I’ve spent the last few days bashing my father and included a few other family members in yesterdays post, so I thought I’d turn the tables today and the point the finger at myself a little bit. As much as I hate to ruin the vision of perfection that you all have of me (let me have the dream, huh?!), I’ve got quite a few quirks of my own that a most people find bizarre. Some of them are even attractive to the opposite sex . . . until they have to live with it then apparently it’s grounds for divorce.
No, dear brother, I do not need your help with this. Just sit over there and shut it. Read the rest . . .
Today was one of those days. By the time I realized it was Tuesday and it was a Top 20 day, it was after lunch and I pretty much had nothing for an idea. Then I had a great idea and started in on it and got halfway through it and decided it was complete garbage. Well, not complete garbage, but it was gonna require more thought than I could put into it in a single afternoon so it’s been shipped into Draft Folder Purgatory for when I’m feeling slightly more witty.

I’d hate to think that I peaked with Craigslist. It’s enough to make one want to kick puppies.

After much plotting and scheming and finally a re-write of my original ad, D is for Deviant managed to get my personal ad posted on Craigslist for me yesterday. We still have no idea what allowed them to post this one and not the other one, but here is the ad that finally made it: Read the rest . . .
While my own attempt at the CPSE (Craigslist Personals Social Experiment) has thus far failed due to a seemingly random screening policy, my friend D’s attempt brought us more than we could have hoped for. There was so much to work with, in fact, that I’ve had to strip it down to the top 10 responses in the interest of length. Read the rest . . .
I’ve been bad and not made a post for 2 days. Normally this probably wouldn’t be so bad but it comes just 3 days after I promised myself I would make a post every day to get myself in the habit, and if I can’t keep a promise to myself then it must be New Year’s Day.
In reality, I had some relatives down from New York and we did a bunch of touristy shit and ate way too much and this causes lethargy and lack of motivation. Read the rest . . .
