When my sister in law throws kids’ parties, she aims for the fence.
Me: “Oh! The opening ceremonies! How are they so far?” Dad: “Creepy.” — Bob Costas and Matt Lauer: *inane chatter during the parade of countries* Dad: “Ugh. Listen to these two morons.” Me: “I know. They’re awful.” Dad: “The worst part is that they’ve rehearsed this. They sat down, practiced saying all this crap, and … Continue reading
Looks like I have tendonitis in my left knee (and a little bit in my right), brought on by repetitive stress at work (did you know children are small and require you to constantly bend down?) and my own stubborn “walk-it-off” approach to the pain.

Once upon a time, I had a dude friend. A very good dude friend, one I’m still friends with, who I actually lived with for a while in a platonic roommate situation. If I ever write a sitcom, it’s going to be based on our adventures, because they were many and hilarious. This dude, … Continue reading
