I think tiny hamsters in votive holders are cute. However, I would not advocate using a hamster as a candle.

On On Lena, On Rihanna, On Kimye: The Very Necessary Death Of "Vogue"

@Gef the Talking Mongoose I am weirdly fascinated by the small one-Kourtney. She is affectless. It's almost to the point where I wonder if she might be a secret serial killer. (But yea, Khloe is the most interesting and sort of "real". And I base this on VERY few viewings of the show, so don't judge).

On Wait, You Have A Lot Going On In Your Life Too?

I am frightened that Balk and I are kept up late in the night, worrying about the same things.

On Murder In Los Angeles

All of this is very sad, but the final footnote about the "General Hospital" fan club is what finally did me in.

On Who Makes The Nazi Dinners?

"Jon Boorom, a member of WWII Historical Re-enactment Society Inc. and owner of the Lakeville Barbers, says he was at the December event depicted in the photo, which he likened to "a Star Trek convention but for WWII enthusiasts."

Just the kind of man you'd trust with a razor and your neck.

On You Are What You Tweet

Lazy question...I wanted to try this, but what does it mean when an app can "post tweets for you"? Whenever I see that I get nervous. What type of tweets?
Mine is probably boring anyway: HOCKEY, hockey, CATS, traffic.

On We Won't Be Together Much Longer

At a Window

Give me hunger,
O you gods that sit and give
The world its orders.
Give me hunger, pain and want,
Shut me out with shame and failure
From your doors of gold and fame,
Give me your shabbiest, weariest hunger!

But leave me a little love,
A voice to speak to me in the day end,
A hand to touch me in the dark room
Breaking the long loneliness.
In the dusk of day-shapes
Blurring the sunset,
One little wandering, western star
Thrust out from the changing shores of shadow.
Let me go to the window,
Watch there the day-shapes of dusk
And wait and know the coming
Of a little love.
