i like how the length of your writing vacillates between 1-2 sentence link posts and 9-page magazine articles. good piece.

Color me skeptical of the truthiness of the first sentence of the article.

Well Gawker sure didn't like that.

Congrats on publishing a great piece in NY Mag!

Oh, that's silly. Pareene is awesome, and if you think THAT'S bad, then the internet is a scary place.

Chiding about Julia is completely warranted. I've taken much worse here.

Gawker commenters = Gawker (oh come on, as if I had to elaborate).

Oh. Well. Yeah. They haven't liked anything since... well, never.

Haha. Hey, remember when I met you at that thing and had no idea who you were? Some how this article came up in my... internet... and I stared at the name for a while before realizing why it was familiar.

Anyway, uh, Felicia did end up coming to the party, thanks.

"always respond to the stupid, meaningless, nonsensical, vapid nonsense that strangers spout about you on the internet, even if it means rudely pulling out your iphone or blackberry thirty-two times during every single movie, show,and conversation (you know, the ones with actual human beings).

here's to languishing in anonymity.
