the engagement
In your blogger’s humble opinion, there are few better occasions for relaunching a blog than an engagement. And so, in the interest of higher traffic and making a handful of you squee, I present some stuff from the greatest trick the devil ever pulled: convincing the beautiful Miss Uy to marry me. Him. Whatever. It’s after the jump.

I have a list of about 20 hours of work I want to do to my site, because I’m too proud to start a Tumblog. In the meanwhile, here’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard in a podcast.

This post is not about Mumbai. I’m trying really hard to avoid frothing-at-the-mouth posts, so I’ll direct you to the live feed at Tweet Grid for information on that.

don draper has my back

107. Dear Don Draper, I’m single and looking to hook up with the type of girl that goes out on Halloween dressed as Mystique from the first X-Men movie or another costume that only requires body paint. What should I be for Halloween?

Merlin Mann posts a useful life hack:

Here’s a life hack.
To determine within 75% confidence whether you were incredibly frustrated at the time you named a document, project, setting, or client file: check whether the name you chose begins with the adjective, “Fucking.”

Quite true. I still have a Word document, a checklist from college of the AFI Top 100 (which we never finished) titled “GODDAMMIT SHERMAN, JUST ONE MORE YARD.doc” or something to that effect from one Eric Nies
