The Judge From Divorce Court Talks Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes Divorce

The Judge From Divorce Court Talks Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes Divorce
I better start by saying that I really couldn’t care less about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes splitting up.  I don’t really care about celebrities.  Their relationship is none of my business.  And having just come out of a locally public relationship, I can’t even imagine how that would be on a global scale. Break... Read more »

The Summer Of No F***s Given - A Soundtrack

The Summer Of No F***s Given - A Soundtrack
Welcome to the Summer of No F***s Given. Tomorrow is my birthday.  I’m turning the grand 28.  Good news: I survived 27, which seems to be the magical number when most people eat it. Ex. Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix.  Sure, they were taking all the drugs in the world, while I was... Read more »

Someone stole all of my Sephora

Someone stole all of my Sephora
I feel like a karmic bank right now… and everyone wants to rob the bank. This past Saturday night, some jerkwad stole my Sephora shopping bag from the bar at GT Fish and Oyster.  Seriously.  Who does that??

10 Ways To Celebrate National PDA Day Alone

10 Ways To Celebrate National PDA Day Alone
Apparently, it’s National PDA Day.  To those of you who never had your science teacher shout this at you and your football player beau (and by “those of you”, I mean “me”), PDA means “public displays of affection.”  And although Mr. Schumacher may have been trying to dissuade you, today it’s meant to be celebrated....

My Favorite Secret Chicago Spots

First stop on Route 66, you've got to fuel up!  Side note: Lou Mitchell's is awesome hangover food.
Chicago has long been a city of excitement and mystery.  Although I spent my first 17 years in Iowa, I consider Chicago to be my adopted home.  I’ve always preached the awesomeness of Chicago festivals (many of which are free), Movies In The Park, the Lincoln Park Zoo, etc etc etc.  There are just so...

Dubuque Won't Make You Puke

Buying a ticket on the Greyhound SUCKED, but the actual ride wasn't that bad.
Here’s the thing about travel: do it.  That doesn’t mean that you need to spend a case full of doubloons on an exotic transcontinental trek.  Just go where they don’t know your name and they don’t know your friends.  Get some perspective.  Embrace adventure.  Explore.  That’s exactly what I set out to do this weekend....

Older Men And Their Facial Hair

Older Men And Their Facial Hair
Photo Credit: Joe Bielawa I discovered this little truth around the age of 23: a single man over the age of 40, who can’t accept that they are aging, is 100% more likely to have a “soul patch.”  The fact that it’s even called a “soul patch,” speaks to how big of a tool you... Read more »

Street Justice, Mom-Style

Last week, was fucking rough.  And for those of you who frequently read this blog, you know I don’t swear…so…as you can guess, shit got really, really real.  It involved a whole lot of drinking, very little eating and pent up anger that made a cab driver who had tried to scam me well up...

Breaking Up, Cheating, and Heartache

Well…I am certainly in a pickle.  For the past few days, I’ve been debating whether I should say something, and if I did, how should I even say it.  Since this was such a public relationship, I feel like I should provide some closure and finality to the other people who were invested in it....
