Q:How did ur date go? What is she like? Have u made any other dates? We want details!
It went well. We drank beer and talked for a few hours and it was fun. She’s moving back home in a few weeks, so we may hang out a few times more between now and then, but anything more than that would be unrealistic.
I’ve met (and/or plan to meet) a few other people. I’ve actually got another date tomorrow night. We’re getting the best grilled cheese in LA.
Q:what would you say are your beliefs?
Q:Why would someone like you need to find someone through a dating site? Do you think it's because Internet interactions are easier for you than face to face interactions?
No, I actually find face to face interactions (especially extended [no this isn’t a sex joke] interactions) easier.
I noticed that I don’t often have opportunities to meet many new people in LA. I guess I don’t need to find someone through a dating site, but I’ve decided to give it a try for many reasons, maybe not least of which, I am hoping to meet more people that share a lot of common interests and beliefs.
I don’t know how to answer this question and that makes me feel uncomfortable, which means one of two things.
1. It’s a philosophical question deliberately designed to make people re-examine how they understand the world…
2. It is the sort of question that includes a paradox, or at least a false assumption about the person to whom it is being asked.
If 1, asking what kind of pizza is my favorite doesn’t just force me to consider the sort of pizza I like the most, it forces me to unpack my thoughts and feelings about what pizza is and what it means to have a “favorite.”
If 2, asking what kind of pizza is my favorite is not entirely unlike asking a parent which child is their favorite, or a child which Lego block is their favorite. The good parent loves each child fully even if differently. The child loves the opportunity a pile of blocks offers and the excitement of creation. Any one block alone would be silly to enjoy more than the others. A single Lego is useful; LEGOs are a passion.
So, what is my favorite pizza?
Whichever one I am currently eating is my favorite… though I would go out of my way to enjoy a buffalo chikin pizza.
Q:Can you turn me into one of your comix? I would like to be a comic instead of a person
I would consider putting you in one, but I can’t turn you into a comic unless you come here so I can draw on you.
Q:Do you have any universal advice? I asked my dad and he told me never to pee into the wind. I appreciated that, but I don't think girls have to worry as much about that.
Be Justin Timberlake.
Q:So has this turned into an ask blog? It's just that you used to have those colored slides with quips on them and that was really cool.
I am never turning anonymous questions back on and this is why. Not because I’m being harassed, but because I can’t not respond to something like this and I can’t respond at all if I don’t post it publicly. See the problem?
To answer your question—I will still be posting that style of writing, but I am no longer updating with that sort of content daily.
Starting January 1, I will probably post new writing 10-20 times per month and some of those will be similar to the style of post I’ve done for the last year or so, and some will text posts or photos of my handwriting on napkins or whatever.
As I wrote recently, I started this blog to improve as a writer, but it got to the point over the last few months that it was more of a chore and I was posting updates just to keep up with my schedule, not because I had written something I genuinely wanted to share.
I hope you’re still interested in reading what I write, but I wish you (and everyone else) all the best and I thank you for sticking around and reading as long as you have.
Q:Your incessant pandering to your empty headed teenage fangirls is getting old. Show some substance, dude.
Thank you for your feedback. I found it thoughtful, respectful, and highly appropriate.
I am sure that you accidentally pressed the anonymous button because I can’t imagine why anyone wouldn’t want their name or face associated with those words.
I encourage you to send your comments more frequently!
Q:Don't kid yourself, it's clearly pushing those shorts out
Well, yeah. Having any penis in there at all would do that. Or a baby carrot.
Q:Dat bulge in the yellow shorts
I had to buy my first pair of seamless briefs for that play.
I don’t think that qualifies as a buldge. Maybe Braille? Something smaller?
