Sugar Addict

I have a heroin-level addiction to sugar. I am like a junkie, but instead of sticking a needle in my arm, I stuff sugar down my gullet as quickly as I can.

Don’t Be So Touchy

I didn't grow up in a touchy feely home. I don't remember us being big huggers or anything. Not that it was a cold house—we just weren't an overly … [Read More...]

Meditate in May

I think we've established that I'm not always the most calm person on the planet. I'm your typical Type A (“A” is for “asshole”) person, who strives … [Read More...]
