Anyway, if you ever Google yourself, Ms. LaRue, and find your way here, I just want to say that I adore you! I haven't actually seen most of your work (it's way too pricey for an income-less boy like me), but I read or watch all the interviews with you I come across and I have your biography and everything. I just think you're fabulous and I hope I can be half the fabulous, brassy, ballsy, astute person you are when I'm "all growed up."
Oh, and can you hook me up with Zak Spears? He's the daddy of my dreams!
|You are intelligent, witty,|
a bit geeky and have great
power and responsibility.
You Are Sunshine
Soothing and calm. You are often held up by others as the ideal. But too much of you, and they'll get burned
You are best known for your warmth
Your dominant state: connecting
(BTW, the weather quiz has an absolutely howling error in the first question. It should be "compliment," not "complement"!)
You Were a Skunk
You carry yourself with sensuality and a flowing energy.
You have a great reputation, and you follow your own (good) advice.

Now, let's say that his correspondence-volume has decreased in the last few months, to the point that he only seems to answer every other email. And let's say that, due to the wonders of Site Meter, you know that he doesn't read your blog, either. And let's say that all this makes you anxious that he doesn't really like you and is trying to tactfully hint that he just wants you to go away.
So, saying all of this, should you take the hint and accept your exile from his inbox, or should you email him voicing your feelings and concerns, or should you just ignore it and email him as usual?

I'm a Mercedes SLK!
You appreciate the finer things in life. You have a split personality - wild or conservative, depending on your mood. Wherever you go, you like to travel first class. Luxury, style, and fun - who could ask for more?

Speaking of which, I'm kinda considering changing my blogspot address. "vulpes82" just isn't intuitive, you know what I mean? But I don't want to mess up everyone's bookmarks and links and I'm unsure if they would get redirected. Anyone have any insight or advice?

Now, ladies, if a guy came up to you and told you, "Imma beat dat pussy up," would you be like "Oh, yeah, baby!" or would you be like "Get the hell away from me you freak!"? Am I wrong in thinking it'd be more the latter than the former? 'Cause if not, you bitches is straight-up nasty!

|Your Career Type: Conventional|
You are orderly and good at following a set plan. Your talents lie in working with written records and numbers in a systematic, orderly way.
You would make an excellent:
Bank Teller - Bookkeeper - Court Clerk
Mail Carrier - Post Office Clerk - Secretary
Timekeeper - Title Examiner - Typist
The worst career options for your are artistic careers, like comedian or dancer.

I feel like I should have a clever, pornified rip-off of the fast-becoming-classic "I wish I knew how to quit you!" line, but my normally sewer-like mind is drawing a blank. Anyone have a suggestion?

Most of the time, the random strings of letters make no sense, but even that can be a bonus if one wishes to create more alien sounding words. Some of the ones I've personally jotted down include "gaerne," "ejatix," "hkeai," "sorgs," "zacrd," "sstrha," "rgisi," "txepo," "mokwup," "aphle," "nfulu," "quuet," "gimmcean," "virot," and "oywyd." Try it and see for yourself.

I'm just curious, though, if this is an unusual practice or not. Do others do this? Or do you just pick up the blog where you "found" it?

So, dear readers, what suggestions do you have? What would you like to see more of/less of? Are there topics you think I simply must tackle in that special nerdy way of mine? Also, I'm thinking of tweaking the template slightly (depending on the availability/laziness of my expert), so ideas about that are also welcome.
I'm not saying I'll necessarily take any of your advice or put your suggestions into practice, of course. This is an authoritarian regime, after all. Still, I consider myself a benevolent dictator, so feel free to suggest and critique!

As a native New Jerseyite, I don't appreciate the New Jersey bashing. I'm not saying we're the greatest in the world or anything, but we really aren't such a bad state: we've got the best tomatoes and peaches and corn, beautiful beaches, and more diners than you can shake a stick at! And those are just a few of the nice things about the old Garden State.
Plus, a lot of the "New Jersey" stereotypes (such as industrial blight, toxic waste, and mobsters) are really only applicable to North Jersey, and only certain sections of that. Yet the whole state gets brushed with the same pigment of scorn and condescension. Well, I'm sick of it! Go pick on some other state, people!

However, this item of him walking his dog, a German shepherd named Atticus and a puggle named Boo Radley (the bolded names will be significant in a second) fairly forces me to arch a wry eyebrow. Why? Because the only dogs named Atticus and Boo I've ever heard of belong to Gentlemen Who Have Bite Marks In Their Pillows (TM Lee). Just something to consider...

But, you know us homosexuals, we just can't stop sucking cock, no matter what the "straight" guys do, so maybe we're (as always) to blame. We're all degenerate sinners plotting to corrupt the world, you know.

Anyway, each show had a diva singer for entertainment. But there are classy divas and there are cracked-out divas. Guess which is which...
Mary J. Blige, NBC's chanteuse de nuit, was sensibly and chicly dressed in a white turtleneck and off-white pants suit. She sang powerfully and lustily and live.
On ABC, Mariah Carey's crazy ass was preposterously clad in some typical ho-wear consisting of a gauzy white, low-cut mini-dress, a white bra to contain the ta-tas, and a fur stole she kept dropping. She was obviously lip-synching and not doing it well at all. Looked like she was high as a kite. She must have been, to be dressed like that and not get cold.
In summary, though I know Mariah's on a comeback and all, but she's still crazy as a loon! Ms. Mary, on the other hand, knows how to work it!
