We all laughed at the spaced-out Miss South Carolina when she babbled about education and South Africa in 2008. But Santa Cruz has its own brand of crazy babbling. I guess it could happen anywhere, any time someone starts a speech without thinking through what they'll say. This must be why people fear public speaking.
Does it reflect badly on our town? The

I wish I has a picture for you all, I really do, becuase the image it left in my mind hasn't gone away.
A friend and I parked up on the hill somewhere like Miramar or sommat, where we drank our tea and ate our Ferrell's chocolate old fashoineds. It was close to midnight, the city was quiet though her lights still burned underneath a star spangled sky and

It was late afternoon as we walked along the railroad tracks, the setting sun a dazzling gold ball before us. My daughter had volunteered to dog sit while a friend was out of town, and we were now returning to our cat filled abode.
A dark shadow passed in front of the sun, then swooped before us again before landing just a few feet away on the fence. Deep

I wasn't able to sleep, and judging from the noises coming from the washer, drier and Jake's room in the wee morning hours, neither was Jake.

While the rest of you are grappling with the national hypocracy of the Iraq war, buying presents for xmas, the financial crisis, existential angst, ennui, depression and tendencies towards alcoholism, I am honing my skills for the coming zombie apocolypse at CrazyMonkey games (that's right, a mixture of all the above!)

We're pretty lazy about Christmas decorations at my house, but luckily up the street there's an incredible display. This picture doesn't do justice; there are also animatronic polar bears and electronic Christmas carols playing. Among the beautiful details, I count at least two lit-up Christmas trains, three Santa-and-sleighs, a giant snowflake and
