Dear Diary It's been pretty busy around my house over the last couple of weeks. Not only was I getting ready for, and cleaning up after my snowboarding trip, but I've had to prepare my spare room for the impending arrival of my new roommate. This has been more work than I...
Dear Diary While many people this January have made new years resolutions to eat better and drink less alcohol, I seem to have gone the other way. It's only the 22nd of January and I feel fatter than I did before Christmas. WTF? I think there has just been a lot of parties and...
Dear Diary I had a moment yesterday of simultaneous dumbassery and extreme awesomeness. I'm sure (well I'm hoping) others have been through the same thing. And if not, I'm telling you this story as a PSA, a cautionary tale if you will. Two Sundays ago I went to see a movie at...
