happy birthday, anne
When I was little, I was in love with Gilbert Blythe. Well, I still am I a little. He and Lloyd Dobbler from Say Anything. Sigh.

surviving in the wild
Joy: You have the measles on Oregon Trail. Erica: what? I have the measles? I sooo do not trust you to lead my wagon Joy: I let you rest and I fed you and you still got sick. Other people got over the measles, but not you. If you die, its because you’re just not strong enough to make it on the trail. Erica: or because YOU WERE A CRAPPY WAGON LEADER!!!??? I can’t believe you let me...

Me: I kind of can’t believe Spitzer hired a “mid-tier” escort Erica: what makes them mid-tiered versus high-tiered? Is it based on education and stuff? Or looks? Or…skill? Me: I don’t know, I am not a hooker
