Oh, so you want to know more about the book? The book is called The Money Run. I wrote up a review of it here. The author is P.R. Steele. He’s a Vietnam vet who flew helicopters while he was in the Marines.

The story is about a group of friends in the military who are frustrated with their treatment during the Vietnam War by those in the charge of them. The friends have been sent on the most dangerous missions… on purpose. Little by little, the group of friends was either lost in battle or seriously injured. The hero of the book decides to plot revenge, but not in the way you think.

Did you know the military used to pay out its payroll in cash and that cash was flown around in a single helicopter?

I like to sum it up as Ocean’s Eleven meets the Vietnam War. Don’t get your panties in a bunch. It’s not some heavy tome. It’s a caper. Sure, there are some touching moments in it and well-written scenes that speak to a military man’s experience, but in the end it will make you laugh and cheer.

Did I mention there is also a love story?

Dating Advice: One weird tip

Dating Advice: One weird tipI totally hooked you in with that title. My dating advice isn’t actually weird. It’s pretty simple actually. Maybe that makes it weird.

Dating is frustrating. I know. I did it for 20 years before I got married. I watched friend after friend and relative after relative walk down the aisle. Here’s my dating advice to you: It’s OK.

It’s OK if it doesn’t happen fast. It’s OK if you end up getting dumped. It’s OK if you can’t find someone in the next three months. It’s OK if you only have three dates in the next three years.

It’s OK if you are afraid. It’s OK if you are annoyed. It’s OK if you are tired. It’s OK if you are lonely.

Dating Advice: That’s not how any of this works.

It really pisses me off when I hear people say things like: “If I don’t find a date soon, my mom is going to put a billboard up to find me one.”

As if finding a decent romantic partner is as simple as filling an order at a fast food restaurant?

Maybe that’s why the divorce rate was so high. People used to take whoever they could get in order to fulfill some societal norm. Nowadays, people want a good partner, not just someone to help pass along their DNA. Quality can take time. The pool is much larger!

So what if you haven’t found your one true love yet or even “let’s see how this person pans out after five dates?” This isn’t a fairytale. This is life. Heck, corporate mergers take a long time to come to fruition and those don’t always pan out for the best in the long run either, right? Why should dating be quick and easy? Do you know how many variables go into a date?!? That might be fodder for another post or an entire book.

Just remember this dating advice: It’s OK.

New Year’s Eve Party at Home: 5 Planning Tips

New-Years-Eve-Party-TipsAnother new year is almost here! Aside from making me rhyme, it’s a great time to celebrate. When you’re young, all you want to do is go out for New Year’s Eve and party like every year is 1999. Did anyone ever find this mythical New Year’s Eve party that was going to be awesome? I never did. OK, a couple of my friends and I went to a random cafe in San Francisco’s North Beach and had a great time. Other than that, going out to a large gathering has always been more trouble (and money) than it’s worth.

The best way to celebrate the New Year is at home, whether it’s yours or a friend’s. Continue reading

Coffee roast levels: Which one is best?

Non-Chron-Coffee-RoastBack when I started drinking coffee as a kid, I didn’t know that there were different coffee roast levels. Calm down. I only drank it on the weekends. Actually, I didn’t know about roasts until I was well into adulthood. I just thought some places had good coffee and some places had crap. It never dawned on my that beans could be roasted to different levels. Continue reading
