Car shopping and other nightmares

      2 Comments on Car shopping and other nightmares

Minnesota, you are forcing my hand. What the heck is up with your roads?  I thought the roads in Sacramento were bad.  Uh, no. They are fancy and fine. I’ve heard a saying that Midwesterners have…”There’s two seasons here. Winter and road construction.” Really?  Have you seen your roads Minnesota? Holy crap. Look at this road….LOOK AT IT!

Minnesota: The land of never ending winter?

      2 Comments on Minnesota: The land of never ending winter?

Yesterday, I had a mental breakdown. The drive home was so frightening that the moment I saw Paul, I burst into tears.  I was so happy to be alive and needed to relieve the pent up stress from white knuckle driving through downtown Minneapolis.

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 »

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 »
