I turn 50 a week from today and as a surprise from my coworkers, I received a beautiful and tasty garden of Domo Chocolate Cake Pops!

This is the most delicious birthday gift I’ve ever gotten.

So happy right now.

Murder Most Fuzzy

I’ve been watching a little too much “Columbo” lately. Also I’m obsessed with Steven Bochco’s latest series “Murder in the First.”

As a result, my mind has been fixated on murder — namely the concept of The Perfect Murder. Why? I’ve been toying with the idea of writing either a script or novel.

I think The Perfect Murder could be possible if:

  • There was no connection between the killer and the victim
  • The victim was a person whose death wouldn’t be investigated very thoroughly (homeless guy, junkie, gang member)
  • No serial murders. Just one victim. Then stop. Forever.

Unfortunately, Perfect Murder, like anything else perfect, is fucking boring.

So now, I’m back to square one. And the question I’m bouncing around in my head is, “Is it possible for a killer to murder someone he knows and get away with it?”

I got so fed up with my 15-year-old piece of crap GrandAm, that Friday morning before work, I went out and bought a brand new car.

The new Fuzzymobile™ is a 2014 Fiat 500 Pop. All the Cool Kids know that I adore Tiny Cars. And now I finally own one.
