The Sneakiest Black Friday

24th November 2011 by admin No Comments

I’m thinking of doing a Black Friday thing tonight. I don’t really have anything to buy, though. Just to confuse people, I think I’m going to do it somewhere that’s not having a special sale, or is really even somewhere that people shop for the holidays. Imagine their confusion when they come in to open […]

Christmas Time Is Not Yet Here

Hearing Christmas music makes me smile. Hearing Christmas music while fighting my way through Walmart makes me want to kill myself. Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum. — Reid Kerr thinks “The Little Drummer Boy” is a horrible inspiration  for giftgiving.  Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook share via Reddit Share with Stumblers Tweet about it Subscribe […]

He sat across from her as they sipped coffee in the cafe, and swore she was all he’d ever wanted and ever could want. She smiled, a sweet little silly smile of silent encouragement, and he continued.

Can’t Hold A Candle, And I Refuse To

11th November 2011 by admin No Comments

While shopping in Target, I spotted a candle on the Clearance Aisle. I didn’t recognize the scent, but really, when do you?

The ocean smells like dead fish and pirates, and not the […]

Springsteen’s Statutory Anthem “I’m On Fire”

7th November 2011 by admin No Comments

I wrote about Prince’s “Little Red Corvette” a while back as a fine example of something from your youth that you used to enjoy, but now if you actually listen to it, it raises some questions. I listened to that song for almost thirty years, and only recently realized that a girl who carries used condoms […]

The Name Of The Gamey

Nobody gets named “Ethel” anymore, do they? If someone refers to “Ethel,” it’s a safe bet they’re referring to someone who remembers that World War I used to be called The Great War.
