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.

Tech note and other news

Dahlings ... Not that this applies to many of you, but for those of you inclined to send the occasional email, please note that Anna’s domain has changed from “” to “”; same username still applies. And if that’s just too confusing, see the address information revised on my profile and wherever it may appear on this site (for the most part; certain old entries I’m not sure about). Yeah for high-speed internet! And so on. See also a new March contest, coming soon to the side-column at right.

Since February was no contest at all (just one ever-faithful entrant), I’m printing Frasier’s entry as today’s item. What can I say? I’ve been sicker than a dog lately. A girl just don’t meet guys that way. And the way my brain’s been lately ... not sure I dare dive into the “archives” for more his-tory, Michael Jackson-style or otherwise.

Is that a blush I feel coming on?!! Not quite the “What relationship is your job like?” entries I anticipated ... but funny stuff nonetheless. Wish me health and good luck with an editing test for a long-term contracting job that may pay quite well! Finishing it off today, to mail back to California (they would let me telecommute). Then back with more first-person blogging as you expect — maybe even a Spooning Fork!
