The Mixed Bag

Damn, and I wanted to write a political blog for a change. Especially when my boy Dave Pell is taking the day off for the Jewish New Year.

And to all my Jewish friends I want to wish each and every one of you a Happy Rosh Hashanah and you shouldn't be reading this until tomorrow because the uhhh....hmmm....well the evil person in the Jewish religion will curse you. I guess the Jewish Satan if you will.

However I got another email and I felt the need to answer the questions. It's really odd that I stopped subscribing to the place and get an email that makes me regret that I didn't re-up my subscription. Thanks Susan, now I have to re-up and deny my unborn children money for their college educations because of one email. Luckily these children don't exist yet so the guilt trip probably isn't working.

Anyway, to answer your questions:

What is my quest? Right now my quest is to get back out on the road and write more. I'm sick of the desk life. It's a lazy job and I feel like shit when the shift is over. I know, you're probably saying "Corey, you ungrateful fool, there's nothing more gratifying than sitting on your ass for eight hours and increasing your stress levels to the red". But no, really there is. I need to get back to my writing roots.

What's my favorite color? Ahh question #3 in the Book of 100 Stock Questions. And the answer is blue.

What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow? Well I haven't a clue. I can't lie. I don't even want to lie. However, I went to google and style.org had an answer for you. Look right about...here.

Thanks for the questions Susan. I hope I answered them correctly.

Two hours before work and I still have half of Men's Health to get through. It's been a pretty underwhelming issue thus far but I wanted to leave you, my readers, with the answer to a question. An answer I'm sure some of my female readers will disagree with.

Q: I'm extremely interested in a woman, but her good friend is attracted to me. How sleazy is it to use Number Two's interest in me to become better friends with Number One?

A. There is a way you can play this without turning the two women against each other, or you. You need to talk Number Two aside as soon as possible and tell her that you think she's an attractive, amazing person, but that you've had a serious crush on Number One for a long time and have never had the courage to say anything. Of course the girl will be hurt and disappointed but she's also likely to become your biggest ally in winning the affections of her friend. It's hard to explain why, but most women are willing to be martyrs if it means love will prevail in the end.

Ahh women can be such saps sometimes. Moving on.

Air America Radio might not be the total failure the pundits predicted. I finally watched Al Franken's show on Sundance last night the sketch between Rush and Karen Hughes was as funny as I've seen in a while. I can't do it justice, I won't even try.

However, I'm proud to say the ol' red-blooded liberal show is doing well in the ratings.

From the L.A. Times:

"In New York during April, its first month on the air, Air America attracted more listeners in the 25-to-54-year-old demographic from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. than did WABC, where the popular Limbaugh is heard. Air America also beat WABC among the 18-to-34-year-old group. That's specifically intriguing to many in the business because talk radio typically draws an older audience."

And the network also reports thousands of listeners on through its streaming internet (which I have linked to on the right...har har).

And according to the ultra-conservative Boston Herald, Franken's show recently beat Bill O'Reilly's in the NYC market as well. I feel like a proud mother.

Enjoy the day.
