I believe it was Churchill who was quoted as saying "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma". And that quote more or less sums up this week's research into the history of BrooWaha. In response to last week's alottment of creamed corn, several Broosters admitted some acquaitance with "acid", and a guy named Joe wondered "What IS too much acid?". And I tried to do some research, but kind of phuqued up and fell flat on my face.
One bit of advice that I've heard several times is to focus my investigations on the early writing of the original Broosters. And I have spent... Read More
I've long been a fan of Tony Berkman. He is one of the sharpest people I know and I consider him a friend. If he had done some kind of not at all clear "not-exactly-a-buyout-more-like-an-angel-investor-sort-of-deal" for a site I detested, I would immediately be ready to give it another look. I had never heard of BrooWaha before one of Tony's posts on Blog Catalog caught my attention and I wandered in. And was almost immediately hooked.

I spend it like water
use it before it comes
count it like sheep
and earn it like spankings
drown in it like quick sand
and eat it like supper
dream about it at night
and feel it at day
work for it like muscles
lose it like sweat
gone tomorrowRead More
Angry? Not sure
I listen to P!nk as I pace the rooms in this empty house
Nothing and no one around
No noise except the Lyrics of Sober blaring from the computer's speakers
Understanding and feeling every word
I gobble the pie of pizza I just ordered
Trying to clear my head
I eat all alone
I was hoping I'd finish every slice
But my small body can hardly finish two whole slices
I push in another slice
Feeling like I may puke I continue to chew nonetheless
I eat... Read More
Shopping for groceries may not sound as much fun to me as it is for my son. Every time we are at the store an important decision has to be made. It’s not about what or how much to buy but the cull between curiosity and confection. With all the allure that a supercenter has to offer, keeping a child sitting on the shopping cart calm certainly can be tricky. Sometimes the situation may turn out to be a good test of a parent’s patience and tact. Such is the case when I and my son are on grocery tour together. For me, answering spontaneous questions raised by a three year old while simultaneously... Read More
Have you ever wondered how sometimes the people you consider to have bonded well may just be an example of yet another pseudo-connection in your life? That the ostensibly simple looking daily occurrences of life may perhaps be the most complicated things on earth… I have realized it. Not once; many times.
I have friends in college who have been around for the last three years now. We have enjoyed some funniest, happiest and lamest moments together. We went movies together, did assignments for each other, bunked classes to go for breakfasts and lunches, slipped out for dance parties and... Read More
At most times I understand the world and then I'll wake up to a brand new day and see things differently. Everyone has their point of view and it can confuse my little world.
After a great night's sleep (which hasn't happened a lot this summer), I awoke with the same sense of adventure I used to have pretty much everyday as a kid enjoying the freedoms of the summer months. Back then I would sit down to a prepared breakfast, watch some television, take a bath (mostly to please my Mother), and don my shorts or bathing suit. I made sure I had a few bucks or change on me, my house key, and... Read More

I know Rigina, when it takes a week for legite comments to appear it is upsetting, and it is killing the site slowly. Surely there must be a better way to address the spammers and floggers. Also taking away ratings if you do not post in a period of...
