Dear DM, @Jamescrappedcorn: Dear DM, blah blah blah blah, everything’s about me, blah blah blah. Dear Jamescrappedcorn, My day? Glad you asked! Okay, to begin with, Lena has been nursing her hands all weekend long because she is a designer and works on the computer all day and gets the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome so sheContinue Reading

Time for the Wednesday video! One of my wife’s friends had a husband that I tried (unsuccessfully) to strike up a friendship of my own with. It seemed like a good idea since the women were such close buds, and I wanted to encourage Lena to get out more. But it was not to be.Continue Reading

I said that line of reasoning was a stupid argument made by ignorant peopleContinue Reading

The song is long, boring, and very poorly sung, but when you’ve had your fill, instead of just stopping it, I’d suggest advancing to theContinue Reading
