arson's favorite song

don't deny it arson. you love reggaeton. i saw that sparkle in your eyes when they played it at the plow and stars. (or however they spell it)

it took me a while to figure out who sang this song, but now that i know. oh man. i now have a new song to play when arson is grumpy.

(the video is NSFW by the way.)


today, youtube recommended steve perry - oh sherry. i don't know how they could make such a mistake. i hate this song so much. i especially dislike the mid-song guitar solo. now this will be in my head for at least 3 months.

running is awesome

on sunday, i ran the rothman institute 8k. it was really exciting and i had a blast. xoxo running. it was my first official race since cross-country in high school, which is almost 10 years ago. back then i averaged an 8 or 9 minute mile, so my 10 minute mile for this race is pretty awesome!

i'm definitely ready to try a half-marathon now. probably in the spring. the 8k was too much fun to not do again. (although i will need a better ipod mix next time around.)

November Questions: Question 9

Joe asked: "why do i have such a hard time getting up in the morning?"

it sounds like you have a pork deficiency. if you increase your pork consumption, especially in the morning, i think things will improve.


November Questions: Question 8

Anonymous asked: "So, do you prefer the "straight clay aiken" type, or are you more of a "stoner harry potter" kinda gal?"

oh man, can I have both? that would be a phenomenal hybrid. stoner clay potter and i could produce attractive children with magical singing voices.

happy anniversary arson

it's been three years since gay men introduced us at a dive bar. that night i accidentally dumped beer down my jeans, asked for your hand in marriage and boxed your ears in a slap boxing match. and you still called me the next day. i'm so glad we found each other.

30 Questions of November: Question 5

Stuart said "Let the homosexuals marry, I say. Your thoughts?"

Agreed. I'm not pleased about Maine. I really wish gay marriage could happen by changing a few pieces of paperwork and not by propositions or referendums. It would be simple and cost effective to just add another box to check on a marriage license. Our system is too complicated. These campaigns are just hemorrhaging money. The issue seems to be snowballing with each state.

But, I do think Grover got it right when it comes to marriage...

30 Questions of November: Question 4

Stuart asked "will i ever forgive you for getting the "the touch the feel of cotton" song stuck in my head?"

i think a better question is, will you ever forgive me for getting this stuck in your head?

thanks for your recommendation, youtube

i love it when youtube tells me what to watch. sometimes they are spot-on. and sometimes they are just ridiculous. here are some of their suggestions for me today:

radiohead covering the smiths

will smith - will2k

prodigy - firestarter

Nena - Irgendwann

30 Questions of November: Question 3

Stuart asked: "Why do people litter, buddy?"

- laziness
- a lack of concern for the environment
- a penchant for squirrels

30 Questions of November: Question 2

last night arson could not stop singing "the touch of cotton" commercial as sung by aaron neville. he asked that i add it to ephemera. it's more of a request than a question, but i'll play. here you go arson...

30 questions of November: Question 1

Joe asked "How can I figure out whether my marijuana use is causing my depression or my depression is causing my marijuana use?"

this is a tough one. at first glance i thought this was rhetorical. similar to "if a tree falls in a forest ..." type question. marijuana and depression seem inextricably connected. but i think you can solve this one mathematically. you just need another variable.

x + marijuana = depression
x + depression = marijuana

x = ?
marijuana = 1 lb
depression = 0

Based on my calculations, x = a Giants loss. it's possible that x can equal other stuff too, but right now it's definitely the Giants.
