Spring is in the air, baseball is on the TV. I’ve always loved playing sports and have even enjoyed watching sports (in reasonable quantities).

Someone who loves your "crazy".

My theory is this: we all have our own special brand of crazy; it’s what makes us who we are. Our “crazy” is what keeps us from being “normal”, and it’s a good thing.

Why can't we be friends?

This is a hard one for me, it’s something that has really really annoyed me since, oh, about the middle of college. Before then it just never seemed to be an issue, or at least it was only a small issue every once in a while. So what’s the question? Can men and women be …read more →

Breakups suck, divorce is worse.

I don’t make any claims of being a relationship guru. Personally the dating “game” isn’t one that I particularly enjoy playing.
