Dating Chronicles: Thanks, but no thanks

      No Comments on Dating Chronicles: Thanks, but no thanks

Anyone who has spent even a few minutes in the dating world knows that people can be less than nice…OK, down right rude.  Most of the time though, you just get radio silence.  It’s sadly rare to get a respectful blow off. Here’s the thing, rejection sucks.  The only thing you can do is treat someone the way you’d want… Read more »

People of the Minneapolis Skyway

      No Comments on People of the Minneapolis Skyway

Over the past two months, I’ve noticed patterns people have while wandering through the Skyway in Minneapolis. First of all, as far as I can tell, Macy’s is the worst place to be between 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM on any given weekday. You basically have to walk through half of the second floor to get from one building to… Read more »

Public shaming in a public restroom

      3 Comments on Public shaming in a public restroom

What the hell is wrong with people? Twice today…TWICE…when I was in the restroom, I heard a woman in the stall next to me talking ON THE PHONE! I’m sure the person on the other end thoroughly enjoyed the sound of her urination and the flush of the toilet thereafter. The sad part? This isn’t the first time I heard… Read more »

It’s not that I have an emotional attachment to most of the crap I own, it’s just that I… Read more »

For those of you unfamiliar, there are two 35 freeways: I-35 E and I-35W. Now, my brain says that these are east and west, respectively. Not much of a problem until you realize… Read more »

It’s a jungle in there…

      No Comments on It’s a jungle in there…

One of the things I like about Minneapolis is the Skyway. Why? Mostly because I don’t like to go outside. Plus, you don’t have to stop for traffic. Granted, today when I was starving to death and searching for food, I felt like a main character in a zombie movie. You know the zombies who move fast like a tidal… Read more »

Man caves…can we just stop?

      4 Comments on Man caves…can we just stop?

You know why I hate this term? The implication is that men are not as in charge of the things in the house as women. It also lends an air of a “clubhouse” where women are not welcome. When, why, and how did this crap start? I know men used to have a den. I have no idea what went… Read more »
