How to Ruin Dessert

As I’ve had much time to spend doing whatever as my mouth heals (there ya go, I just lobbed every one of you a batting practice softball. You’re welcome.), I’ve had time to watch a lot of crap. And amongst the smelliest crap has been Sandra Lee. Who or what might that be? This woman

Focus on the Ceiling

I went to the dentist yesterday. Now, it has been awhile since I visited a dentist. This has less to do with any inherent fear of dental clinics and more to do with my generally being an idiot. For years, I’ve worked at jobs that gave me dental benefits, and I never used them. I

Super Bowl 2015 Ads – What the Hell?!

I’m not going to get into too many of them, but there seemed to be a weird theme. Namely : companies that seemingly have no idea what in the Hell they’re promoting, or to whom they’re promoting it. Let’s start with Budweiser. First off, this ad with a dog who runs away from home and

Merry Christmas, Bitchez!

RUN! RUN FROM SANTA! HE CRAVES THE TASTE OF SUPPLE, YOUNG FLESH! I’m enjoying the holidays with family. I’m also probably half drunk while helping children assemble Lego Friends. These are Lego products featuring wee little pieces. Flowers in pots are the third of the size of my thumb and yet somehow feature five or

Oh hai, blog!

Quick fun fact : while this scene was being filmed, nobody noticed the dog sitting on the counter until Tommy did during a take and improvised the ‘hai, doggy’ part on the spot. After, he asked if it was real, suspecting it may be a robot or something. So, hello blog! I know that I’ve

Wow, Regattas are AWESOME

Who knew? Who knew that a regatta is actually a never-ending comedy of errors? Call me crazy, but maybe some of these people should have actually done some rowing beforehand. Or perhaps at least one person per boat should be required to have functioning eyes in order to cut back on collisions. These people trade
