Well, okay, I’m not nearly as bad as some people I know who sustain a constant caffeine high throughout the day. And I’m not like my friend Matt, who fancies himself a coffee connoisseur. I actually think I see a tear in his eye every time I add sugar or milk to his high-end, self-ground, lovingly brewed java.
But ultimately it doesn’t matter whether you’re a fan of instant or a bean elitist. If you’re anything like me, you just consider today a super-fantastic-great day because, regardless of cost or quality, all those cups of tasty hot joe we down will be in honor of National Coffee Day! More >
It’s an awful feeling, not being sure if you’re gonna make it or if you’re gonna be the butt of a bad joke for the rest of your natural-born life. Thankfully, we made it to my place without incident, only to find that I had NO IDEA where my keys could be! More >
That means it’s time to store the air conditioners and flip on the fans; store the shorts and slip on the sweaters! Or, in my case, super-comfy hoodie sweatshirts! And though I’m not, generally speaking, a fan of wearing shoes, I do love a pair of thick fuzzy socks!

Not too long ago, one of my designer friends on the MFC team suggested that we do a fun, cinematic black & white eCard for PB & Jay. I was extremely into the idea and immediately jumped to a Sam Spade type script.
Suffice it to say, I’m a sucker for a good mystery! I just spent several weeks reading the entire Sherlock Holmes collection. I adore Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe series, and was a big fan of the short-lived TV show, too. And, of course, who can deny the genius of the queen of mystery, Agatha Christie? Every time I stumble upon Hercule Poirot on the tube, I’m trapped until the big reveal. More >
