About Us
A penny for your thoughts indeed. Around here that would be a raise.

What makes a good blog? I think thematic consistency, a little exhibitionism, and honest writing. I can promise you the last one.

Most of my posts seem to be about music or politics. Some of them are funny. But all of them would love to hear a comment from you.

Oh-- and please welcome God to the APW team. We're thrilled and humbled to serve as His earthly vessel.

My Photo
Location: NYC

I was born at a relatively young age. Growing up consumed the better part of my childhood. As a young man I chased a lot of girls. But they kept getting away. Then I got older and even slower, so I got married. I've lived in New York City almost since before I moved here. I summer in Manhattan, which is like New York City, but with more humidity.

Here's me, without baby, thinking big thoughts. (Actually, what I'm thinking is, "Hey, these aren't Pringles!") I think I look better with baby.

I know, you thought I was kidding when I said my nerd crush was Maureen Dowd, luscious columnist for the liberal rag the New York Times.

I was not kidding.

Check it. This shot is from the online version of her 10/30/05 NYT Magazine piece, "What's a Modern Girl to Do?"

If I was single, I would so totally ask her out.

Did you know her entire family is Fox News-Republican, and they often sit around at family gatherings asking Ms. Dowd why she isn't as smart and goodlooking as Ann Coulter? Talk about dreading Thanksgiving...

Oh lord, is that true? Good heavens. "If only you were as pretty and smart as that nice Ann Coulter. Then you'd snare a man."

My btother is an arch conservative. I sent him a talking Ann Coulter doll. Push the button, it says something pithy (like, "Liberals are traitors!") He wanted to know why I sent it; he thought he should be mildly insulted. I told him, "I dunno, I just thought you'd like it." And he sheepishly admitted that yeah, he sort of did.

If there is a talking Maureen doll I want one. Or better, if there is a blow-up Maureen doll...

No blow-up dolls for you. You're married. Incidentally, I just checked out your sister's blog. When in the hell did the toddler bouncing on your bed in too-big earphones become a wife and mother of two? Also nice remodelling job on APW. It feels much roomier now.

No blow-up dolls? Can I at least have porn?

I remember being at a concert at Jones Beach with my sister in the '90s (I think it was Prince.) She was looking around and said to me, "We're the oldest ones here." And I was, like, when did we get to be the same age? But we WERE the oldest ones there.

My secret word: biwfab. Doesn't that just look dirty?

Oh, and I'm glad you like the new-ish look. I've been stuck at the blog all day waiting for the cable guy.

I completely don't control your access to porn, although, when I was married, I was the kind of spouse who encouraged free expression. Of course I was married to a man who thought "looked too long at well-built construction worker" was grounds for divorce. (I mean when I did it.) I was stuck at home waiting for the plumber but now he's been here and gone and I'M FREE!!!! He looked nothing like Derek Jeter and it cost me $166.68 for one tiny little gasket to fit between the tank and the bowl. But I don't have to go crawling around on the bathroom floor turning the water main on and off.

See what happens when a girl finally blows her gasket?
