We celebrated our 9th anniversary at Bryce Canyon National Park. I had never been there before and Greg hadn’t been since he was a kid. Man, pictures do not do it justice. I thought I kind of knew what to expect, but when we got there and actually walked up to the canyon… you’re reduced […]

The Cruel Truth About Rock and Roll This article should be required reading. Ann Powers totally nails it. Loving rock and roll requires engaging with a terrible reality, one that the music itself has not solved and sometimes helped its fans to forget. I think the same could be applied to just about everything and […]

I’ve got a Christmas staycation heading my way shortly. Now I’ve just got to make it through the next two days and then it’s pajama time all the time for a week and a half. I can’t tell you how much this means to me. I bought new pajamas specifically for my staycation bonanza. Me, […]

My house is currently being swarmed, dive-bombed, attacked, and surrounded by moths. I may be forced to stay indoors. Thanks a lot, summer. Thanks a lot.

It’s spring and suddenly I’m battling the kingdom of the spiders for squatters rights in my own home. They’re everywhere. On my pillow, staring at me from the ceiling, scurrying across the living room floor, camping out in the sink. Baby spiders, grown up spiders, hairy spiders, black spiders. Here a spider, there a spider, […]

It was an action packed weekend, kids. Let’s revisit it together through the magic of pictures… My dad helped us chop down this gigantic Statue-of-Liberty-sized, half-dead apricot tree in the back corner of our yard. Now our neighbors don’t have to live in fear of it crushing their homes. Bye-bye, tree. I am one step […]

So let me tell you a little story about the DMV. Right when you get in the door you move into this line, like cattle heading into the slaughter house. When it’s your turn you hand over your paperwork to some lady in a cubicle with a tall counter who barks at you to sit […]

Stay in. Let’s face it, after those long, dark winter months, you may not be ready to come out of hibernation just yet. Why force it? You are an individual. Give yourself the respect you deserve by emerging on your own timetable. Just because that groundhog was wrong, doesn’t mean you have to speed up […]
