There’s a Song Title In There Somewhere

Been Away Too Long It seems like just yesterday that I was walking away from my 20-to-39 challenge after getting completely sidetracked from it and overwhelmed by it. I posted an explanation for my failure, but then never really got back to it. And then that was it. No blog activity since April. Always On […]

Tearing off the Band-Aid

I’m supposed to be hip-deep in a blogging challenge. I’m supposed to be filling your idle surfing time with amusing anecdotes like the time I entered a bachelor auction, or the time that I got headbutted in the stomach so hard that half my stomach was black and hard like bone to touch for a […]
