the auction ended last night

for the who will get to be linked on the busblog for a month.

i am happy to report that the winner is Allan Karl of the for the sake of clarity – The Digital Tavern. congratulations Allan, and please, everyone go to his site and reward him with your attention.

ah, ebay auctions. i love them. this auction went on for a week which i think is enough time to scientifically study the value of a link from my page. My man Ric from Bitchen took the bidding to a respectable $20, and for that i think you. thank you Ric.

a friend said that i should allow those who bid to get linked at thier highest bid, but since that goes against eBay’s policies i wont abuse their auction.

even though their stock continues to soar.

even though they wont let people auction things like offensive tshirts, and individual playboy mags, or things like wisdom teeth.

i was fortunate enough to meet the winner of this auction as i slurped down my pre Live from the Blogosphere panel discussion that i was lucky enough to be part of.

i believe we both enjoyed the house favorite Slippery Shrimp at Yang Chow in Chinatown, a restaurant i need to re-vist, and a dish that i highly recommend.

so many good things came out of that Blogosphere event. thank you Xeni and Reverse Cowgirl for inviting me.

and thank you all you nice people who i met there.

especially the young ladies who flooded me with little notes with their phone numbers scribbled on.

the bat signal just was illuminated.

back to work.

for the sake of clarity

god damn you half japanese girls

you do it to me every time.

carlisa from pink cookies came over last night to watch the laker game with me, and eat pizza and drink beer and talk about, shit what did we talk about?

why am i bombarded with the coolest people to hang out with?

why do i get the best readers on the web?

why did the good people of Google slash Blogger send me a care package of love which i appreciate so much you dont even know?

why do barely legal girls continue to call me and chat with me and stalk me even though they have boyfriends and lives and new cars and development deals?

i dont understand any of this, america.

is it a test? are the angels and saints of heaven testing me to see if i will change if im surrounded by the incredibly cool, if it will get to my head, if i will start to think that i actually had anything to do with any of this.

its a little scary because in the dreamworld of college that i was blessed to attend, one of the lessons of good storytelling is to create a character, bestow unto this person all these great things, and then pull the carpet out from underneath him and ruin his life. tragedy. Job. mike tyson. oj simpson. etoys stock holders.

carlisa is the shit. shes sharp as a tack, has always had the best style. im dying to play her one on one cuz she had a hoops scholarship for college and im dying to see how my skillz match up with her.

i was the starting point gaurd on the jv team in highschool. oh yeah.

we were supposed to talk about tshirt ideas but instead we watched howard stern reruns and the laker game. how much better does that get?

carlisa is like many native los angelinos that i have had the pleasure of knowing: super mellow, super smart, totally well balanced and chill.

its almost as if theyve seen it all and instead of becoming negative and jaded about it, theyve bottled it all and turned it into some crazy wisdom and a wild independence.

welch and the whalens have this. i think it’s awesome.

anyways, thanks great pumpkin for surrounding me with these badass souls. it blows me away just about every day.

long live blogger.
