As you probably saw on the front page, my girlfriend and I broke up last week, putting me in the position of being single for the first time in more than a year.
It's weird. One of the things one evaluates after he or she has broken up with someone is what qualities attracted a person of the opposite sex to the other person in the first place.
So, I did what any other vulnerable, depressed, moderately insecure individual would do: write down a Playboy-esque list of all my qualities (both good and bad) and post them on the internet.
Name: Alex Taft
Weight: 170 lbs.
Looks good in: A tux (see above)
Looks bad in: Just about everything else.
Likes: Video games, movies, Apple computers, baseball, drinking Slurpees.
Dislikes: Drinking, drugs, loud music, parties, uber-conservatives, competition with the exception of the market and the sportin' field.
(And now, the talent portion of our Questionairre):
Do you think the bill of rights is
a good thing or a bad thing?
Uhh.... Good thing.
Is Microsoft a monopoly?
Is George W. Bush an idiot?
Why do you always end up getting political
in your columns on your website that only six people (all friends)
Because I am a politically active person, and am likely to argue with someone with whom I disagree. This website is a good way for me to voice my frustrations about the things that frustrate me; such as people wanting lower gas prices instead of clean air; people thinking the voucher system will solve our country's education problems; people who think that gay marriage should be illegal; ignorant, rich, white people who think that affirmative action should be done away with. I can be an angry person. This column is called The Weekly Complaint for a reason. By the way, did you hear I broke up with my girlfriend recently?
So, what is your solution to all of
Well, first the Cubs need to win a World Series. That will only be done once I have purchased the Cubs. After owning a baseball team for a few years, I figure I will have the political experience to run for Governor of Illinois, and eventually President. After all, nothing says Political Experience like owning a Major League Baseball team.
Come and get me, ladies.
