That’s a Good One

I know my friends don’t find me very funny, and I’ve accepted that. The other day we were driving around and saw that thing where shoes are hanging on the telephone wire and I said “Hey, check out those shoes, I hope those cables aren’t…LACED with anything.” Nobody laughed.

Selena The Hero

OH. MY! Well, I think we’ve somehow ended up at square one, which I’m very happy about. The general consensus seems to be that Week of Our Lives is back on form, before it was before all the weird stuff, and that one about the driving was just a weird concept episode that they’re not going …

Use Electricity Wisely, Kids

I’ve come a long way in my appreciation of electricity. I remember being six years old and being told by my older brother that if I stuck a fork in the power outlet, I’d power up like a superhero and be able to fly and shoot lightning bolts. So yeah, my brother was a brat…and …

Gots to Have My Hair Oils

I just can’t get up in the morning without two things: my violin jam session, and my essential hair oils. I get up, do my yoga stretches, my Shinto stretches, and sometimes my meditation poses if I have time. Then I tune my violin and play whatever comes into my head, like a free-flowing musical …
