AND JUST LIKE THAT…

You know that scene at the beginning of the first Sex & the City movie when Big surprised Carrie with the penthouse apartment? And when they walked into that gorgeous main room Carrie said, “Hello, I live here!” and then squealed when Big playfully... read more

HAPPY FATHERS DAY

I love this photo of my dad and I, circa 1978. Just look at that wood-paneled wall, the old, clunky television, and my dad’s shaggy hair! Note the Anheuser Busch wall-hanging (clearly, my mom must have lost that fight), the stacks of 8-tracks, and me, smiling... read more

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BRENEN

Today is my little brother Brenen’s birthday. He would have been 34 years old, if my math serves me well. Also, the anniversary of his passing was earlier this month. As you can imagine, May is a rough month for my family. Especially for my parents.... read more

“Come over,” said Mikey. “I think it’s high time we met.” Mikey was right. We had been shooting messages back and forth on Scruff for almost two weeks. It was obvious that we were into each other. So, in the middle of a unseasonably... read more

THIS IS AN IMMATURE BLOG POST

I’m not an angry person. I’m not confrontational. I loathe arguments. I prefer serenity. I enjoy harmony. I strive for peace. But not today. Today, I’m on a warpath. This morning, when a bicyclist spastically swerved into the crosswalk and nearly... read more

It’s time for Episode 16 of my #PantlessPeriscope show! The shows have been rather heavy the last couple of weeks. Hell, last week, I even broke down in tears. So Oprah of me, right? This week, my pal Jacob will be stopping by to help lighten the mood.... read more
