Patty Hagge and writers of the great wide world, find your place on this Venn Diagram. Maybe this could hang at a certain writing center for easy reference? :http://www.greatwhitesnark.com/2010/03/25/difference-between-nerd-dork-and-geek-explained-in-a-venn-diagram/

It's not even June yet, and the Cubs are officially the worst team in baseball. Let the moral victories begin. They won today--watch out, Padres, we're gunning for you. 

Portlanders: really cool person coming here for an event with wife and baby. Anyone know anyone who will be out of town and would share their house June 15-17/18?
