I think we can all agree that this social distancing stuff is basically requiring maximum effort from all of us, at least to maintain some semblance of sanity. Admittedly, that's not something Deadpool is known for--the sanity, that is--but I'm still saying these socks are the perfect fit for Saturday #2 of our collective grounding. … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 8
I was thinking happy thoughts and having fond remembrances this morning of the Before Times, lo, 10 days ago, when a person in America could saunter up to a bar and grill—hell, even an Applebee’s, if you were pressed for a spot—and order a big sloppy cheeseburger and a cold beer.

One of my first tasks to kick off the upcoming weeks of “social distancing” was to find the appropriate pair of socks from the archives. As it turns out, though, I don’t actually have any pairs with either pandemic symbols or adorable little hazmat suits in a spot pattern.

The last time I wrote an honest-to-goodness post here, I seem to recall saying something, maybe, about a book I had written, kinda sorta being published, or whatever? I think it had something to do with this... You know what? Forget that nonsense. I was going to try to pretend to be all calm and … Continue reading JR Andrews’ Big Day
