Aimless Banter

What do I do on the airplane on a 4+ hour flight where they announced that the WiFi is not working?  Two things:  1) Write and 2) Drink (not necessarily in that order).  So here we go – more random thoughts – for your entertainment only.  Please consult your physician before reading – ...

Top Hits = Top Scam

I wanted to fill everyone in on a MAJOR discovery that I just made.  This may disrupt your world - cause you to lose your mojo - upset your chakra - turn your aura black - or just generally piss you off.  I haven't slept the same since I figured this one out.  So I apologize for ruining your day. ...
