My Three O’Clock (The Double Header Continues)

I’m nearly to the front gate of the Philadelphia Zoo when I get a text from my three o’clock: he’s running late. This is not good.  Double headers only work if all of the players stick to the schedule and seeing as I’m trying to squeeze in not one but two dates before heading over…

My One O’Clock

My one o’clock has been pissing me off for the past week and a half—and we’ve not even met.  This is because he’s new to Philadelphia and as such, he’s just like me a year ago: no commitments aside from the occasional work meeting, nothing to do on weekends and more free time than a…

Oops, I Did it Again

Serial dating was a lot easier when I, you know, didn’t have a real job.  That’s not to say that I was unemployed last summer—I was writing and trying to get my act together and still managing to pay my rent despite all of my “I’m finding myself” shenanigans—but I had very few commitments of…

The result, in a word, was horrific. I will say this for Mattel: they’ve finally gotten the hang of the…

My Single Male Friend Friday: Meet Carl!

  It’s that time again: My Single Male Friend Friday!  Unlike last week, this week’s post is actually about one of my single male friends although if you’d rather read about my continued misadventures in the world of Match.com, check out my new column over at AOL’s City’s Best: Philadelphia. So, getting down to business:…

Another Scavenger Hunt!

It’s Scavenger Hunt Thursday here at After I Quit My Day Job.  In other words, my newest column will be up later today and I’ve had neither the time nor brain cells to write anything else.  As such, you’ll have to find another source of amusement between now and 4:00pm (sorry!) but perhaps you’ll enjoy…
