Janna

I grew up in South Haven, Michigan. Gotta love the Lake Michigan shore — the lakeshore. I still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily. I moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College, fell in love with GR and have been here ever since! (Go Beer City, USA!)

I’m a big fan of crime TV, the ’90s (scrunchies! “Saved By the Bell!”), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really, really love it, OK?), reading  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

Schedule

M-Sa 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Su 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Bill Cosby 1969 Stand-Up Bit on Drugging Girls’ Drinks [Audio]

Hannibal Buress' stand-up routine in which he called Bill Cosby a rapist seems to have driven Cosby underground. Cosby has been cancelling appearances and had a really awkward interview on NPR in which he refused to speak when the line of questioning turned to sexual assault allegations.

Buress' stand-up is not the only one bringing attention to these allegations. A bit from Cosby's own stand-up routine from 1969 has surfaced about drugging girls' drinks.

Grand Rapids Will Fine You if You Don’t Clear Your Sidewalks

I'm not big on shoveling snow. Well, who is really? Anyone who says they love it is a liar. Just like people who say they "loooovvve" winter. Liars. Stop it.

Anyway. I don't even own a proper shovel. What do I do when snow piles up in my driveway? I attempt to drive over it. Or I get stuck. No, it's not a great system. But man, I really hate shoveling. Good thing I'm not a property owner then. Because in Grand Rapids they can  fine you if you don't shovel your sidewalks. I'd owe, like, so much money.
