I’ve got nothin’ to write at the moment but this tickles me….
Wow…it’s been about 7 months since the last time I wrote anything. Not just on here but creative writing in general. And so very much has occurred over those last 7 months that I don’t even know where to start. I’m vapor-locked by the sheer tonnage of ‘stuff’ that’s happened over the course of my writing break and I can’t […]
Ah, writing, how I’ve missed you. Not having a creative outlet has kind of been draining for me these these last few months and yet I haven’t had any energy to use my creative outlet…it’s like a vicious, literary death spiral. But now, things are hopefully settling in a bit in my work life, which translates to my at-homelife, and […]
So…it’s been over 4 months since I posted on here. Don’t even have the energy to recount all the things that have gone on during that time, so I’m not going to try.

My kids are smart-asses in the best sense of the word: self-assured, smartly cynical, and only […]
Holy shit, people…it’s like the world has gone all topsy turvy and coffee is to blame. Seriously, it’s caused so much irreverent offense that it should be scolded and put in the corner. Go, coffee, go sit in the corner and think about what you’ve done. So, here in America we’ve had the Starbucks HolidayCupGate event going on where people […]
Our oldest just started his senior year and he plans on entering the military right after he graduates, which means we have roughly 9 months before he leaves us for parts unknown. 9 months.
