It’s almost here, that day we’ve all been warned about, Friday, December 21st, 2012. In the 1970’s, New Age scholars revealed to the general population what they believed was a Mayan prediction of the apocalypse. That prolific day in December of this year marks the conclusion of what is called […]
The whole fam damly
Okay, it wasn’t the whole family, but it was a fairly decent slice of the Ranjbars (and Mangewalas) that came to visit me last week. For Ray Ranjbar (my dad), Rob Mangewala (my brother-in-law) and Arissa (my super-cool niece), it was the first trip ever to New Orleans. Nancy (my […]
Why I don’t go out on Lundi Gras
My friends often tell me I have interesting stories to tell. Stories about my life and strange incidents I experience seem to enthrall them to no end. So, here’s a perfect story to celebrate the anniversary of the first (and only) time I ever got arrested. Once upon a time […]

All I want . . .
. . . is a sweet ride in a Cadillac with fat rims and fuzzy dice. And just to make sure everyone knows it’s a Cadillac . . .

Well I’ll be dipped…
I am a bit fanatical when it comes to anything Disney. I love the movies, the characters and the theme parks. Disney paraphernalia is dotted all throughout my house. In the kitchen alone you’ll find Alice in Wonderland S&P shakers, a “villain-ness” cookie jar featuring Ursula, Maleficent and the Evil […]
