The 6 Hour Cat.

June 2, 2011

When I was kid I wanted a cat.  Badly. I know, I know, I hate cats…now.  But back then, I wanted nothing more than to have a cat just like Alice did, so I could fall down a rabbit hole into Wonderland, and drink tea and wear pretty dresses. See, that’s what happens when you […]

The cure for the down lows.

February 18, 2011

Do you know how to braid? Should I whiten my teeth, like, pretend you are looking at me, and I look like myself, only with whiter teeth, how do I look? Can I paint my toes hot pink in the winter, or is that like white after Labor Day? Andy, seriously, can you tell I’m […]
