in bed with emma

i know i've said this 100 times before, but i REALLY might make this a standard type of entry. especially if it's the morning after going to a pre-new year's party and i'm too comfortable in my bed to go sit at my desk like a true writer/typer.

In Bed! With Emma (and a cup of Joe)

as i sit/lay drinking my cup of delicious vanilla hazelnut coffee from einstein's (we met in college and have been inseparable ever since), i want to give you 3 things to consider today:

1) getting away with walking around completely naked with your windows wide open is SO much better when you live on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 20th floor of your apartment complex. there really is slim to no chance you're going to be spied on or caught in your birthday suit. it's much more freeing. so, if you're secretly an exhibitionist at heart like yours truly, consider this next time you move.

2) if you have crazy, quirky habits that you have to convince yourself are normal, it's okay. and you ARE normal by trying to make yourself believe you're normal. i know it's been said, many times, many ways, but: weird is so much better than boring. i'd rather be lady gaga than calista flockhart, ya know? i'd rather eat a chipotle burrito than a plain, standard taco with just meat and cheese. i would rather be known for writing crassly and absurdly than for writing empty, methodical essays. YOU GET IT?

3) i think my eyelashes fall out more frequently than is considered normal, which is really depressing seeing as though i don't have thick, luxurious lashes to begin with. shit.

that's all. just 3 things at a time. i don't want to overload your brain like i do to mine on a daily, minute, second basis.

enjoy your day!


  1. Does a weird person think a plain person is weird? I do.

  2. I can't agree more with the whole idea of living up high and getting to go totally free. Is it weird though that I still feel comfortable even when I'm pretty sure my neighbors could see me if they wanted, since a.) I can see clearly into their condo and b.) every light is on and the windows are wide open? Does it make it even weirder that I'm pretty sure my brother is the post above mine and I am talkin about walking around naked?

    Love you and your blog!!

  3. jake - yes. they do and if they don't, they should. plain people are not only weird but incredibly frightening and confusing.

    jenna - that's jake runey, not jrepp. so, no worries about talking about being naked. and i TOTES agree with you that even though some people may actually be able to see into my apartment somehow when i'm walking around with no skivvies on, i still don't care. it's like, whatevs! free peep show? love YOU and love that you are such a fan. :)!!!

  4. i know your eye lashes fall out. maybe you should try latisse? its not like there are any crazy side effects or anything....


  5. i honestly think the most attractive thing about some is their condifence. walking around bare ass may be the most confident thing you can do. so surprise the neighbors all you want! why the hell are they looking anyway?

    well, i suppose id look too.
