Just A Quickie (I was gonna say higher, but ‘uh)

A SLIGHT CASE OF PROGERIA Take the bull by the balls Aging way too fast Summers promised Outnumbered by summers past The horizon is nearer now It provides no comfort Long flat lines never have.

Don’t Push Me ‘Cause I’m Close To The Edge

I’m not a motivational speaker.  I’m certainly no life coach.  I’m not particularly observant or sensitive to the human condition.  I’ve just made my share of bad decisions in my life, and I think I at least have a partial answer to the question, “Why?” It’s all about pace.  We all have an internal clock [...]

Just Another Soupy Public Service

Ten signs that the guy down the block is a child molester: 10. He’s the first one at the school bus stop EVERY morning, and he doesn’t have any kids. 9. He starts every conversation with, “While I was molesting this kid last night…” 8. Everytime you run into him at the park he shows [...]

I discovered a second pregnant man right in my own backyard.  Ironically, the first pregnant man (who is not really a man at all) runs a small tee shirt business with his wife.  Now this second pregnant man (who appears to be, for all intents and purposes, a man) chose to tell his story to [...]

Another Myth Revealed: Cougars

I posed this question to my older female cousin and aunt last night at dinner while they were having a “cutesy” conversation about Cougars (the flirtatious barflies, not the mountain lion): Do you think the term Cougar is a compliment? They both nodded and said that it was, pointing to Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher [...]

Aw Kige, I Feel Your Pain

Once I got past the sheer hilarity of the seriousness with which he imparts his advice, and the absurdity with which he throws, I was left with an empty feeling in my stomach. Kige doesn’t have anybody to throw to. He’s gotta turn off the camera, then go chase after the ball he just threw. [...]

My Top TV Theme Songs

I’m not stupid enough (okay maybe stupid enough, but not so full of myself) to think that people care what my top TV themes are.  I know that Tiger Beat magazine is not looking for more info on “yours truly,” and this post will help them cross yet another question off their list.  I think [...]
