Episode 2 – Ambien and Emails: A Public Service Announcement

Learn what happens when you use and abuse this magical sleeping medication.  It’s funny while also being a tad bit scary at the same time.  If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on some, consider yourself special because the doctors are clutching this stuff like it’s some rare element. The Opticynicism Blogcast continues! This …

I’m already tired of your shit, Irma!

There is nothing more annoying than preparing and planning and getting yourself all revved up for a new, maybe even life-changing adventure and having it completely screwed with by a new, maybe even life-changing catastrophic event. This coming weekend was the intended release of our first podcast episode for Brick Wit House and Hurricane Irma …

The Transition is Complete. Time to Podcast!

The mayhem of the move is over and I’m settling in at the new place just great.  Really nice place and I’m here by myself almost ALL the time, which, as you all know, it exactly how I like it. 3 years at Liz’s place, almost exactly.  3 years and a month.  So many things …

Things, they are a-changin’! Not really the way I expected, but they are.  I skipped a week making a post . . . or was it two?  I don’t know, I’m too lazy to look at the date on the last post to figure it out.  Lazy?  Tired?  I just don’t care? Yeah, all of …

This Post is Offensive

Not because I want it to be offensive, but because it will be . . . to somebody, somewhere. How do I know that? Because EVERYTHING offends somebody. I’d like to thank BarbaraM for inspiring this post.  She was the first (and at this point, the only) person to comment on my last post.’ Understand, …
