Pull Up Your Goddamn Pants: Shorts Edition

Unfortunately, I was unable to catch this example of droopy drawers at its lowest level, because the young man wearing them pulled them up just as they lost their grip. The stay-uppage of the pants only became precarious when he walked, when they would slip dangerously toward the point of no return. On the other hand, if you look closely you can spot a hint of tighty-whitey wedgie. Location: Van Ness Metro Sag Factor: 6.5... Read more →

The Week That Was

Home again; yes, I'm back from the beach. We had a wonderful, lazy week. The weather was pretty damn fine. We did lots of beachy things -- here are ten of them. 1. We sat on the beach. The water was frigid, but the sun was warm and the breeze was cool and I fell sound asleep listening to the random rhythm of the waves on the sand. 2. We walked on the beach, in... Read more →


Yesterday morning at 5:11 Joe and I pulled out of our parking space. At 7:45 we pulled into the driveway In Ocean City, our home for the next week. I figured that if we going to experience Judgement Day, the Rapture, the Beginning of the End Times, what have you, what better place to face it than my favorite place in the whole entire world? And, if it didn't happen, which seems to be the... Read more →

When Life Hands You Lemons...

Don't make lemonade, make icebox cake. We got the news today that we need a new AC/heating unit, so I promptly realized that only chocolate and whipped cream could alleviate the pain of such news. My mom used to make this when I was a kid. It takes no time and less skill, because even I can make it! I got the idea to do it when I found this version on the wonderful Smitten... Read more →

The Past Week in Ten Bullet Points

Hey there. It's been a long week. Let me sum up in my favorite form, the bulleted list. I went to a dinner for Joe, who made the President's Club at his retail establishment. The management treated all of the honorees (and a few assorted other folks and management sorts) to dinner at Olive Garden. The honorees also got a goody bag with a new name tag, business cards, and a certificate for a day... Read more →

A Collection of Souls

I had to do Mom's final tax return last month, which meant that I had to root around in the records a little bit. I found her wallet in the blue steel records box and went through it to ensure that there wasn't anything else that I needed to take care of. (I suppose it's time to throw it out, but I can't quite do that yet.) At any rate, I found her stash of... Read more →
