So, Enough About Me, What Do You Think About Me?

Posted by on September 23 at 9:58 AM

In this morning’s PI, columnist Joel Connelly compliments the Stranger’s election endorsements, calling them “sharp and well-reasoned.” Thanks, Joel. I was pretty proud of this year’s Stranger picks.

However, Connelly goes on to trash me for being “me-centric.” He’s got a point. I’ve definitely been going a little first-person crazy lately, veering off into Philip Dawdy territory.

However, there is someone in town who writes about me more than I do. Joel Connelly!!!

It’s flattering, but it’s getting a little creepy, Joel. Most recently, I think, you criticized a blog post I did about the 34th District Democrats candidate forum.

Although, one time you compared me to Matt Dillon. That made my week. I forwarded that story to my mom and to every girl that I ever dated. I even sent it to Jill Shanholtz, this one girl from my high school that I wanted to date, but I didn’t because Jill liked my best friend Lee even though Lee was gay and I wasn’t.

At least, I don't think I was, and I've never been sure what Jill thought of the whole thing.
