Should I Write a Book?

It’s a question I ask myself every now and then. And I’ve been asking myself off and on for many years. I think about it. I get excited about the ideas and the possibilities. I get overwhelmed. I doubt my abilities. I wonder if I could ever even find the required time. I quit before … Continue reading Should I Write a Book?

Chicken Sandwich Taco

It's not often that I will take the time to talk about some flash-in-the-pan fast food item that probably won't be on the menu next month. In fact, I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've decided to do such a thing. But something bothers me about Taco Bell's new Chicken Sandwich Taco. I … Continue reading Chicken Sandwich Taco

And Now…

I’ve been in a Deep Thoughts kind of mood lately. I’m sure there will be a lot of readers out there who have no idea what I’m talking about. I’m referring to Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey. Deep Thoughts were a common segment found on Saturday Night Live back in the 90’s. They’re the kind of thing that you either think are hilarious … Continue reading And Now…

Oracle

I feel the need to give some very careful instructions regarding a classic fortune-telling device known as the Magic 8-Ball. The Magic 8-Ball can be found in a variety of places, usually in the places where toys are sold. Recently, there have been a rash of copycat and novelty 8-Balls, but none can overtake the … Continue reading Oracle

Junk

How does the phenomenon of the junk drawer occur? You know you have one. I know you know what I’m talking about. There are so many items that come into people’s lives that are entirely unnecessary to own, yet they’re so insistent on keeping them. Things like the souvenir shot glasses from the Hard Rock … Continue reading Junk

Happy Thoughts

I watched the movie Hook the other day and something struck me. The grown up Peter Pan had a really hard time flying. Now, if you know the Peter Pan story, you know that all it takes to fly is a little pixie dust and one happy thought. In the classic Disney version of the story, the … Continue reading Happy Thoughts

Five Years

Where do you see yourself in five years? This is the question that is inevitably asked of every college student at one point or another. Some are asked as rising freshmen. Some are asked as exiting graduates. Many are even asked again once they interview for that job they’ve been working so hard to get. … Continue reading Five Years

Movie Trailers and Campaign Ads

What do these things have in common? Probably not that much and I'm sure I'm reading into things and just formulating my opinions based on sheer annoyance. But I'm annoyed. So that annoyance is giving birth to this blog post. Next Tuesday is an election day in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It's not a huge … Continue reading Movie Trailers and Campaign Ads

Pretending to Care

Disclaimer: This post is going to come across as extremely negative. Now, I never claim to be the most positive cynic in the world, but I'm going full dark side here. And while I generally try to keep the language G or PG rated, that may go out the window in this post as well. … Continue reading Pretending to Care

The Rest of April…

Okay... So the other day I decided to participate in the A to Z Challenge. It was definitely a last second decision on my part this year with no planning whatsoever. In my lack of planning, I figured I would go ahead and do the A to Z Challenge on top of my usual blog … Continue reading The Rest of April…
