Job hunting is a strange experience. The whole idea is that we don our finery and present the possible version of ourselves as though we're cattle at a marketplace, suggesting that any employer will be left wondering just how they managed to run a business without us for as long as they had  

Sady, the reality is that, by the time we make it to an interview, we end up a stammering mess, unable to article the devilishly witty responses we'd been preparing for days 

I say we - it's quite…

Almost every man was sometimes sexually attracted to some of his teachers. It just happens, and you can't blame yourself.

Now, we all know how that goes. When you're a kid, and you think you're a man, you are going to talk about that kind of stuff with your mates all day long.

We were basically bunch of losers at a time. Every day we were hanging out in front of some store because they were selling cheap beer and that was all we needed. It was an ordinary, family store where people were…

I love getting invited to weddings. Free food, free drinks and free entertainment – what’s not to love? 

When my friend invited me to her Aunt’s wedding I was so excited. I went out and bought a new dress, shoes and bag just for the occasion.  Every time we saw each other, we couldn’t stop talking about how excited we were.

Fast-forward to the day of the wedding and things are already not going to plan. 

My friend who had put on a little bit of weight recently discovered that her dress…

I was pretty excited when my SO and I moved into our new condo. We'd been living with my parents and were happy to have our own space. I was especially looking forward to Halloween. My family didn't celebrate it, so now I could finally run riot with some ideas brewing in my mind.As the big day approached, I went all out creating a creepy environment. I carved an evil pumpkin, put a candle inside and placed it by the door, and looped some seriously dark music.The piece de la resistance was my…

It is my opinion that everybody hates funerals. I certainly do, because all those places where I need to be completely serious are just not made for me.

Now, once you are on the funeral, all you need to do to stay out of radar is not to be the worst. But few years ago when my best friend lost his grandpa I somehow didn't realize that getting drunk before the funeral is not such a good idea.

I admit it, I came there in style. I was dressed like a cowboy although I'm just a punk, and I was so…

So, the seven-year anniversary of my time with my partner has just been and gone  Don't panic, this isn't a tale of woe that details the threat of the fabled seven-year itch - we're happier than we've ever been  in order to make the occasion, we were shooting the breeze the other night and I asked her to describe some of her abiding memories of our time together. "What amazing memories we've made!" I was thinking 

Now, as many of you will know, the fastest way to prick the balloon of a man's…

A few years ago I got invited to a party  I wasn’t interested in going but my friend insisted that I should tag along and be her wing woman 

So, being a good friend, I turned up at the party even though it was the last place I wanted to be 

Seriously, I would have rather been at home watching TV  than be in a room full of strangers getting drunk and rowdy.

I texted my friend to let her know that I was there  but I didn’t get a reply, so I started looking for her. To be honest, I was…

In addition to getting up close and personal with the peacocks roosting above our heads at night, one of the many things my SO and I enjoyed about our visit to a working ranch was interacting with the many animals there.That included the ostriches, and the egg I took as a souvenir then forgot about at home till I found it months later. One of the billy goats, who reeked like really ripe goat cheese, took a particular fancy to my SO and tried to engage in an enthusiastic bro hug. After my SO…

You know how sometimes life has a funny way to provide justice? Sometimes you can see it, and sometimes, well, you just don't have a clue.

It was a few years ago, and I didn't wanted to come out of bed so I putted a used condom in pack of cigarettes that my friend left me earlier that day. I know it doesn't make any sense to do that, but you know how laziness can convince you to do unbelievable things.

I certainly do know that. So for some reason, even though everything leaked out of that…

Back in the days when my SO and I had a timeshare, we usually tried to get up there at least once a year. The resort was beautiful, but one summer I decided I wanted to do something different, so I found out about a working ranch in the general area that accommodated a few guests.  It seemed like a fun idea, and since I was an animal lover, I was looking forward to hanging out four a couple of days with various critters. So we drove out to this remote ranch. The wife was pretty nice, but the…
