What I'd Tell My Dad If I Had An Hour
When I saw this picture or meme or whatever you might call this thing-a-ma-bob on Facebook a while back, my mind raced in a million different directions. I considered hanging with a lot of people.

Why Does My Mother Insist Upon Me Looking Like A Lesbian?
My mother DVR’d yesterday’s premiere episode of The View. The good news – where she’s concerned?  She’s willing to give the yapping hens “another chance”. The bad news?  I am not.

Why The Fashion Police Should Never Apologize

Why The Fashion Police Should Never Apologize
Let me preface the opinion that is about to follow with this: I make fun of what I don’t understand. So does The Fashion Police.

Top Nine Reasons Governor Quinn Needs to Concede

Top Nine Reasons Governor Quinn Needs to Concede
  Last night I poured myself a diet coke and munched on a bag of chips waiting to hear the last mind-numbing speech the current governor had to offer. I went to bed disappointed.
