I’m Going to Have To Give Up The Cat

March 17, 2014

I recently came to terms that I’m going to have to give up my cat Pantaloons. My girlfriend is allergic. She’s a good sport when she visits and takes a Benadryl which clears up her symptoms. But how long am I going to make her pop meds to be comfortable? We’re only six months into […]

Someone Flipped Me The Bird!

March 4, 2014

Had an amazing experience on the subway yesterday. Well, in Chicago we don’t call it the subway. It’s the “el” which is short for “elevated train” because it does, in fact, go above ground. The trains also go below ground, too. I’m sticking with “subway,” although this incident technically happened at an elevated structure. It wasn’t […]

Back from a Real Vacation and a Three Week Writing Vacation

February 26, 2014

It’s been three weeks since I wrote anything. Well, this is not entirely true. I did post a story last week about how it was discovered that my girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend is now seriously dating a woman I used to see ten years prior. You may have to read that twice. There isn’t an easier way […]

100k Twitter Followers and Caffeine Addiction

January 28, 2014

I crossed over 100k Twitter followers today. Yes, it’s a not-so-subtle brag. But, screw it.  I’m taking a victory lap. The victory lap equates to a night of eating pizza until passout. Before the carbs and fat sink my consciousness I’m going to attempt to eek out this post. I’m not proud here, but I’m […]

Introducing FamousFollowers.me

January 25, 2014

Celebrities. They’re just better than the rest of us. Okay, well, maybe that’s not true. But most of us are starstruck, at least a little. I think we all  have someone who, if we met them in person, would render us speechless. If we’re on Twitter the pinnacle of stardom is to become “verified.” That […]

I Am Lucky and Ashamed

January 23, 2014

When I left my home it was -1 degrees. There’s nothing I own that is appropriate for negative temperatures. If I dug deep into my closet I could find a pair of long underwear. But then what? Put them on under my suit pants? I’d get to work where the temperature is a 72. Then […]

Manifest My Desires, Universe! Chop Chop!

January 22, 2014

I’m trying my hand at this manifesting thing. I’ve been into New Agey crap for twenty years. Most of it is BS but I’ve always found spiritual practices entertaining. Back when I was nineteen I was introduced to the idea of chakras. Whether they’re real or not (probably not) I can still feel all seven […]

I Don’t Know How to Soothe Myself

January 21, 2014

What do you do to soothe yourself when you’re having a rough day? I stared at my therapist blankly. By 10am I had been having a “not feeling good” kind of morning. The cold and the sludge and no sun – it was affecting my well-being. I was bummed. Plus, I hadn’t slept enough the […]
