I Learned This While Making My Bed

I have been yelling for years about how making the bed was a complete waste of time. This is something that I believed deeply. I am a busy person and it seemed like a fool’s errand. You get out of bed, make it all nice, then wreck it up again every night? Redundant. Redundant. So I don’t make my bed. ...more
 @njgeiger Not the same. If you don't vaccum, there are a bunch of allergens etc. stuck in your ...more

This Super Bowl is Going to Be Good

I am the first one to admit that I get excited about the Super Bowl every single year. I like everything about the big game. I like football. I like beer. I like football food. I like new funny commercials. I like parties. The Super Bowl has everything. Super Bowl Sunday is my favorite holiday, but this year I am even more excited than normal. No, my team isn't in it, but this year I think we are going to see a really excellent game....more

SO sorry. This comment was supposed to be a reply to the main thread. Obviously I am in the ...more

Baseball Pitcher Gil Meche Turned Down $12 Million

Don't misunderstand me. I am not saying what Meche did was wrong. In fact, I think it is one of the most noble stories I have heard all year. I am just a little surprised. How many Americans would do something like this? I'd love to say I would, but let's not get crazy. I made less than $20,000 last year - I would probably keep $12 that I didn't earn. ...more

That's totally awesome. Glad to hear it.more

January 24: The Least Wonderful Time of the Year

Feeling blue? You are not alone. January 24 is the most depressing day of the year, and not just for Jets fans. A professor at the University of Cardiff in Wales named Dr. Cliff Arnall specializes in seasonal disorders and he says that out of all the depressing days of the year January 24th is the worst. ...more

If I had to be at work (which I did) I was taking you all down with me.

Ridding Yourself of Emotional Vampires

There are good vampires and bad vampires. Edward is good, James is bad. Louis was good, Lestat was bad. Count Chocula and The Count from Sesame Street are good and emotional vampires are bad. You know what I’m talking about - an emotional vampire, the people in your life that suck all of your energy and joy. Dementors, if you will. ...more

Those are the worst, especially if you love the vampire.

Sports Illustrated 3D Video of Swimsuit Issue Is Only Good For One Thing

The other day I was listening to the news on the radio and the reporter began talking about the new 3D video of the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. As a woman, I've always found the swimsuit issue a little off-putting. I mean, I understand that it is a big seller. I get that the designers of this "swimwear" probably pay huge money to be featured. But let's be honest, none of these bathing suits are fit to race in. Hell, I'm not even sure you can get them all wet. ...more
I would disagree the 'whole' point of a 3D version is merely for male visual stimulation.  (As a ...more

Why Don't You Leave This One to the Boys, Sweetcakes?

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the press box.I've been watching sports for a long time. I've probably watched over 100 bowl games in my days so far, and this year I was impressed. There were more women reporters, and not just the short skirt, high-heeled, blond-haired eye candy either. Real sports reporters.I don't mean to say that these were not attractive women, but this year they seem to know their sports. I was feeling very empowered until I saw the headline....more

These attitudes still exist even in female-dominant sports like tennis. Didn't women get equal ...more

Don't Drink and Tweet

We've all done it. You go out drinking with your friends, get dropped off by your designated driver and you log on to Twitter, or Facebook, or Plurk (seriously, I went there the other day, there are still people on Plurk. I was amazed too.) or whatever social media outlet you prefer and start drunk broadcasting. ...more

I agree with this, I see a lot of this on the roads these days especially parents with kids in ...more
