Drove To Chicago All Things Know All Things Know

I sense a palpable clamor in the air for an update on all things Luca.

Ok, maybe it's just Stacey. And she's not really clamoring--more like politely inquiring.

Here ya go, Stace:

-The internship at Paste is going well. Actually, it's going great. They're keeping me very busy and I'm learning a lot. I was afraid that I might not be able to do everything that would be asked of me but I've learned that I can handle pretty much anything. The work environment is ideal for my particular sensibilities too. I mean, we spent the last couple of hours of work on Friday drinking beer and playing "cornhole" (a variation on the classic "horseshoe"). And when we manage to actually work at publishing a magazine that a half million people read every month, it hardly feels like work at all, and that, my friends, is the key to finding what you're truly meant to be doing.

-The little lady and I went to see "Superbad" today. It was profanely funny. I don't know what it is about high school comedies, but I usually enjoy them way more than I ever enjoyed my time in actual high school. Whether it's "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", "Napoleon Dynamite", "Can't Hardly Wait", heck, even "Teen Wolf"--I love them all. Meanwhile, I cringe at most of my own high school memories. The naive awkwardness that makes these movies compelling is also what I want to eschew from my own reminiscence. Sick, isn't it?

-Adrienne will be going to Chicago for Labor Day to visit friends and possibly scout the area for future living consideration. A lot of our friends have moved or are moving there in the near future and Adrienne is campaigning for us to follow them next year when she's finished with school. I'm not exactly sold on the idea yet but I'm keeping an open mind. My philosophy has always been to embrace opportunities when they present themselves so I guess we'll see. For now I'm excited to be where I am, doing what I'm doing.

All right, that's enough for now.
