This Is About.

It's a digital age, man. So to you we present our virtual talk show of Nonsense: The Silly. The Beautiful. The True. In our own words or those quoted by others. With our own art or that created by others. We will laugh. We will smile. We will entertain you all the while. So grab a drink, come in and let's chat. We'd like to meet you, your mama, and your hot cousin Fred.


You just know, when you know.

They say you just 'know, when you know' when it's The Person.

Our parents met in college, fell in love, and never broke up. Married straight out of college, and never divorced. Had three children, and still never divorced. Lost jobs, lost friends, lost a deeply loved parent, and are still best friends. They knew, and they always told us we would just know too.

However, we don't just know which dishwasher soap to get from the grocery store. In fact, we don't return from the store for about 72 hours, each time, on average. Because we don't just know if those new dishwasher soap packet things are really better then the cheap practical powder kind we usually get. And what about name brand versus store brand? 10 for $10 specials? Lean Cuisines or Amy's Organic? We can only hope that finding Our Person will be half as hard as navigating through Jewel. Ugh.

It is much easier for us to know what we don't want, though. Not too long ago, we had a very vivid moment of shining angels flying overhead. They were singing gospel. Lightbeams were bouncing off the walls. And a sparkly magic dustball coated us in zen and peace, while we watched a friend get married. Because we realized we were feeling excitement for That Day when we would stand up there with Our Person. Because it wasn't going to be Chuck Bobuck. Or Mr. Smallbanana. Or Billy Bosucky. Nope. Because we had broken up with all of those wanksters. And in their spot would be someone amazing. Talk about peace of mind, yo.

When you find your lobster, you just know. Jude knew. And now she is going to forever be Mrs. Lobster. And everyone who knows them- separately or together just knew and just knows. So much easier to see how perfect they are together then to know which dish soap to buy. Oh, life!

Love you both so much. Let's celebrate you all week.
