    Book Giveaway! Recipes for Disaster by Tess Rafferty

    My friend Tess writes jokes that probably already made you laugh.

    a few notes to send out Dear Eric, As much as you love visiting your family, I’m very excited that you are coming home tonight. I wish it weren’t so late. I’m not too familiar with the new airport, so I don’t know if I’ll meet you at the gate or not. I’ll be somewhere […]

    childhood memories involving chocolate I have been sitting around looking at that box of chocolate and I’ve been flooded with so many memories: When I was younger I was a chocolate hoarder.  I would never eat all of my Easter candy because I always wanted some left over for the option of eating later.  Having […]

    a headache for me So, I just wrote this huge entry, when my machine shut itself down and erased it. So, to recap, since I’m angry:
