ZOMBIE WOMEN UNITE!!!!!!!!

BREAK THE CHAINS!!! UNLEASH THE FURY OF ZOMBIE WOMEN AS A MIGHTY FORCE FOR REVOLUTION!!!!! Zombie women of the world, I ask you: why are we content to shamble aimlessly along behind our brethren, following them willy-nilly, eating the leftover brains, and cleaning up after they senselessly destroy some village? Would it kill them to…

Hilariousity Break: Buying Phish Tix

So Mr. Z and I went to that Phish show last Friday night. We bought our tix for that show from a ticket liquidator online. Had to call them to confirm and all because it was last minute. They were all set to walk us through the VERY COMPLICATED PROCESS of opening the email, downloading…

Phish @ Camden 6/25/2010: A Brief Review

Phish, you were fabulously jamtastic, and I dearly loved that sweet cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Free Man In Paris”, but I swear there were times when your light show made me feel like I was strapped in a chair next to Karl in Room 23. What can I say? I freely bought my own ticket.…

The Evolution of My Dream Technology

I’ve had versions of the same recurring dream/nightmare for decades. While I don’t particularly enjoy the dream, it is hilarious to me to reflect on how it has evolved over time to keep up with advances in technology in my waking life. The dream always involves the urgent need to use a phone at some…

I recently got the chance to view “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”. This is the best film I have ever seen in my life. It is not an easy film to watch. If you are a survivor of sexual abuse and want to see it, you may want to watch it with a trusted…

Somebody Wants My Balls!

Technically speaking, I believe it’s my ovaries that are the proper object of envy, but no matter. Prof-Like Substance has spoken. I’m going to try something a little different this week and actually do something organized, rather than just toss out anything that happens to be on my mind. I often get comments, here or…
