Merry & Bright

'Hi' she says musically peeking from behind a corner with a mixture of mischief, apologies and trepidation. I know, I know - I ghosted you like a loser who snuck out the window in the middle of the night but is that a 2020 way to end the year or what? C'mon, you've let worse... Continue Reading →

Detained

A friend sent me a video of Christina Aguilera singing the part in Genie in a Bottle 'I feel like I've been locked up tight for a century of lonely nights' on repeat and I've never felt more heard. And if this isn't the cherry on top of the WHO MADE THIS AND WHAT THE... Continue Reading →

Unimaginable

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and yet this year continues to surprise me on a catastrophic level. Today I worked out with a handle of vodka and a magnum bottle of wine. When in Rome, right? Or Indy. Whatever. I tried watching Jeopardy! while working out and just some advice, don't. Not... Continue Reading →

Thanks

I don't know why I'm surprised every year I have to post on Thanksgiving. And yet, here I am, mystified beyond belief. While I have a very twisty relationship with the historical origins of this day, I can step back enough to appreciate the sentiment of being thankful. Personally, I have had some of my...

New Decade, Still Me

Coming to you live from 2020!  It's been a minute and I will explain everything.  This would have been posted earlier today but someone was learning how to use a drill all by herself.  I now have a train station-esque clock set to a permanent 5 o'clock which is ironic as I'm on day 3...

black hoodie magic

My sister asked me what I wanted for Christmas and the only thing I could come up with was a black hoodie.  Love me a black hoodie.  I wear mine at least 6 days a week.  It's the one consistent thing I do.  Grown-up Christmas lists are hard.  It really is true - you get... Continue Reading →

Make it Count

I am currently watching The Mistletoe Secret on the Hallmark channel and, truth be told, it should have stayed a secret.  Yikes.  And if I say that, that it must be really bad because I love romance more than you love your boyfriend.  I am a hooker for corny rom-coms but I vote NO to...

Pura Vida!

Well, I am back.  Regretfully and grudgingly.  I cried the entire way to the airport.  And then I watched Crazy Rich Asians on the plane and cried some more.  Coming back to reality has been very strange.  I am cold all the time.  I don't know what time or what day it is.  I actually...

Collision

Minus the times my brothers were active in the military my family has always been together for Christmas.  It's my favorite time of year.  These are my people, my tribe, my kin.  Who else is going to finish my mom's tequila and facetime every single person in my phone?  It's truly the best...for about 4...

Distractionz

I'm going to be one hundred with you.  I woke up this morning and not a single word was written for this week.  This is not typically my M.O.  I wish I could tell you I've been busy spending my nights as a vigilante, trying to make this world a better place, but I'm afraid... Continue Reading →
