Nice Guys vs. Bad Boys Posted on Oct 24, 2007 at 10:29 AM
Ok ladies, we know you find nice guys boring and you can't keep your eyes or hands off bad boys, but why? Are you trying to change them, do you love the thrill of vying for their attention which they're not willing to send your way? And, what's a nice guy to do to become more attractive to you? Should a nice guy play the part of a bad boy to win your heart? Should we stop treating you with respect, or showing interest in you to spice things up? Don't count nice guys out, we might fool you (think Revenge of the Nerds when the cheerleader is shocked to find the nerdy guy more exciting in bed than the Jock). Seriously, though, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the Nice Guy vs. Bad Boy debate!

The Travel Blog Posted on Sep 29, 2007 at 03:43 PM
So, I just returned from a fantastic two week vacation in Russia (Moscow + St. Petersburg) and this comes after visits to Barcelona and Italy in the past year. Having never travelled prior to that, I am constantly amazed at what a wonderful world we live in and I look forward to seeing more of it. Please post here stories of great trips you've taken, things you've learned about other places in the world, experiences you've had that will last a lifetime because they were from far away, etc... I'd love to hear of anyone who met someone special while travelling but any and all stories are welcome and encouraged. Tell us about your favorite places in the world (even if you only had to cross the street to get there)!

Your favorite Disney movie Posted on Sep 05, 2007 at 10:56 AM
In responding on another blog, I admitted to being a long time watcher and lover of Disney films, are you? If so, what's your favorite Disney film and why? Whether it be live action (Polyanna, Old Yeller, Apple Dumpling Gang, etc...); animated (Snow White, Bambi, Aladdin, Mulan, etc...), or CGI (Toy Story, Monsters Inc, The Incredibles, etc...), tell us what Disney film(s) you like best and what it was about them.
Headed to Russia - any tips? Posted on Sep 03, 2007 at 01:56 PM
My buddy and I are heading to Russia in two weeks because it's one of the few places he hasn't visited and we both need to get away for a little bit. Anyone traveled to (or live in) Moscow or Saint Petersberg? If so, what are the "must see/can't miss" places and do you have any tips for us while we're there?
iPhone! Posted on Aug 22, 2007 at 11:27 PM
After over 4 years with a Treo that I loved, I lost it last week and learned I needed to replace my unlimited plan if I was to get a new phone so I upgraded to the iPhone. For years I've been a PC devotee but now I'm at home blogging on my phone! This has been the best phone I've ever used!! Do you have one? Do you love it? Any tips?
I'm bleeding right now! Posted on Jul 06, 2007 at 04:19 PM
Hey everyone, My business partner and I have been, for the past few years now, donating blood every 57 days. Everytime we go the people at the blood bank have a great time watching us on our cell phones and doing business across the room. Now they have internet hookups and I'm writing to you now with a needle in my arm!! Does anyone else donate? If not, try it out, it's a great way to help others!!
Have you ever skydived? Posted on Jun 25, 2007 at 11:18 PM
Has anyone out there ever been sky diving? I am typically scared to death of heights, but for my business partner's birthday, a group of us went skydiving and I have to tell you, it was the most amazing experience I've had in a long time! (Ok, perhaps a sad comment about my love life, but it really was spectacular!). If you get the chance, no matter how badly you think you wouldn't be able to do it, go skydiving!! It's like Leanne Rhimes sings, "when you get a chance to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance..." I would love to hear your experiences if you've ever been, or (hopefully) if you go soon!
25th Annual Putnum Spelling Bee Posted on Jun 23, 2007 at 08:05 PM
Has anyone seen this show? I'm thinking about getting tickets for a performance in Chicago next weekend but wanted to know your thoughts on the show.
Things to do in Chicago (when you're alive)? Posted on Jun 23, 2007 at 08:04 PM
Thanks to those who get the reference. I'm heading to Chicago next week for a film festival and wondering if anyone knows of any must see's or can't misses? I will be attending the festival most nights but during the day I should have time to get around the city and take it in. I'm staying at the Rafael on Delaware Street in the theater district if that helps.
That was really awesome! Posted on May 05, 2007 at 07:18 AM
One of my favorite SNL skits had Chris Farley as a really bad talk show host who would interview guests like Arnold Schwarzenneger (my current governor) and have questions like: "you remember, in Terminator, when you said ??ll be back!??" And the guest would reply, "Yes" to which Chris said, "That was really awesome!" but had nothing much else to ask. Thinking of that skit, if you were on the Chris Faarley talk show, what moment in your life would he cite? In other words, give us a moment, a comment you made, something you did or some lucky situation in which you thought to yourself: "wow, that was really awesome!". It could be a witty retort or hitting the jackpot on your first coin. Share your proud moments here:
Barcelona trip next week - suggestions? Posted on Apr 20, 2007 at 03:35 PM
Hey everyone, I'm headed off to Barcelona next week for about 10 days as a vacation. I'm staying in the Hotel Monument Casa Fuster for most of the time there (it's on Paseo De Gracia Avenue in downtown). I've already been told I need to eat at Los Caracoles but I wonder if anyone else has a suggetion of what to see and do there?
Sweet Aimee is a Neppy Hatted Ho! Posted on Apr 10, 2007 at 06:18 PM
Actually, she's not (unless she has a hat from the Neppy Vending Co. in CT somewhere) but she brings up a good point. Why are we more inclined to visit the more controversial blogs and consider the nicer ones boring? Does this translate to people too? Do we shy away from normal, non-dramatic relationships just because they're boring? Is this self-destructive or a comment upon our desire, and accustomization, to being entertained all the time? Why were people more apt to comment upon and attack each other than add their favorite romantic restaurant, best line of a movie or other, more innocent blogs? And, most importantly, how can we make the less destructive blogs more interesting? * Any similarity to Don Imus' comments is purely intentional but completely disavowed, especially to those who couldn't bear watching him in a felt cowboy hat and shirt from 1977 saying he wasn't bigoted.
The Bachelor audtions Posted on Mar 23, 2007 at 11:11 PM
ABC is having casting calls for this season of "The Bachelor" Do you watch the show? What do you think of it? What would be the best / worst part of living your courtship on television? What, if anything, did you think of Fox's "Joe Millionaire" that featured a guy pretending to be a millionaire to get the attention of potential wives who fell in love with him then learned he was actually poor (ahem, sound familiar to anyone here?)?

Fresh Air Posted on Mar 16, 2007 at 08:04 PM
Hey everyone, since we've recently rid the blogs of many negative influences I can honestly say this has become a great place to exchange ideas, find good jokes, share stories, discuss issues and learn about each other. Thanks to all who contribute positively to the blog! Keeping with that, let's hear about something great that happened for you today, this week, this month or recently. For my part, my business partner and I have been working exceptionally hard these past 3 years since we opened our company (real estate brokerage) and today, after having moved into our new offices a few weeks ago, we got our new sign delivered. It's a really big sign that will be put up out front in the middle of our town and while it doesn't seem like much, our little company now has 4 offices, 30 employees and is doing great. It's nice to have this tangible expression of the success we worked hard to achieve. What put a smile on your face recently?
Your favorite cologne / perfume Posted on Mar 13, 2007 at 10:18 PM
Hey everyone, Mountain Winds inspired me with her "scents" story (in 4 pars - read them all, they're great). What is your favorite cologne or perfume? I'm running out of "Black" by Kenneth Cole and need a replacement, any suggestions?
Need a good shrimp recipe Posted on Mar 12, 2007 at 06:51 PM
Hey everyone, Cassie's blogs about restaurants and favorite last meals are inspiring me. Every monday night I get together with a group of 12 friends and I cook them a gourmet meal. We watch "24" together, drink some wine (not for me during Lent) and just talk. I've done everything from stuffed corish game hens to steamed spinach and sea bass but tonight I'm thinking shrimp. I've got one hour before I go to the grocery store so any recipies would be greatly appreciated. My initial thought is to do shrimp three ways: a scampi over capellini, a spicy shrimp dish and a cold shrimp in tequila, cumin and lime yogurt sauce, but any other ideas would be great.
An MM Sonnett Posted on Mar 09, 2007 at 09:56 PM
As I stroll through the land of blogs, And I search for my love online, Watching drama of princesses and frogs, Keeping fast to this mission of mine. The names, profiles, stories and lies, Inside somewhere truth must be found, Dashed hopes and dreams, connections and ties, Through the dizzying fog, love will abound. As darkness threatens to stifle the light I cherish the hope and continue to fight.
Your most embarrasing moment... Posted on Mar 09, 2007 at 09:38 PM
OK, everyone, bear it for us all, tell us your most embarrassing moment... When I was a sophmore in college, during homecoming weekend I was pledging Sigma Phi Epsilon we had to swim in a freezing Connecticut lake to put our fraternity letters on display. I was sorry to remember that typical of a college guy I hadn't done laundry for about a month and when scraping the bottom of my underwear drawer stooped to wear the "gag" gift a friend gave me for my birthday. We were so cold after swimming a half frozen lake that we ran back to the house and showered, putting on sweat pants and sweatshirts the brothers left for us (and, yes, going commando). The next day, on top of our float, was a stick w/ my red mesh man's speedo briefs hanging off it and a sign identifying the owner...Ever watch a college sophmore scale a moving float to remove such a thing?
Your favorite fictional character Posted on Mar 09, 2007 at 09:17 PM
Whether (s)he be from a book, a movie, a play, a cartoon or any other work of fiction, who has inpsired you the most? Who would you love to meet if they were real? I've got to go with George Bailey, Del Griffith, Atticus Fitch and King Arthur for starters...
