Ira Glass (of This American Life fame) talks about Getting Creative Work Done. (Via cspowers).

“Key message: If you want to create a thing, you already love it and you have good taste and high expectations. When you are starting out, there is a gap, possibly abig gap, between what you can produce and what your standards are. Can’t let yourself be discouraged by that. Must be willing to admit to yourself that the gap is there. Face the music. Best way to close the gap is to produce a large volume of completed work. On a schedule. Put yourself on a schedule. Or better yet commit yourself to a schedule for others to recieve your work, even if it’s not paid work.”

No one does a better job of skewering Cosmo, than Cosmocking. (Via kitiara.)

While ordering dinner, caress up his leg as high as you can get away with. If you’re feeling super-daring, reach inside his pants, and slip a hair tie around his penis–this gutsy move will keep him slightly stimulated all night.

“Honey, what are you… GACK! Okay, that feels really weird and annoying and I have no way of taking it off out here. I’m going to waddle to the bathroom now and I hate you.”

How do you know Ursulav? She's close friends with several of my peeps. It's truly a small world.

I've followed her blog for a while. However, we didn't meet in person until we had dinner and saw "The Bourne Supremacy" while she was on her ill-fated trip to the Bay Area.
