On The Cider Report

I am gluten free, and really appreciate the availability of the ciders lately, for my pocketbook, and also because vodka is not my friend. Angry Orchard is my favorite. I find the idea of an Angry Orchard amusing. We photograph golf balls a lot at work, and the marketing department always wants them to be moody. So we try to make the golf balls moody and angry.

On The Best Time I Learned My Last Name Means Blow Job


Not overthinking it. That line was absolute perfection.

Also, I know a guy named Richard Holden III, and his father goes by Dick.

On Frosting or Icing? Firefly or "Peenie Wallie"? Brew-Thru, Beverage Barn, or "I Have Never Heard of This Concept"?

I am an Air Force brat, and I thought I could punk it too. But it nailed me as coming from New York and Michigan, where my father and mother are from, respectively.

On A Controversial Graphic Design Project for the Homeless

I'm a graphic designer too, and ... yeah. The interviews help, and I get the idea of making the homeless more visible, but I think this makes them more visible TARGETS. Like Heat Signature says below, people are going to think that if they have enough money for a sign, why do they need money from me?

I love that he's wearing a pink shirt... I bet this video was recorded/posted on Wednesday.

On Behind the Scenes at Camp Gyno, the "Best Tampon Ad in the History of the World"

I'm glad it's very quiet at work today. I can't stop crying with laughter here. AND, the camp gyno could easily be my daughter, same look, same attitude.

On Weird Boyfriends and Height Differences

@S. Elizabeth

My husband has a tendency to leave things on the top of the refrigerator... it's like a counter for him. Drives me crazy.

On Weird Boyfriends and Height Differences

@Miss Maszkerádi

I am 5'1" and my husband is 6'5", so yeah, fifteen inches height difference. His arm is the same length as my leg! Really no serious issues in the 22 years we've been together. I make him sit down when I really want him to look me in the eye, and I tend to wait on the bottom step when I want a really good kiss. It all works out. In the bedroom, we know what works and what doesn't, and pillows are extremely helpful. I love reading romance novels that have a tall man and a tiny woman, and I can tell the writer really hasn't thought about the logistics of it all; I'll be thinking there's no way! she can't do that while that's happening, all she'll get is a mouthful of chest hair!

On Interview With a Person Who Thought She Was Reincarnated

@Miss Maszkerádi
My oldest son would talk about his "other family" all the time when he was around 4, usually as a way of trying to get something he wanted: my other mommy would let me have another cookie, my other daddy let me play in the street, etc. It got to the point that his preschool teacher called me in for a meeting, and chided me for not letting her know that my son was adopted and had come from such a devastating situation. Apparently he had convinced her that his "other family" had died in a fiery car crash.

@janbrady agh! I did not see yours before I posted above. How about this... the pregnant girl from "Summer School" (Kirstie Alley, Mark Harmon)is also an orphan, and so is Martika.
