I was listening to This Week In Blackness Prime yesterday as they discussed/reacted to the despicable shooting in Charleston that happened this week. The phone lines were open and at one point a caller from Georgia spoke about living in the south where "an acceptable amount of racism" is just always in existence. Now, I... Continue Reading →
Raging at the rage (yes, I get the irony)
What do people get out of rage tweeting/status updates? I’ve recently been somewhat befuddled by folks who watch something on TV (say, a particular channel or program) and then spend time posting anger filled tweets directed at said TV show. Now, I know there are “media” watchers whose job it is to blog or comment... Continue Reading →
Warning! This is your brain on Zyrtec!
Well, MY brain anyway .... The ol' barometric pressure took a nose dive last night and right on cue my sinuses filled with pressure. Consequently I've been either excessively foggy headed and tired from the pressure itself or, the Zyrtec I take to relieve it somewhat. Take your pick - either way, I am not at... Continue Reading →
Push Presents and our Madison Avenue driven culture of expectation (re-post)
Listening to a morning radio show on the way to work I heard a completely new term. “Push Present” Now, I know I fall out of the range of your typical female target audience. The things that I watch on TV or the magazines & blogs I read are WAY out of the norm for... Continue Reading →
Dear Mother Nature
So it begins eh? The annual Springtime Weekend Only rainstorms. Charming. You know what this is forcing me to do today? Get in my weekend run today. After work. Or, more specifically, I am going to run home from work (thank god that's mostly downhill this time). So please, keep that rain away until much... Continue Reading →
Dear Daylight Savings Time
What the heck did I ever do to you? How can one little hour have so much impact? Por ejemplo - last Sunday I joined my running buddies for a 90 min trail run at San Elijo Lagoon. We had to get started before 8am because they have follow up the run with a swim... Continue Reading →
What if Tim Tebow wasn’t a Christian?
I can't be the only one who has posed this question, right? But I just need to get this out there as he on the verge of potentially yet another freaky upset against the often equally reviled Tom Brady and the Patriots in the playoffs this weekend. UPDATED: And so readers don't think I am anti-Tebow personally... Continue Reading →
Spare me the mommy wars – please!
Ugh! Again with the Mommy Wars in the media? Ok, I suppose first we should blame whoever conducted this "controversial study". I mean really,what's the damn point? No, I wont look it up to link to it and give it more eyeballs. I find the premise of it insulting enough. Apparently the gist of THIS... Continue Reading →
I suppose if you LIKE being depressed…..
I like to be a contrarian sometimes. Sometimes? Oh hush. The following four things receive HIGH HIGH HIGH Critical Acclaim. Oprah's Book Club! Grammys! Oscars! However, I will advise you that unless you WANT to run into the kitchen and swallow a bottle of anti-depressants with that bottle of vodka and slip away into the night...well....then you'd...

As I alluded to in an earlier post, there have been um..."issues" with the plumbing in the ladies rooms in the basement. I use the term "ladies" quite loosely. Toilets left un-flushed, or not completely flushed, toilet paper rolls almost never replaced (seriously, go in there after 3:30 and you will inevitable see two empty... Continue Reading →
