Sometimes I do something good
Had that date finally.
Me: So what do you think?
Her: (after thinking) You did good.
Me: (laughing) I suppose it’s about time I did.

It’s easy to go broke dating in NYC
Went to a comedy club recently with the blue-jean eyed girl.
It was good, it included Gabriel Iglesias from Last Comic Standing, who was great.
But what a scam – basically, it’s a $20 cover, two drink minimum ($24) with an automatic 18% gratuity. For two people with just a plate of appetizers, it worked out to be $150.
Counting cab rides, subway rides, and daily miscellany, the day would have easily been $200+.
All I can say is, man, there’s no quicker way to go broke than just trying to entertain yourself in the big city so that you don’t go postal.
That’s why I spend Sunday through Thursday eating cold sandwiches and drinking tap water.

Questions you should ask in a relationship before you get serious
My brother sent me this article from the NY Times called: Questions Couples Should Ask (Or Wish They Had) Before Marrying. Even though it’s one in the morning, I’m going to answer the first five. I’ll answer the rest in another post.
1) Have we discussed whether or not to have children, and if the answer is yes, who is going to be the primary care giver?
- I need to have kids. Three ideally.
- I would like to stay home and take care of the kids because:
- I make enough money working from home to survive, nay flourish (ok, survive) for seven years in Manhattan
- I’m constantly cooking and am willing to mash anything for them
- I’m a big kid myself
2) Do we have a clear idea of each other’s financial obligations and goals, and do our ideas about spending and saving mesh?
- I’m a firm believer in fiscal responsibility (see 1, above).
- I rarely cab, and walk whenever possible
- While I love to cook, I do like to go out about two times a week. I’m much more local restaurant than five-star, hot-place-of-the-week.
3) Have we discussed our expectations for how the household will be maintained, and are we in agreement on who will manage the chores?
- I’m messy but oddly germ-a-phobic.
- No shoes in the house.
- No dirty clothes on the bed
- We would swap chores weekly
- I can’t stand dirty dishes in the sink.
4) Have we fully disclosed our health histories, both physical and mental?
- Clearly, I’m a bit nuts. I put my entire life on my blog that no one reads (but you – hey, thanx!)
- I’m an insomniac and have been for at least two decades. It means I get moody and irritable and may lash out (never physically but I do yell). Please ignore and take a walk or encourage me to. It’ll all work out.
- I have been depressed before – actually, if you’ve been reading this blog, you know all this.
5) Is my partner affectionate to the degree that I expect?
- Ah, look at the time! Gotta run – sorry…
