Go On, Touch My Maggie.

You know you want to. The folks at Praetorian Group, for whom I write a regular column on EMS1, have just informed me that I’m a finalist in the 2014 Maggie Awards, for “Best Regularly Featured Web, eNewsletter or Digital Edition Column/Trade.” This is my fourth time as a Maggie finalist, and I won the […]

Welcome to Adulthood

As of 2:00 pm today, I am in debt for the next thirty years officially a homeowner. And now that the papers are signed and the deed is done, I would like to say this to my FHA mortgage underwriters: You can call go eat a big bowl of dicks. Thanks for making my Thanksgiving […]

Happy Blogiversary To Me

On this day in 2006, I posted my very first entry on this blog. Seven years later, after roughly three million unique hits, four million page views (SiteMeter has been significantlyundercounting my hits ever since I switched platforms five years ago), and 2,045 blog posts, I'm still writing, and you're still reading. You people seriously […]

Overheard On The Bolance

Fussy Grandmother: “Now don’t you drop my grand-baby!” AD (winking at the child’s mother): “We do try to avoid such things, Ma’am. Too much paperwork involved.” FG (huffily) “Well, doesn’t that beat all! You’re more concerned with paperwork than taking care of my granddaughter!” AD: “Taking care of brave, pretty little girls like her is […]

Topped a cool two million unique visits sometime earlier today. That was months after I figured it would happen, but I finally got there. I need to post more often. Thanks to all my readers for making it fun, and here's to the next two million. May they get here sooner rather than later. More […]
