Social Media and the Nature of Friendship (or Stop Poking Me, I Hardly Know You)

The big problem with living in an age where everyone is plugged into everyone else’s business is that everyone is plugged into everyone else’s business. So far there seem to be two competing models for the online experience. On the

What Do You Want? (or My Inner Dialogue Part Two)

So I’m talking to myself again and I say, “Hey me.” “Oh, you again?” “What do people want?” “You mean besides sex, oxygen and the occasional jelly donut?” “Yeah.” “How should I know?” “You’re people, aren’t you? What do you

My Heroes Aren’t So Super (or Nobody Looks Good in Spandex)

When superheroes first came on the scene, they were just like us, only more so. Sure, they had a cool power or two but mostly they were real people with real problems. Maintaining secret identities, trying to get a date

Eye Candy (or That Stuff Will Rot Your Brain)

It’s okay if you don’t like comic books. Sorry, graphic novels. Sheesh. When I was growing up we never had a lot money to spare. It’s not that we were poor, but it was more like a choice between comics

It’s The Little Things (Or You Don’t Know What You Got ‘Til It’s Gone)

Sometimes it’s the small things that will make your day. Like when a pretty girl or charming boy smiles at you for no reason. (I usually check my zipper when that happens.) Or when a certain song plays on the

Living the Dream (or Fake It Until You Make It)

Some days you just don’t feel like laughing. I’ve often heard phrases like “smile when you say that, they can hear it in your voice.” And while that’s true, it doesn’t mean you feel like smiling. Most of the time

Owning It (or You Made Your Bed, Don’t Lie About It)

Have you ever done something so embarrassing that you gave serious thought to trying to build a time machine? Did you ever wait in line for hours for an autograph from your favorite celebrity only to drool on yourself? Did

Kittens vs. Schadenfreude (Or Read This or Teh Kitteh Gets It!)

A battle between the forces of good and evil is being fought on the Internet. No, it’s not the latest MMORPG or the Avengers movie. This is a real life struggle between those who would inspire us with soft, fluffy

It’s Award Season (or You Like Me, You Really Like Me)

It’s award season in blogger land. At first I thought it was just a bunch of people getting together to congratulate each other so they didn’t feel like they were wasting their time. But then I thought that pretty much

Romance in the Modern Age (or Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places)

So break out the wine and the Barry White, it’s time to talk romance. No, this isn’t a discussion about smutty books, not that there’s anything wrong with that. I’m talking about connecting with real people here. There has been
