No one’s thinking about you as much as you are. (And why you don’t need to apologize for not blogging more)

thinking about you

I look like shit I look like shit I look like shit. That’s the thought that ruined my whole evening recently. And my steak. That day, I’d been part of a photo shoot for a friend who’s a stylist and needed to put outfits on real people (read: so. not. models.) for her blog. She had pros there to do my… keep reading…

Who hangs up on people?

HANGING UP

On TV, people are always hanging up on each other. Sometimes it’s meant rudely. “You’ll see my smiling face in court.” CLICK. Sometimes it’s just a natural end to the conversation. “I gotta go.” CLICK. I’ve never been able to do this, either way.

Women on TV have sex and moisturize so much

  Three things that confound me about women on TV: 1) They are always ready to bone. And that’s all it takes. I’m talking network TV, not cable or comedy. Those show some real, awkward fumbling stuff. But on a drama, even a decent one, there’s no “Wait, wait, not ready” (note to NPR – new game show?)… keep reading…

When did you lose your sales balls?

BIG ONES

Oy. The ol’ “lemonade stand” story. You know what I’m talking about, don’t you? That cliche where every big-shot business owner’s life story includes a bit about being a “born entrepreneur”? And the evidence, every single time, is that they’d had a lemonade stand as a kid? My first reaction to that is always, “Aw, man, I wish I’d… keep reading…
