yes, me

I must survive myself pretty much everyday. I tend to be a little too blunt and a little too much of a grump – so just getting past myself is a job unto itself. But I’m actually a nice guy, so give me and my blog a try.

I live in Brooklyn and I have a job that pays the bills. This blog is an attempt to rid myself of the many thoughts that envelope my mind each day.

I like – sports, hip-hop, ice cream, dogs (especially mine), blogs, the real world/road rules challenges, working out, dumb stuff, reading, writing, yelling when i’m drunk, 80’s stuff… more to come…

I don’t like – people who walk slow, people who stop in the middle of the sidewalk, crowded trains, rain, meat, when i layer the toilet with paper and then it falls off… more to come…

Please send me all the hate/love letters you can to survivingmyself{at}gmail{dot}com. Seriously, I love reading other stuff, so don’t be shy.

Thanks for putting up with me. Believe me, I know it’s not pretty, but I hope you enjoy the blog anyway.

  1. A friend sent me a link to your site because she said reading it reminded her of me.

    We look pretty different, but I’m a big fan of your humor. And, your perspectives feel pretty familiar to me.

    Come check me out, and tell me what you think.

  2. argyle – Thanks. I’m gonna check it out now.

  3. All those things you don’t like?


    Except for meat. I do like me some meat.


  4. See, I used to not mind people who idled along on sidewalks or randomly stopped.

    Then I moved to New York for a year.

    Then I moved back to Seattle.

    Now I swear to god I want to kidney punch every dumbass that moves less than 10 mph.

    yeah, I’d have to agree.. slow people make me want to drown kittens.

  6. Where is the email me button?

  7. notsojenny

    when slow people randomly stop i like to run right into the back of them and act like i had no idea that was going to happen
    they’re asking for it

    … but i love meat. love meat. go meat!
    (this is some big comment font)

  8. I’ve only made it through a few pages, but have laughed out loud more times in the past few minutes than I have all week. You, sir, are a hero indeed.

  9. i don’t just love your blog because we’re both using pressrow. i love it because we share misanthropy. and you’re the only other person i know who’s indignant about static electricity. high-five for that.

  10. melissalion

    I just love that you’re sitting there with your iphone.

  11. Mallory

    i do like to eat oranges. in fact, i’m eating one right now.

  12. i also hate that toilet paper thing. but i firmly believe layering toilet paper is a better way to go than those flimsy seat covers provided. those are just insulting.

  13. i love your blog haha mate your hilarious
    keep it up

  14. Heidi

    Marry me?

    Seriously. You are The Shit. “The man was rocking roller skates.”

    You are a true American hero.

  15. Miz

    …What Heidi said! 🙂

  16. *officially added to teh blogroll*

  17. I’m going to be in Brooklyn next week. We should grab copious amounts of beer and discuss how funny we both are!

  18. iphone!

    Came here through freeandflawed. Like what I see so far (except about Angelina. You’re so wrong!)

  19. Nice intro! I’m new to the whole blog world but as you said ~ as this blog is an attempt to rid myself of the many thoughts that envelope my mind each day. I second that!!!

  20. I hate people that walk slow, too. Don’t get me started on the tourists in Midtown/Downtown/everywhere nyc that think it’s perfectly acceptable to stop in the middle of the sidewalk to decide where they want to eat.

    Kidney punches all the way.

  21. I hate when the toilet paper falls off too. Ever have it fall off twice in a row? Maddening!

  22. Sandy

    We have basically ALL of the same dislikes. Sometimes I think I have anger management issues when it comes to slow walkers/ drivers, because I literally want to flip out on them. I don’t, though.. you know, gotta make sure that nobody else knows I’ve got the a.m. issues..

  23. love the blog.
    you’re quite the interesting fellow.
    even when you try not to be so interesting.

  24. Love you, and think everyone else should to! Can I borrow your brain for a bit? I promise to return it (fingers crossed behind back)
    Gave you shoutout, check it out.

  25. Romina

    I came across your blog and I must say it’s very witty and made me laugh alot which caused a lot of strangers to turn around and stare at me in the very quiet computer lab.

  26. Hina

    you think sidewalks are bad? try going back to highschool.

  27. oh my… just stumbled here in a post-lunch blog surfing haze and am dumbfounded. best. blog. ever. linking to you asap.

  28. Love your writing.
    Thoughts ring true in almost every way.
    Can’t wait for more.


  29. You have a great blog here. 🙂

  31. How come I decide to check your blog like two days before the year finishes? haha, you’re definitely going to my list of blogs I read 😀 happy new year!

  32. hautepocket

    I hate all of the things on your ‘do not like’ list, except for rain. I love rain. What I do NOT love is how moronic people in Los Angeles become when it rains. Are they that way in Manhattan as well?

  33. I can’t believe it took me this long to find your blog.. you’re HYSTERICAL!

  34. I absolutely love your blog! And, as this award has just been bestowed upon me, I am passing along to you the Kreativ Blogger award- check out the post on my blog for the rules if you want to pass it along 🙂
