Matt and I are painting our bedroom. Of course, we’re doing it in mid-winter, which means sealed windows and paint fumes strong enough to choke a horse, but no matter. We’re determined to replace very tired-looking wallpaper, no matter how tired we get.

The process includes moving dressers and the bed around, so that means uncovering months – make that years – of dust bunnies, dirt, dead insects and hair balls. Yuck. It’s amazing what you find under a dresser that hasn’t moved since you moved in. Continue reading “LaughLines: It’s Not Easy Being Clean” »

Recently, several studies have revealed some surprising, and possibly quite embarrassing, results concerning the sexy social media behavior of Boomers.

I can’t even imagine how many times my family had to listen to Greatest Love of All blasting from my room during the mid 80’s. It was usually accompanied by my own belted out vocals, though sometimes I would just give it a hearty lip-sync. Either way, it was quite an anthem for the 8 year old chubby, insecure, gay-in-training me. Continue reading “You Are Your Greatest Love of All” »

It’s time for the New Year, people. 2013 is leaving the building. Now I don’t know about you, but 2013 was kinda rough. It was a challenging one, with a lot of major change. So many people I know lost jobs, loved ones, or even senses of their life direction, causing major life questions to take hold of the mind and pummel it.

Still, I believe 2013 will be looked back upon as a year that “started it all”. Continue reading “The Beginning of The Rest of Your Life” »
