Trailer for Doctor Who Series 9…

… What pope? What birthday? What world crashing around our heads? Hush, now. None of that matters. Not when the trailer for the next Doctor Who series has been released. Look. at. it. It’s glorious. September 19th is my new Christmas.

Approach with caution…

The Boy: To the bathroom. Me: With a plate of bacon? The Boy: Yes. You told me to take a shower. Me: With a plate of bacon? The Boy: Yeah, I wanted to eat bacon in the shower. Me: But…. I…. I actually have no argument against this. Carry... Read more

Sex, Race, and Marriage…

… I am sick of race. I am sick of marriage. I am sick to death of the perpetually offended. When did we as a culture become so incapable of coping? Race. There isn’t a week that goes by where someone doesn’t call me a racist. Why? Because I actually did or said something racist? No. Simply because the person claiming racial discrimination didn’t get their way. I mean that’s what it has to be right, since everyone is entitled... Read more
