Conversations with my wife

Posted by Jay Barry on Sunday, February 20, 2011, In : Love 

Captain Chemo Cat was off on an adventure (more on that later), and so I took out my camera and took a lot of photos of Rio just being a dork (Runs in our family).

Me (After 100 photos): Am I weird for taking a lot of photos of our cat?
Deana: No, it just means you're making up for lost time.
Me (Singing, but not very prettily): And the cat's in the cradle with a silver spoon....

Stay tuned for a day in the life of Captain Chemo Cat where he shows you he puts on his pants that same way you do.

A conversation with my wife

Her: Happy Valentine’s Day.

Me: Right back at you. I didn’t get you shit.

Her: I didn’t get you anything either.

(Smiles all around.)

Her: Thank you for taking care of my cat.

Me: Thank you for my motorcycle.

(Then the scene degenerates into smooching.)

The father in the TV show Modern Family tries to tell his wife that Valentine’s Day isn’t about who wins (She unveiled a motorcycle she bought him for V-day and claimed to be the winner), but really, we both win.

The oddities of book selling

Posted by Jay Barry on Wednesday, February 2, 2011, In : Books 

I had a little time on my hands so I looked up “Throttling the Bard” on Amazon. I was pleased to see that other bookstores had picked up my book and were selling it, but surprised that a store (The Meirin USA) not only has it in stock, but ships out of Japan! (Naturally they had the most expensive price.) So I go to their site and try to find my book, but it didn’t come up in ...
