That Time I Almost Got Stuck In Mexico

That Time I… is a (kind-of) weekly installment celebrating the unexpected and amusing that can happen when travelling. This cautionary tale comes from the US/Mexico border… I’ll set the scene- my first ever spring break from college. Me and three friends from school. Sunshine in Los Angles, the beach, Disneyland, and a quick stop to... Read more »

That Time I Was Not Cool In Notting Hill

That Time I… is a (hopefully) weekly installment celebrating the unexpected and amusing that can happen when travelling. This tale is a recent one from London… I like to think of myself as a fairly hip person. Not a hipster or trendsetter by any stretch of the imagination,  but someone who is somewhat aware of...

The Mini Abe Super Bowl Commercial: Irresponsible Use of State Money

Before turning off the Super Bowl after the 3rd quarter because I was sleepy and it was getting sad watching Peyton Manning, I did get to catch some of the local advertisements.

Spirit Airlines- A Bunch of Idiots or Marketing Geniuses?

Ahhhh… Spirit Airlines. Just mention the name and you’ll get an immediate reaction from many. A laugh, a ‘gross’ face, or a whole diatribe, as I once did at a friend’s wedding. My boyfriend mentioned to the bride’s father that he had flown Spirit to Florida for the big day. This fine, upstanding gentleman immediately... Read more »

Dear Parents, Please Don't Tell Me I Have No Idea

I’ve seen a video shared on Facebook a few times over the past few days that isn’t sitting right with me. I find most things funny- if you like to tell jokes, I’m your girl. No joke is too simple, complex, filthy, or completely harmless. I love a good chuckle. Even a guffaw. But I... Read more »
