You know what’s awesome? I’ll tell you what’s awesome. A guy buying the cheap carnation bouquet from Costco at 7:30pm on Valentine’s Day night.

You know why it’s awesome? Because it’s not me doing it anymore.


Joanne and I are in the bathroom, getting dressed, and I look up and say, “You know what I’ve had stuck in my head all morning? The ‘WKRP’ theme song. You remember? ‘Baby, if you ever wondered—’”


“Wondered, whatever became of—”

“Stop it! Shut up!”

And so I shut up, and there’s a pause.

And then she says, “Dammit.”

Hi there! My name's GREG KNAUSS and I like to make things.

Some of those things are software (like Romantimatic), Web sites (like the Webby-nominated Metababy and The American People) and stories (for Web sites like Suck and Fray, print magazines like Worth and Macworld, and books like "Things I Learned About My Dad" and "Rainy Day Fun and Games for Toddler and Total Bastard").

My e-mail address is I'd love to hear from you!
