Yahoo! It’s St. Patrick’s Day! As a man who has quite a few ancestors from the Emerald Isle, I would like to list some of the reasons it is great to be Irish, especially on St. Patrick’s Day: Leprechauns. Leprechaun movies (like Plan Nine from Outer Space, Yongary Monster From the Deep, and Santa Claus […]

February is over. Yahoo. This past February had been one lousy month for me. I had to spend $800 for car repairs thanks to a busted alternator and another $200 to patch up my driveway. As usual, the weather has been relentlessly awful. About the only time I got out of the house was when […]

Hurray for the Razzies, not the Oscars!

Time for the envelopes–it’s Oscars weekend. Like Clark Gable, I frankly don’t give a damn–at least when it comes to the Oscars. I haven’t watched the Oscars in years because it is duller than a discussion on the intricacies of integral calculus. On Oscars night, I try to watch something more captivating like paternity tests […]

This is a post about miss. Not the Swiss Miss (it tastes good this time of year) or the Miss America pageant (I wrote about that last year) or a swing and a miss (baseball season is still a month and a half away, though spring training games will be starting in a couple of […]

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I have noticed love is in the air. During my anything but swinging bachelor days, Valentine’s Day was my least favorite day of the year. I was very much like Charlie Brown–the poor schmuck who got the candy heart embossed with the words “Forget It, Kid”. After […]

Sometimes, it’s good to be a man, especially on the unofficial National Man Day–i.e., Super Bowl Sunday. But what if you are someone of the masculine gender who doesn’t give a whit about the Super Bowl? Unfortunately, I am suffering from that particular predicament. I really don’t care if the Los Angeles Rams or the […]

I’m taking some time off this week because I am suffering from the dreaded disease called writer’s block. Consequently, I am rerunning a post I wrote a couple of years ago in which I created a quickie free verse poem about why I didn’t want to write. Have you ever had a day in which […]

Since I don’t know what I want to write, I am going to do something I haven’t done in a long time–a Boo/Yahoo post! The government shutdown: Super boo. I just wish it was over. It is a sterling example on why I have such disgust towards the miscreants tramps and thieves MFers politicians in […]

I Was Thinking. . . .

To think or not to think, that is the question. . . . I was thinking I should shovel the first winter snow, but I am too lazy to get out in the cold. I’ll just let Mother Nature shovel my driveway. She can do a better job than I can on my most conscientious […]

Happy New Year! Or as Ebenezer Scrooge would say a month earlier, bah humbug! During the first couple weeks of January, people talk about their New Year resolutions. The only New Year’s resolution I make is that I don’t make any resolutions. I usually break any and all resolutions by sunup on January 2. I […]
