I Just Can’t Get Enough

It’s rare that I can’t get a song out of my head*, but I was watching LoGo on Monday night and they played this song on “New! Now! Next!” that I just can’t get out of my head. It doesn’t come out until next week – and that’s only in Europe. And it’s going to […]

Objects in This Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear

Or, objects in this blog posting are closer to reality than I’d wish for them to appear. Yesterday, while I was uploading my happy weekend photos onto¬†this blog, I stumbled upon this photo: It’s a picture¬†of my niece a week before she died. Not unexpectedly, my mood went from care-free to sad, then to angry […]

It’s All Just a Big Blur

I’m so glad for cameras because without photographic evidence I’d have very little recollection of this past weekend. It was simply one big blur of culinary excess. Randy’s friend, Jen, arrived from NY (techincally Jersey City – but I won’t hold that against her) so we picked her up from the airport, brought her back […]

Notes from a Scandal

My goodness…just as I expected, that little teaser of childhood trivia yesterday sparked a lot of interest. Unfortunately, I can’t go into much detail on here since my friend reads this blog occasionally. But let’s just say that whenever the father and I were left in a room together (or in a car, or anywhere […]

At a Loss

Well there’s something new. I’m at a loss for words. For the past two days I’ve not had a single thing to write about. This is highly unusual since I normally have no trouble rambling about stupid things. Yet now I can’t even think of a current event, stupid statistic, or funny story to share. […]

Before I Get Judgemental…

…Could somebody please explain to me the details of that man up in New Hampshire who is refusing to pay over $700,000 in income taxes to the federal government? From the glimpses of news reports that I’ve seen (while distracted by internet and other shiny objects) all I can ascertain is that he was a […]

The Next Itzhak Perlman?

I headed down to the Cape this weekend for some family bonding. We mostly ate food and played cards – notice a pattern here? My Mom won the first two games and I won the last two games. My father didn’t win a single time. Not only that, he managed to come in last place […]

The Rudy Giuliani of Bloggers

HMMMM. Chris commented on my blog yesterday that I’m “moderately conservative.” My initial reaction was “there’s no way in hell that I am!” But maybe I am? I never thought of myself as such…especially considering our former asshole – I mean governor – Mitt Romney claimed to be a moderate conservative when he ran for […]

A Monkey? Oh, No He Didn’t!

I admit, I’ve been watching American Idol. I don’t tend to watch the whole series – but I particularly enjoy the first few episodes when they showcase the less talented in our country…and then again the final episodes when the tensions builds. However, I think they set a new low this evening (focusing on Seattle). […]

Visitation Rights

I visited my sister-in-law at the hospital last night. She seemed to be doing pretty well, actually. Well, at least her energy level was higher than it has been over the past few days. Unfortunately (or fortunately), they’e decided to operate on her today – despite not being 100% sure that the central line (tube) […]
