race: she said what?!

It’s only because of who it is, that I’m not foaming at the mouth, but I still couldn’t let this go by without comment. Socially conservative talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger done gone and put her foot in her mouth on the air… again.

health: psych!*

First things first, the Afterglow happy hour is still on this evening at Againn from 5-7 (or thereabouts). It’s just going to be technically premature now, but still happening. I went in yesterday afternoon, as usual, it was mentioned that...

Health Care Reform seems well on its way to happening, and I’ve got surgery in the morning. Funny how that happened! Not to get too much into it, but after a visit to the plastic surgeon, she’s decided that a...

ads: Oh no…!

Just a quickie to give people a smile leading into the weekend. I’ve been giggling at this commercial ever since it started airing. It’s one of the few ads that I don’t skip past when it comes on: Get the...
