    AWWWWWWWW it’s so cute! i thought it was a tarsier at first because of the huge eyes…but i guess not? it’s a horton plains slender loris.
this is the first time that it’s ever been caught on camera. only been seen 4 times total since 1937 when it was discovered in sri lanka.
but deforestation is destroying their natural habitat and turning the forest into a bunch of small islands, separating the loris(es? idk what the plural is) from their partners. so they can’t move between the islands, mate, breed, or anything. which is not good news for the future of the species :(

    the big apple

    so i was walking along broadway towards times square (to go to this japanese cafe between 5th and madison) last night with my roommate when, all of a sudden, this guy around our age just starts walking next to us and asks, “hey. do you know why new york’s called the big apple?”. we shrugged since we had no idea, and he thought it was funny since “no new yorker actually knows the answer to that question”. but lucky for us, he knew! and would be able to enlighten us! =oooo apparently, new york (times square specifically) used to be filled with apple trees, and that’s why it’s called the big apple. (silence)

    then the guy asks how long we’ve known each other (a year) and thinks it’d be amusing to ask if we share the same fragrances or anything since we’ve been friends for that long. but wait! “you two clearly aren’t best friends though! since if you were, you would be looking at each other right now. BUT THERE’S NO EYE CONTACT.” by this point, we were both like wtf o.O so my roomie tells the guy that we’re leaving (towards 7th, which is the opposite way we need to go) and then the guy says, “this was fun! let’s continue this another time! how about you give me your number?” …awk silence before we both say no, and then my roomie asks, “what?” pretending not to have heard him the first time. so he asks AGAIN. using the same exact words. and gets rejected once again. while he is still smiling his creepy smile. (so he really got rejected like 4 times. not 2. lawl)

    and then we start walking away towards 7th (and office depot) and we see that he’s behind us! and we’re slightly creeped out but it’s alright since he’s “not following us! i’m just going to office depot because it’s awesome!” ……then we ran away. and ended up walking like an extra 3-4 blocks since we had to circle around to avoid the guy. BOO THAT WHORE.

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL in what world would this attempt to pick up girls work??? also, that is NOT the reason why NY is called the big apple. no one really knows, but his explanation isn’t even on the wikipedia entry on the big apple, so WHAT AN UBER (but super duper amusing and hilarious) FAIL.

Flutter all through the night
And we can blow the clouds around
This paper hanger skyline
Summer smile again
And you can disappear
But I'd rather be here
