Top 5 reasons Dogs are better than Cats

We know we’ll get in trouble for this one. There are people in this world, we know it is hard to believe, that actually like cats. Since we are allergic to them and know they are the foot soldiers of Satan, we tend to steer clear of the furry beasties. But in case there is any doubt out there, we decided to compile this list to straighten out any misconceptions about cats versus the wonderful dog.

Feeding Frenzy of Crazy

This has been a week of discussing family of origin issues. We have talked about systems (lightly), cut off (amputation) and how the media has warped our sense of how to deal with family issues. The post on Monday alluded to a family thing that inspired the topic. So as promised by Paul on Monday, here is the why we wrote about ‘What do you do when your family and friends are more f’d up then you?’

‘You say Tomato, I say shut Up: A love story’ Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kahn

First thing Annabelle Gurwitch said to us was ‘You know we’re just kidding, right?’ After listening to her read from the book, interspersed with some back story and other funny bits, it seemed that Annabelle and Jeff were really the anti-CoupleDumb; a married couple who couldn’t agree on anything who wrote in a he said/she said manner.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have spent a week talking about the state of marriage. As we wind up the week, we can safely say that marriage is in trouble in general.

I don’t do heroes… or do I?

Today we are blessed with a post from our friend Christine the author of Raised Queer. We don’t remember if she found us or we found her but we are very happy to know each other now. Her blog is no-nonsense and whether she is just sharing her own everyday crazies (where she mentions us. We swear she never received a dime or sexual favor for this)or ranting about judgmental people, she is honest, irreverent and funny. Check out her words on heroes. Then go read her blog (especially the two posts we just mentioned). Thanks you Christine!
