Camping is Crap – Sorta

Well no, it really isn’t crap. Maybe you could liken camping to cold french fries that you warm up in the microwave. It is supposed to be satisfying, but they are never really as good as you expect it to be and it will probably leave you with a stomach ache and/or the runs. Also, isn’t…

Review of ARC Herding Cats (Sarah’s Scribbles #3) by Sarah Andersen

I received this as an advanced copy from Netgalley.com for an honest review. I swear, Sarah Anderson’s strips are pixelated joy.

I’d had chicken fingers for dinner, but that didn’t quite do the trick: felt kinda snackish, figured some cold cuts would about hit the spot. Looked at my options, wasn’t feelin’…

Every time a bell rings a daughter accidentally nails her daddy in the nuts.” My husbands poor poor family jewels.. “I was sitting on the couch, the other day, while Vivian was playing in the living room. She ran up to me, between my knees, like she usually…
