Should I move out of this godforsaken (albeit Olympic) backwater even though I kind of love it and I know all the best places and I'm afraid I'd never get weed this good again?
You should only move someplace you can imagine loving even without everyone and everything you’ve seen about it on the Internet. Maybe even especially without those people and things. Especially the people.
Do you omit your stint at Gridskipper on your resume?
Certainly not! That was the last gig when I was still glorious mere Talent, before I was seduced across the bloody gulf into malevolent Management. Such a wondrous, simple time. We didn’t have Twitter or iPhones, but we did have Sploid to get our news.
What was it like being the mayor of the Old Town Bar? I'd imagine it is like the final scene in the final episode of Cheers where Norm gets to close out the bar and turn the lights off. Were you able to get someone to scrape out the accumulated grease in the dumbwaiter?
No, but I did get to take home an evening’s worth of leftover oyster pie.
Boy would I! I’m sure he’s doing the backstroke on a sea of attractive offers. Would be happy to just get a feature out of him at least, or a playdate with Rose. I mean with my own toddler of course, not with me, in some perverted creepy way.

Well, I have a very logical mind… First I needed to determine if there were actual girl scouts… If there were, then I would need to know how old they were… If there weren’t, the age factor doesn’t come in to play.
I am fully behind Rep. Randy Neugebauer’s explanation that he did not shout “Baby killer!” at Rep. Stupak during the health care debate: rather, he shouted “It’s a baby killer!”, referring to the health care bill. Just like when a cop started beating me for yelling “Asshole!” as he walked by, when in fact I had yelled “It’s an asshole!”, referring to his anus.
I want to not hate on St. Patrick’s people, because the “amateur hour” dig comes from some kinda reverse-reverse elitist snob ironic drunk place that’s way too pleased with itself, and folks should be allowed to have their fun and all. But now green nail polish has been deployed against me and maybe I’m not as big-hearted as I’d like to believe.
Ever since I found myself with slightly more free time than usual, I’ve been thinking about going back to school to find the best accent to supplement my MFA. It’s nice to know that I now have a fallback option, should I get turned down for my Cosmetology degree at Boricua College out by Flushing Avenue.
That class will be 70% undercover bloggers. related.
