A Rare Acknowledgement of My Pesonal Life

Thank you, Howie Kurtz: "Sklar discovered an ancillary benefit [of Twitter] in June when she wrote to a casual acquaintance, blogger Rex Sorgatz: 'Your latest twitter is one of the reasons I like you without knowing you so well.' After that e-mail, she says, 'he wrote back suggesting we have lunch.' They are now dating." See boys, it's that easy.


It is NOT that easy. You had to feed me a LOT first.

It seems to me that you're glossing over step #1: how to get hot, interesting, and important women to follow you on twitter.

Is Rexy bring Sklar back to Minnie and the RNC to meet the Family...meaning his real friends.

do you use impose the 140 character limit when you argue?

TaulPaul: It's more like the other way around, but yes, we'll both be there. How about rustling the gang together for dinner at the 112 Eatery on Saturday?

(And Carney is right -- this should be a reality tv series.)

Srsly, that article was ridonc. Glad you got the girl ... or she got you. Say hi to McSame for me in MN.

Good luck getting a table at 112 for this Saturday. You should probably send the maitre' d a link to the Gawker item.

Really? Since the conf doesn't start until Monday, I think we might be able to get in?

Perhaps it's time to bring out the serious string-pullers. Lex, where arrrre yoooou?

Also, whoever can impress this jaded girl on Twitter wins the biggest prize evah.

Solera or La Belle Vie also available.

Hate to get all Behind the Blog on you here, but which tweet was it?

posted by jkottke at 9:58 AM on August 26, 2008

The entire oeuvre, I'm sure.


Actually, this query has an answer, and it's one that I think you'll appreciate, JK. It was this one:

Trying really fucking hard to not be part of the problem.

Still trying!

May I suggest the two of you livetweet your dates, complete with different takes on how it's going?

they have maitre'd's at 112? where were they to talk me out of hendrix last night.

Holy mother of sweet baby hitler -- you're clearly omitting from your "easy" equation as to how to get the hotties to give you such an amazing opening as that, to even ask them out.

there's a journo only fete on the riverfront Sat night...when that winds down around 9, the whole WHouse Dist, 112 included, will get slammed with MSMers.

Do I have to hire security to handle the Gawkerazzi?

posted by taulpaul at 2:14 PM on August 26, 2008

I have magical 112 powers. But can I sit at the grownups table?

posted by stevemarsh at 2:27 PM on August 26, 2008

I want to sit next to Marsh.

posted by marrina at 3:01 PM on August 26, 2008

marsh...I thought Swardson kicked you to the curb for his GF?

posted by geoff at 5:19 PM on August 26, 2008

call her 'rocky' once or twice and see if she remembers.

Yes, but what was the "latest twitter" in June that captured the fair maiden's heart? Inquiring minds want to know what words from silver-tongued Rex clinched the deal.
