Butter Question On A Social Networking Site

(The following is a recent online conversation I had about butter, salt, and margarine with some of my friends on a certain social-networking site. Names have not been changed to protect any innocents. All are guilty!) Read the rest of this entry »

Antique Stained-Glass Window For the Bachelor Pad

Earlier this summer I found this great stained-glass window at an antique shop in Iowa. It was perfect because I'd been looking around for a nice one at a decent price, but everything similar cost about 50% more or just wasn't appealing enough. This was just right. I even managed to get the seller to come down a bit on price. Score! This 2' x 3' window might not be terribly old, but I like the design and the colors. I also like the cathedral/church window shapes within the window. Read the rest of this entry »

Dating Inquisition By My 8 Year-Old Niece

Friday Song-I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You

My friend Peter posted this video online a few days ago & it’s been stuck like gum to the sole of my brain ever since.  Our Friday Song,  Black Kids‘ “I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You“, was released 3 years ago, but apparently not as widely as it should have been, otherwise I would’ve peppered it into various playlists long ago.  The long title might work against it, but the song finds awesomeness in being the love child of The Cure and The Go! Team, 2 very different, but swell bands.  Check it out.  Happy Friday, Goatlings!

The Dating Sweet Spot

So, there’s this hilarious mythical theory stating that from ages 35 to 45 men are in the perfect position to date the widest age range of women: from post college lasses in their mid twenties to the lasses’ 55 year old mothers (but not actually the mothers and daughters simultaneously because that would be weird). It's known as the Dating Sweet Spot. One could surmise, based purely on age averages, that men in their 30s and 40s cut right in between those extreme age groups of women, thus giving credence to this theory of successfully dating all around the outer edges of time and space.
