Last Saturday night, I found out that a childhood friend who I had not seen or heard from for about 15 years, but recently reconnected with through Facebook, was in a coma due to an extremely aggressive brain tumor. I just found out today that it will be today or tomorrow when they decide to pull her off life support. I believe with everything in me that things happen for a reason. This reason for her short life may never…

I couldn’t wait until after 5 o’clock that day. I remember just how slow the clock was moving at work. Mocking me. I had finally decided which flat screen to get. That particular Wednesday, I had finally made up my mind. All there was left to do was go get it. Flat screen and surround sound system. For a guy, that’s a memorable day. Especially your first one. Thoughts of getting it all home and hooked up and hitting the…

It’s sad to say but this is a true story… It’s a story that everyone can relate to. Not that what I’m about to say has happened to you, but that you can identify with it. This story happened about 3 years ago, but I am always fearfully reminded of its power every few days. It will forever be known as The Time I Almost Lost It. Literally. I had just left work and needed to see about a cheap…

I just read a post from one of my favorite bloggers. It was one of those posts that after reading it, you close your laptop and just sit. You’re not bored or confused but your mind is racing. You sit there and can still read the words in your head. You leave with a different perspective than you had going in. Best part is that this post didn’t want exposure. It was on the site…just because. Sometimes, posts can be…

One thing that annoys me is unnecessary conversation. The person that when it happens to be the first cold day of the year, they are “fake shivering”. “Can you believe this weather? It’s craaazy!” (You’re still in short sleeves, nodding your head.) “I can’t believe you don’t have on layers, it’s freezing!!” “Dude, it’s 70 degrees.” “Yeah, but I’m shaking! I bet winter will be really bad this year….see how I’m shaking?” Or… The guy at dinner that orders the…

I noticed her long before I first spoke to her. That was the easy part. Long beautiful hair. Beautiful smile. And those glasses. Oh those glasses. I always wondered what it would be like to simply say hi to her. To be next to her and smile. I wondered what that would feel like. I knew myself though. I knew what was and was not possible. Talking to her, wasn’t possible. Blame shyness or the fear of rejection. A plethora…

I got home from dinner last night. I had a couple things recording in my DVR. The Heat/Knicks game and The Oscars. The DVR is the greatest invention. Ever. Especially for things like the Oscars or The Biggest Loser. Is it just me or does everyone on that show have to comment 12 times each episode that they don’t want to fall below the yellow line because that means they have a chance of being sent home. Isn’t that the…

A long, long time ago, (I sound so dramatic.  It was just a few months ago.  We have worked out our issues about it.) a fellow blogger friend asked me to do a Q&A post from a few questions she had for me.  I will answer anything* so of course I was up for the challenge. Q.  How sure are you that you haven’t fathered an illegitimate child? A. And we’re off.  Well, unless I get that knock on the…

It’s been 18 days since my last post. I’ve heard people say that if you take an extended absence with posting on your blog, you can lose a ton of readers. I can see that being true. I gained a few followers in 18 days. How awesome is that? In no way do I think I have better things to say than the next writer, but I will say it’s kind of cool to come back to the site and…

Last night, my friend Erin shared something on Facebook that was pretty awesome. Not only for the fact that the story was awesome, but it also gave me a post idea for the weekly prompt at Studio30 Plus. So…double awesome. “I let Maxine stay up to watch The Empire Strikes Back in her room. I just heard her yell, “Holy Cwap! Darf Vadar is Luke’s Fadder!” It’s neat that she’s just learning that. Another Star Wars fan.” Now I totally…
