My turkey streak is over.

My last seven meals, I ate turkey sandwiches. I finished off all the turkey today, except for a single wing I saved for Kris (I don't like to eat meat that reminds me of the animal).

We're getting pizza tonight!

I saw this last week, and I am still thinking about it

I think Mary Shelly put a curse on me for seeing the movie Frankenstein (Kenneth Branagh’s version) before reading the book, because I am haunted now.

I was expecting to see just another monster movie. It felt like it was my own selfish, flawed life that came down in a heap and caught fire, but burned slowly enough for me to watch each part curl and smolder.

I see way less vanity plates here, but when I do they're funnier

License Plate I saw on Tuesday:
