Let me set the stage. I am an HIV social worker in an inner-city hospital. I am about to spend a terrible morning explaining kaposi's sarcoma to an intellectually delayed patient. I begged God for something to lighten my heart. Theeeen I read the Home Depot story. And now I have to figure out how to stop laughing before I go talk to the poor man. Best thing I've heard in months. Thanks for making a tired old social worker giggle incessantly.


I don't know MD. Ever since the divorce, I cannot read this blog the same way I used to. I feel like your entries with BL were just too fake full of media manipulation.

One reason why I loved this blog was because it was honest and truthful.

It would be far more disconcerting to know that 40 year olds would lose their sense of humor just because they turned 40. Then I would be counting the precious years left of my 30s with bated breath.

I would love to play the non sequitur game. However, I actually say things that sound like non sequiturs but are actually responses/comments relating to a conversation that happened like 20 minutes ago.

And dude, you make me feel like a slacker. Take a nap already!!


Well, no more reading your fabulous posts during office hours. I've now confused the hell out of my co-workers by laughing out loud at your friends texts and then (5 seconds later) shedding more than a few years reading about Peanut asking for a hug. Excuse me, I need to go call my Dad now.
A sincere thank you, MD, for the laughs and the tears.


"Chaos Theory: August 2009" was perfect! Great read. Had a little bit of everything.

Hope the new school for your daughter, work, custody schedule, therapy, and the Meet & Greet all go as smoothly as possible. You're doing great.


I can't believe I get to read this for free. Absolute genius. And one funny mofo to boot.


Re Sap - Peanut is confused by your response because she knows the correct answer is "bacon".


Dude, bring your own vodka to the mixer. Like you, I am a very social person, love to hang out friends, cook, drink, enjoy each other's company. I also find the mixers soul-sucking. Wait until you have to take her to the soul-sucking, loud b-day parties. Oy. My daughter also goes to a private school and I am one of the 3 moms in the class who does not drop off the kid in high heels and designer clothes and some giant SUV. And of the few who work.

You are brilliant as always.

When/If I find myself in Whole Foods somewhere in your neck of the woods and see someone texting, I will have to assume he/she is a friend of yours.


You're working on the pilot! Remember, no daddy's a dumbass shit. Dying to know if TV Metrodad is Korean.

I have been lucky, there were some interesting parents in the twinbabies classes. But boy, I still am figuring out the whole school parent thing. Hhmm, fodder for show?

Finally, aren't we lucky we get to tell our girls that we fully, without reservation or embarrasment, LOVE them. Can you even imagine your relationship without that?
F'in lucky.
Jesus take the wheel, Yo!!!!

Just discovered your blog earlier this year. I was really close to my dad before my parents divorced. Reading your blog makes me miss him.



As always, it is a pleasure to read your blog. A full range of emotions bubble up almost every time I come here.

Happy memories, sad memories, insane laughter, and the need to educate myself on a new word of the day (since it always seems that your posts contain a word or two that I've never seen before!)

Good luck getting through the next few months. We'll all be anxiously awaiting the new stories of "MD & The P"...


You made me laugh all along the post until the last bit which made me cry. You rock! It's a good thing I'm alone in the office right now.


MD. As much as you (and I) dislike the whole school parent thing you are doing your daughter a TREMENDOUS disservice by not going the extra effort to befriend them. These will be the parents of your daughters closest friends and if you can't get close to some of them you won't be able to arrange playdates with HER friends (as opposed to yours). You'll end up just like your own dad.

Lols! great blog! I really liked the "first pay check" story. =)

baby bows

In my childhood, I cannot recall any conversation with my father like that. It was always with my mother. Good job dad! Your daughter will love and adore you for as long as she can.


Ooo! Metrodad! Bend over so that I can kiss your ass! You're just that awesome! People, get a fucking life! This guy is so full of himself, and who the fuck cares if he doesn't have a life and lives through his liitle shit kid just like most parents today???


Are you getting divorced? just wondering?


You are a magnificent man, MD. Your posts have been an inspiration and I always enjoy seeing life from your perspective. I do believe that ends are always followed by new beginnings. I hope all is well with you, the peanut, and bosslady. C'est la vie!


Tempting as it was to leave your comment count at 69, I wanted to say:

1. Sorry to hear about your marriage. Marriage is so hard.

2. I like your friends. Poor French girl....

3. A little bit envious that you have so much on the go. Oh, if I had the time, the things I would do that would make Dr. Seuss proud....

4. 5-year-old girl might need new friends. Funny!

5. Thoughts on parenting (especially Macgyvering): Lovely.

More than anything I'm lonkiog forward to being able to meander lazily about, instead of rushing to a set destination as quickly as possible wearing an obscene number of layers.Other random things: less laundry, eating outside, long bike rides, growing some flowers, open windows, running in shorts and a tank top (so free!), leaves on the trees! I spied some snowdrops in Central Park the other day and started screeching.My spring/summer plan is to get back into marathon shape and then run one! Winter was fraught with sickness and icy sidewalks and I've lost my ability to run 15 miles on a whim. So bummed oh well. Building back up slowly Come run the NYC marathon with me in November!

That's pretty scary, about the neertwltess not arriving the first two times, but I get more concerned about ID theft due to people stealing mail from my mailbox -- thus, I take my paid bills in to the post office. So far, they've all gotten to where they were intended to go. Your stories are interesting and your shots of the mailboxes and post office area are nicely done!

Well, this guy is probably spends too much time at computer making Mariah Carey sex movies this website and writing that post for us. I mean Jennifer Love Hewitt nude because that's what my website is all Shia Labeouf without underwear about. Anyhow, this is not about that because I have included this saying especially for you and thus, understanding it is now on your Angelina Jolie free nude scenes shoulders. I know she probably looks younger on some Rachel McAdams nude pics but more often this gorgeous and sexy cutie pie likes to wear some classic outfit Minka Kelly braless and thus she looks more solid and older. The picture with her ass exposed is now hanging on the door to my room in the appearance of poster Tyra Banks nip slip scene that I have made by myself. She Diane Kruger pussy is gorgeous, sexy and just look at Salma Hayek naked photos and be surprised. This is very honorable award and I think this should have only pushed her to continue Zac Efron without bikini surprising us because after having kids I don't see actions much. I am willing to Rose Mcgowan free nude scenes start this review with some data and then continue with some other nice illustrations of her. If you don't want to talk with Claire Forlani sex movie person that you don't like much then just give him a chance. It is very hard to watch all those Zooey Deschanel vagina photos of Julia Stiles nude and then not thinking about anything. it is Hayden Panettiere boobs way more than that as here you can find some very interesting information regarding this young and sexy lady. You are coming to Paris and you want to get some hot chick with you at the club Julia Roberts pussy video and then invite her to your hotel room. At school my boobs were bigger than all Emma Watson no underwear my friends' and I was hesitate to show them. But his is Amy Childs sex videos also some special place where anyone can become rich for one day.

Any one http://coach-mens-sale.lwvlosangeles.com/ Less expensive http://xn--eckl0a8c5k6bc0ev925ctcsf.avokdo.com/ Congrats to all of you who lost weight [url=http://coach-mens-sale.avokdo.com/]コーチ 財布 二つ折り[/url] so encouraging to [url=http://coach-womens-sale.avokdo.com/]コーチ キーケース レディース[/url] so encouraging to [url=http://coach-mens-sale.avokdo.com/]コーチ バッグ レザー[/url] interested

Anyway ladies possess a good week and I'll retain you informed! I hope all of you weigh in having a smile!!!!!

Hi every person,

Congrats to all of you who lost weight final week. It's so encouraging to read of one's [url=http://coach-sale-online.avokdo.com/]COACH 時計 メンズ[/url] successes and also to view that other individuals slide (been there, completed that!) after within a although and get back on track. I lost 2.5 lb as well. I wish I could say it was considering that http://coach-sale-online.avokdo.com/ I was soooo goood and exercised quite a bit but the truth is I was sick in bed and didn't eat [url=http://xn--eckl0a8c5k6bc0ev925ctcsf.avokdo.com/]COACH バッグ メンズ トート[/url] for any couple of days! I got back on track more than the weekend, eating better and exercising. I can't believe I am essentially saying this but I missed exercising!

Hi all! Nicely I believed I was performing genuinely nicely final weekexercised everyday and stayed within my calorie zone alsogot on the scale yesterday and . put on a half pound . Right after seeing that, I kinda blew it and ate about 500 calories greater than I should have. But at present is often a new day and I will stick with this. Just after a month of truly watching what I consume and working out, I have only lost three.eight pounds. Sort of discouraging, but I see others possess the identical experiencethis aids quite a bit, understanding that I'm [url=http://coach-womens-sale.lwvlosangeles.com/]コーチ アウトレット メンズ 店舗[/url] not alone in failures. I guess I truly shouldn't say failureI have lost weight. Okpositive outlookit would be worse if I did not loose something! Good luck every person

Hey can, I'm so glad you bounced, a lot superior [url=http://coach-mens-sale.lwvlosangeles.com/]コーチ バッグ 斜めがけ アウトレット[/url] feeling is not it? This entire organization would be a lot easier if we could just shut off our emotions http://coach-womens-sale.avokdo.com/ for the procedure! At the very least for me.

You realize, this sounds crazy, but I've http://coach-mens-sale.avokdo.com/ really had More chocolate due to the fact I started dieting! I have gone and bought myself an expensive wealthy dark chocolate bar and use it as a treat when I want a reward or even a choose me up. I break off 55 calories worth and it is actually remarkable how grand it is.

At first I had a bar from Christmas but since then I've [url=http://coach-mens-sale.lwvlosangeles.com/]COACH アウトレット 店舗[/url] so encouraging to [url=http://coach-womens-sale.lwvlosangeles.com/]コーチ 財布 レディース[/url] restocked with some genuinely fine stuff.

The issue is I threw away the wrapper of the latest, but I got it at planet market place and it had like 75% cacao.

I know one more superior one particular was See's particular dark chocolate. But I can't get those in my element in the nation, so I'll [url=http://coach-womens-sale.avokdo.com/]COACH リュック レザー[/url] must wait till [url=http://xn--eckl0a8c5k6bc0ev925ctcsf.avokdo.com/]コーチ キーケース メンズ[/url] June when I'll be back around the west coast for any pay a visit to.

Amen towards the parties challenge. a friend's 50th is FridayAND at a bar/restaurant! I'm doomed!! My program would be to [url=http://coach-mens-sale.avokdo.com/]COACH 時計 ベルト[/url] nurse one rum and diet coke for the entire stinking evening. sigh

Hiya do you keep in mind last [url=http://coach-womens-sale.avokdo.com/]コーチ アウトレット メンズ トート[/url] week I posted:

"I got to my GW a few years ago on a diet program (Rosemary Conley) that advocated 1200 cals each day when I was working out 3x a week and in a [url=http://xn--eckl0a8c5k6bc0ev925ctcsf.avokdo.com/]COACH バッグ メンズ トート[/url] moderately active job. I got down to my GW but located it not possible to maintain and I was cold and lethargic all of the time. Since coming to CC I've learnt that this really is classic sign of issues with my metabolism. Now I've about 14lbs to shed and I do not want to make precisely the same mistake again. I do cardio/weights 3x per week and I stroll two miles each day on 2 of the remaining days. I residence educate my daughter so whilst I'm not sitting on my behind all day I'm active albeit at dwelling. I chosen "light active" having received advice in the "Ask Mary" issue and in my initial week on 1500 cals a day lost 2lbs. I study someplace else (cannot trace the post now, just for the purpose!) somebody was saying you'll want to aim for 1lb a week for any healthier, sustainable weight loss. Do you consider 1500 cals every day is OK (I don't need to slow my metabolism down like last time) or is it too [url=http://coach-mens-sale.lwvlosangeles.com/]COACH アウトレット 店舗[/url] early to tell?"

Well, I weighed myself today (2nd week into the eating plan) and have stayed the exact same. Ought to I decrease my calories do you consider?

Amen to that canlose, that content [url=http://coach-womens-sale.lwvlosangeles.com/]コーチ 財布 レディース[/url] weight is waiting for us, and sooner, or not a lot later we'll be reaching it. I'm bogged down with TTOM I am moving up not down, makes no sense unless it can be water. grrr I'll under no circumstances forgive Eve for that stupid apple!

We've got a distraction here in our small town: Johnny Depp is in town to film a film. Every person is gaga. I plan on taking my class for a "walk" we'll go see a few of [url=http://coach-sale-online.avokdo.com/]コーチ 財布 新作 2013 レディース[/url] the filming. VM, do you consider I can justify that as becoming [url=http://coach-sale-online.avokdo.com/]コーチ 財布 新作 2013 レディース[/url] educational? At the very least it is http://coach-womens-sale.lwvlosangeles.com/ a thing apart from food and persistent like handles to think about !
