Insomnia is my Kryptonite

August 1, 2018

I challenge you to name three things that are more annoying than having your shorts crawl up between your thighs while you’re walking down the street to go to a coffee shop … and then having to try to arrest the crawl-up by changing your gait. Like you try to have your thigh meat sort…

Pooping Out a Blog Post … Not Quite Literally, but Almost

July 24, 2018

Today was the first full day back from vacation. Do I have to just stop vacation eating? Because I gotta say, I was thoroughly enjoying eating with abandon for an entire week. Like, right now I want pizza for dinner. A lot of it. We had pizza twice on vacation. But now I want it…

Double-Check Me Fellow Liberals: Franken Resigned Too Soon

December 7, 2017

Give me a gut check on this apparently unpopular opinion that I hold. I think Franken’s resignation was premature. It shut down the opportunity to go ahead and have the ethics investigation, which I think would’ve been useful.   These allegations do not rise to the level of the other harassment we’ve been hearing about,…
