Couch Day AKA My Loved Ones Now Worry About My Mental Health

by Judi I was relatively busy on Friday and Saturday so I made myself a deal and, yes, it's not unusual to treat myself like a stubborn toddler. "If you play nice this weekend, I promise you can watch TV all day on Sunday." So, that's what I did. I played nice and then I... Continue Reading →


So You Think You Can Cry

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

aka Lazy Filmmaking at Its Finest Did you see the movie? Let's just say, I'm drinking to remember all right. The better X-Men movies, that is. If you have seen it, let's play a little game. I'm going to tell you which movies you'll be reminded of and you tell me what scene corresponds with... Continue Reading →
