Guess What’s Coming Monday?

February 8, 2014


Episode 2 of MY PARENTS ARE CRAZIER THAN YOURS, The Web Series. “No Such Thing as a Free Lunch.” After a year of trying to figure out how to get these little nuggets of pain and humor shot, I finally took the determination inside me to say let’s just do it even if we have […]

Things My Crazy Parents Taught Me

-Fart jokes are always funny. -Always use a coupon. -It is better to receive than give.  But if you are going to give, use a coupon. -Don’t go to a buffet without Ziploc bags. -If you are going to wear sweatpants with holes, wear an ostentatiously colored sweatshirt to distract attention from aforementioned holes. -Dining […]

My brother hasn’t spoken to me since the summer when my parents found out about this blog.  He accused me of “throwing everyone under the bus.”  These were harsh words coming from someone who I took under my wing since he was born and I was an eleven year old big sister. I recently sent […]

While I was delivering my speech at my brother’s wedding, I kind of wondered why the cameraman was getting closer and closer to me.  I almost thought when I finished, he was going to say, “Wait, can we do it one more time in a medium shot?”  I was a little tipsy and too caught […]

We went to pick up my friend Rob from the train station on the fourth.  My father wanted to know why he was spending money in gas to do someone a “favor.”  He calculates every expense, like every time I open the cupboards, or the shower water is running, or the car is being used […]

“P-A-R-T-A-Y” #25

February 26, 2011


So, I decide to do something good and invite Rob over for dinner.  It’s the least I can do for him driving me around and being my faithful accomplice on the mission of embarrassing cell phone abusers.  As we drive home, my phone rings.  It’s my father who tells me that they just got home […]
