A Walk Down Memory Lane; or, 5 Kids Fight Off An Alien Invasion

It all started in a Scholastic book fair, like most things did in the 90’s. That book fair was pretty much the greatest thing in the history of the universe. Do they still do them? They do. Apparently they are a nightmare for the people at the school running it but it’s Christmas come early

I Owe That Raccoon A Lot of Money

If you would have told me at the beginning of 2020 that I would be spending an inordinate amount of time catching fish in order to sell them in an effort to pay back a massive home load to a raccoon—I would have wondered what the hell you were on and if you were willing

A Beginners Guide to Not Being an A-Hole at a Restaurant: Pandemic Edition

Alright people- this is happening. Frankly, it’s been a long time coming. I’ve been working in restaurants for over four years now and, for the most part, I’ve kept my server rage to myself. A lot of times I’ll think about writing something in the moment and then I don’t end up doing it because

The World Cancelled My Cruise and I Lost My Damn Mind

It shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone but… my cruise got cancelled. I was really holding out hope that we’d be sailing in May but when the CDC extended their “no sail” guidelines another 100 days it was pretty much a given that I wouldn’t be sipping colorful drinks on a ship deck anytime

Because the World Just Isn’t Weird Enough

I’ve been blogging for five years now and it’s certainly been an interesting ride. My first entry was posted in March 2015 and there’s been some irregularity in it all but I’ve always done my best to post as much as possible. It’s been a struggle as of late more out of lack of motivation

I’m Just A Drug Dealer For Cats Now

All over the internet you hear people talking about how much their dogs are loving having them home all day every day. I’m of the VERY strong belief that cats could not only care less, but they are quite pissed about it. I’m pretty sure mine are sick of me at this point. Between the

Yes, I Have A Tattoo. No, You Can’t Touch Me.

It happens more often than you would think and it’s equally disturbing each time. A complete stranger running their hand along my arm. It just happened last week. Social distancing was just in the infancy of becoming a buzzword and we’d certainly had been instructed to avoid physical contact with others but that sure as
