Question: What do all the following have in common?
Anyone want to trade lungs and throat? I'll throw in a kidney to spice up the deal a bit in your favor.
I'm only partially kidding. Being sick sucks.
...is there so much hate in the world?
Well done, SCOTUS. Well done, indeed.
Anybody who feels otherwise can just leave. Now.
You would think a huge chain warehouse club store like Sam's Club (a Walmart company), which has, to the best of my knowledge, been around for three decades would have something simple like processing memberships down to a science.
I have not seen The Avengers: Age of Ultron yet. I'm unsure about seeing Ant-Man. Not going to bother with the new Fantastic Four. I could care less about the announcement of another Spider-Man casting. The whole Superman vs. Batman movie just has me wary. I'm not watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Arrow, Flash, or Gotham.
There's nothing quite like driving Nathan to daycare yesterday, already running late, only to hear a strange gagging sound from the backseat.
Wanna hear something pretty amazing? According to Typepad, today is my 10th anniversary of blogging. Well, "official" blogging using actual blogware.
Before I start, a quick Happy Father's Day to all the daddys, grandfathers, great grandfathers, fathers-in-law, stepfathers, half fathers, caregivers, etc.
I read an article earlier this week about a girl who is pushing to have her university's library ban a list of graphic novels. Oh yeah, her parents are in on it, too.
Fear not, ladies and gentlemen, Nathan is back on the market!

I think this posting from Facebbok last night says it all...
Eric and I have decided which day of the Pitchfork Music Festival we will be attending. Finally.
I recently read a story about a local high school kid who died this past weekend. He had been diagnosed several years ago with an enlarged aorta and he finally succumbed to the lasting effects of his condition.
C'mon Blackhawks! Win tonight! Take the 3-2 lead! Then one more on Monday!
Yesterday, Katie and Nathan came down to where I work to take me out to lunch. I love when we get to do this. It's such a fun break in the day and happens not nearly often enough.
Have you ever heard of Olly Moss? He's an artist renowned for his highly creative poster interpretations of movies and other pop culture.
Last Wednesday, the long-tenured run of Archie Comics came to an end with issue number 666.
Are things looking a little, er, different around here these last couple of days?
I am officially two Story Sundays behind my weekly schedule.
Congratulations to American Pharaoh on being the first Triple Crown winner since 1978!
After watching the Chicago Blackhawks lose game two of the Stanley Cup Finals, we threw on Netflix and watched The Interview. Yanno, the one where Seth Rogen and James Franco attempt to assassinate Kim Jong-Un.
Today, I attended an Adobe Users Conference at the Doubletree Hotel in Oak Brook, IL. Normally I wouldn't be this specific about a location, but I have a beef.
Nathan has a weird habit of climbing up on my lap and then sitting on his knees facing me and rubbing his face against my beard.
Oh my, was May a rough one on the ol' goals front. So many factors at play here.
So so tired. But so so much to write. But so so tired.
