Don't send Evite reminders
An important fact about me is that I’m an avid reader of relationship self-help books (and I’m not afraid to admit it or offer suggestions on which of these books I think would benefit your current situation). One of the key lessons that all of the books has taught is hard to get. And let me tell you - this is not just for romantic relationships. It applies to Evite too. ...
Don't ruin Pinterest for me with mashup vernacular
Alright. I get it. I love Pinterest too. Now I have a go to move every time I see something pretty, but not quite interesting enough to inspire actual words. I just want to stop the following before it happens: Let’s not start making mashup words with Pinterest like we did with Twitter. Nothing is “Pinteresting,” “Pinspirational” or “Pintastic,”...
Park at The Parking Spot
So a bit of practical unsolicited advice, for a change. Park at the Parking Spot. This goes right along with some future advice (go on vacation all the time). To start with, riding in a cab to LAX is a guaranteed way to put you in a bad mood for your trip. The traffic, the ticking meter, the Designer Impostor cologne. Not worth it.

Generally, I do not enjoy exercise. On most days, I tolerate it. On my best days, I perhaps even like it. But even if there was ever a moment that I loved exercise, I’ve never loved exercise. This...
"Money comes and goes: spend it like you got it"
In college, a good friend of mine once said “Money comes and goes: spend it like you got it.” It’s important to note that this friend was not a financial advisor, and that she really only intended it to be applied to the conversation at hand (which was: do we buy a plastic bottle of vodka, or a classy handle of Smirnoff?). I don’t think she realized that I...
Work out in the middle of the day
I’m assuming the whole lottery advice was a bust for you as it was for me. I’m very realistic: anyone who has $300+ million dollars has better things to be doing than reading this blog (like cashing in the money for gold tokens and swimming through it, Scrooge McDuck-style). Wasn’t it a great thrill, though, until the second number was called? For that reason alone,...
