Angels and (Personal) Demons

This week’s topic is therapy but before we continue, we need to issue a warning. If you are not accepting of Jungian, hippy, out of body, experiential , subconscious-talking kind of shit or if you are one of our fundamentalist readers who believe that God is a perennial grouch who giveth and taketh in direct proportion to our blind obedience then you might want to stop reading now and check back in tomorrow. We’ll write something funny on Saturday.

The State of Marriage

This week is interesting since around midweek Lee’s in-laws will be visiting. They are scheduled to be in town for about a week. Although there is no tensions between Lee and her in-laws, we think it should be obvious who of us is a little more freaked about the visit. However, we need to focus because the topic of this week is the state of marriage and that deserves all of our attention. So Mom and Dad-in-law need to take a knee while we share our thoughts and insights on WTF is up with marriage.

Drilling to the Core

Monday is here and, unlike most parents of this great country, we have our kids home. Why? Teacher planning day. The concept of ’Teacher Planning Day’ seems ridiculous to us. As teachers, we were planning all the time and the moment the kids left, we were cleaning up the mess. Perhaps it is just us but we see this as another example of how people define things. People say everything is relative and that includes the ways of being and values that matter the most to us. So strap yourself in because we are getting really deep this week. How deep? We’re drilling to the core!

Cameras in a Rehab! What a great idea.

Monday is a day where we desperately need to refocus our attentions and pinpoint our addled brains on a topic that will fascinate and spark insight as to the issue of human relations. Sure, we’ve thought about doing weeks on feather top versus memory foam (neither of which we actually use) and Coke versus Pepsi (easy, Coke). Neither of these topics elicits ranting or even a contemplative moment. So this week’s topic was brought about by watching TV and the glut of Reality Programming that we are forced to watch to just escape everyday life. This week we salute the Reality TV program and discuss how it helps or hinders our understanding of human relations.

Heroes Poop Too

Monday brings out the best and worst in people. Monday separates the men from the boys and the winners from the losers. Monday is the litmus test for your mettle. It shows you what you are made of. If this is the case, CoupleDumb is 90 percent coffee and 10 percent grouchiness. HA! We kid. Now, we will say that we are doers. We don’t sit around and wait for people to do things for us or for the world to hand us what we want. We are the stuff that heroes are made of plus a whole lot of caffeine and bitchiness.

Life’s Everyday Crazy

When Monday arrives with a vengeance, we like to brace ourselves with coffee and sarcasm. Truth be told, we are a quirky pair with loads of odd habits and beliefs. Happy omens and bad luck totems are just a couple of things that help us grade our days. This week, we have decided to dedicate to what we call ‘Everyday crazy’. We are not referring to certifiable loonyness but the stuff we do to make life a little easier. We would like to note that we don’t necessarily condone the everyday crazy. We are just willing to overlook yours if you overlook ours.

In the beginning…

We have a week into 2010 under our belts. Back to work, back to school, back to normal. If you are parents, we know you are happy to get the kids back in school today. Sure it’s bittersweet but the sweet makes up for any sadness. Right now, 2010 is a possibility and a hope filled with colorful expectations. Many find the need to attack the year with a handful of goals or resolve to change. We talked about that last week and now can focus on a more positve theme. Our readers know we spent 2009 talking about how we mess up relationships and we would like to launch this year with how to start over. Let’s begin the year on the right foot or left, to accomodate sinistrality.

No Resolutions

Well, how are those New Year resolutions going? Did you start them yet? Have you already failed? Or did you give up declaring ‘I don’t do new year resolutions’ sometime in December? If so, then you came to the right place. We don’t believe in them either. So keep reading and we can fill your head with all kinds of good reasons not to diet, hit the gym, eat a salad or all of the other things that you promised would start at midnight on the first day of the year. Welcome to Monday at CoupleDumb for the week that we call ‘No Resolutions’.

Happy New Year from CoupleDumb

As we say goodbye to 2009 and get ready for 2010, CoupleDumb takes a look at the year that kicked ass! We started our humble blog on January 19, 2009. Prior to this, our experience with blog writing was nil. In fact, we only became acquainted with blogs the month before. We are writers who happen to blog now. Lee has written a couple of novels and is working on her third while Paul has one novel under his belt and is easily one of the best writers out there. The blog was a way to establish a writing platform. We never expected the response we received nor did we expect that we would love writing about relationships. So consider this the ‘best of’ and shit you should have learned over the past year. It’s like the review before the final. Oh we will be asking those hard questions and Paul will bring up random trivia like why do they name cows ‘Bossy’?
