Mary Ann Likes the Mary Jane
1. Hey! You know what? After 50 years on that island you’d be looking for some relief too. AP story
2. In other not-news, last night I went to hear Stan Bann’s Big Band at O’Gara’s. They were good, as always, and I ran into somebody I thought I might know. “Do I know you?” he said. “I was thinking the same thing.” “Oh yeah…I think we had a date.” We caught up a little and had a laugh about the internet dating thing. ("Is he havin' a laff?!")
This is now the second time this month that I’ve run into someone I had a single date with and then we sort of recognized each other. It’s very weird. I suppose it’s better than in high school, where your dating missteps have the locker next to yours. It’s still kinda jarring. (Note to all internet daters out there: don’t leave the house looking less than your best – you WILL see someone you know.)
3. Re. Eliot Spitzer: Dude! $4,300?! I am in the wrong line of work. (relax, it’s a joke…)
Happy warm up and hug it out, people!
