Funny Kid Story . . .

Today I happened upon an old email in my Lotus Archives and remembered this funny kid story and thought I'd share. About five years ago, my then-five-year-old, JC, loved to watch a television show called "How It's Made." I think it was on the Discovery Channel (it may still be). He loved the episodes showing…

Breaking Bad Withdrawal- “Jesse Pinkman Lives” Fan Fiction

I'm not sure about all of you out there in Blogtropolis, but I'm missing Breaking Bad. Yeah, The Walking Dead premiered Sunday night and it was good (not great, in my opinion), but despite TWD, Scandal and my other favorite shows premiering, as well as Knicks preseason, the NFL (including the Jets being better than the Giants so…

Sometimes there's cursing and yelling involved.…

Seinfeld Trivia Answers

Hi everyone! I received mixed reviews on my Seinfeld trivia-- some thought it was too hard and others thought it was just right. Zombie expert and author Jack Flacco made a great effort-- obviously he's a "Seinfeldic Scholar" (a term coined by David). For the rest of you, Seinfeldic Scholars or not, here are the questions and…

What’s Up, Blogtropolis??!!!

HI EVERYONE! I've missed being here on WordPress!  In fact, I feel like everything has changed here-- there must have been some sort of update because my "Add New Post" screen that I'm looking at as I type this looks so faaannnncy schmancy!  Different font, updated look. It's so pretty and easy on the eyes.…
