"If you would like to stop living in that box and move into my apartment I think we can work on your biting problem together."

Racino pickup line: "if you are free would not mind feeding your machine for a while."

The rare server-for-customer missed connection.

Wonk seeks lady wonk.

You'd notice Murphy if you saw him in Lansingburgh.

With 220+ bottles, that tree is worth at least $11. Someone will be all over that bad boy.

I am so very thankful for the wonderful people who wandered in and out of my life over the last few years. They have given me the love and support I need to survive and thrive. Last year at this time I was at my lowest. By the grace of all that is good in my life, I have climbed out and I'm happier than I've been in a very, very long time.
