  1. Worst lie: about a week ago a guy I was interested in told me he was 38. He made remarks like “I’m old enough to be your dad” and “I have grey pubic hair to prove it!”…well, it turns out he’s 24 and he’s just not interested in me. When I accused him of manipulating people with the age thing he said “You’ve got me all screwed up!” And that was the end of it.

  2. I don’t know about Midwestern Culture, but my favorite part of Wisconsin culture is the smell and feel of a true Wisconsin tavern. Taxidermied animals on the walls. Round, padded, backless barstools. Shake of the day and a drink chip pushed your way for every third tap you buy. “Blind Robins” and peanuts stapled to cardboard wall hangers to help pad yourself for the beer. And the smell…the smell of countless dirty shoes walking across the floor for years combined with spilled beer and peanut shells. It’s the smell of small town Wisconsin legacy, for all the good and bad that’s included in that.

  3. So, no tickets because this one was a flop? or what?

  4. Apologies Tyler. Please check your e-mail!
