I know it’s been a while since I’ve written, and I specifically decided at one point to wait so I could come back strong with a blog about…my wife. That’s right, the sensitive underbelly of my harsh nature that many friends and family have endured will once again be exposed publicly. It sounds like something […]Read more "The Birthday Bunny Blog"
For my birthday, Agent Bun got me LOST: the complete series on Blu-Ray. As expected, we’ve dived in and started watching it again. LOST is one of those rare shows, like The Wire, that the two of us loved equally. Even on nights where I’ve pondered whether any jury would convict, hostilities ceased for LOST.

I still cry during Mass when certain music […]Read more "Of Course I Think of My Mom"

While it deserves a knock for being completely incomprehensible if you haven’t seen the first part […]Read more "Harry Potter and The End of The Road"
Recently, and so as to avoid spoilers I won’t say which one, I saw a movie that featured a faithful canine character. He (or she? I don’t know, and it was never settled in the movie) was shaggy and cute, as dogs tend to be. Hopefully this one won’t go all Benji on us and […]Read more "It’s OK to Kill the F***ing Dog"
