Jane the Virgin

I read about this sitcom on the airplane - it's a modern day redo of a telenovela, super popular in both Spain and Latin America.

A modern day telenovela in which its protagonists sit around eating sandwiches watching an actual telenovela on TV?  That's too meta for the CW, even.

Sock Monkeys on Socks: Meta-Monkey-Socks

Self explanatory, I feel. #sockmonkeys
Thanks Becca, who adds: "In case you're looking for material, I once bought you socks with sock monkeys on them because they were meta-socks but then they got lost in the depths of Rushab's car and I never found them again. So here's a picture that I found on the internet of sock monkey socks."

Dammit, Rushab's car!

The Snapchat Ghost

He's a ghost.  He's The snapchat ghost in fact.

But what do you do when you are at a concert, and you see more ghosts?  Projected on the tent?

You take a snapchat photo of them and make a ghosted ghost!  And have a friend teach you how to make pretty snapchat drawings.



PS. Since you asked, I'm pretty sure a screenshot of a snapchat, which I took to procure the above images, is fairly meta as well.  Yep.

Meta Halloween Costumes

It's October, so you know what that means: time to start brainstorming extensively and angsting aggressively about halloween costume ideas.

Is it going to be a hot October or a cold October?  Am I going to need to find some way to integrate a warm coat into my costume without totally ruining the look?

The list of big important questions goes on.

One such question is, of course, how do you make and wear a meta halloween costume?  You dress up as a costume of a costume, of course!

Ideas include:

  • 1.  a costume of a slutty halloween costume; (just do google image search "slutty halloween costumes" for brilliant inspirations)
  • 2. an "ironically un-sexy Halloween costume, being warn ironically of course," 
  • 3. and why not, "a basic bitch dressed up as ebola for halloween this year."
The hard part here, I think, will be convincing people that you are trying to be meta.  Let me know how it goes.

A Meta Gchat Conversation

I have a lot of catching up to do.  Here's a fun tidbit about the meta-ness of friendship, so wise for a gchat conversation:

Divya: friendship is just meta-mentorship
 me: happiness is a very outstanding goal
