The best drink ever made

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

When they opened the new McDonald’s McCafe in Elizabeth City, I instantly fell in love with their iced mocha.  My biggest problem is that the McCafe is 15 miles away from home (the current home, that is, not the future home) and they cost about $4.00.  So, I did what I always do…I searched for […]

Change: Why the cancellation of Guiding Light is just a symptom

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

I’ve always hated change.  When I was a kid, I would refuse to eat anything but chicken sandwiches and chocolate milk for lunch.  Cinnamon toast and hot cocoa was my breakfast, when I ate it.  Hot roast beef sandwiches for dinner.  I didn’t need any more than that, my best friend, and my bike.  Life […]

What happens when you’re addicted to being addicted

Friday, February 13th, 2009

I have an addictive personality.  Nothing harmful, mind you, unless you count cigarettes.  I have a life-long addiction to those.  But I get addicted to other things very easily.  Chocolate.  Coffee.  The usual.  I got addicted to crochet when my mom showed me how to make my own poncho 35 years ago.  Thanks to her, […]

It’s all over but the cryin’

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

Well, the election is finally almost over.  Thank God.  I’m sick of hearing about all of it, particularly the local races.  I’m also really sick of hearing about how our elected officials are scum, they all need to be replaced.  Then the voters turn right around and re-elect the scum they were just complaining about. […]

When Money Fails

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

This year has seen some of the greatest financial failures since money was invented.  A lot of people are standing by, wondering how in the hell this all happened.  The rest are ducking and covering, hoping to avoid moral and legal prosecution. Not to blow my own horn, but I predicted this whole mess way […]

The return of Crack Man

Monday, August 18th, 2008

Crack Man came back today.  He was sporting a brand new toilet and even more butt crack than he had before.  He seems to be particularly proud of it.  At one point, I walked into the kitchen (adjacent to the offending bathroom).  Crack Man was putting the new wax seal onto the pipe and the […]

Charlie and the Shrink Ray Factory

Friday, August 1st, 2008

Why are they shrinking our food? Have you noticed? Pizzas are now 2 inches less in diameter than they were 10 years ago. How do I know? I have a pizza pan from 1965. Frozen pizzas used to come right up to the edge on it. Now, there’s a good 1 inch to spare all […]

Things I’ll never get around to

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

There are about a hundred things I’d like to do that I know I’ll never get around to.  I’d like to write a cookbook.  I have some great recipes passed down from my mom and grandmother.  And I have a few things of my own that I think would be awesome.  But even if my […]

My new distraction — SPORE!

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

Okay, so summer is here.  The kids are home.  No school, no schedule.  Things slow down a little.  Except for the fact that I have to spend countless hours cleaning the pool now.  And with the kids home, we can work on some delayed projects like redoing Billy’s room (he’s a slob and his laundry […]
