plum head of the week 5.14.08

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

i'm a bit tired from an awesome wine tasting event with court and georgia peach last night and a bit busy at work today, so you gotta love lunch break blogging.

i mean i have to post something today or my favorite poo poo will send me hate emails. xoxo

good thing today is plum head day and my dear friend captain joe p tone is going to do the work for me!

captain joe was the first guy friend i really became close with upon moving to cleveland. he was newer to the area as well and worked in my office (be it on the way other side of my office). it wasn't long before captain joe, bird and i were out causing tons of trouble throughout the warehouse district and cleveland in general.

since captain joe was lucky enough to snag a freaking awesome girlfriend (hi miss mel!) i have seen less of the prowling "where are all the ladies at" joe and more of the lovey dovey i'm going to stay in and cuddle joe.

which isn't a bad thing, mel is great for him, i just like to bust his balls that he doesn't hang out as much.

thankfully for cleveland's sake joe has emerged from his hibernation and is ready to entertain us all for the summer.

oh and did i mention that this friend of mine also happens to be the managing editor of Scene Magazine and is really freakin' talented - and don't forget hilarious.

so there was my ode to joe, don't worry he gives himself some more odes throughout his plum head questionnaire answers.

i heart you captain joe!!! xoxo

Where are you typing from?

My secret bunker at 1468 W. 9th Street, overlooking the most crooked part of this crooked city’s crooked river. Unasked but worth noting is that I just returned from Dish Global Deli on West 25th, where my life was changed by an off-the-menu Turkey Club. I’ll never taste another herb mayo again.

Professional typer.

Relationship Status:
Lucky to have found someone who tolerates an herb-mayo-eating typing professional.

How do you know me?
Former Scene cohorts, kickball teammates, and partners in gallivanting.

If you had to sell Cleveland to someone, what would you say?
It’s a nice size: big enough to keep you interested and busy, but small enough that there’s nothing – no restaurant, no event, no bar, no person – you can’t experience within a week of deciding you want to experience it/him/her.

What’s your favorite part about Cleveland?
Aside from the aforementioned manageability, I’m quite fond of the price of beer here. And Awesomefest.

If you had a last meal on earth what would it be?
Probably the half-rack-of-ribs combo from Malibu Grill in San Jose, California. Hands down the Best Restaurant Tucked Between a 7-11 and a Dry Cleaner.

What’s your signature wedding drink?
Tanqueray and Tonic.

Would you rather be the celebrity or in the entourage?
I imagine the celebrity sometimes wishes he was in the entourage, and vice versa. Me? I’d rather be anonymously rich.

Dream vacation destination?
Today: Los Gatos, California.

Favorite restaurant? (preferably in Cleveland)
Presently: Crop, Reddstone, and Lolita (during happy hour).

What’s your favorite blog (besides cleveland’s a plum)?
C-Notes, the group blog of Scene magazine – especially the restaurant, music, and sports

Least favorite day of the week?
Sunday. There’s always homework to do for Monday.

What’s the oddest thing you have ever publicly witnessed?
Nothing springs to mind, but the two Indians fans who, after bickering with Red Sox fans, ended up fighting each other at the recent game was fairly strange. I wish I could tell you more, but … oh wait! I wrote about it for my second-favorite blog, C-Notes!

What’s the next big thing you are looking forward to?
A July wedding in Savannah, Georgia.

What is a juicy bit of information that you think your fellow plum heads should know about me?
You’re a highly skilled kickball bunter.


  1. Oh my goodness, the most eloquently written Plum Head survey EVERY! you put my typing to shame Cap't Joe.

    Wine tasting was so fun! We need to do that again!

    I like wine:)

  2. You're a kickball bunter?!?!

    I can't believe it. My favorite Cleveland person ever bunts at kickball. LeBron is pissed.

  3. I broke my ankle trying to bunt a kickball. Just don't do it with the bottom of your foot, even if it's a sure-fire way to get on 1st.

    I feel the same way about Sunday. Once 5:00 rolls around, it's hard to enjoy it.

  4. I miss Captain Joe too!!!

    Captain Joe, do you think we can split a bacon, egg & cheese Panini's sando soon? Remember when this was an every weekend (sometimes twice a weekend) occurance, and a couple times we just "happened" to run into each other right outside around 2:35 am??

  5. Dang Straight! Now that is the kind of dedication I like to see Lexy poo. Still can't figure out googles and RSS. You crazy kids and technology today, I tell ya!

  6. Bunting is a highly underrated skill.

    Yo go girl. Go where? I have no idea, but you go there when you figure it out.

  7. Oooh, that's a fun one. I have to guest post next week ... maybe I'll use it??!!

  8. I just might have to try the aforementioned Turkey Club, though the Big Popper @ Melt is calling my name...

  9. Thank you for many morning laughs at the office... I LOVE your blog and want you to know you are a GREAT writer!!! My husband says this is proof that I have NO life...loyalty to a blog...
    Thanks for all the smiles and laughs...


Comments are cool. This is a fact.
