I am the not-so-proud owner of a Shake Weight

I love working at the SSA.  Jesse Galef, our Communications Director, got me a cane for my birthday.  Today I received a belated gift from our Resource Coordinator, ‘Imperator’ Nick Stancato. I feel buff already.  Sadly, the web site for the Shake Weight is very…what’s the word…fey? Shake Weight® Utilizes New Workout Technology Called Dynamic [Read More...]

What a trip!

I recall a family camping trip in my youth when the mother of all thunderstorms hammered our camping area for three straight days, raising up the river significantly and washing some of our possessions away before dad and I went out into the downpour to pull our remaining gear/canoes sixty feet up the shore.  Because [Read More...]

Off to the wilderness!

I am in Covington, Kentucky right now.  Tomorrow I will set off with and old friend, Cambridge, and her husband to the Red River Gorge.  We plan to  hike, swim, and climb shit all day and then sleep out under the stars.  It will be glorious.  Maybe, for irony’s sake, I’ll take a jog out [Read More...]

Time marches on

I’m thirty.  It’s a birthday with a zero in it.  I’ve come a long way from here: But it’s not so bad, right?  I mean, not time for my mandatory colonoscopy quite yet.  I’ll just wake up and check my facebook like a young person… Ok, that’s just a coincidence.  No big deal. I get [Read More...]

(Click the image to hugify it) The eyeball you see peering out of the [Read More...]

Well, fuck this morning

I’m in the airport waiting to board a plane to the lovely land of Nebraska for the Midwest Humanist and Freethought Conference.  God is trying to stop me. I had to go by an ATM this morning.  It was one of those ATMs that eats your card and then beeps at you to take it [Read More...]

Can we be friends (or at least acquaintances at a conference)?

I was whining to my friend Ashley the other day about something that’s been on my mind and she told me to blog about it (which I somehow forgot is generally what I do when something’s on my mind).  It seemed like a good enough idea, so here we go: If you are at the [Read More...]

This will increase sales

I saw this on the way to work this morning. Sadly, it’s a trap.  I went in and bought two gift cards and they tried to give me chili instead. [Read more...]
