Life of Brian: Coat

We recently had another weird temperature surge and then dip, as you get used to with the approach of Spring and it reminded me of the Life of Brian story I’d first thought of to post. It’s silly, not very...

tragic: the blathering

I suppose it should be a given that any article starting out, “This story sounds mean.” is probably going to be mean and make someone look bad. Unfortunately a recent article on Gizmodo, “the Gadget Guide” makes its author look like a “mean girl”.

dating: there’s an app for that

The other day MM told me about this new app for the iPhone from Intelius called Date Check: “Date Check is like having a private investigator in your purse,” John Arnold, co-founder of Intelius and executive vice president of business...

He’s eyeing the exits and doing calf stretches…

A while back during a happy hour, Michael, Fredo and I were discussing the “emergency call” that you set up with a friend in advance of a first/blind date. Since Fredo and I both have iPhones, I called him and...

dating: It’s been one week…

I can handle flaky, some people thrive on being flaky while others exhibit it to such a degree that everyone else around them consciously or subconsciously works to pick up the slack. Mistakes are ignored, fatal slips are instantly forgiven...

true love? let’s check your saliva!

My distaste for eHarmony and their endless stream of sickening commercials is already well known, but a new service seems to take it one step further. GenePartner matches men and women by analyzing their DNA. I couldn’t find any information...

What’s Your Type?

I fear for the next person to ask me that question, because I will most assuredly respond, “Helvetica.” Extensis has put up Typecaster: some cute video shorts that let you attempt to (mix &) match up various typefaces and see...

Hairdresser on Fire… and everything else, too!

I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating… When the weather forecast icon is a thermometer on fire, it’s time to think about staying the hell inside that day. I’m still processing the weekend, deciding what I want to blog...

Oops! Check, please?

Well I now can’t go back to 1409 Playbill Café for about a month or so now… Justin was about 20 t-cells short and will have to undergo chemo for a week now, so understandably he was feeling pretty low....

Comfort food: Champagne and Fried Chicken

Oh, it’s been one of those days, weeks, months, lives, what have ya. I believe I shall treat myself with some champagne and fried chicken tonight. This is not normally a ritual for one, ideally it’s what I would have...

Nope, still gay!

I know I need to stop posting YouTube videos as one day they will crash and burn and leave me with a bunch of broken links, but this one’s worth it. Anyone watching “Heroes” last night (WOW!) might have seen...

It’ll have to do until I develop telepathy

I’d been IMing someone for a little while and we had a quick dinner get-together/date, they give me their phone number and say “call me sometime”. It has already been established that they keep odd hours and don’t always have...
