On Lucky Louie

I was surprised, and heartened, to see this story spread beyond my facebook feed. Sean Casey does great work, he finds time and homes for every kind of creature. My dog is from his shelter and several of his best dog friends are from SCAR as well. Also, VERG does amazing stuff, I'm glad they are nearby if I ever need them.

On "Bring Back Bloomberg"! Rich Horrorshows Freak Out Over Fake Snowstorm Class War In Pinhead Rag

I am sitting here at work, next to one of the most entitled, pretentious psycho coworkers you could ever imagine existing. She lives on the UES, as she constantly reminds everyone as if it's something to be proud of, and she is rattling off these gripes almost verbatim. It's amazing. DeBlasio! Snow on the streets! I walked through SNOW to get here, UGH! It's all the Republican's fault for running with Lhota! Real estate taxes! He better not try to raise real estate taxes on my condo! It would be fantastic if I was able to turn the volume down.

On "Hey Foxy!" Inside The Oil Boom's Amazing Bachelor Boom

@sunnyciegos Yes, slight tonal shift, but basically exact same story. Also, I always find these tales fascinating: creepy guy hitting on me in random place, then he called me four times/persistently. How did he get your number if you turned down the date?

On Lobstah And Crafts! A Summertime Guide To Portland (The Real One, In Maine)

Ahhh my old boss lived on Great Diamond and enjoyed the glorious commute of water taxi, land taxi, airplane, to get to work every week. If his fridge was empty, he'd jump in the canoe and catch a fish for lunch. It always sounded like some kind of Brigadoon overrun with lolling fat Labradors and dancing lobstahs.

On Things I Didn't Get To Eat (Or Drink) At The Great GoogaMooga

@Reginal T. Squirge Sooo many disposable type flip flops on dudes on the train! Bleagh! I decided in half a second I hated seeing dude feet in tiny flip flops! It looked like they were wearing their girlfriend's shoes.

On Okay, Help: What's Your Ideal Afternoon in Brooklyn for Tourists?

@stuffisthings I'm conflicted about that, too. Those are all MIIIINNNNE. No Sharing, but then I go and tell everyone about it anyway, so...

On Okay, Help: What's Your Ideal Afternoon in Brooklyn for Tourists?

Everyone has given great ideas, but do not discount Jane's Carousel at night! It is magnificant and glowing! Which makes a lovely pairing for a glass of champagne at the River Cafe. Also, the movie theater at ReBar is down the street and plenty quirky. Dumbo makes for a lovely evening stroll along the waterfront for out of towners. Noodle Pudding is an easy recommendation if you do a stroll of the Heights and then do Dumbo after dinner.

On Who Will Protect Catholics from Rick Santorum?

@jamietie Santorum has some very very strong backers with frighteningly strong ties to the Vatican. This doesn't mean that the Vatican or that the entirety of the church agrees with him, but the Vatican will let a lot slide if the money is going one way and the drivel is turned the other.

On Manhattan Traffic Advisory for the Clueless

@ericdeamer That is sort of great. That said, I went to the Yankee's ticker tape parade last time they won the World Series just to see what it was like and it was a nightmare. Drunk belligerent people corralled together with no escape except fisticuffs. And that was just the women.
