My Inner Trekkie is Showing

Star Trek: Into Darkness officially releases this Friday, but I have tickets to my local theater for tomorrow. I haven’t been this excited for a movie release since I don’t know when.

Simulated Child Birth for Men

This video, “Men Experience ‘Simulated Child Birth,” is too funny.

At two weeks old I was welcomed by two eager parents and an older sister excited to finally have a sibling. Over the years my mom […]

Monday Sucks… Wait, It’s Tuesday? What Happened to Monday?

I know I’ve been quiet, but I have two very good reasons. First and foremost, I got sick. Whatever bug is going around, I caught it yesterday afternoon, making me wish Monday hadn’t happened. (I never thought I’d want a Monday do over, but if I could go back and avoid getting sick, I’m all […]
