I have been quoting the TV show Person of Interest for the last several weeks. Which… is weird because it’s mostly full of cheesy, cop drama kind of lines (judge me, but I totally love it) The quote has to do with a character on the show who seems emotionless – and it’s TV so it’s a terrible caricature. A little girl tells the emotionless character, “I figured you out. It’s not that you don’t have… … Continue reading


Is anyone actually good at apologizing? I’m not. In my head, I expect a fight. Or tears. Or… actually, I don’t know. Either way, the times I have to apologize, I dread. I hate being wrong.

This post is about both. I’m fairly confident everyone likes to be liked. Even if you are -… … Continue reading

Greatest movie of all time. OF ALL TIME.

Greatest movie of all time. OF ALL TIME.My favorite toy as a child was a little Snoopy stuffed dog. Well… okay, Snoopy dog and a little brown down I named Barney (after Barney Fife, not Barney the dinosaur – my childhood was charmed, as you can tell) because you can obviously not pick just one favorite stuffed animal.Anyway. I loved Snoopy. It’s very possible I squealed just a little bit when I saw this was… … Continue reading
