If you were to visit me, you’d be offered…
  • A cup of tea either hot or iced, but always freshly brewed
  • Food. Lots of it. 98% would be homemade!
  • As many tv and movie recommendations as you could handle
  • Scintillating conversation on the topic(s) of your choice: nothing’s too low brow or frivolous at my place!
  • Game play on either electronic consoles or boards or with cards

Et tu? What awaits a guest at your place?

SO I haven’t discussed this much on here … but …

I’m moving to LA at the end of next month. I was hoping you all could provide me with some of your favorite LA tumblrs. (You don’t, of course, need to mention GravyHolocaustSticks! You know I already follow him. And sadly, by the time I make it to LA, Stabby will be an NYC tumblr!)

I’d like to request that we really think about how we use the term ‘love triangle’

It usually implies that there are three people, and each has an interest (that may or may not be requited) in one of the others.

It seems like lately that term is used to describe one person (A) being pursued by two other people (B & C). A may be interested in either/both B & C, or neither. I don’t think this is really a triangle. If A is a point, and B & C are points, there are two lines created. One goes from A to B and the other from A to C, but there is no line between B & C. At best this is a love angle.

It’s become common to refer to this as a love triangle, maybe even accepted, but I don’t think it’s correct. And if you describe this situation as a “love triangle” be prepared for your inaccuracy to cause a lot of confusion.

I’m totally down with calling that a love vertex 

Yes, see, love vertex. I can get behind this. Shit, I am behind this!

On Monday, two days after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher murdered his girlfriend and then committed suicide, I wrote about domestic violence and the NFL. In that post, I looked at a San Diego Union-Tribune database of NFL arrest records and searched for incidents domestic violence or sexual assault. I found that 21 of 32 NFL teams, at one point this year, had employed a player with a domestic violence or sexual assault charge on his record.
I swear a small, drunk troll lives somewhere within me

And despite being stone cold sober, that drunk troll makes sure I walk into every wall, door, door frame and piece of furniture I possibly can.

This guy makes some awesome stuff.

There are so many famous people who wouldn’t have even taken a photo with the girl, let alone picked up the lunch tab for her and her group of friends.

Okay, yes, Taylor Swift’s music absolutely sucks

But, you guys, she gave a total stranger $90 to go with her (seven or so) friends to lunch on said stranger’s birthday. There’s really no reason to mock her. Not for that at least. Mock her for her shit music.
