Monday Hangover - 4.27.09

brooklyn_flea.jpgWith the weather turning the corner over the weekend and Steve's Word back in the saddle, we thought this might be a good time to switch up some of our Monday Hangover Questions.  I know you must be aghast at this, but it's true; something in our bones told us that everyone answering the "what were you most looking forward to g

crank- What about the previous work week were you most looking forward to getting away from?

Just in case some of you don't know, I was recently promoted to the position of day time manager at the Mega Gristedes on E. 86th St. b/w 1st and 2nd Aves. They only have me at 25 hours/week, but whatever. It gives me more time to work on my beats. Y'all, Thursday night was wild. I usually work from 8am-4pm, but Jose, the manager who was supposed to relieve me asked if I could cover for him until 8pm. I was pissed! I had plans to hit up happy hour at Aces and Eights with my homeboy Julius. He and I get nasty on the Beer Pong table on Thursday nights. Bitches swoon when I sink that last cup and Julius and I perform our patented victory dance. It's a cross between the Ickey Shuffle and the Superman . Anyways, I also knew that we had 4 fucking deliveries coming in that evening and a new Stoneyfield Farms Yogurt display to set up at the front of the store. I hate that shit. I usually have to construct these elaborate cardboard displays and they never have any instructions. Like I know how to piece together a three-dimensional cardboard dairy cow. Plz. To make a hella long story madd short. I missed happy hour beer pong (Julius was mad as fuck) and Jose never showed. Apparently his live-in sister-in-law was in some sort of INS raid and he had to help her out. I had to work until Midnight. Even though I made that Stoneyfield Farm display look gangsta and people were buying delicious smoothies and organic yogurt left and right that night, I was still eager for the weekend.

See You Monday

strokin_itWe've decided to take a little breather here at Steve's Word in the writing department. We will be back next Monday April 20th with brand new material. We went balls to the wall with the March Madness bracket and need to take a step back for a moment. There's a lot of exciting stuff brewing for you so don't go too far. You'll be happy to know that we shot a video this past weekend and that will be coming your way the first week in May.

Guys We’re Gay For II

• Tim - Cristiano Ronaldo

Two time FA Footballer of the year. Lavished with even more awards. 41 goals in all competitions last year. He plays with grace and power and pinache. Moreover, have you seen his rippling mocha-toned thighs? Just think what he could do in the bedroom or the VIP room at some swanky Manchester club. Check it out his skills here: Compilation. Cristiano Ronaldo is the best footballer on the planet. Love him or hate him, watching him play is to watch art in motion and that's why I'm way gay for him.

The Re-Up: How to Blow a Done Deal

done_dealThe other day I got a surprising letter from one of our faithful readers. Allow me to paraphrase, if I may:

Dear Tim @ Steve’s Word,

Love the site. You’re my favorite writer. Keep up the good work. Anyway, I’ve got a little problem, a big problem actually, that I think you are probably most apt to offering some sort of helpful advice.

Internet Bad-Asses to Co-Host Online Travel Show

key1.jpgIt all started back in January when our Los Angeles-based contributor Sinan G. suggested we holla at his friend Kate.  Being a bunch of affable fellows, how could we refuse?

It just so happens that Kate is the host of an online travel show called Key to Your City.  Key to Your City focuses on the "locals only" hotspots that don't show up in guidebooks, the kinds of places a friend takes you to when you visit them in their city.  The point is to highlight places that exemplify all the cultural, musical and artistic treasures that each city the show visits has to offer, to give viewers a real sense of what it's like to live in a place, to understand the flavor that makes a city itself and not some place else.  Their previous episode took place in Austin, make sure to get a look at those clips here.

But what on earth does any of this have to do with Steve's Word?

As a freelancer, this is a difficult question to answer right now.  Today is the last day of a three-month stint at a place I very much enjoy working at, but it's be

Tucking in my shirt.

What were you most looking forward to this weekend?

It's winterish and all, so my weekend demands are pretty simple nowadays. A couple extra hours of sleep, the joy of not-shaving, and maybe a movie or something.
