I am a fairly decent human being who is rapidly aging. I shave with the hope of being carded at bars.

I appreciate a good laugh, especially at the expense of other people.

I’ve stopped talking to animals. Well, okay, not completely.

I live in the rain puddle of America called Portland. That’s in Oregon, the state that brought you such frightening wonders as the Ducks, the Beavers, and the Trail Blazers.

I love to read and write. These days, I’m also learning math.

I consider coffee shops and breakfast diners safe havens. It’s where I would go in the likely event of a nuclear fallout.

I hate David Spade and Chevy Chase.

I love appreciate hashbrowns periodically.

I believe Stephen King is a prophet, as are Dan Brown and Harlan Coben.

I still believe in no longer watch am watching “Heroes” again. Go Screw you Way to go, Tim Kring!

I aspire to be a professional “Before” model. You know, the one who would pose for the “Before Weight Loss,” “Before Plastic Surgery,” “Before Viagra” pictures– those kinds of things. Yeah, I would strike it rich with that gig.

I hated P.E. but loved to wear short shorts.

I think voyeurism is so underrated.

p.s. “Jon” is my nickname.

    Portland, OR? I envy you. Lived there briefly from 1996-1998. I absolutely loved the place but my husband was tired of the rain.

    Oh, Portland’s great; it’s why I moved back after being gone for 6 years. Yeah, the rain can get anybody down but who needs sunshine 24/7. C’mon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh, Portland, OR. VERY, very nice place. I love coffee houses… Thanks for visiting my blog. I am not on a rant, just merely doing some research. My partner loves Katie and well, I do too. I just miss the way she used to look. I am going to check out your blog now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    thanks for leaving kind words of wisdom on my blog. Funny, I keep trying to get away from oregon, but she just keeps finding me wherever I go, lol (i moved from Salem last year and now live in Austin, TX).

    i was surprised to see your comment on my blog – it came just minutes after i posted about the injustice on craigslist. really glad to know you’re in. please spread the word!

    God Bless,
    Dan

    Hey Jon- Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Funny that you are from Portland – as I am from Seattle. Also, you are the only other person I know that has a Billy Bragg song on any of their playlists…

  10. 12 jonsquared January 20, 2008 at 7:20 pm

    Aaron – How are you doing with helping to spread Spatred (tm Aaron Ivey)?

    Goodbear – I had me some hashbrowns today. They were quite tasty.

    trh – A rant a day keeps the hernia away.

    Poinciana – Portland has an emerging food scene. I’m not surprised the Food Network loves us. ๐Ÿ™‚

    omystars – I’ll have to check out King’s “On Writing.” I’ve heard about it but just never got around to finding it.

    danso – Still banning Craigslist.

    drdrandrews – Billy Bragg rules!

    you are incorrect about david spade (excellent HBO standup special a while back) and chevy chase (Fletch!). Aside from that you’re a winner in my book!

    Cheers for reading my comic

  12. 14 woodmasterflash January 20, 2008 at 9:31 pm

    Irregarding your comment on my blog, it is a pleasure to make your acquaintance, sir.

  13. 15 jonsquared January 21, 2008 at 6:14 am

    tizersoze – I’m glad I’m a winner in your book. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    woodmasterflash – Cheers!

    How nice to be welcomed to the world of blogging by a stranger’s encouraging comment. Thanks for making the time. BTW, loved your tipping advice. If only everyone would be so thoughtful! ~Sunshine

    Hash browns, Stephen King, Dan Brown, and Harlan Coben… we have quite a bit in common there! And I loved my one visit to Portland. It didn’t rain hardly at all on that trip!

  18. 20 jonsquared March 1, 2008 at 6:30 pm

    @ bibomedia – ๐Ÿ™‚

    @ saintpaulgrrl – How do you feel about brussel sprouts? I’m glad that it hardly rained during your Portland visit. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    “I aspire to be a professional โ€œBeforeโ€ model.”

    You know what I find really sad about those before and after weight loss pictures? I actually aspire to look as good as the before pictures. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    โ€œBefore Viagraโ€ picturesโ€“ I’ll pass on viewing those thank you very much. ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. 23 ilovemyorangekitchen March 19, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    Just shocked someone actually read one of my posts — especially shocked that a post about a recipe for fried rice being too salty could make you hungry — and having a look around. I’ll have to see what I have in the way of hash brown recipes now that you have me thinking of them.

  21. 24 jonsquared March 19, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    @ ilovemyorangekitchen – Mmm, hashbrowns…

  22. 25 J March 26, 2008 at 11:35 pm

    lol – you’re hilarious! glad I chanced upon your blog (through WP Pinoys)

  23. 26 jonsquared March 27, 2008 at 4:15 am

    @ J – Glad you found my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. 27 james April 27, 2008 at 9:29 am

    Thanks for visiting my blog. And thanks for your refreshing sense of humor. I have long thought people could make it rich being a “Before” model.

    peace,
    james

  25. 28 jonsquared April 28, 2008 at 5:05 pm

    @ james – Thanks for stopping by. ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. 29 Bryan April 30, 2008 at 8:12 pm

    Okay, I finally have the courage to ask. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The name of your blog is “Jon’s Other Blog”. So where can we find your original blog?

  27. 30 jonsquared May 1, 2008 at 4:11 am

    @ Bryan – Hehe. I was blogging on two servers for a while. I’ve since retired the original blog and am blogging here exclusively. I’ll give you detective points if you find my original blog. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. 31 tam June 9, 2008 at 8:10 am

    hey Jon…Mandy and me have another vid up on the MTTV site. we answered your question from the last video btw ๐Ÿ˜€

  29. 32 jonsquared June 9, 2008 at 6:48 pm

    @ tam – Yes! I made it into an MTTV vlog! Yeah, baby!

  30. 33 Bryan June 24, 2008 at 12:18 pm

    Wow, I like your new header picture. Your surgery turned out very well. I have to say you are downright smokin’ hot now!

  31. 34 jonsquared June 24, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    Thanks, Bryan! It’s amazing what $100,000 of disposable income can do. Oh, and by the way, bite me.

  32. 35 that girl June 27, 2008 at 6:34 am

  33. 36 jonsquared June 27, 2008 at 9:12 pm

  34. 38 jonsquared July 15, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    Hmm, I knew I should’ve deleted that other blog. Sigh. Jig’s up. For the record–I am no longer an American Idol fan. Thanks, Princess…

  35. 39 princess1236 July 16, 2008 at 3:40 am

  40. 45 Miranda January 19, 2009 at 10:58 am
