Damn you, DST!

      No Comments on Damn you, DST!

It’s that time of year again. You know, when you time travel during the night in order to accommodate someone’s idea that time needs to be saved. I have never liked this change. Even as a kid, I was annoyed by it. So what if I get an extra hour of sleep one Sunday in October (now November), I loose… Read more »

Another hidden food menace…

      3 Comments on Another hidden food menace…

When I move to Minnesota, I hope to lose my iced tea phobia. Here in California, iced tea is not always just plain, black tea in its delicious, natural form the way God intended. OK, man intended. Whatever. Here in California, they fruit up the damn tea…and don’t warn you! Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy an herbal tea every… Read more »

You kids and your video games!

      No Comments on You kids and your video games!

Short of shaking my fist in the air, I am confused by today’s video games. Back in my day, they were simple. Super Mario Brothers was simple.

Honestly, people, you really should make this pill available to women everywhere if they want it. Preventing pregnancy is just a bonus side effect, if you ask me. No longer… Read more »

Online Dating Chronicles: Take a Chance on Me

To this day, I still hate relationship and dating advice. Most of it is bunk. Actually, there is one rule that I wish more people would follow: Be polite. So many people are just rude when it comes to dating. I’m lucky. Paul is one of the most mature people I’ve ever met. He’s a real live grown up and… Read more »

Top 10 Christmas Songs

      1 Comment on Top 10 Christmas Songs

While I am currently filled with the holiday spirit, I do not listen to Christmas music on a non-stop loop.  I only listen to it when doing holiday oriented activities like wrapping gifts or baking cookies.  Sometimes when my family sits down to play cards, we will have it on in the background.  OK, I admit to listing to a… Read more »
