This post details rowdy times with my friends from Sol Food Mobile Farm. Their whole shtick is here, explained much more clearly and correctly than I’m about to.
“And that’s it.” Eliza spreads her arms the width of the bus. After months of waiting for them to arrive on the West Coast, I’ve just been given [...]
The Internet tells me today is National Coming Out Day. Which reminds me how comforted I was reading other people’s stories before I became confident enough to make the least shocking announcement of my life. (I am a gay.) Coming out is a HUGE, life-long process, so each member of the LGBTQA community has literally thousands [...]
Meeting new people through mutual friends is so ’99. The internet has thought up tons of ways to put you in uncomfortable situations. There are all levels of sites, boring and scandalous, that help you meet new people. I find Meetup.com as great way to do something fun in a casual, I only half expect you to be my new best [...]
Dear Sultry Stretcher,
Don’t tell me you aren’t feeling it too. I’m watching you. You, with your shorts and your shirt, and your deep, honest eyes.
Honestly, it’s a little inconsiderate of you to be here. I come to yoga for me; for my peace, serenity and to justify a gym membership. Sure, I’m overly [...]
My recent move has not disappointed in being an exciting, fresh chapter. And I promise to wax poetic on all my new feelings and Ikea furniture soon. But for now, I want to tell y’all about how many desserts I’ve been eating.
I can’t think of a better way to explore a new city and [...]
I move to San Francisco tomorrow and am pretty much wigging out about it. I’m all “Adventure, Ho!” and somewhat “This could go terribly wrong and you have no plan B.” Needless to say there is still a lot to be done, what with finishing this bottle of wine and choosing between which cardigans I [...]
As June charges on, the cities across our free nation that host Pride Parades explode with color, cheer and acceptance. If you’ve never been to a Pride Parade—make it a priority. They’re just about the happiest celebrations you could skip into and The. Gays. Go. Cray. Support your favorite ‘mos by whipping [...]
This month, I was lucky enough to be on a beach. I had a week there, so I decided to pound out April’s book in one, 7-day stroke. Jonathan Franzen’s “Freedom” was my ammo. 526 pages; ready, aim, fire.
So “Freedom” was a really big deal in 2010, when I got it. But then [...]
*Instructions below this little rambling
I get extremely competitive with things that are not even remotely a competition. Video games, pick-up basketball, corn hole, miniature golf and other extreme sports just don’t get my blood boiling. I’ll enjoy myself playing, but if you get heated I’ll just start laughing and
“My birthday is coming up.”
This phrase is self consciously worked into conversation the world over. If it’s a human you’re talking to, they’ll understand when you say “my birthday is coming-up,” you are also saying “and you need to give a shit or I’ll hate you.”
For some, her/his birthday is “just [...]
