Placebos

I feel confident that if I mention the placebo effect that we all basically understand what I'm talking about, right? Okay, just in case, here's the dictionary definition: a beneficial effect produced by a placebo drug or treatment, which cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and must therefore be due to … Continue reading Placebos

I Need Something Simple Today

I've run out of Quantum Leap episodes. I had gotten ahead, but since I'm still housesitting, I don't have access to the show on the available streaming services on my aunt's TV. So I'll resume that next week. As it is, these last few weeks have been difficult. And I don't have it in me … Continue reading I Need Something Simple Today

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…

I’ll Be There For You

I'm certain we've established that I, from time to time, have some pretty freakin' bizarre dreams. Exhibit A. At times, they can be kind of disturbing. Exhibit B. Recently, I had a dream that was, yes, bizarre. But it was less disturbing than it was incredibly awesome. In this dream, I was married. But I … Continue reading I’ll Be There For You

Has it Really Been 20 Years?

Kids, next weekend is my 20-Year High School Reunion. That's right. I graduated from high school way back in 1998. That's the 20th century, y'all. Am I really old enough to have a 20-year reunion? Sadly, yes. Being 38, I'm the perfect age for a 20-year reunion. Ugh... How did this happen? I'd swear I … Continue reading Has it Really Been 20 Years?

The Single Guy Rants About the Movies

I need to start this post by clearing the air a bit. First of all, I love families. I love kids. And I think that a family with kids should be able to go see movies whenever they want and/or are able to do so. Except when I don't think that... I went to see … Continue reading The Single Guy Rants About the Movies

Question of the Week #142

What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about? More and more each day, it seems. I'm not saying it's wrong to be politically correct. I'm not necessarily saying it's right, either. It's just funny how you can look back at movies or TV shows that were made 20, even 10 years ago and … Continue reading Question of the Week #142

The Cruelest Joke

You know that feeling? The one where you wake up at 3AM and just know that you're about to be in some sort of intestinal distress? Just me? Okay... well, it's not a comfortable feeling. It's the kind of thing where it feels like things inside your gut are doing flips, even though you know … Continue reading The Cruelest Joke
