What makes a couple?
Aaron and I have been together for almost three years. In that time, we have been on ONE date. We went to a Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert, which was fantastic by the way. You’ve gotta see them if you ever get the chance. So what have we been doing all that time? We built two online… Continue reading What makes a couple?
During one of my rare father-daughter moments with my dad, he asked me why my sisters and I were upset about him adopting an adult son in China.

I REALLY HATE television ads for prescription drugs. Not only do they undermind the doctor-patient relationship (if such a thing still exists under managed health care), but they mislead the public into thinking that they can demand whatever medication that they think they need.

Well, at 5 am this morning, I decided that sounded like a really good idea. So I walked up behind him and popped him on the… Continue reading Never, ever again
