Yes, it’s true, I wasn’t alive for the airing of Queen for a Day, a monumentally popular television show in which women would compete with the most tragic story for hideous appliances, bedroom sets, and other sundry prizes. We may laugh now, but the show was the first major prize show, so we actually owe […]
For the outcome of my Top Secret Project, which I will hopefully be able to publicly discuss soon. We are reaching a critical and delicate point, my friends. If all goes well, all shall be revealed in the very near (and exciting) future.
One, fuck the time change. I know it’s coming, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. I’m going to spend the next week in a state of utter confusion and distress. Two, according to the New York Times, 19 million homes in America are vacant. 19 million! That’s a lot! And only about […]
So, here’s the thing. I really miss having horses in my life, because they are awesome. But I do not have the space for a horse at my house. Not even a very, very small horse. And, to the best of my knowledge, none of the stables up here offer leasing/lessons. I’m also not really […]

No news of note for y’all today, because I am still exhausted from my whirlwind trip to the City yesterday. I tell you what, I have not driven down and back up in one day in quite a while, and it is way more grueling than I remember. I guess I’m getting old. I meant […]
Local readers may have noticed a disturbance in the force, or possibly an increased police presence North of Oak Street. Shockingly, this week’s Advocate didn’t report on this piece of breaking news, but the rumour mill is at work (now that the real mill is closed, residents need something to do, you know). And it […]
Good morning, gentle readers, and welcome to 2009! I don’t know about you, but I think I am pretty much over 2008 at this point, even though I will undoubtedly date my February rent check with “2008,” just out of habit. 2008 was a pretty exciting year, what with the groundbreaking election, economic collapse, and […]
