I am not a romance person. First of all, I’m not good at it, second, I tend to scoff when the subject comes up. Not on purpose, just in a general pah-aren’t-I-such-a-cynical-adult way. Luckily, Husband and I are well-paired in life, because while I’m not much for romance, he doesn’t have a flipping clue what… Continue reading Romance Is For People Not Baffled By It
Way back last August, Husband and I got our second apartment together, and we needed furniture. Like, lots of furniture. Because we literally didn’t own any. “How can this be?” you ask. Pretty easily: we’d sold all of it in Japan a year and a half beforehand. I tell a lie; I did, last August… Continue reading My Coffee Table As a Metaphor For Life
Christmas is less than nine days away. The only presents you have bought are for your dog, and you have no idea what people want. And why is that?
Because you haven’t seen this list, yet. Obviously.

A couple… Continue reading It’s a Maze, This Post, It’s a Maze of… Paper?
It’s Thanksgiving Day, when someone says: “Before we eat, let’s take a moment to go around the table and say what we’re thankful for,” why is it never acceptable to reply, “Can we just mumble stuff with our mouths full of mashed potatoes instead?”
As a writer, I am keenly aware of the words I use, especially when typing things others will read. Not only am I careful of what I say, I watch how I say it, all the better to analyze, and improve. It’s a constant struggle. And that is why, on Sunday morning, I nearly spit… Continue reading Watch Your Words: The Un-sexy Side of Double Entendres
Last Friday, a package arrived in the mail! Actually, two packages. Husband asked me, “Did my thingy come?” I replied, “No, but two copies of Assassins Creed did.” He: “Two?” Me: “Two.” He: “Are you sure?” As I was literally holding them both in my hand at the time, I didn’t dignify that last remark.… Continue reading Comedy and Assassinations: A Winning Video Game Combo
