hall, where the celebration parade ended up and speechifying occurred.

god i hate crowds.

bah humbug.

but i’m doing my own little victory dance. a blogging position i applied for at nerve.com during the course of my internship is finally kicking off, starting next week. not only will i be able to write to my heart’s content about home goods i wish i could afford for myself (sort of a running wish list i can always refer back to), but i’ll be bringing in an extra couple hundred dollars a week for my efforts! hurrah!

check out the faux-blog i included in my application.
