IJMM Strike One, and Some Dating Tips for Men

November 30, 2010


The million dollar date has been had, and lo, it hath failed. As I said on Twitter: To recap, I didn’t like him but I’m kind of annoyed that he didn’t like me. I did wear a piece of arugula on my boob for part of the date, until he pointed it out, so maybe […]

November 26, 2010


I had a great day with Lieu today, and that’s the problem.  All the time I spend with him is good for me because I love him; I get to be near him, and smell him, and hug him hello.  And in a way, I get to relax; I’m the quietest version of myself with […]

What a person’s domain name says about them: I live way out in the Virginia suburbs, perhaps not in my mother’s basement, but […]

I Read Craigslist So You Don’t Have To

August 8, 2010


That last post was a little bit…weepy.  I thought it might make me feel better to mock other people for a while, and catalog their imperfections instead of my own (I have my whole life to do that, and you should see my drafts folder!) (Thanks for all the comments and emails too, by the […]
