nicken: Maybe you saw our critically acclaimed production of Oedipus the Tyrant. Maybe you didn’t. Maybe you’d be interested to know that we’re putting up a staged reading of Antigone from the same translation at El Cid this Thursday? Maybe you don’t care about any of that, you’re only interested in having cool drinks with cool people at a cool place. Either way, we’ve got you covered. Drinks,...

Things Not To Do
Unsolicited Advice From Heidi Garvin: Don’t charge into elevator doors that have opened without you pushing an elevator call button. There is someone getting out of it, you idiot. Don’t ask someone out by inviting them to your comedy show - or worse - the improv/comedy class that you teach, ESPECIALLY on Valentine’s Day. Don’t break up with anyone over the phone -...
When I walk by my boyfriend’s desk at work and he is not there, I often leave a cute/romantic post it note on his desk. Most recently, I left him the following note: “I just farted in your chair. Love you!” Greatest girlfriend? I THINK SO!

wilwheaton: America, I am disappoint. (images via The Great Orange Satan)
This weekend I’m gonna drive to the homeland (4 hours over the mountains, and through the fields of Central California), blast some awesome/terrible tunes in the car and sing at the top of my lungs (when I’m not making phone calls to IMPORTANT people (i.e. long distance lady friends)). I’m gonna by a lotto ticket when I stop for gas and get a frappuccino and get WILD under the...
Turkey Legs! Meat on a Stick! From Nature!
Drumsticks are the original kebabs. And a turkey drumstick is the king of them all. This may be the greatest photo of me ever taken: Nope. This is: This is what a happy family looks like:
Business emails with the entire message in the subject line and only put “thank you, from so-and-so” in the body.
How My Office Celebrates Cinco de Mayo
That is what a five pound burrito looks like. And that is what I look like eating a third of that burrito as quickly as I can. We didn’t win. But if we had kept going after the winner was announced, we would have come in third or fourth. I did not keep going. My teammates did not keep racing, but they kept eating. The three of us combined ate five pounds of burrito and 5 jalapenos. ...
In Which I Make a Poor Decision
Tomorrow I am eating more than a pound of burrito. I am on a team in an office eating competition in which teams of 3 must eat a FIVE POUND burrito and six jalapenos. I am bringing Pepto Bismol with me to work.
I ride elevators far too often during my work day and it makes me wish someone would establish some sort of elevator etiquette book of rules. It should include the following: First one on = last one off No heavy perfume or cologne Don’t talk to me unless I know you or it’s after 10am and an obvious talking point presents itself. Smiles/eye contact that lasts less than 3 seconds is...

If seeing Pinky scares you, maybe you don’t want to listen to this video of the sounds that come out of her. These are the sounds Pinky makes at me 90% of the time she is in my presence. 80% of that time, she is in my lap. You would think she would just leave or get off of me, but I’m not sure if she’s figured out how that works. She instead chooses to stay put and growl...

Go to clintonpickens.tumblr.com and look at the photos he took at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Or maybe it’s a museum. Or maybe it’s both. WHATEVER. There’s a photo of him next to some statues that makes him look like he could be Ronnie and Nancy’s red-headed son and another one of him riding a horse with no legs next to Ronald Reagan. Go. Now.
