Monsters and Madness and Coffee Machines

  So my coffee maker is a jerk. Hold on......let me come at this from a different angle.  But just so it's on record, my coffee maker is a total jerk.

Will Botox Cure Chickenpox?

So fun can get chickenpox at 45.  I did. I got a vaccine since I've never had chicken pox thinking that I was being smart...proactive....efficient.  I've got a four year old in my house.  He's going to school.  They're little carriers for germs.  Smart right?  Turns out....I'm an idiot.  A week to the day … Continue reading Will Botox Cure Chickenpox?

As Bob Marley Said

The Mall of America has hired a black Santa.  The Minneapolis Star-Tribune had to shut down the comment section of a lovely, upbeat article offering a little insight as to why this man chose to put up with the crying, coughing, pant-wetting, demanding, tired, cranky, runny-nosed, entitled, whining, overly-indulged youth of America.  His father hurt … Continue reading As Bob Marley Said
