431: never was a cloudy day

I started Labor Day weekend by staying home the Friday night before the holiday.

an IM exchange about pete & peggy


they deserve each other

not as punishment so much as they’re both immature but in different ways

431: teaser

News from the Flip Front expects to make its triumphant return this week. But in case you’ve been wondering:

  1. I’m good.
  2. Work is pretty quiet.
  3. Yes, I saw ‘The Dark Knight’ and I loved it.
  4. The “Watchmen” trailer melted my brain into a puddle of fangirl mush. Meaning, it was incredible, and you should see it, too.
  5. Oh yeah, I love Mad Men, too.
  6. No, nothing in Time Out since spring.
  7. No, but I’m working on a book with Nick. And I’m almost done with the outline for “Bamboo”, my Asian remake of Diana Ross vehicle “Mahogany”.
  8. Yes, they loved their visit to Chicago. And no, they didn’t completely drive me crazy.
  9. Oh yeah, she had the baby. The baby looks like Joe, but has Jacinda’s eyes and chin. And her hair, too.
  10. Still can’t vote. Or drive. Or ride a bicycle. Yes, I’ll be applying for citizenship some time this year.
  11. Really? You should have come over and said hi.
  12. I always look grumpy. I do that to keep the douches away.
  13. Update! I got a producer credit in the latest video from Internets Celebrities. Check it out!
