Why Do I Love Terrible Things: Glee

We keep a little spreadsheet of post ideas and publish dates around here at The Friendship Shore headquarters.  When I opened it up just now to see what my next post should be about, a big grin spread across my face.  “Glee” read the topic cell.  The chorus singing the word “Glee!” like at the […]

Day Drinking: A New Frontier

Those who know me, know that I go to bed early.  Early like your 70 year old grandma goes to bed early.  9pm is not a crazy bedtime in my book.  10:30 is downright late.  Also like your 70 year old grandmother, I like to drink booze.  My favorite way to fit that into my […]

Organ vs. Body Donation

On May 1, Facebook announced that they’ll be encouraging their users to declare their organ donor status, according to the New York Times. They say they want to use “peer pressure” to get people talking about organ donation and hopefully get more people to do it.  Personally, I don’t get it. Then again, I don’t understand […]
