tmi friday?! macgyver style.

A bunch of DC-area bloggers recently began engaging in what I believe LivitLuvit dubbed "TMI Thursdays." Since I'm not really all that anonymous, I've opted to keep my TMI-style stories to myself. Until now.

And although this hardly -- or at all -- delves into the body-fluid-centered stories of my e-compatriots (examples of which you can read here, here and, if you dare, here), the story I wrote recently for The Smart Set illuminates some dark, cold corners of my life before DC or "BDC," as it were.

To give you a preview, it starts off with me rolling out of a silver Mercedes in St. Petersburg in 2003. Did I mention it was moving? Because it was.

And please do enjoy it; forward it to your friends and family; commission me to write an article for your publication; give me a book deal, or at least get another LOL at my expense.

From both of us (BDC and ADC -- that's after DC, of course),

We'll see you in hell. :)

WOW. Just wow. Makes my bodily fluid stories seem a wee bit less significant...

And also VERY GLAD I've never had a gun pulled on me. I'll take a little period-mishap over that anyday.

I am speechless. That sets the standard for TMI too high for us all, and is such a totally awesome and bad ass story.

You rule.

WHAT?! Outrageous!!! Tell me the Viktor Tsoi kids are still there at least!

It's amazing though how different people's perspectives can be over there. I look back and it's more like, "Holy sh*t. I really should've worried more..."

On the note re: trauma. Um, I think you win. The fear of TSS will always win. And might I add, you have some gigantic balls (the proverbial kind, clearly) for telling those stories. I'm beginning to think we should collab on a sitcom...

Thanks! Although I don't know how "awesome" it is compared to simply "irresponsible" or "idiotic." But I think it is a bit badass. As far as TMI, though, I don't think I've raised any bars. (See above.)

That very same thing happened to me the last time I went to Glasgow.
