I think I made a friend.

I grew up in a small town–let us not discuss the name of the place here–and had pretty much the same friends all my life. When I went to college, I worked a lot (A LOT) and took a bunch of classes, so I never had time to make new friends. For the whole first […]

The Day We Found Cereal

Just so you know, I have an endless supply of food-related stories. I could go on for days about the hunting and gathering we do here. And here’s another one… When we moved here, we knew we would not be able to eat the same way we do at home. I mean, we live in […]

It would look something like this: Cop stands on the corner with several other cop friends. They huddle around and discuss major issues, like what they did last night, […]

We’ve Got the Golden Ticket!

You know that part in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where poor, poor Charlie opens his Wonka Bar to discover a shiny golden ticket and he goes leaping and singing through the streets? He sings something like: I’ve got the golden ticket, I’ve got the golden ticket, blah blah blah Well, that was us on […]

Lions and Tigers and Diplomats, Oh My!

That about sums up my past week. Well, except for the lions and tigers bit. The only lions and tigers I deal with are the shows on Animal Planet that seem to be on a continuous loop, as they repeat every two hours. But the diplomat, well, yes, I did encounter one of those. It […]
