I’m grateful for my country. I’m grateful to live in a place where I can vote, say whatever I like, read, write, be opinionated, associate with whomever I like, live where I please, and dress how I like. I’m grateful for barbecue. I’m grateful that I got to watch fireworks go off while sitting with […]

Hooray! Sort of.

Ripley doesn’t have cancer. Hooray! It was just a hematoma and after the lab work came back she is all clear and was given orders not to rip around the house running into things. We’ll see if she listens. Flights to London are sorted . . . but we’re not leaving till Christmas Day. Oh, […]

Putting together a good St. Patrick’s Day playlist

Ireland’s greatest cultural contribution has been its music. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that races of people who suffered loss of control over their native soil, imperialism, racism, and hostile treatment in foreign lands end up producing the world’s most beautiful music. Jews, African Americans, and the Irish always spring to mind as people […]

Pumpkin Pr0n Pie

I have only two things to say. (1) Holy smokes and (2) Nom nom nom. Try a regular flaky pie crust with this pie and brush a thin layer of white chocolate over the crust before putting in the filling. It keeps the crust from getting soggy and tastes like unicorns and rainbows. 1 (9 […]

Happy Zombie Day?

I spent considerable time yesterday observing a portion of the local human population celebrating what appeared to be a major holiday on their religious calendar. It was a day celebrating the rise of a legendary zombie known as Yeshua ben Yosef, from the historical data banks I’ve tapped. This guy, if he does what the […]

Happy Valentine's Day, Archer and Juggs!

You two sent me the nicest Valentine I ever got. Hands down. I haven’t always been a big fan of Valentine’s Day, because the like, two times anybody has tried to do something thoughtful for me, I end up inadvertently doing something to screw it up. Like calling the cops on a guy just trying […]
