What’s happening out there? Tell me all about what you’ve been up to. Also, answer these questions (yes, lurkers, especially you). I’ll know if you’re lying or holding out on me.
CLT’s resident sexpert is having a day today. Take it away, Robert Palmer.
How are things? Where have you been? What have you been listening to? What’s worth reading? Let’s chat. My son and I are home today watching, I suspect, Kung Fu Panda 1, 2, & 3 over and over again. Gary Oldman is a pretty amazing peacock, but I wonder if him seeing so many movies where the protagonist’s parents die is…
Let’s bond in an undemanding way. Give your answers below:
There’s a birthday to be celebrated, CLT.Bonus points if your songs are “Thunder” or “Lips” inspired.
Analysis of Gawker will get boring soon, but I love it when ex staffers feel the need to reflect with varying degrees of subtlety to their self-aggrandising. Short read here.

Are there gifs you’ve discovered and love, but don’t often have the occasion to use? I wish I had more news where I could reply with this kangaroo. Also, for those of you following along with my editing saga: great news—my brother got 87% on his thesis! Woo! What good news have you had lately?
someone who once commented upon these shores? I’ve forgotten her name but I recall a few things about her, though maybe the passage of time has given me rose-coloured glasses. Share your memories and maybe we could piece together who it is.
