Tip for meeting strangers in public

I was chatting with a lovely group of people yesterday at one of my Coffees and the topic of meeting strangers in public came up, more specifically, how awkward it can be and how easy it can be to avoid said-awkwardness.  This seems a very applicable topic in this era of relationships birthed via social Read more…

How many GBs in that thing, baby?

You wouldn’t think this external hard drive would be an avenue to procuring dates, but it’s led to me being asked out more than any sassy skirt or flip of the hair ever has.   When I’m editing video projects in the coffeehouse-world, guys often use them as conversation-starters.  It’s like bumming a cigarette or commenting Read more…
