It's true. I've been even more bitter than usual as of late. Though I suspect a lot of it comes from employment search frustration, I'm fairly certain some of it also comes from a Vitamin Peen deficiency in my diet.
Sure, there are ways to deal with all this: exercise, booze, Craigslist casual encounters. But I choose to focus on some more creative endeavors like this blog, my still-being-constructed portfolio site, and contributing vitriolic ideas to my new favorite Tumblr blog: Fuck What You Like.
When they land their book deal, I want a piece. And if you see me, feel free to throw a job, some dick or mind-enhancing substances my way. In that order.

Everyone's been making a big deal out of Star Trek's Chris Pine (who, by the way, is the son of C.H.i.P.s' very own Sgt. Joseph Getraer, Robert Pine), but my eyes—and loins—are too busy being captivated by the dude who played his dad in the movie, Australian actor Chris Hemsworth.
Even more amazing: according to reports, Chris will be playing Marvel Comics' Thor in the Kenneth Branagh-directed adaptation set to hit theatres in 2011. Adding to this already heightened nerd cred, the 25-year-old will also be starring in the remake of Red Dawn, plus the Joss Whedon/Drew Goddard-written horror flick, The Cabin in the Woods.
Problem is, I don't think I can wait that long to see him again. And since my birthday is coming up, I'm thinking Chris should just holler at me. First time is always free ;)
