On "This group is advocating for a Trader Joe's"

Come join the group!

Also for the record, I hope that this at least opens up a dialog with the developer about what kind of retail tenant would actually benefit the community. But the Trader Joe's angle gets the people talking!

On Week Disliked

Eh, I got my heat turned back on. You really don't appreciate things like indoor heating until they are taken away. But I have a generally pleasant relationship with existence. Sure, I'm not totally grooving on love or work right now, but just being here is kinda fun.

On An Oral History Of Gawker, By Reddit

It was instrumental in catapulting Julia Alison and that crazy boyfriend guy of hers to fame and fortune.

On Ask Polly: My Mom Keeps Guilting Me About Visiting For Christmas!

@allyzay Yeah, the advice here is very much catering to this (seemingly insufferable) mother's wishes. This guy is an adult. How about he invites the mother and her husband to his house for Christmas, where drinking and smoking is allowed/encouraged? They would decline and feel self-righteous about it. He is asking for permission to do the same. Permission granted.

On "Negroni Season": The Fan Fiction

"I'm not drunk, I've been drinking! There's a difference," he said as he stuck his head out of the cab window and inadvertently rolled it up on his head.

Oh wait...I actually did this :-(

On Closure Of Local Watering Holes Is Merely Part Of The Circle Of Life, And It Moves Us All Through Despair And Hope, Through Faith And Love, Till We Find Our Place On The Path Unwinding In The Circle (The Circle Of Life), And Besides Which, When Was the Last Time You Went There Anyway?

Old-ish (what is "old" anymore?). Not sad. These are just places that were there for a long time. Not particularly noteworthy except perhaps Max Fish in the beginning, when some cool, semi-famous people used to hang out there.

On 21st Century American Citizens Still Being Forced To Use Lotus Notes

Oh, God it sucks. I really don't understand why these places don't just switch to Google Apps.

Goes to show you that for all the libertarian fawning over the private sector, it is often way more backward and wasteful than the government.
