Re: the river otters of dating or the "singled out"

so ladies, DON'T TRUST MEN WITH BEARDS. Now see, that's weird, coz I seem to find men with beards only *ever so slightly* more trustworthy. It's the ones with the carefully manicured facial topiary I don't trust, like the goatees and the Soul Patches or whatever those are called. I need a little mo...

Today I was all wistful and pathetic on the way to work, coz I take Casual Carpool to the Transbay Terminal, where a lot of homeless folk spend the night as the weather gets worse.

Well, during the campaigns the WSJ was definitely pro-bush, made painfully clear when they barred Farnaz Fassihi (thier foreign correspondent in Iraq) from writing until after the elections. We'll see if that still holds true as the dollar falls. I'm still looking for a great newspaper. Anyone read...

I saw that too. Sorry, I've got hard copy only too. (You have to pay MORE for the online subscription too! A lot more! Stupid WSJ. Did you just start reading it everyday? It's terribly pro-Bush biased.) Yeah, i noticed that, is that lame or what? I don't know that I'd typify the WSJ "pro-Bush" so m...

EM-EYE-SEE....KAY-EEE-WHY

okay, maybe this is just coz it sort of impacts my job (in a sorta legal precedent way), but is anyone else following the Disney-Eisner-Ovitz trial?

Japan has all kinds of music, some very good rock and roll and some of the best jazz I've ever heard (though I'm not a jazz afficiando by any means) But I'll miss my American music. As the Violent Femmes say, I like all kinds of music, but I like American music best. Eh, American music ain't goin' ...
