PREACH! A YEAR FOR GOD

Another year has been and gone and I’ve been contemplating what twenty-fourteen meant to me. I like to recall a past year and it’s pivotal accomplishments or adventures. This past year was a little different: some things melted into the background, other things were completely cast aside. What was left was something I consider most […]

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

Over the weekend, some girlfriends and I stopped in at out local pub for [virgin] drinks and traditional pub-food. The topic of our conversation turned to our youthful follies and childhood pets; two seemingly unrelated, yet proven inter-relatable subjects. We talked about hamsters who’d chewed through electric cables, goldfish who’d suicide-jumped their way to freedom […]

WHY I’LL NEVER WEAR PANTS TO CHURCH

Really. Like NEVER. Currently a group of Mormon feminists are promoting a day of omitting the social norm of wearing a skirt or dress to church. Instead, they propose to women all over the world to wear pants to their Sabbath day meetings this week. Their goal is to draw awareness to what they claim […]

BEING GRATEFUL

Happy Valentines day.  I was feeling quite sad for myself considering the fact the only thing I have gotten today so far is a paper cut. But then Ted slapped me in the face with this beaut from Louie Schwarzberg, one of the most intuitive photographers of our generation.   

HEAR HEAR

This is the most agitating feature of all existence, if you ask me: people who use YOUR incorrectly.  Also, people who can’t figure out the right usage of there/their/they’re.  Most people I associate with are over the age of 10, so this should NEVER HAPPEN.  Just take ten minutes out of your life to get […]

HAPPY CHRISTMAS Y’ALL

(scroll down for link to “What Stormtroopers do on their day off”) I may or may not have thrown up a little, writing “Y’ALL.”  That truly was a freak occurrence, so I do hope you american readers enjoyed it while it lasted.  On to bigger and better items of business… Today is Christmas day, Ebenezer […]

DEAR BRITISH AIRWAYS: I WANT 48 HRS OF MY LIFE BACK

Ok, ok, even writing the title of this post, I acknowledge that British Airways couldn’t necessarily control the traffic halting blizzard that shut down the Heathrow airport.  HOWEVER, I will take a moment to express my dismay at the lack of professionalism displayed by the British Airways representatives at the Chicago airport.  Because of a […]

THE LIBRARY GUY IS EVERYWHERE

Once again I find myself skipping out on the daylight and instead breathing in the dust of old books.  I’m not complaining exactly, as I consider the library- any library- to be a home away from home.  There’s something about the overwhelming inevitability that no matter how hard one tries, one could never defeat the […]

Letter of the Day

Singer Kelis was verbally attacked by the PETA, who also sent her a letter condemning her decision to wear fur. Kelis responded… On wearing fur: “Btw it’s not just the look of fur. It’s warm as hell and feels glorious, ever rubbed faux fur on your body? Nothing luxurious about that. Then the letter proceeded […]
