When Andy came back from Korea, he had 80,000 won  in his pocket. Which sounds like a lot, but it really it's only, like $70. Wouldn't it be awesome if Disney World money was like Korea money? I don't know what it is. You go there with every rational thought and plan in the world. [...]

Curse you fear of flight. I don't know why, in my head, I envision road trips going better than they actually do. I mean, I know my kids are technophiles and they wouldn't how to sing in a round if it punched them in the face, but really with the constant need for stimulation, already? The [...]

I don’t remember the part of our vows where I was the one nominated to be in charge of keeping everyone alive.

OMG I am home. At last. And now, I can relax and go back to posting on a not at all consistent basis! YAY! So anyways, yes.  I went to Boston and New York.  By way of airplane. And I lived to talk about it. BARELY. It was totally touch and go for a while, [...]

Jesus doesn’t frown on a lot of things, but I am pretty sure he hates airplanes. And the new Melrose Place. That show is horrible.

Next week I leave.  On an airplane. This?  Is where I convulse, shake uncontrollably, and then vomit on my keyboard. I just don't think it's natural for things to be floating in the air. Back in the 80's, when the news was all, we're all gonna have flying cars by the year 2000, I was [...]
