Ah hoi hoi nerderinos!! First up, thanks for all the comments, tweets, and posts re: the gizmodo chickadee. You’re right, clearly she is a troll journalist nerd baiting, but she just committed online suicide. She better not checkin on Foursquare anytime soon. SHEEESSHHHHH!!!!
Secondly, had something really gnarly happen to me today that I wanted to share. I was in Harvard Square getting my FIRST TERABYTE EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE!!! Like seriously!!!
I am now no longer a nerdy girl, I am now a nerdy woman!!!
Dudes, this thing has 4 stars on amazon … ANNNNNDDDDD I got it for $10 cheaper by scoring a SUPER GNARLY sale at Staples. This nerd is winning on SOOOO many levels … LOOK AT THIS THING!!!
I left Staples skipping … literally … and remembered that Cute Boy Chicago had told me to try this pizza place in Harvard Square (where Staples was).
He made a big deal out of it, and told me that we couldn’t talk again until I had tried it … it was apparently THAT amazing.
Alrite, I’m game for some pizza – it was pretty early, but whatevs. I popped on google maps, and realized I could LITERALLY throw a stone and hit this place. It was called Pinocchio’s, and was literally like 50 yards from Staples.
I walk up and order a Sicilian slice of sausage (say that three times fast!! Sicilian slice of sausage – sicilian slice of sausage – Sicilian slice of sauschwage … ah buggar). I go to pay with my debit card and the duderino goes, we only accept cards with a minimum of $7.00! Okey dokey, gimme 2 slices then and a salad for later. It didn’t make much sense since I don’t have a fridge here in the hippie hostel, but whatevs – it came out of my mouth faster than I had time to really think about it.
I order a big greek dinner salad, and another slice – BOOM! $12 and some change – and totally covered.
I sit down and eat the pizza, while reading the gizmodo post (haha) – and text the duderino.
WHOOMP WHOOMP mission complete.
I then grab a box for the rest of the pizza, and a bag for the salad and call it a day. Again, I had no idea where I was going to store this food or whatevs, but I just figured I would pick out whatever would parish and try to save as much of it as I could until the morning.
I was walking out and back into the main area of Harvard Square this guy stops me. Mind you too, I have headphones in and am a VERY fast walker. Translation: Dudes, I stop for NO ONE!!!
I’m so used to dudes coming up and being all “how you doin?” But this dude seemed different – he seemed kind, very non-Ted Bundy.
I pulled out my ear bud. How can I help you?
He motions to the pizza box, and asks – are those left overs?
I take a look at the guy … sure he was tan, but he seemed clean. I was a bit thrown.
Without thinking any further though I say, yeah! It was delicious and should still be warm. Would you like this? I hand him the box – his face LIIIGGHHHTTTSSSS UP and his friend approaches.
THANK YOU!!! He and his friend SCCCREEEAMMMM in the middle of Harvard Square.
I then realize I have a salad in my other hand – I hand it to his friend. Here, and here is some dressing. I hope you like Greek!
I swear in that moment, I thought those two dudes were going to cry. They were SO grateful.
You are amazing, he said – thank you, I replied. Many blessings to you both. Enjoy the meal!! The salad wasn’t even touched!!!
We all smiled at each other as we walked away.
See, I didn’t have to sit there and worry about how I was going to keep the food, BOOM – just like that, the universe presented me with an opportunity to help someone.
Never went without a shower.
Never went without a place to sleep.
The universe CONSISTENTLY provided me with everything that I needed. Albeit, yeah, I had to get clever a few times … it all worked out in the end. Now, it was my turn to provide, and just like that … all was said and done.
Amazing too because had he asked me for cash, I wouldn’t have given it to him – but there he was, just asking for my leftovers.
I am seriously tearing up right now writing this. I cannot BEGIN to describe to you all what a blessing this universe is and how UNBELIEVABLY abundant it is.
There is no “lack” – there is only “is” and “is not.” If you are following your path, and following your bliss – people with like energy will align and no matter what, you will always be provided for. Had I gone home another way, or gone another route our paths wouldn’t have crossed. But like energy being attracted – that was a universal impossibility.
Many blessings to you all nerderinos!!! Go … do cool shit!!! The universe TOTALLY has your back!!! Just remember though, when you get yourself back on the ground – time to give back!! 😉 😉 😉
