I chatted with Aimee this morning, and we've also set up a Give InKind page: link.

There's a link to the meal train there as well. We'll use the Give InKind page for more gift card options and setting up help for household tasks and rides and other things she may need.

Woe to the fucking wicked.

Ok, I finally got my act together and made the FB Event. Chicago-types, this Sunday, we'll be at Maggie Daley Park ( for, lo, there is a toddler, and playgrounds are good) from about 4:30 to 6:30. FB messenger is probably the best way to get ahold of me on the day, but my current profile email will also work.

Hi All. It's my annual Please Throw an Entrepreneur a Bone request.

It's like Girl Scout cookies without the calories or the coin, and I would be grateful for your help to reach the type of people who have become my favorite clients over the years. 80% of my non-personal referrals every year. After 2020, this is the most important part of my business year.

Please help!

At this LINK, scroll down 9 ballots and click on Bonny King-Taylor. The City Paper NEVER uses your email for anything. I know the person who runs the campaign and she is solid.

I need the Buffistas to activate for me on twitter. Ice is up against zircon in the 2021 Mineral Cup and ice is barely holding on to its lead with 2 hours left in voting. I'm begging - please vote #IceMin for me and Yuzuru Hanyu. Vote #IceMin!

Greece's financial crisis threatens to take down all of Western civilization - a civilization they themselves founded. A rather tragic irony - which is something they also invented. - Jon Stewart

I am looking for a roommate for my place in Washington Heights, NYC.

Its a 12x14 quiet, sunny room with its own half-bath. Freshly (yet tastefully) renovated apartment with brand new kitchen. Elevator building. Close to parks & trains. $1250.
