    this month was the weirdest month ive ever had 

    i was invited by mtv to go to vegas and interview people on the red carpet, i was asked by directv to their emmys party where i danced feet away from paris hilton, i got to interview many people including matt sharp who i asked if i should just give up hoping that he will rejoin weezer, i was possessed by the devil, and then excorcized by the xbi, and then God above came down and blessed not just LAist with the greatest day we’ve ever had, but the Cubs who clinched the playoffs yesterday.

    i had very high highs and very low lows. i was so angry at one point that i could feel it in my eyes, and yesterday we had over ten thousand people an hour come to LAist every hour for 12 hours. that was just one of the very high highs.

    the weirdness didnt end. yesterday i had to go to a business lunch meeting. usually i avoid those at all costs. but because we had broken all records etc i was all fine.

    the meeting went well but the best part was jen from big brother was right there eating with this dude. not only did the dude know who i was because of his friend but jen knew of one of LAist’s photographers.

    it was very weird. shes shorter in person. everyone says that about everyone i know. but she was cuter and shorter and it was great to say hi to her and tell her i liked her on the show.

    during the meeting however came across a slim possibility of maybe doing something at the greatest house in all of los angeles. and possibly the world.

    the scary thing is, this month still has two more days in it. and i sorta dont want to leave the house because ive had plenty for this month already.

    these are some of the things i wrote on LAist this month
