Avoid the Noid

I'm not sure if I've mentioned here that I'm a pretty big fan of┬áThe Goldbergs. It's not gonna go down in history as my favorite sitcom in history, but at this moment in time, it gets me right in the feels. Did I use that phrase right? Is that what the kids are still saying? … Continue reading Avoid the Noid

Getting By

Here's the thing... I'm not writing this post as a pity party. I'm not looking for sympathy. I'm not looking for a hand out. I've just got a lot on my mind and I do better when I process things while writing. The fact that people reading this blog get to share in my jumbled … Continue reading Getting By

The Fiona Fiasco, Part III

Well... it has been an eventful afternoon. Wait... what's the last thing you heard about my car? That was last Friday, right?

I kind of expected to hear something from my contact/service guy at the dealership on Wednesday. But I didn't. Not a … Continue reading The Fiona Fiasco, Part II

Like a (Poorly Tailored, Really Tiny) Glove

It's not often that I find myself in a situation where I need to get dressed up these days. I work in an elementary school where, at worst, the dress code is business casual. I attend a church that is very "come as you are." If I were to show up in a suit, I'd … Continue reading Like a (Poorly Tailored, Really Tiny) Glove

The Fiona Fiasco

Yeah, yeah, yeah... "Aaron, where have you been? I can't believe it's really you. Come in. Have a seat. You want some tea? I know the apartment's small, I don't need much space. Let me show you some of my paintings, I think it's some of my best work ever..." Just stop it! I haven't … Continue reading The Fiona Fiasco
