  • An interview from my pillow fort

    By Karen McBoob on January 23, 2017
    As it turns out, one of my twitter friends is a features editor for a newspaper, and she asked me if I’d be willing to be interviewed about my book. My first thoughts were, “Well, that sounds horrifying!” and “Does she expect to talk to me on the phone? ‘Cause I’d rather be mauled by that bear in The Revenant […]
  • Donald Trump: 17 Very Specific Things Wrong with You

    By Karen McBoob on September 29, 2016
    Guest Post by Chuck Baudelaire Greetings, fans of Karen McBoob! I count myself among you. Which is weird, since none of you are actually among me. Unless you’re really good at hiding, in which case, stop it, you’re freaking me the hell out. Thank you. Ms. Boob asked me to write a guest post. And I said YES because I […]
  • Should I do genetics testing or just start obsessively worrying on my own?

    By Karen McBoob on January 9, 2016
    Alternate title: Can thinking about genetics testing give you a brain tumor? Per my breast surgeon’s recommendation, I went to see a genetics counselor. So, the main thing I learned about genetics testing is that I don’t want to do genetics testing. The counselor recommended two panels of tests. The first was for the BRCA gene mutation that is linked […]
  • I love Star Trek, but I’m not weird about it

    By Karen McBoob on September 30, 2015
    So I was over on one of my favorite blogs today: Always-Drunk and Chuck Baudelaire was talking about being in the process of moving and getting new (faster) internet at her new digs. (Please go check out her site. She’s hilarious.) Her latest post reminded me of our first house, where we had AOL dial-up. Yep. We’re old. I’m only a few […]

    DISCLAIMER: This post contains revolting images/videos that you’ll wish could be unseen.  All therapy costs incurred as a result of viewing this material will not be the responsibility of the author.

  • Shitty Adventures in Cooking – Pineapple What the Fuck Cake

    By Karen McBoob on July 25, 2015
    So I tried (failed) to bake a Pineapple Upside Down Cake the other day.     At the end of the baking time, I did the old ‘stick-a-toothpick-in-the-middle test’ before I took it out. I did this not because I’m a baking savant, who knew about the magical qualities of toothpicks and their ability to discern exactly when a cake […]
  • The Ice Box Challenge

    By Karen McBoob on June 24, 2015
    So about a year ago my Aunt, who lives in Scotland, sent me a video of my cousin Ben and his two older boys doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I showed the video to Lola to see if she could understand what the fuck they were saying (gerdamned Scots bootcherin’ the Queen’s Anglish). She said, “I’m not sure what they were saying, […]
  • Another Spring, Another Murder

    By Karen McBoob on June 22, 2015
    It happens every year. Every spring to be exact. I’ve started referring to it as the killing season. (Well, this is the first time I’ve referred to it as the killing season, so starting now, Spring shall be called “The Killing Season”). It’s always a time of carnage, when innocents are slain, and dead bodies pile up. I wish it […]

    Should I worry about this?

    By Karen McBoob on May 21, 2015
    I get these tiny blisters on the sides of my fingers, but only when I worry. Should I be worried? I asked Google, but I couldn’t find any answers that seemed to pertain to me. Oddly, Google responded with a lot of irrelevant articles about cold sores and STDs, and some very frightening pictures under an image search for “worry blisters on my […]
