Cocktail: Baby Aspirin of Humbolt

Where you one of those kids who snuck a St. Joseph's every not and then out of the medicine cabinet because you liked the taste?  No? Just me?  I guess my impending musicianship was predetermined, since I was already kinda strung out on baby aspirin.  You're lying anyway.  I know you liked it. I really liked the taste.  That slightly chalky, citrusy thing that went on when you chewed it up.  I didn't mind when my mom told me I needed to take aspirin.  What can I say?  I'm a weirdo.

When I was a kid my mother would practically turn blue calling me down to breakfast.  I was usually either curled up in the fetal position asleep on the bathroom rug, or snoozing on the toilet, my head propped against the toilet paper roll bolted to the wall.

Starf*cked: A Grande Flappucino and a Donut, Hold the Tongue

By now we've all heard the tale of gross injustice. At a donut shop, far, far, away, which will  undoubtedly reap the benefits of this outrageous fortune, a pop star stuck out her tongue and unleashed not only her saliva, but also her disdain for this great country of ours. 'murica. And on Fourth of July weekend, no less. Cries of anti-patriotism, disgust, and disparity over the lack of good sanity judgement were heard from all across this land. Questions were raised. Did the pop star, one Ariana Grande, indeed hate her country? Our country? Was she just a spoiled, immature, entitled [...]

It’s Not Easy Being Green: The All Day Morning Sickness Blues

You know how celebrities and really, really lucky people go around saying things like “I didn’t have a day of morning sickness. I felt great”? That’s just sick, isn’t it? I can tell you that’s never been me. With both of my pregnancies, I was sick all day, every day, from day one up until delivery. No, make that during delivery. Each passing day, week, month, was a veritable throw down, and all I could do was throw up. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I loved being pregnant. Renting out precious bodily real estate to your beloved future progeny, feeling [...]
