Dear Nephew Garvin,
You are 8 months old tomorrow, but possess the thighs of at least a 12 month old. They are impressive, to say the least. However, they smell like baby goodness and cleanliness and are so delightfully squishy, that I can’t hate on you for carrying some extra poundage. You are getting smarter and more dexterous each time I see you. Yesterday, you showed me quite an amusing new trick. You...

Our Story | The PTSD Diary →
My wonderful cousin Nicole and her husband J.R. have started a blog to help raise awareness and increase advocacy for those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, specifically our nation’s veterans.

Her thoughts are very organized and humorous, just like her, but her life currently, is not.

Judah Friedlander collects Bigfoot movies
Me: You know, I'm not the most hygienic of people or the most germ conscience.
Him: Do you eat food off the floor sometimes, too?
Me: Yes! Do you eat food out of the trash can?!
Me: Oh. Sometimes I do. But only if it's just been put in there and is on the top.

Your site traffic, comments, favorite, and vote could help him win this month’s competition on Zuda (an online division of DC Comics). If he wins, his comic stays on the site as a regular fixture. My heart is bustin’ with pride right now.

A Concert For One
I lived at home the summer between freshman year and sophomore of college and had an 8 to 5 office job as a receptionist slash administrative assistant. One day, I came home from work and there was a band set up on my front lawn, prepared to serenade me with the Jeff Buckley song “Lover, You Should Have Come Over.” And serenade me, they did. About two weeks before my serenade, my...
The Best Piece of Advice I Have to Give
Life has taught me many things, but the one thing it consistently shows me is this: always wear comfortable, clean, and presentable underwear. Always. Reasons: you never know when you may need to accept the help of others, or when you might need to show your skivvies. Examples: My freshman year of college, this happened and I had my first experience wearing a hospital gown for any length of...
One of my favorite people on twitter is Pete Carroll. I kid you not. If you’re not in love with one of my favorite silver foxes, then read this article from the los angeles magazine, circa 2007. Someone tell this man there’s more money in starting a religion than coaching football, because I think he could really make a killing.

Crazy With Fever
Fevers give me behavior akin to that of a drunk alcoholic. You know, the kind that give drunken man on the street interviews for Tarzan on Ice. So what I’m saying is this: Disregard most things I say in the next day or two. In less it’s a cry for help. In that case: HELP! Because I AM DYING OVER HERE. My retinas are burning and I can’t find socks. Obama healthcare needs to...
