That thing called duh.

      No Comments on That thing called duh.

Common sense isn’t common because it’s part of Darwinism. If survival of the fittest is the case, then common sense can’t be common. Only the strong survive. Unless insurance companies step in to protect the idiots who don’t have enough sense not to suck down some freon from a HVAC unit because they don’t want to pay out on ridiculous… Read more »

Summer tradition: BBQ, barbecue, barbeque

Something I realized this summer, there are two kinds of barbecues. Some portions of the country call them cookouts, but it’s the same type of gathering. The weather warms up and someone invites you over to their house. Usually, they grill up some kind of meat and you bring the booze. This is where things start to diverge. I don’t… Read more »

Why did you move to Minnesota?

      7 Comments on Why did you move to Minnesota?

Pretty much everyone who is from Minnesota asks me that question when they realize I’m not a local, but also from California. While it might seem like an innocuous question, the manner in which it is delivered is always the same…shock and confusion.  It’s as if this state is some sort of sci-fi prison planet to those who have been… Read more »

Trying not to be THAT woman

My boyfriend is out of town for the week and while I find myself really missing him, I’m trying not to be that woman…you know, the one who tells everyone that she can’t sleep at night because her significant other is gone for a day. Roll your eyes…I did. And you know what else? Single people love to hear that… Read more »

Fix the damn road before it crumbles beneath us all.  I see road construction everywhere, except where it’s BADLY needed, Minnesota. Then again, I can only imagine the poor condition of said roads…mostly because they are CLOSED. I swear I need a… Read more »

Is it just me, or is it crazy out there lately?

Yes, I know astrology is pretty much hokum, but I really have no other way to explain the crazy crap that’s been happening lately. First a freaking train crashes in Canada practically blowing up a whole town…OK, maybe just a very large chunk of it, still…awful.  And why did this happen?  It looks like someone forgot to check the breaks. … Read more »

Video games: Mario weeps for you.

I’m worried about the next generation of kids.  I read this article yesterday on Play4Real and it basically says they can’t finish the first level of the original Super Mario Bros. That’s world 1-1…they can’t get to the flag at the end.  My junior high school self scoffs at them. Seriously, what is wrong with these people?  The game couldn’t… Read more »
