    Wow!
    I can proudly say that I know about all of these stories.
    Of course, if that means I spend as much time on-line as Mr. Faris then I should probably be working more.

  2. Michael says:

    I think most of them have been in my Twitter/Facebook status over the last two weeks, or I got from others’ tweets.

    And I have been spending too much time on the Internets the last few weeks. This excursion needs to stop.

  3. Nels says:

    I honestly thought when you were said MSM that you meant men who have sex with men, and I was very confused.

  4. Michael says:

    Hehe, I often make that mistake when reading too. Now I use “MSM” to laugh at my own confusion. :)

  5. Roger Wilson says:

    My God but this page has become a snooze. What a disgrace. I was turned on to you by a good pal, but it’s become such a bore, darlin’.

  6. Roger Wilson says:

    Oh My God. I thought MSM meant “Me So Mediocre.”

    Yes, that would have worked well. What a colossal bore this place is. And you actually take some pride in it. Too bad.

  7. Michael says:

    Adamant about making that point, eh Roger?
