(Hopefully) Helping People Get Laid

I google myself every once in awhile.  I do it partially because I’m extremely vain and I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I continually see my name over and over again on a computer screen.  I also do it to see if I got any new blog hits or reviews that I wasn’t aware of.  Last week when I googled myself, I found out that there is a possibility that I got somebody laid.  This came up from the SF Craigslist’s Missed Connections section:

different light bookstore… “new year’s gum” – m4m

You are a cute little guy who offered me – a big guy in a brown hoodie – a piece of “New Year’s gum”.  I had come in for broke-ass stuart’s guide to living simply in San FrancsicoUm… hi. 🙂 

Wouldn’t it be awesome if the “cute little guy” with the gum saw this, responded and these guys ended up hooking up?  Who cares if dude didn’t get the exact title of the book right, I just like the thought that my book might be a catalyst for someone getting some action.  Shit, I hope there’s some way for my book to get you laid too.  Please do me a favor, if it does, send me an email and tell me about it!  

Hey wanna know something else cool?  If you go to you can listen to pretty much any song for free.  I am obsessed with The Band right now.  Their song “Tears of Rage” is one of the prettiest things I’ve ever heard.  Richard Manuel sounds like he’s a grown-ass man, but dude was probably only like 24 when he recorded that song.  Anyway, enough of my ranting.  If you haven’t done it already, buy my book dammit!

Here’s a photo of The Band.  I wish I looked as cool as these fuckers do:The Band
