Why So Creepy?

Jeepers, people I turn my back for one day and you all show up looking, apparently, for a picture of the world’s largest tumor. I don’t have one. Never did. I mentioned it on my website once, years ago, but that’s it. And today, for some reason, my referrer logs are full of people who […]

I Could Use Some Florida

I think my biorhythms are low today. – Before I continue, do people even know what biorhythms are any more, or have they fallen out of the feel-good vernacular?

You’d Think It Would Be Easier

I’ve spent the last half hour searching for decent photos of the Ninja Storm power rangers to use as a model for the birthday cake we have to decorate. Specifically we’re looking for the green ranger, because that is Junior’s favorite. He was the green one for Halloween. There are amazingly few photos on the […]

Backfired

I thought I was soooo clever. Ha. One of us is clever and it isn’t me. Junior looked tired. He went to be really late last night, but I figured that was okay because today is Saturday. HA. He came in and woke me up at 6:30, which is early for him, never mind when […]

Looking for that Eric Heenan Entry?

I see a couple of you are looking for my previousEric Heenan entry here. He’s the traffic guy in the morning on WXLO. I’m sure the sudden interest is related to the fact that SUDDENLY the man’s voice is COMPLETELY different, and they are saying it’s because of the equipment he uses to broadcast. I’m […]
