I mentioned in my previous blog how I possess esteemed membership in the elite organization known as “the guys”. Over the years, this membership has granted me access to any and all testosterone-exclusive events….with one exception. Even though I was affectionately dubbed as the “cool dude with long hair”, there was one ritual of male

Just One of The Guys

Thursday, 18 February 2010 by

So I met the perfect woman last night. Seriously. If I were endowed with male parts, I probably would’ve asked her out! She was about 5’6″ with beautiful blonde hair. She was friendly and sweet and you could tell right away that she wasn’t one of those stuck on herself sorority girls. I asked her

Well, I must apologize for my prolonged absence from this blog. I know it’s been a difficult month for you, not having access to my well-researched opinions on current affairs. But alas, I am back! So you may all breathe a long-anticipated sigh of relief….Emily’s inarguable arguments have returned. The reason for my extended absence

Stressing for Christmas

Saturday, 05 December 2009 by

Now don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love Christmas. I truly believe it is the most wonderful time of the year. Everyone’s house is beautifully decorated with colorful lights or dull and boring white ones. People smile at me in the check out line at Walmart, instead of running me over with their carts to

Holding Out For a “Heroes”

Saturday, 14 November 2009 by

So about a year and a half ago, I was somehow suckered into watching the pilot episode of Heroes. My friend had bought season 1 on DVD and after watching it, was “convinced” that I would “totally love it.” That statement alone made me tempted to throw the collection in the same box that houses

A Hallow Extreme?

Friday, 30 October 2009 by

Ah it is that time of year again. The leaves have fallen. A chill is in the air. Pumpkins have been picked. Cider steams up my morning mug. Yes, this is absolutely my favorite time of year. A time when the hard-core, conservative Christian residents of the Bible Belt attempt to ban Halloween from the

Bromance, Homance, and Nomance

Friday, 16 October 2009 by

My quickly dwindling supply of incoming funds, combined with mortgage-payment-equivalent ticket prices, has left my thirst for late summer cinema unquenched. In layman’s terms….I’m too poor to go to the movies! Gone are the summer days where the air conditioning would break and we’d beat the heat by chilling at the local AMC. Luckily, my

Bend This, Beckham!

Sunday, 04 October 2009 by

*First off, I want to apologize again for making my devoted readers wait so long for my latest opinion. It’s not that I haven’t had any! I recently was offered an unexpected teaching job and had to jump right back into the classroom on very little notice. I promise, now that I am back into

Jon and Kate Make Me Regurgitate

Tuesday, 08 September 2009 by

I’m not embarrassed to say that until very recently, I had no idea who Jon and Kate Gosselin were. I mean, I had heard one of my friends once mention this show she watched about this couple who had a boat-load of kids and the dad was a dweeb and the mom was nuts. So
