Tim is going to be blogging for Bad Idea Potluck from Brooklyn while his leg heals up from some surgery. He is a perfect writer for the potluck because, besides being a very funny guy, he, like many of us, is having kind of a stupid year. It's through no fault of his own but we aren't going to hold that against him. And, ladies, though he is single and largely immobile, both of these states are surely very temporary. I'm making him Bad Idea Icon of the Month.
