I bought a new cactus with my roomy. He has funny leaves. (Cactuses are mostly boys, right?) He is replacing Prometheus Maximus, the single, most boring cactus ever, who died tragically and unexpectedly after being carelessly sprayed by the bug exterminator.

I named the new cactus Carlos Danger.

He is an African Milk Tree Plant, according to Google, and according to my friend, also has poisonous sap.

Note to self: Do not ever ever lick Carlos Danger.

Happy Second Birthday to My Failed Anthony Weiner Tumblr!

My Failed “I am Anthony Weiner” Project. What I Learned about Social Movements.

I’ve actually met the Anthony Weiner press manager involved in the other mini-scandal. But I don’t want to link to articles about it because I’ve actually been caught on here talking about people I know “behind their back” before; you can go look it up yourself if you want. (She seemed like a pleasant person at the time.)

I also knew one of Weiner’s former key interns who has since quit the campaign in shame and heavy emotional resignation. That reminds me of something Weiner himself should do…

I think he’ll make it through the run-off, but not by much.

I got an e-mail from Tumblr today:

I am Anthony Weiner turned 2 today!
We hope it was a great year, and we look forward to sharing many more!

I wrote about this a couple years ago, but just in case you missed it:

Basically, I tried to start a “I Am Bradley Manning” Tumblr, expect for Anthony Weiner and with crotch shots: http://iamanthonyweiner.tumblr.com/

I thought there was a chance it might blow up. There was another crotch pics for Weiner website that pretty much copied me.

Both websites turned out to be epic failures.

I was thinking about opening it up again since Weiner recently came back to life with a bid for mayor of New York City. But now I feel like it’s too late. I made the Tumblr before the drama in which he came out as a liar.

If you’re a couple years behind on the Weiner news, Wikipedia has your back:

I don’t feel like Anthony Weiner has a huge shot right now anyway. He probably could have survived the dick pic scandal on pride alone if only he hadn’t freaked out and and then lied about being hacked. So RIP, “I am Anthony Weiner” Tumblr. You had potential, just like Anthony Weiner himself.

Full disclosure:

I am a registered NYC voter now. (I was an NJ resident before. But now am a Brooklynite.) I am actually voting for Christine Quinn, but for reasons other than dick pics.
