I took a vacation day from work to write, drink coffee, and eat cinnamon coffee cake. Writing – real writing, not the usual tweeting or Facebook posting – is the first thing I tend to sacrifice for all of life’s other needs. I knew I needed to take a day just for myself. To reconnect […]
When I’m in a group and someone in the group asks if anyone’s seen movie “X”. If I haven’t seen movie “X” I will immediately attempt to distract the conversation with some form of an observational question of one of the group’s members. It comes off as a side conversation, but the group tends to […]
I have pet peeves, like anyone else. Grocery stores tend to bring out the worst of mine. I think it’s mostly because it’s the mecca of food. So, obviously, you become hungry while walking the aisles and salivating over all that we could devour. And as we all know, nothing creates crankiness like hunger pains. […]
I’ve never been a morning person. The alarm clock is scarier than any George Romero movie I’ve ever seen. But the older I get, the better I’m getting at naturally waking up early on the weekends. Don’t get me wrong. During the work week, my body wants to sleep until the afternoon because it knows […]
I get it. Nobody wants to get older. Every other commercial is about hiding wrinkles, having smoother skin and taking years off your face.

I almost enjoy a woman more, who is bundled up in winter clothing. Almost. Their essence is expressed in how they choose to layer. And you’re left to your imagination in order to figure out who is underneath it all. It’s one of the things that gets me through the long, almost unbearable, winter months. […]
Growing up, I watched lots of horror movies. The same thing always happened toward the end of these movies. The killer would be lying on the ground, supposedly lifeless at the hands of the sweet-faced heroine. But she was never satisfied with merely killing the slasher. She was always compelled to take a peak under […]
Make no mistake, I will judge you if: you are still turning on your Christmas lights you even smirk at a single frame of the tv spots for Tooth Fairy you have the last name Reinhold.
Nowadays, if you talk to a high schooler about Shop class, do they just assume you’re talking about Photoshop? Trick question. It doesn’t matter. Chris Hansen approaches you and asks you to take a seat, regardless. What are you doing talking to a high schooler?
