Well, There It Is (Probably NSFW; Apparently SFF (Safe for FB)

Or there they are, I should say. So I'm inexplicably a member of my high school graduating class's FB page (I actually enjoyed high school, but still), although I never actually post anything to the group's FB page, which rarely gets updates except for the occasional post about someone's burgeoning (read:… » 4/23/14 6:49pm Today 6:49pm

I would essentially have sleep paralysis, but I couldn't see or hear anything in the room—I could just sense it (when I was a kid, it would manifest itself as sleep paralysis and sensing that the shadows were moving around me in nefarious… » 4/21/14 9:25pm Monday 9:25pm

I've often said that if I can't watch a good game (and it seems like this isn't a good game), I'll take one that features a brawl. Not pushing-and-shoving, and honest-to-God, make George Will have an orgasm just thinking about the bullshit column he can write about it brawl. Like Miami-Florida International a few years … » 4/19/14 9:30pm Saturday 9:30pm

All of my grandmothers (2 biological, 1 step) outlived their husbands by at least a decade, and I always just assumed that the goal was to put as much distance between yourself and your partner so that you could take a deathbed victory lap over how much longer you lived. » 4/19/14 7:36pm Saturday 7:36pm
