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 »

Sex Education: You need lube

      No Comments on Sex Education: You need lube

Let’s be serious for a moment. There are things about sex that no one really tells you. Likely, it’s because of all the taboos around it. But, we’re all grown ups here and I’d like to pass along some of my experience and knowledge. I don’t care what your age is, I highly recommend you incorporate a lubricant into your… Read more »

Take me out…to the ballgame

      No Comments on Take me out…to the ballgame

A week and a half ago, I went to my first Twins Game.  I love baseball.  Going to a game is also a pretty great date.  Why?  It’s a great combination of factors.

I’m not a huge coupon-er.  I want to be, but I’m just not that organized.  A few years ago, however, a friend of mine mentioned how he was getting freebies on his birthday.  Since his birthday is two days before mine, I got excited and did a little research.  Thank you, Google. I found a few sites that link to… Read more »

It’s National Martini Day, of course.

Some of you just went, “Isn’t every day National Martini Day?” and that’s why we get along. Who wouldn’t want to celebrate what’s essentially a garnished fancy glass of vodka? Well, martinis are more than just a glass of vodka.  They have been for years.  I mean the Cosmopolitan is type of a martini made famous by Sex and the… Read more »

I can’t cook: Brownies

      No Comments on I can’t cook: Brownies

Part of me doesn’t want to share this brownie recipe, but I have a feeling that these chunks of heaven are so good, they could probably help achieve world peace.  That’s right… world… peace. The secret? It uses chocolate chips. Many, many years ago, I found this recipe in the San Francisco Chronicle.  I have tried to find it on… Read more »

A Californian Wine Tastes in Minnesota

Last weekend, Paul took me to some wineries in Minnesota for my birthday. Yes, friends, there are wineries in Minnesota.  I have heard locals speak of such places with condescension in their voices.  Personally, I am open to wineries anywhere in the United States or the countries in Europe I would visit.  I try not to be a wine snob. … Read more »
