Who’s Your Daddy?

Is it just me or do the girls on the left look a little vacant? (never mind the grinning automaton in the background…) [Toby Keith lyrics = 1]

You Take My Self, You Take My Self Control…

R.I.P. Laura Branigan. Click here to download a club remix memory. (MP3 available for 1 week) [Laura Branigan lyrics = 1]

We Eat Ham and Jam and Spam a Lot.

Yay!! So, our good friend (and lighting electrician) Karen just got a job on the crew of Spamalot, the stage musical version of Monty Python’s Search for the Holy Grail. We here at are very excited by this as it means that Karen will be here in Chicago for the better part of October […]

Can we make it better?

This entry brought to you by Betsy. Okay, I think I am almost able to form a coherent sentence about Michigan but my coherence is generally in question these days to begin with so keep your fingers crossed. In case you didn’t pick up on this small fact before I left for the promised land […]

A Weekend in the Country

We know you’ve been waiting anxiously for this. Enjoy. [Stephen Sondheim lyrics = 1]

Oh! Carol, I Am But a Fool

Back to Life, Back to Reality

So, it’s been brought to my attention by a loyal reader that has been a little slow lately. Perhaps, loyal reader, perhaps. The staff certainly did enjoy the blog-stylings of Betsy during her two-week run here (and we’re looking forward to her Michigan post in the next week or so), so it’s possible that […]

You are distracting me, from all other activity

It looks like my two weeks are up. I really want to thank the lovely web-mistresses and organizers of the Pride Weekend Scavenger Hunt for allowing me these two weeks of uncensored blog privileges. Although, looking back I’m thinking a little censoring might not have been a bad idea (see preceding post). Thanks to everyone […]
