I wrote a tweet a couple of years ago about Satanism. I have no idea what the original tweet was at this point, but when I looked at the draft a few hours later, I realized that I completely misspelled it as Santaism. Santaism is the practice of altar-worshiping a fat, jolly, gift-bearing, time traveling man-god. I remember cracking up laughing at my own stupid typing mistake. In my rush to get a thought out, I had inadvertently created a far … Read More »
After 35 years of being on this planet, I have to admit that I’ve never been able to have a healthy, mature relationship with any cat. It’s not that I don’t want to. I like cats, but at the end of the day they really are a bunch of furry, little assholes.
I tried to make peace with them when I was younger. I figured, we don’t have to be friends…but we also don’t have … Read More »
Ever since I was a young child, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with musical instruments. I loved them because the sounds they make are beautiful, and therefore, the people who knew how to play them were beautiful too. I hated them because I was never one of those people.

I guess I do things a little differently than most people. I always check my spam folders because some days there are really awesome comments in there. Yeah, some … Read More »
On our way home from the gym, my wife and I had to stop at the grocery store to pick up some food-oriented stuff for her tasty vegan pizza. We brought our basket-o-dinner up to the front to check out and met our cashier, Jose Alvarez.
Jose was apparently our new friend. I base this assumption on the fact that the first thing he said to us was that his uncle, who was a retired … Read More »
Most good stories involve a girl, alcohol, and/or a series of bad decisions. This one is no different. I’ll call the girl Mauran Langecosi. I met Mauran while working as a life guard at a local pool in the town I grew up in. She was a year younger than me and ridiculously hot, so naturally, I did everything I could to impress her. From throwing myself off the diving board in every which way to doing donuts in the gravel parking … Read More »
