I’ve been wanting to visit a podiatrist, but I am daunted from seeking healthcare, daunted by my insurer. Humana refuses to thoroughly update their database of “approved” physicians to reflect the reality of post-Katrina New Orleans. This may come as a shock but after the floods of ’05 many doctors simply ain’t there no more. […]Read More → Broke My Damn Toe and Other Entries in the Annals of Idiocy
These are my answers (from about a month ago) to a really dumb chain e-mail which I got from a really close friend. I’m posting this here just for fun but please, if you get the e-mail, don’t propagate it. Invent something better.

Did you know you can watch the space shuttle take off from Vero Beach? We didn’t. So we just missed it last Friday. “Hey, I wonder why all those people are gathered on the beach?” We sure felt stupid. Speaking of stupid, how about this shuttle mission? The insulating blanket seems to have been improperly […]Read More → Shuttled and Scuttled
Xy came home today without her car. She took a cab. Why? Because she lost her keys. Looked everywhere at the school, couldn’t find ’em. Probably I should have taken a cab there, so we could have driven back together using my keys, but we were too stupid to figure that out at the time. […]Read More → Stupidity
My wrist was hurting this morning, and I was having a sneezing fit, so I took a hydrocodone tablet which was left over from my wisdom tooth debacle back in January.
