Protesting is Fun

      I didn’t put much thought into my sign lol A lot of people are afraid to protest cuz they think it will be an angry mob mentality or something but that’s actually the opposite of what this protest is about. Yes, we’re angry and afraid back at home. But here we have…

My Dad, The Rebellious Vet

   My dad has always been a super smart dude. When he kept seeing men his age getting drafted and shipped off to Vietnam only to get shot on the front lines, he said “fuck that shit!” But instead of fleeing to Canada, he enlisted in the navy since they were always on ships and…

VIDEO: The Best Costume Ever

    All my old coworkers (who lived in their cars with me back in the day) threw a costume party out in the desert. My favorite part was Zoltar. I went as “Hilary Clinton Beaten To A Pulp By the Media” cuz I will always defend the way we treat women, regardless of their…

I Can’t Figure Out What My Dad’s Supposed to be For Halloween 

So Derek threw a Halloween party today at the memory care center for all the residents and their family members, including grandkids. He brought costumes for all the patients as well as candy, fried Oreos, and homemade cupcakes. He even had a cake walk and “table trick or treating,”which involved pushing their walkers or rolling…
