The Velvet Rule

Here’s the thing, people. If I see any of you wearing a velvet vest this Fall – especially over a weird, badly proportioned v-neck T-shirt – well, let’s just say that you and I will be due for a reckoning. Our relationship may never be the same. Counseling might not save us. Do not wear […]

Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone?

I did not realize I had a bus girlfriend until this morning. I was doing my usual semi-concious stare out the window on the eastbound leg of my commute when I felt my heart jump into my throat. The bus had just finished loading and the driver was waiting for the light to change when […]


Color us excited! (in a should-be-ashamed-but-have-decided-not-to-be-ashamed-cuz- this-show-is-totally-awesome way) UPDATE: The show was awesome! Totally satisfying.

After a series of unfortunate “incidents” I feel it may once again be time for my t.v. to go bye-bye for a while. First, some history, a few years ago I went cold turkey for an entire year without the benefit/distraction of television. Then, my brother gave me a t.v. for Christmas, I made it […]

My bags are packed. . .

So, as I am preparing to get out of town on an actual vacation for a few days and totally bored and useless at work today I found myself perusing the TSA website for the latest and greatest list of what you can and can’t take on an airplane. While I am deeply saddened and […]
