Please Unextend That Metaphor, Arianna

huff629.jpgYahoo’s Scott Moore interviews Huff Daddy, and it gets pretty sexy:

Scott: I’ve been at Yahoo! a grand total of 8 weeks. Yahoo! today is literally at the intersection of Silicon Valley techno-culture and Hollywood media. Quite interesting, actually. Both camps are simultaneously intrigued and repelled. I expect we’ll produce beautiful children eventually, but the mating rituals can be awkward.

Arianna: My theory is that you should go ahead, hop into bed, follow that passion… then work out who does the dishes and who takes out the trash later! And speaking of mating rituals, I love that we are the first blog you’ve had on Yahoo! They say you never forget your first!

Um, that’s not a literal intersection. Anyway, given Huffington’s marriage history, I can only assume she knows from awkward mating rituals. And as for who takes out the trash and does the dishes in her household, my guess is it’s the help.

The interview even gets weirder:

Scott: As a new Angelino, what three things do I need to keep in mind to survive, thrive and achieve bliss on the beach? In Seattle there’s a coffee shop on every corner. Here, there are yoga studios. Is yoga the answer to life?

Arianna: Bliss on the Beach, is that a new cocktail? I personally think the answer to life in LA is doing yoga while watching Meet the Press, then posting your comments to our weekly Russert Watch blog. That’s how I spend my Sunday mornings. You should join me next week…


And since I hear you’re newly eligible, after you’ve settled in, I’ll set you up with someone. One hint for dating out here: never ask if they’re real. They’re probably not.
