My annual holiday pilgrimage to visit family is looming this weekend -- and this one is shaping up to be a monster.
Not so much when I get where I'm going, of course. The actual holiday experience is forecast to be no more or less monstrous than usu

This morning, I entered an emasculation contest.
Well Not "entered", precisely. "Was chucked into" is more like it. I imagine that's how emasculation contests usually go; nobody enters them willingly. Like marathons, probably.
Anyway, there's some

I've been noticing a lot of urine lately.
Let me rephrase that.
I've been noticing people making a big deal out of urine lately. In particular, the color and how it relates to overall health. Those little "pee hue" charts are everywhere, it seems.

It's said that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. I don't know what those who ignore toilet seat history are doomed to, exactly, but I'm quickly finding out. And it's not pretty.
Here's the thing.

I meet new people from time to time.

I was at the office today, in the middle of a pre-annual review chat with my boss, and she asked me what seemed like a very simple question:
"Are you happy?"
I knew what she meant. And I knew what the right answer was. But things are never quite so

I don't have a problem blazing my own trail. Walking the path less taken. Beating my own drum, non-euphemistically speaking.
Still. Sometimes I wonder.
In the summer, the company I work for offered employees a chance to buy into a CSA. Naturally, I

Imagine, for a moment, you're me.
All right, stop pretending to throw up in your mouth a little. Very funny, smartass.
So, you're me, just for a moment. One specific moment, in fact. Last Friday afternoon, a couple of minutes after three. You're la
