ABC Locks In The DWTS Tranny Vote

ABC Locks In The DWTS Tranny Vote
So looky-loo…Chaz Bono is headed to the dance floor with his–er–her–er his sights set on the Mirror Ball Trophy. Viewers are crying foul and posing many burning questions:  What is ABC thinking?  How can they showcase “THAT” on a family program? Who will Chaz dance with…a man or a woman?  Can that “lard ass” even dance?  And, most...

Rules For Retail Retards

Rules For Retail Retards
***Disclaimer…  No actual individuals with special needs were intended to be harmed by this headline or post … back when life was simple and long before the politically correct police took over, kids in every neighborhood from the Atlantic to the Pacific referred to people acting like complete asshats as “ree-tards”…or scolded their asshatish behavior by...

Jada and Will Smith: Where There Is Smoke There Is An Inferno

Jada and Will Smith: Where There Is Smoke There Is An Inferno
I am still anticipating the aftershocks of yesterday’s rumble.  No, I speak not of the East Coast trembling yesterday afternoon.  Nope, not at all.  I am still feeling the effects of the word out of LaLa Land…the imminent demise of THE Hollywood Power Couple…or do you, much like Oprah, consider them Hollywood Royalty? For a... Read more »

Count Your Blessings...Not Your Problems

Count Your Blessings...Not Your Problems
“Count your blessings~Not your problems”.  I recently saw this quote on a billboard outside–of all places–an old folks home.  Perhaps it takes someone until their golden years to figure out this simple message. A few years ago my dad had an “aha moment” with this very message.  He had recently come from a chemo treatment.... Read more »

If Counting The Minutes Until School Starts Is Wrong...I Don't Want To Be Right

If Counting The Minutes Until School Starts Is Wrong...I Don't Want To Be Right
I am anticipating a slumber as restless as the ones I remember as a kid on Christmas Eve…when I looked forward to the gifts of the next day. Back to School Eve has a similar effect on me~and tomorrow’s gift promises to be priceless.  Something that has been on my wish list since school let... Read more »

Taking My Show On The Road

Taking My Show On The Road
Yesterday I was a “guest writer” for The Chicago 3six5 project. In a nutshell, local authors take a turn describing a day within a year in 365 words.  The project reads like a diary of love letters to Chicago. Such a task of reporting about a day in three-hundred and sixty five words is daunting.  Especially if you like to... Read more »

Chicago Bears Offer Refunds for Everything But The Disappointment

Chicago Bears Offer Refunds for Everything But The Disappointment
How many members of Bears’ upper management does it take to determine a field unplayable? Apparently about twenty. And, of course, one Lovie ”that’s a gooood question” Smith. He assessed the damage Friday afternoon while sporting a backpack (what the hell does he carry in that thing??) and a clueless look on his face (sadly, even more oblivious than... Read more »

Overstressed...I Made A "Mutha" Of A Promise

Overstressed...I Made A "Mutha" Of A Promise
  I promised myself this summer would be different, and until Day #75 I had managed to keep my cool. Something about yesterday made me forget about my promise. Perhaps it was the fact it was Day #75 with my mom in town…or possibly this particular Sunday marked my first day off in six days…or maybe... Read more »
