I bet you didn’t expect this …

Sometimes progress looks like a pie chart. But rarely.

Dear Crabby

I’ve always wanted to run an advice column–well, “always” being the last two weeks. An unfortunate side effect of my attention span being the size of Tyrion Lannister is that my dreams and aspirations are short lived.  On the plus side, failure is infrequent because there is no time for it.  Initially (two weeks ago), […]

Groupisson

I’ve gotten some good deals on Groupon and helped screw over jump start numerous businesses around the area by investing in these deals.  Once Groupon started offering goods, I developed a healthy collection of junk that I didn’t need and/or know I wanted, including this: Although this is clearly a must-have in any woman’s purse (presumably […]

thank you, I think …

I started this blog immediately after quitting Facebook, primarily as a means through which to ensure that my emotionally charged neuroses have an outlet that is not my office or my shitty, over-priced, and dog-shit ridden apartment complex.  See, an outburst on par with those I am capable of having could send me to jail […]

everybody get together

Amidst the political, economic, religious, and social tension dividing our society and making our neighbors more akin to strangers than ever before, I want to remind everyone of a simple truth.  We should not be divided into Democrats or Republicans, pro-life or pro-choice, liberal or conservative, Christian or Muslim.  There are, in fact, only two […]

cats in your dancing pants

Summer 2013 is the summer of love, at least for a few of my friends whose long-awaited weddings are finally occurring.  Single-lady cynicism aside, weddings are my time to shine–on the dance floor, at least.  No one makes 6 inch heels and the Chicken Dance look sexier and more inappropriate than I, which is why […]

move over iRobot-Roomba 650!

I received an interesting petition request from a policy group to which I belong–the pertinent part is as follows: “Last week we told you about these killer robots – fully autonomous machines, operating without human reason and without human compassion. It might sound like science fiction, but the danger is real, and these robots represent […]

every Tuesday is fat for me

I have never been accused of being a religious person, in fact the only discussions on religion I start or engage in are during awkward cocktail parties, right after same-sex marriage but before politics.  I do, however, like to jump on the religious bandwagon when doing so would amuse me or would result in me […]

Dear Readers,

I am SO sorry for my unannounced absence these last two weeks! Sometimes you just have to take a vacation, get out there, and enjoy the freedom of living life day-to-day.  What I mean by that, of course, is that I am still sick and, at this point, simply enjoying being alive because there isn’t […]

post- Chri$tma$ report

It’s the day after Christmas and millions of Americans are officially broke. Many are also disappointed in that World’s Best Dad tie from their son, 30-pack of underwear from their mother, or unidentifiable house plant from their husband. Well, that’s what you get for confusing Santa Christ with Jesus Claus, and commercializing a holiday that’s […]

Dear Mom, here’s the truth

Daily Prompt: Dear Mom Write a letter to your mom. Tell her something you’ve always wanted to say, but haven’t been able to. Dear Mom, With all that I have achieved so far in life, professionally and personally, it makes me happy to know that I have been able to make you proud.  Please keep all […]

For those of you not blogging on WordPress, and who have somehow found their way onto this blog, there is a statistics function whereby you can track a number of incredibly relevant and usually depressing statistics.  You’ll remember—maybe not so much—when I wrote about the view-by-country statistics.  Well, another one that I find truly interesting […]
