Guest-Blogging is the New Blogging
I'm off to Buffalo today. Yup, I hear it's gorgeous this time of year (or is it Ithaca that's gorges this time of year?), so I figured I'd schedule a work trip up there 'round December. Smart, Bossman, wicked smaht.
I don't have much for youse anyway. My friend Dan's on vacation and he asked me to fill in for him on his [redacted] blog so the audience doesn't stray too far. I spent some of my night crafting a post for his readers called "Love Me Like You Love Dan," and I'll leave that for you to play around with in my absence. Hopefully I'll find a computer up there -- do they have computers in Buffalo? -- but if not, we'll meet back here tomorrow. Fuck the Sabres.
Slack Quotation of the Day: Roommate Dorsey and I like Deal Or No Deal. It's a guilty pleasure in a big way. We were watching Monday night's show yesterday when we heard an absurdly hilarious quote. A self-proclaimed "ultimate football mom" got all weepy and told our host, "Howie, ya know, with my kids' schedules, and going to school and then working, the only time we've ever all sat down together in the past year is to watch Deal Or No Deal. This is the most incredible..." and then she broke down crying. I was moved to tears.
Howie responded, "Oh wow. Wow. That's what we're about. That's why I do this job. Wow." That's why I do this job, too.
Slack Video of the Day: A cat on acid...real or not, this is awesome.
Slack Song of the Day: My friend Double J Jesse Jarnow posted live versions of 11 of the 12 new Wilco songs, so I thought I'd share. I gotta say, I didn't take to Wilco right away the way many of my friends have, but I find myself drifting to their stuff more and more these days. Ah brother, I'm becoming one of those kids...
