Effortlessly Average

Sort of half-heartedly leading the charge into mediocrity since, oh, let's say around 1987 or so.

Proof that with internet access and a powerful laxative, even insipid people will blog; the place where your excellence and my mediocrity collide; where my Karma whips ass on your dogma.

A Guy By Any Other Girls Name...

As only a guy whose parents wanted a girl would know, here are ten often overlooked benefits of being a guy with a woman's name.

  1. Assignment to the women's dorm in college.
  2. Toughened by a childhood of regular beatings.
  3. Thanks to registration fraud, the co-ed softball team is stacked.
  4. Actually getting selected from the backstage list to meet the band.
  5. Direct mail marketing from lingerie companies.
  6. Nobody suspects you're the jerk parked in the handicapped spot when the name is announced over the store PA system.
  7. Weaseling out of Selective Service.
  8. Scoring an interview at Legs Legs Legs strip club.
  9. Oratorical skills honed to a fine edge from daily speech explaining how, in Europe, there are plenty of men with your name.
  10. Getting to hear a billion times: "wow, I know a girl named..."
