Not really for the insurance purposes. Moreso to teach a lesson, J. Walter Weatherman style. Tonight I came from work at a very, very late hour (think Colbert Report repeats and Girls Gone Wild commercials) to find my front door wide open and everyone asleep inside. Now, I'm accustomed to my front door to never be locked when I come home, but having it wide open was a new one.
I'm pretty passive agressive, so I was thinking of leaving a note on the door along the lines of, "Lock before you walk" OR "Lock Me, Amadaeus" but I couldnt find any tape. Or paper. Instead I decided that I would just steal fucking everything. How awesome of a surprise would that be for my roomates to wake up to?
Of course I decided against it. I'm a pretty lazy dude and it seemed like alot of work, plus it sounded like a pretty insane exagerrated way to react.
Speaking of insane exagerrations....
I was cruising PerezHilton.com for all my latest interpretations on the celebrity life by a flaming gay man, who is neither a celebrity or a Hilton (and whose name always reminds me of Pez) only to find this:
"One of the NY Daily News's gossip scribes, Lloyd Grove announced in his column today that he is leaving the paper.
For his parting words, the columnist wrote:
Let's make it short and sweet -- and, most of all, unsnarky. This is my final Lowdown column for The Daily News. For the past three years, I've been privileged to work with top-notch journalists and generous colleagues at a great newspaper. I'll miss it -- and them. I'm almost, but not quite, ready to tell you about the next gig, which I expect will be as fun and interesting as this one has been. Here's hoping you'll check it out."The glaringly insane hyperbole being, "I've been privileged to work with top-notch journalists". First of all, you work at the NY Daily News. C'mon dude, stop living a lie. Second of all, GOSSIP COLUMNISTS ARE NOT JOURNALISTS. These self gratifying elbow rubbers piss me off to no end. It takes zero literary skills to become a gossip writer (OK, you need to know how to alliterate and possibly rhyme). In fact you don't even need to know or be around any celebrities to post a gossip column (My ex-roomate Ryan wrote the greatest gossip column for our old blog and he's never even met Ayla Brown OR Al Jefferson)
Anyways, I'm ending my rant, and moving on with a few issues.Issue #1
I was recently alerted to a fantastic 'Craigslist Missed Connection' posting by old friend Lauren C. who claimed that this post was "ridiculous and kind of insulting, and needed to be shared with someone".
Here it is:
I was recently told that, "your blog is the funniest blog i've ever read" by good pal Gunshot Clark (I'm taking it with a grain of salt because the only other blog Gunshot reads is the Huffington Post). But, it got me thinking. I am such a blatant attention whore and I have no idea if anyone reads this blog other than my Mom. And since I can't figure out how to add a site tracker, I would love comments from everyone on every post. If you want to keep your identity hidden, that's fine. All I'm asking is for you to boost my self esteem. Thanks, in advance.
