Tooting my horn
« on: June 15, 2006, 08:57:06 AM »
hell, if I could do THAT, I would not be online so often.


Thanks, I'll be here through Tuesday. Try the fish.

I got a little thingy published on the POZ mag for July. Not much, but a start. Here's the link:


Just saying.

I am so glad you found another avenue for your impecible talents.  Somehow, I miss "JKINATL 2" when he is in one of his "blank" times, and this shows that you/he are still sharp, still awake, and still very much a talented wordsmith.

Thank you Jonathan, and I think POZ magazine is very lucky to have you as a contributor.

Well done Mr. K.

Only a masterful wordsmith such as yourself could combine condoms and kung pao!   :D

Congrats on your publishing achievement, hope it's only the first of many!

I loved it. You said a lot in a short piece that was infused with colorful metaphor and delightful imagery.

You also made me hungry, in several senses of the word.

By the way, I know people who pay good money to watch people toot their own horn!  :o

Interesting article Jonathon,

I remember a guy in L.A. (WEHO)  who could blow his own horn (standing up).  If I could do that, I would never date again...
Wait a minute, Stop the press, I just remembered, I don't date!  Oh silly me, a day without sex is like breakfast without orange juice.
