Where I Turn When I Need a Good Laugh
I have a philosophy that I can't go to bed until I've had a good laugh (well...that or a Xanax.) I used to watch M*A*S*H reruns every night before I went to bed but if it's not on I watch "Family Guy" or read "The Onion." I also love to read "People I'd Like To Punch In The Throat."

It could be her need to walk on her hands everywhere (seriously...walk ON her hands!) or it could be that she has to kiss each of my shoulders before she goes to bed. Maybe it's her collection of tiny lanyard clippings...
