Now get some sleep and dream of rock and roll…

Do you ever wake up with a song in your head?  (Not one of those annoying ones that you can’t stand to have there.  Just a song.  Usually a good one.) We were listening to some tunes the other night while we were playing cards, and “Chevy Van” came on.  Awesome song, with some (probably [...]

The winner takes it all…

The loser standing small… And the loser is me!  I usually stay pretty even at card games – win some, lose some.  Depends on the game of course, but I do okay.  And I always always always win at Trivial Pursuit.  If I lose at that, it’s because someone is cheating - I won’t mention names, [...]

Conversations With My Roommate, 2.

My car was in the shop last week for a cooling system leak and for brake problems.  Now, this car has been in the shop quite often for brake problems.  But, given the miles that I drive, on state highways, interstates, and in town, it didn’t really seem like it was that big a problem.  After [...]

Conversations With My Roommate, 1.

Tina: Hey, do you use that white case that came with your iPod? Me: Yea, sometimes. Tina: Can I have it?
