but now I am more into the boys:
They are so much more huggable!
How about this blog of things that excite boys?
I am shocked! Who on earth would patronize these services? Out of towners, maybe? Yeah that's it.
i want to hear about more dreams, especially the pocket knives on the ground at the cemetery.
Bush really is astonishing. It's almost as if he's a caricature of someone who makes really, really bad choices.
What is great, fascinating and also disgusting about this story [link] is that it's so tiny, so small, and so insignificant compared to the events of epic proportion which surround us.
He can't even make choices that are not terrible regarding the smallest of issues.
I always assume the person that bags my groceries at Spit Mart has a higher ethical standard and IQ than our president.
I can't believe you clicked on this, what a sicko you are.
Usually a mild case can be as short as 24 hours, but a serious case, say of Salmonella could last as long as a week if you don't get treatment (antibiotics!) There's also a fun new bacteria that extends the ride to ten days and adds bloody diarrhea at no additional charge.
The key is to talk to the restaurant or other people you saw eating there that day to find out if anyone else got sick, because if the kitchen was contaminated you were not the only one who got sick.
One thing is for sure: You had a shitty week from hell, and I'm glad to hear about it since mine was too!
Yeah, that's true. I hope someday we get a coffee shop, or coffee house, whatever they are called! You know one of those places in your neighborhood where you can go hang out with people and meet your neighbors and buy baked goods, maybe use the Internet or read magazines. Run by a pregnant couple or a Microsoft millionaire, oh sorry.
Letters: why not have more of them in this so-called community newspaper? They don't cost anything, so there's no whining about that, and they involve actual people with other opinions from Albuquerque (natives?) that aren't working at the alibi, (or at least I hope that is the case.)
News: Saddest of all this part of the newspaper can't decide whether to cover local news or national news. The egos behind the section aren't apparently fulfilled with covering local news which alibi admittedly does most of the time better than the Journal, Tribune, business weekly and iQ put together. But at the same time the worst sin of all is committed on a regular basis: a good local news story without any follow-up ever. That is just so lame, the stories don't end because you wrote once about them. Then to top it off you have a news editor who rarely actually writes, try to explain that! At least there is a consistent writer to cover the city council.
Film: When Devin O'Leery goes you people might as well all pack it in. The guy can write about anything and not only covers, nearly single=handedly the film and tv writing but contributes to the best column, though fluffy-fun, in the news section as well provided the occasional larger cover story in news or entertainment.
Art: Editor Allen does a good job with art, no doubt, but so regularly farms out his book reviews that I have actually come to prefer writers like John Freeman or Marisa, who seems to be developing nicely along the lines of o'Leery--she'll provide nice stories in any part of the paper when the editors are too lazy or too full of themselves to put pen to paper, or however you do it these days.
Food; What a waste, Laura M might as well just give her job to Jennifer Wolitz or to Jessica Car, since her contributions are apparently only metaphysical and never could sully her standards with ink and paper.
Music: Hmm, less Laura then ever though you could argue that being editor of two sections is hard work and probably represents cheap-ass, corner-cutting cost measures by owner/managers. But still, to lord over two sections and then to resolve that the best way to handle them both is to do nothing for either, seems so lame there should be a law against it.
Thank god for Marisa and Amy D. who we need to read more of. And, this bout of Constructive Criticism is only about the newspaper itself, where o were are the actual staffers on the blog? At least the people at Duke City Fix [link] are regularly contributing to the point where you can get a feel for their positions on certain things and can begin to follow them as writers.
Come on Jenn, rip me apart! I know I have it coming.
Is it correct that they always won more awards than the Alibi?
