I’m back . . . and I have absolutely nothing to report. No alien baby, no ginormous lottery win. Sigh – such a letdown, I know. Err, at least regarding the lottery. At the end of April I went to a local writers conference. I’m an extrovert by nature, but it was definitely somewhat nerve-racking to … More Dating and Other Dilemmas
Have I mentioned these two monstrous beasts of late? Well, never fear – they’re still the loves of my life and the center of my universe, so all is right with the . . . err, nope. Can’t use that phrase anymore, can we? In any case, despite the world getting crazier by the minute, … More Speaking of National Pet Day . . .
I’ll admit I’m a bit of a quirky character; always have been, always will be. And, that’s really working out well for me, because all of a sudden, it’s totally cool to be a weirdo. Who knew, right!? I spent three months this winter looking for the perfect glasses frames. THREE MONTHS. I visited a … More Here’s Looking At You, Four-Eyes
A week ago I finally dragged myself in for a long overdue doctor’s appointment to figure out why I’ve been having a lot of hip and shoulder pain during and after yoga. Hobble-around-for-days-like-a-crippled-old-woman level pain, in case you were wondering. For months I’d been envisioning the worst, like them telling me I had deformities that would … More No Pain, No Gain
So, stating the obvious, I’ve yet to get a blog post up this month. I’ve been trying to focus my free time on finishing up my manuscript, which (both conveniently and terrifyingly) seems super relevant since the election. After all, what once seemed implausible, at best, in overall concept, now seems downright probable. And, in short order, nonetheless. … More Mother F*cking Girl Power
Well, there we have it – reports of evidence that our election was hijacked (in spectacular and yet-to-be-fully-disclosed fashion) by a foreign dictator. It’s not exactly unexpected, but what is stunning is the total lack of concern by so many *ahem* patriots. Don’t worry though. Presumably it’s just that their patriotism mandates supporting a FOREIGN DICTATOR’S STOOGE over *gasp* A … More Unpresidented
There really is no way to begin this post other than to acknowledge that I’ve been off the grid since the day my country voted that man into office. You know the one I’m referring to. Since then it’s been an exhausting roller coaster of emotions each day – shock, horror, fury, confusion, helplessness. After … More The Dilemma
Today, I’m taking a certain orange political candidate’s lead, and proposing some extensive changes to our nation. For starters, Tuesday will no longer be just Election Day. Instead, we’re going to tack on a few applicable holidays from the previous weeks so we can celebrate them all while only sacrificing one frickin’ day in their honor. That’s … More I’m Combining All The Holidays!
Well, it’s National Cat Day again today. Big surprise there. And, in honor of that, I’m posting a status update about the leadership structure in this house. As you’ve probably guessed, I’m still at the bottom of the org chart. In fact, it’s so bad, I think I now rank below those corrugated cardboard cat … More National Cat Day. Again.
Sigh. I tried to stay above the fray, I really did. But, SOME people just won’t leave you be to enjoy your happy, reasonable place. This week I made the mistake of asking an innocuous question at the office, and got treated to a rant lasting several minutes as a result. Why are people such assholes … More But, I Was Doing So Well!
