My 20 year high school reunion is coming up. Got the email invite from an old friend. He hoped I would want to go. Not in a million years. I mean, yes, I want to go. I want to see those amazing wierdos so bad, but no. Just no. I can’t imagine how whincingly, gut […]

I KNOW IT’S A GIRL BECAUSE I YELLED SUSAN B. ANTHONY AT THE MOMENT OF CONCEPTION -Tracy Jordan (30 Rock Season 4 Episode 09 – Klaus and Greta) For a long time my Beau and I playfully honored this 30Rock oddity after our attempts. Mostly cause it’s funny and absurd, but partially because we secretly hoped it came from the bizarro mind […]
