Anonymous asked: i'm a relatively new follower. i was wondering how long have you and your gf met, been going out and how old both of you are?
We actually met on Tumblr when she asked me to proofread some writing she was submitting to a competition. Our first date was about 14 months ago. She is younger and better looking than I am. I am taller and have a better grasp on the infield fly rule. We are both freakishly smart and hilarious.
I can only tell you what worked for me on the girlfriend front:
DO be overly opinionated.
DO post way too much about Bob Dylan and the SF Giants.
DO post unflattering pictures of yourself.
DON’T be physically attractive.
In Seinfeldian terms, Costanza Logic.
I’m sure others here can give you some great advice!
I wanted to share the secret to finding awesome girlfriends on the internet.

One thing that drives me crazy is when people complain about a TV show being spoiled for them. Everyone has had a TV show or movie or book spoiled for them and no one is denying how much it sucks, but the whole point of watching a show in real time is so that you can share in the collective…
I concur. Years ago, I was on a date at a drive in movie. We were seeing Star Trek 2. Right near the end of the movie, my date wanted a Diet Coke. When I said I wanted to watch the end of the movie first she said, “Everyone knows Spock dies.” While I didn’t appreciate it at the time, this became my template for handling spoilers. Spoil hard and fast without remorse.
Rapper Andre Johnson severs penis, jumps off building, but survives -
iusedtobehusky:Rapper Andre Johnson severed his penis and jumped from a Los Angeles apartment building early Wednesday, police said.
"Johnson was seriously injured" it’s like he was destined for this?
Andre continues to teach even without music. If you sever your um, Johnson and want to end it all, find a building taller than two stories.
Texted my sons to see if they were still at the Giants game in the 11th inning, four and a half hours in. They texted back this. Raised right! Rally caps even!
Happy 82nd birthday to Loretta Lynn. I’m a big fan of both Loretta and Photoshop so I thought I’d post her current publicity shot.
I kid because I love, Loretta. Do another record with Jack White!
