Sometimes I wonder why I haven’t written that book I sometimes talk about. Sometimes I wonder how come I don’t have time to practice juggling or learn how to speak French or find a few minutes to deep condition my hair. Then I realize, I spend my free time doing stuff like this:
That’s right. It’s a flow chart based on “The Hills”. That I created for a friend who acts like he doesn’t want to watch it but who I know SECRETLY DOES. I’m not going to lie, I hate myself a little for knowing so much …READ MORE
It’s Monday. Which means, The Secret Project Day but there’s something today that I wanted to write about instead (which gives you another week to get in secrets!). Today, May 4th- is the lovely Brookem’s birthday.
It’s hard when you try and describe how you are friends with someone you’ve never met. Or what makes you friends with someone in the first place. But for reasons I will never understand, (but will be forever thankful for) Miss Brookem and I have hit it off.
Through two years of conversations, we’ve covered every conversation under the sun. We squealed over boys …READ MORE

You know, I’m not oblivious. I feel it too. This little blog of mine has been rocking the title LAME for a while now. I have to search my archives with a miners hat to find a post that I’ve written that I’ve actually felt proud to have published. But, it is what it is and I refuse to feel bad about this little writers slump that is slowly choking the life out of me.
I’m kidding. Kind of.
The thing is, life is happening. Just nothing that warrants full explanations, detailed elaborations or 500 words. Here are the top …READ MORE
I know. That title is such a hook. You are dying to read this aren’t you? The word ‘meme’ always gets the people flocking.
Let me tell you a little story. There’s that “letter” meme going around (that isn’t the story, stay with me, I promise this tale gets SCINTILLATING), Beth gave Matt the letter “D”. Then, I complained to Matt that I had nothing interesting to blog about (yes, these are the things I say in gchat conversations, doesn’t it make you want to find me so we can talk RIGHT NOW?), so Matt gave ME his letter. Because …READ MORE
Things that really pissed me off in 2008 by Mr. 5280 5. George Bush. The absolute best thing he did all year was dodge two shoes that were thrown at him during a press conference. He showed cat-like reflexes to dodge the shoe thrower and this single act alone probably saved him from the number one spot.
4. Adam Sandler, “Don’t Mess With the Zohan”. I sent Adam an email after this movie, begging him to STOP IT. His brilliance in “Waterboy”,”Happy Gilmore” and “Billy Madison,” is going to be overshadowed by these mediocre cinematic flops. He used to bring …READ MORE
Ten Six Things That ROCKED this Holiday Season
1. Quality family time. Even though we play the most competitive board games ever (Risk anyone?) and I got completely schooled, it was still fun. You know, once I was back on speaking terms with my mom. Sure, she may have brought me into the world, but was it completely necessary to dismantle my entire strategy to take over North America in ONE TURN? NO. The answer is NO IT WAS NOT.
2. Time with friends. The friends who are still friends with you despite *2003. The friends who know what …READ MORE
So, many of you know Lisa who is a) a gem b) the founder of 20SB. You know she’s a big deal because she’s first name only- Lisa. She’s the new Dooce. Trust. Anyway, Lisa let me in on this fun idea called Blog Carnival where you get a topic and write on it and then they get shared. And this months topic involved Presents! And a list! Two of my favourite things (Also? The day that there’s a topic that involves presents, lists AND Josh Lyman, I may pee my pants with excitement. Internet, you have been warned), so …READ MORE
In the last few weeks I’ve had multiple conversations with people all of whom are in ‘friends with benefits’ situations. Which? Always intrigues me, the way Alaskan cruises or tightrope walking intrigues me- I think they appear fun but I don’t think they are for me.
There’s a gene I think I lack. The “I’m cool with exchanging bodily fluids without caring enough to date you” gene. Don’t get me wrong- I’ve done the walk of shame, I’ve made very many bad choices and have enjoyed every single one. But repeatedly going back to the same person, liking them enough …READ MORE
