Honking. And I’m not talking about Canadian geese; I’m talking about the honk of a car horn. I loathe being honked at. Ok, before I tell the whole story, full disclosure.

U-Verse Sucks, Zappo’s Rocks
Get ready for an “Ohio”-type story*—this is going to take a while. But I'll start off with the bottom line. AT&T U-verse sucks.

Little Diner, Don’t Mess with my Mama or her Friend!
Little Diner, Don’t Mess with my Mama or her friend! This week, I was hot over tamales sent from the west Texas town of El Paso. My mom sent me one dozen Christmas tamales from The Little Diner in El Paso, Texas. I love tamales. They were good, but they were not $88.50 good. This … Continue reading Little Diner, Don’t Mess with my Mama or her Friend!
We, The People
We, the People. While Odd and politics certainly have a lot in common, I would have probably steered clear of this post, if the blog post, Tsk, Tsk Mr. President. Are You For Us Or Against Us? on They Call Me Jane, had not riled me up and poured me a cup of courage. I heard … Continue reading We, The People
