Diarya

I learned something from the movie, Parenthood (1989): “When you’re sliding into first, and you’re feeling something burst … “ “When you’re sliding into third, and you feel a juicy turd … “ “When you’re sliding into home, and your pants are full of foam … “ Diarrhea Wave the white flag. I surrender. So, it’s November…

Try Honesty

So, my last post at Syracuse New TImes was taken with offence. It’s not a bad thing, but it’s not a good thing. I have a heart and a conscience, but at the same time the writing is necessary to be honest. Some of the things that come out on the page come out dickish, which…

Snark Tuesdays

I wish I could have included last night’s divorce between Robin and Barney sentiments one of my show’s endings, but my editor doesn’t need to be angry with me with concern to submission, and the post would have been far too long.  The series finale of How I Met Your Mother made me upset, but I can find some positive…

Snark Tuesdays

If you have a bad day, don’t throw your frustrations at other people.  That’s not how you’re supposed to pay it forward. If you’re going to poke fun at something, poke fun at yourself as well (especially if people are not used to your writing, your sarcasm). My weekly latest–my second post that is riddled…
