Sexless in the City

Sometimes reading romance novels doesn’t quite prepare you for a love life...

For this 30-year-old urbanite, love is always a misadventure: The Harvard Lickwit, Hippie the Groper, the 5% Man, and the Ad Weasel. These and many other men wander in and out of her life — but never her bed.

Monday a.m. mimosa leaves me mum

Sorry for the delay in today’s post, ya’ll. Somehow I found myself out yacking it up last night till nearly 4 in the morning. By the time I got home it was nearly 5, for which reason I didn’t actually rise till (gulp) 12:30 p.m. Today I’ve mostly been involved in the trés-exciting business of killing fruit flies (vinegar + sugar + dish soap + water is amazing).

Since I somehow never managed to make my usual morning latte today, ’fraid this is going to be kind of a non-post ... unless you really want to see the stats on why jazz accounts for up to 23% of my CD collection, and what that says about my sexlessness.

But to send a little love your way nonetheless, two things. First, I found out the Apple iTunes store has a very impressive collection of Garnet Mimms songs, including the one I mentioned yesterday. As Long As I Have You

Second in an homage to true print culture, I propose to initiate the Anna Broadway book club. Last night at Barnes & Noble I came across a fascinating new book:

Taking Sex Differences Seriously
Taking Sex Differences Seriously

I’m ordering my copy tonight and plan to inject the usual “sexual tension in [my] writing” with occasional comments about the work. If you want to follow the discussion more closely, buy a copy of your own and we can discuss through the comment section of this page.

Ta, all! Off to a church-related coffee function. A friend suggests that bad pick-up lines could make for good blog-fare, so we’ll see what happens. I’m trying to remember the last time I actually heard a Christian utter a pick-up line. It’s not like they’re really required in order to pseudo-date ...

Loose ends
And yes, I do eventually plan to explain about the V-day game “Is it Mein Kampf or,” why 5% Man is so-named, and the porn-career that wasn’t. Stay tuned to this site!
