Gaffigan and Food: A Match Made in Heaven

I’m about to review Jim Gaffigan’s new book Food: A Love Story, but first I wanted to let you know that I am eating a donut. I think the author would want it that way. This summer, I reviewed Gaffigan’s previous book, Dad Is Fat. It chronicled his life with his wife and five kids in a two-bedroom […]

The Facebook Activist

Economic Meltdown Song

Apparently, humor can be found in just about anything. (Thanks to Ryan H. for telling me about these guys. Oddly enough, I had never heard about them until a month ago, even though they grew up in Buies Creek and now live in Lillington, which are both very close to Fayetteville, where I grew up.)

June/July 2008: Books Read

Last month I didn’t post my monthly brief reviews of books I read. The reason for this is that I didn’t read any books during the month of June. I took Herodotus’ The Histories with me on the cruise that I was on from June 3 to June 19, and read a bit of it […]

My New Career as a Plasma Donor

After I had been unemployed and looking for work for a few weeks, I decided to take matters into my own hands and donate plasma. When you donate plasma, unlike when you donate blood, those who take your plasma do not rely exclusively on your sense of altruism. When you donate blood, it is your […]
