My first McSweeney's piece!

It concerns sex and moving, two things I rarely engage in, although that's going to change in a couple months when my landlord screws me.

Pick Up Lines To Use While Moving

Just tell your landlord you have plenty of friends with baseball bats. BIG baseball bats. And I swear to God I'll drive down there if he gives you any trouble!

Not being a pop culture know-it-all, I didn't know what McSweeney's was. Looks like a great site though. And I didn't know you could actually use pickup lines while moving. Yours are pretty good!

The last time I moved, a few friends came over and helped me load all my earthly possessions in a U-Haul truck. I remember thinking, "if this truck goes over a cliff or blows up, I'm basically screwed." But the move went well and life went on.

Is it really the weekend already? Seems like it was just Tuesday. That might be because the last 3 days I've had bad internet connection problems. Yesterday wasn't too bad though. It only went out a couple of time in the afternoon, and there were bad thunderstorms in parts of the state which makes it somewhat understandable.

Still, I can't for the life of me figure out why there are so many more outages in the summer (even during good weather) than in the winter when it's frequently 10 below zero with snow and ice and sleet and freezing rain and...

And I'm still marveling over your vlog, Alison. Maybe because it's so different (and great) seeing you somewhere other than on RE or other shows where they're asking you questions. It was more like you were just being yourself.

Peace out.

I just came up with a brilliant idea for a McSweeney's piece! I'm currently writing a national health care plan for the Mccain camp but when that is done, I'm going to do this project!

I can assure you that it doesn't involve moving, creepy landlords that don't use protection, fart songs or Joe's obsession with baseball bats! However, Alison inspires my creative side so I'm going to write this bad boy up and see what happens! This could launch the career I always hoped for!
