It All Boils Down to YOU: A Rant

personal responsibility

Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely hate politics.  I hate politics so much that I refuse to commit to a political party and ignore anything and everything that is overtly partisan. I’m probably a libertarian, but I don’t really want to commit to that either.  I just want to think what I think, you know?  I […]

Should All Moms be Stay-at-Home Moms?


A couple of months ago, I wrote about why I’m not a stay-at-home mom.  And believe me, it wasn’t all that controversial.  I basically just outlined the reasons that I have chosen to work despite the fact that I have kids.  If you want to read that post, you can find it here: The Daycare Dilemma: What […]

The Definition of Insanity: A Comcast Rant

The Definition of Insanity

“You’ve got to be fu*#ing kidding me.” That’s my new favorite phrase. Though I blurted it out several times on Sunday night, I’m not simply reserving this new catchphrase for errant football snaps or Percy Harvin kick returns. Nope. I’ve found several real-life instances in which I’ve been able to utter this most eloquent of new maxims. Let me explain.

Billing Errors Causing Temporary Insanity: A Rant

Billing Errors are driving me crazy

I’m starting to feel like I am being secretly videotaped on that old MTV show, Boiling Points.  And let me give you a hint; my boiling point is currently T minus zero seconds when it comes to billing errors.  I have had so many billing errors in the past few years that I sometimes wonder if I am being […]

  “The night is dark and full of terrors.”   Yup yup. Have we mentioned that we LOVE  Game of Thrones around this joint? We haven’t?…Well, guess what…We do, AND the second season was released last Tuesday on DVD! Can I get a “Winterfell” up in this joint?!? HOLLA!!!   “The night is dark and full […]

I Am a Cheap-Ass Santa: A Christmas Shopping Rant

I Am a Cheap-Ass Santa: A Christmas Shopping Rant

  Well, it’s that time of year again.  Winter is coming. That means it’s time to buy your children, family, and friends stuff that they don’t really want or need….all in the name of Christmas.  I have never understood how a beautiful religious holiday turned into the giant push for mass consumerism.  Still, I plan on participating to […]

Student Loan Debt Forgiveness: A Rant

Student Loan Debt Forgiveness A Rant

I’m not sure what is wrong with me this week. I don’t know, maybe I’m just crabby. Maybe I’m tired of hearing my kids whine. Or, maybe, I’m just fed up with crap. Whatever it is, I’m getting riled up over everything lately…and nothing irritates me more than people making poor financial decisions and not taking any responsibility for […]

AT&T Internet Installation: Almost as Bad as Comcast

AT&T Internet Installation

  Fairly recently, it became very clear to me that we needed faster internet speed on our home computer.  It was slower than molasses and reminiscent of the Prodigy and Netscape days when each page took a few minutes to load.  We would often lose our signal completely, and it was very frustrating because our TV […]
