You’ll have to excuse me. I’m hungover. [insert disappointment from mother] Brooke and I had a housewarming party last night for her co-workers. Brooke’s office is 95% female, so the gathering consisted of me, Brooke and eight other girls. By the end of the night I knew all about the Fall fashion line-up, how to plan a wedding and whose arch enemies recently had abortions. It was fascinating, but not nearly as fascinating as how much they could drink. They drank like pirates. My pounding headache is impressed.
I had a whole list of things I wanted to get done today, including adding some new things to the site. I figure it’s about time seeing as how it’s been almost a year since I started it and the last time I added anything besides a post was about one year ago. But I’m moving a little slowly with this hangover, so it’ll have to wait. What you can look forward to though is some surprising new sidebar content (so surprising I don’t even know what it is yet), and some new links to other blogs. You’ll notice I already added a link there to my column on Esquire.com, which started a few months ago but I never bothered to mention assuming that the editors of Esquire would have caught their mistake by now. Like, “Wait, who’s Daniel Murphy. You were supposed to hire Paniel Murphy!” But along the way I worked my way into their hearts, one random act of violence at a time. Now I have a weekly column, and if my editor Eric ever wants to see his vintage vinyl collection again, it’ll stay that way.
Now, to balance out some of the self-promotion, here’s some altruistic promotional material. Bloginterviewer.com (the site from this post) got a hold of another blog that I really enjoy called She Just Walks Around With It. I don’t know what the “It” is, but I have to assume it’s something sexual like a vibrator or Chlamydia. Otherwise what’s the big deal that she walks around with it? Anyway, so far Kristy is doing pretty well, leading all voters. But I think she can do better. So go vote for her and let’s make sure she brings it home.
The best part? That they are giving away BIG prizes this month. When I placed second in August after our near miraculous push at the end, I won $25. This month? First prize is A LASER PEN. Not the cheap kind either – the kind that can do serious retinal damage. I can’t think of anything Kristy needs less. So let’s make sure she wins it.
And finally, a little something for the readers.
I’ve already commissioned her to do the score for “[redacted]: The Movie”.
