But as I dragged the board back to the beach a guy did ask if I wanted to buy weed or blow. Just before I was offered the drug buffet I was stalking dolphins. I was pretty close to two of them when I remembered they weight 600 pounds. I had learned that the day before at the Cabo Dolphin Encounter. A friend of mine is a dolphin trainer there. So we got to swim with them. It's a thrill ride. My girlfriend Lisa almost lost her bikini bottom. Now that I'm home I'm trying to right the ship.
I blame my mother for this twisted fantasy. She's always helping somebody. As a child I remember her driving the nuns around. The same nuns that made my sisters kneel on frozen peas if their uniform skirts were too short. And you know my skirts were going to be too short. I was on a house build with members of my church. I knew nothing about building houses, and not much about church. But I wanted to pass on lessons I had learned from my mom to my son. Lessons like: Volunteer. Help someone.
I wasn't in the bathroom. But close. Too close. Last row. Lavatory adjacent. This is what happens when you decide to fly to Israel two days before you go. But I had the whole row. I was reclining with my wine. Eating peanuts and watching that movie where the shark tries to eat Blake Lively.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
