On How to Behave on Your Online Date: A Bartender’s Perspective

@raised amongst catalogs I recently had a really fun and engrossing conversation/Jenga game with a person at a bar after my ?th drink (I had been to a gig and then a pub crawl beforehand) and I literally remember nothing about him/her, what we talked about, or anything other than the sensation of having fun and a dim image of my hands holding Jenga bricks. Who knows, I could've met a wonderful friend/potential partner that night, if it wasn't for that nth drink.

Just home from work and feeling inexplicably glum. Not even listening to "Fergalicious" is helping. :?

@Katzen-party Two slightly more off-beat things you could do are go to St.Michan's Church where you can go into their crypts and rub a mummified body for luck, and visit Marsh's Library, an C17th library in the grounds of Patrick's Cathedral where they have cages in which they used to lock up readers to prevent them stealing the rare manuscripts.

On This Is a Goodbye Post

@S. Elizabeth

Goodbye Mallory
Though we never knew you at all
You had the wit to endear yourself,
While commenting at The Awl
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
You set them all on fire
While your Ghost texts brought you fame

And it seems to me you lived online
Like a hairpin in the wind
Demonstrating water-drinking
As the rain sets in,
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
The hairpin tumbled down before,
Your legend ever did

Nicole Cliffe was tough
The toughest mom you ever knew
Choire created a superstar
With Classic Trash and Doctor Who
Even when you left us
Oh the comments still hounded you
All the Pinners had to ask
Was what books to read anew?

And it seems to me you lived online
Like a Hairpin in the wind
Ragging on Sorkin’s Newsroom
As the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
The hairpin tumbled down before,
Your legend ever did

Goodbye Nicole and melis
Though we never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourselves
While those around you sobbed
Goodbye Nicole and melis
From the young commenter in the 22nd row
Whose grief has taken the form of a with
That looks…like… Marilyn Monroe

*sob*
