Some people wake up in the middle of the night panting, pinned to their beds in fear of the monster underneath. Others wake up cold and annoyed, their half of the blanket tugged away from them. And then there’s me, awake at 4 am after a particularly vivid dream involving crispy hash browns squirting forth … Continue reading The Breakfast Club
JEN AND JUSTIN SECRETLY MARRIED! KHLOE AND KOURTNEY DOUBLE WEDDING! CHRIS HEMSWORTH SEXIEST MAN ALIVE!
Pardon the all caps but I’ve a confession to make. I love reading tabloids; the trashier the better. Yes, I know there’s more truth in a McDonald’s advertisement than what’s reported between those covers, but I can’t help it.

I lifted the noodles … Continue reading Beefy Business

I sometimes look at an artwork, smack myself in the head and think, “I could have done that! If only I had thought of it first.” Case in point: Bug’s Traces by artist … Continue reading The Great Acceleration
