Book Review — Bullspotting October 5, 2018

Bullspotting: Finding Facts in the Age of Misinformation “Bullspotting” by Loren Collins is a book that attempts to hold a lens of hard, cold logic to an entirely illogical world in order to sift through a sea of emotionally persuasive information that overwhelms us. It is a book about critical thinking in a world in…

Chicken Soup October 2, 2016

Well, the heat finally broke here in Georgia, meaning it isn’t 80 degrees out before sunrise, and that means that I get my annual season-changing illness.  I get sick every October, this one being no exception.  I went home from work early on Friday and, more or less, have been in bed ever since.  This…

Hair Helmet March 6, 2016

I am in desperate need of a haircut. My pin straight hair is too heavy and greasy to have any volume in these dry winter days, and so it clings desperately to my skull and the sides of my face in an effort to make my cheeks look as wide as humanly possible. Sometimes one…

GPS Fails March 29, 2015

I have a pretty good sense of direction, so I’ve never really had a problem getting from Point A to an unfamiliar Point B.  Even before the days of GPS and Google Maps.  Of course, I only vaguely remember those days.  I rely heavily on my GPS and even when I know better I get…

You Can’t Always Get What You Want March 14, 2015

Theoretically, I have standards.  First world standards.  Upper middle class standards beyond that, even.  Not just clean water and delicious, plentiful food, and no military juntas at the door, but beautiful, peaceful living space with useless, but pretty, tasteful décor.  I have fantasies of having the kind of house that makes people walk in and…
