The side-benefit of dating Jewish girls in this silly city: my Words With Friends gameplay has become much better!

Dear Jonny

Several months ago, my pal Steve did an interview with Diablo Cody in a Minneapolis magazine. Somewhat famously (to Minnesotans), he asked when Diablo was going to dump her husband, Jonny. It was a joke. Except Diablo sorta blew up at him. And, well, you saw this coming: they filed for divorce a month later. Awkward! But now Steve has broken the news that Jonny is engaged to a new girl, who was friends with Diablo. (Meta-disclaimer: it's incestuous city -- pretty much everyone in this post knows each other. Which is why only 2% of you probably care.) [via]

Can we vote for no more Diablo Cody stories? :(

I agree. I mean, are you sure we can afford to divert any of our julia allison resources right now?

I mean, I realize that we're too "incestuous" to add anything from up here in the Emerald City anyway. (Shakes head. Turns country music station up.)

Only if you're from Minneapolis.

Go crank your Jayhawks albums, bud.

And you made me feel so...bluuuuuuue.

Goddam you clever city boys!

I am Jonny's 5th wife.

Jonny's a lover. I've never been married, so he's making up for people like me.

I am from Minneapolis, which probably makes me more tired of hearing about her than most!

posted by sassypants at 2:05 AM on March 14, 2008

Not only do we all know each other, we're all related and have been have intimate encounters for years. Smooch Smooch Max.

My favorite part of the morning is the kisses from TaulPaul. That's probably why we're all so steamed at Diablo. We used to all wake up in the same bed on our hippie farming collective, watch Steve and Sharon, hug for a while, and then head out to gather the honey or make seed art. Now there is a place in our giant bed that Diablo used to fill, and she's gone, she's gone.

You could chase her to LA, ya know. There's already a couple Minnesotans on her coattails there...

posted by Rex at 11:31 AM on March 14, 2008

Uh-oh. All the other non-Minneapolis posts are all cool and laconic with "0" or "1" comments. I think we're breachin' some kinda New York etiquette here by carin' so much, everybody. So can we all please shut up? God, why am I always stuck with you rubes? You're always embarrassin' me. I hate you, Minneapolis. I hate you.

posted by stephenhero at 11:34 AM on March 14, 2008

Is there a market for seed art in LA?

posted by Max "Bunny" Sparber at 11:39 AM on March 14, 2008

Wait, what? Which Minneasotans are on Diablo's coattails? I can make coffee too! And my license is valid. I have good White Bear Lake-taste--I can pick out animal prints on Rodeo.

Who are these people, Rex? Gimme names.

Hey, I'm just glad we're all still alive. When Melinda Jacobs got a blog, I thought the universe was going to implode, fo sho.

posted by taulpaul at 11:44 AM on March 14, 2008

I thought Marisa's pilgrimage pre-dated Brooke's.

posted by taulpaul at 11:46 AM on March 14, 2008

I'm not naming names... nor am I begrudging them...

(I also hear a rumor about who she's dating now and I'm not telling that either! Hahaha, I believe in secrecy still... how quaint!)

posted by Rex at 11:46 AM on March 14, 2008

Who is Melinda Jacobs? The only person I care about is someone named Sarah Lacey. You know, like normal people.

posted by stephenhero at 11:47 AM on March 14, 2008

Oh, whatever, Rex. I am so twittering you right now.

posted by stephenhero at 11:49 AM on March 14, 2008

I think we should come here every Friday, and take over...you know...to help Rex remember the little people.

posted by taulpaul at 11:51 AM on March 14, 2008

Deep down, Rex knows we're still the cool kids. I mean, if the Gawker people are cool for being "outside the establishment," how much more outside can you get than us?

Minneapolis, I'd like to sing you a song: Du du du du du du dudu, I don't see what anyone can see, In anyone else but you.

posted by stephenhero at 11:56 AM on March 14, 2008

Deep down? C'mon, I'm Minneapolis' greatest propagandist! I'm still on a mission to get Melissa and Chuck and all the other expats to move back and take over a bar or something. Or maybe we'll buy The Rake. Hahahaha!

(Steve, I have no idea why you're not a NYC blogger. Seriously, your style is better than most of these coasties...)

posted by Rex at 12:01 PM on March 14, 2008

Really? Really?!? (Clasps hands together like Minnesota's own Judy Garland.) Why do you think I've been trying so hard on this thread? I'll tell you why: I've been hoping Nick Denton will see this, swoop me up, hand me $25,000 and put me in a bikini in Williamsburg by this weekend!

Hopefully Sunday, so I can see the Faux Jean reunion first.

posted by stephenhero at 12:06 PM on March 14, 2008

Are you saying Diablo Cody is dating MARK MALLMAN?!?

posted by chuck at 12:06 PM on March 14, 2008

too late. I hear NoDo already claimed you.

posted by taulpaul at 12:10 PM on March 14, 2008

Everybody in Minneapolis and New York should switch places for a couple of years. Of course, then the people in Minneapolis will start behaving like there is no world outside Minneapolis, and everybody in New York will wonder why they can't be as cool as the people in Minneapolis.

posted by Max "Bunny" Sparber at 12:14 PM on March 14, 2008

Max, that idea is so downtown.

posted by stephenhero at 12:20 PM on March 14, 2008

Do they have Culvers in NY. Then maybe.

posted by taulpaul at 12:21 PM on March 14, 2008

Culvers is a Wisconsin thing, Paul. Don't blow this thread for us with your bullshit Midwestern self-deprecating humor.

posted by stephenhero at 12:24 PM on March 14, 2008

Culvers does make a hell of a root beer, though.

posted by Max "Bunny" Sparber at 12:26 PM on March 14, 2008

You have to admit this post is getting way more action than the Torture Puppy post.

Denton won't want you unless you wax "down there".

posted by taulpaul at 12:40 PM on March 14, 2008

You invited me to this kinda late, didntcha? People, I brought bars.

posted by alexis at 12:50 PM on March 14, 2008

And magnets!

posted by Max "Bunny" Sparber at 1:13 PM on March 14, 2008

Fuck yeah I brought magnets!

posted by alexis at 1:25 PM on March 14, 2008

We're totally going to get kicked out.

posted by stephenhero at 1:26 PM on March 14, 2008

Lunch lasts too long in NYC. Pshit like this happens when I leave.

I wax all over, but I still have no interest in that gig. A year ago, maybe.

posted by Rex at 2:40 PM on March 14, 2008

Fag.

Polished nards are so magnets!

Marsh, you going to Johan's b-day tonight?

posted by taulpaul at 4:12 PM on March 14, 2008

Yeah, I'm still waiting for a MXMW review. MN love? sheesh.

posted by taulpaul at 4:44 PM on March 14, 2008

So what are you up to this weekend Max?

posted by taulpaul at 5:31 PM on March 14, 2008

Entertaining family, blogging, maybe hitting up the gospel brunch with richg, making seed art.

posted by Max "Bunny" Sparber at 7:27 PM on March 14, 2008

Sounds fun. We're heading to soundBar tonight, then a CD release party for a friend tomorrow. Finally, the adults get to go out and have fun.

posted by taulpaul at 8:03 PM on March 14, 2008

This is nice, Paul; we don't say hi to each other enough. We should wing by Rex's blog all the time to just catch up.

posted by Max "Bunny" Sparber at 12:04 AM on March 15, 2008

Sounds like a plan. I'd say we pick a post and take it over every Friday.

posted by taulpaul at 5:24 PM on March 15, 2008

I think this is how Gawker took off.
