The Sunshine Blog Award

I like awards.  I know they are really just a way for us to recognize other blogs that we like so we can all network and increase traffic, but that’s okay by me.  I especially like this one because a) I’ve never received it before and b) it recognizes blogs with that special flair for […]

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like………Mental Illness

Whoever said this was the most wonderful time of the year was obviously smoking crack. I mean, God help you if you have to go to the store for some normal, non-Christmas-related item.  You might be there to get milk, but Redneck Rita will cut you if she thinks you’re going to grab one of […]

I have an over-active imagination. I think part of the reason is probably because I’ve been reading Stephen King religiously since I was about thirteen years old.  Surely that type of constant exposure to the macabre does something to your brain.    But if I’m going to be honest, I’ve always sort of had different […]
