In America: A Lexicon

Well, I just covered up in a towel so a dog wouldn't have to look at me, so that's where I'm at with that. I think I watched too many 90s sitcoms which have given me the complex that they have thoughts and platforms. Basically I didn't want to be judged by an animal and... Continue Reading →

Bronze

Oh hello on a Friday. I'm 38 now. I do what I want. Due to health concerns, family ruckus and obligatory Olympic dedication, I decided to take last week off. If the energy of the last blog I posted was any indication, I think it was best for all of us. In fact, you're welcome.... Continue Reading →

%&#@*!

Being sick and an adult is an ugly scene. I think I'm all grown up and with the snap of a finger I become the whiniest, neediest human this side of Oklahoma. Odd state choice on my part but I'm too tired to come up with something else. Yup, it's gonna be that kind of... Continue Reading →

LFG

I got my apps all downloaded. I got my devices amped and ready. I've been following the torch. Bring on the Olympics. I'll be living on Tokyo time and it looks like I won't be sleeping for 14 days. Totally worth it. Can't wait. I told my brother's fiancé she's lucky her shower doesn't overlap... Continue Reading →

Domestic

Took a tiny siesta to go back to the midwest in the middle of cicada season. Love is love, am I right? I did yard work for the first time in my 37 years and I gotta tell you - domestic life is not for me. And this isn't because I'm dainty or that I... Continue Reading →

Complications

This week's headlines were flooded with the news that Prince Harry used drugs and alcohol to cope with his mother's death. Gasp! Are we that desperate for news from the Royals? Most people use drugs and alcohol to get through a Tuesday so I'm failing to to comprehend the shock and awe. I'd be more... Continue Reading →

unkindness

Hi, I'd like one ticket to Normal-land and a bottomless strawberry margarita...and a cupcake. Everyone through with their panic purchasing? You all set with your Burger King cup of gasoline, Gary? Did you store it on top of your TP I'm sure you still have stockpiled in the closet from a year ago that you... Continue Reading →

Looking Out

Holy shit. Everyone stop what you're doing. Gwyneth Paltrow ate bread ladies and gentlemen. That was her lockdown low. If that's her idea of "going off the rails", I imagine she would consider my life a tragedy on an Oedipus scale. Is she for real? There was a day I ordered breakfast, lunch and dinner...

storyteller

You know how you see things on TV or in the movies and you're like - how stupid are you? Flashback to this weekend when I text someone, 'Houston, there no tp in here SOS!' to which the response was, 'You're in Houston?' And this is when I realized I had text the wrong person.... Continue Reading →

take my breath away

My biggest love affair to date has been with the outdoors. Still managing to take my breath away all these years later. This picture makes me so happy. I saw it at a nature preserve in North Carolina and I stood staring at it for ages. It's beautiful...the way the light finds its way through... Continue Reading →
