  • The Monster at 3 A.M.

    8/13/2017 4:16:25 AM, by LUNADRAGON

    There is a monster lurking, when sleep eludes me, and I want to nest, and cuddle, and sleep. As sleep resists me, like the sandman lurking somewhere down the street, or on the moon, the monster called sleeplessness takes over bringing his best buddy, Hungry Will Solveit. Hungry Will does NOT solve i... Read more

    Union meeting and I didn't win again. I'm getting a complex about it. Stopped at the thrift store on the way home. I almost didn't. I'm glad I did, though. I found nearly a dozen Breyer horses. Only one of them was damaged and I didn't buy it. I'm willing to bet that one was whole when it was donate... Read more

    So, Taylor Swift's song "You Belong With Me" came on the radio the other day and it got me thinking about things. On how growing up so much emphasis is placed on how the girl looks and that determines the guy she will get. I remembered growing up and seeing all these girls in the bathroom making sur...
