Year of the Tiger

According the the Chinese lunar cycle, the year of the water tiger, which happens once every 60 years, started on February 1. The water tiger symbolizes strength, clearing away evil and bravery. It also signifies new beginnings and I will go ahead and speak for everyone when I say YES PLEASE. Let's shake this etch-a-sketch... Continue Reading →

Go to Bed

Amy on Jeopardy! lost and I hate it. I didn't want it to end. I think that's how I feel about most amazing things and phenomenons. Vacations, bowls of mac and cheese, celebrations, good make-outs, winning streaks, the Olympics, being on a boat surrounded by dolphins - please never end. It never fails to amaze...

it takes a village

For the amount of times I use the phrase 'I can't wait to tell my grandkids', you'd think I'd have several children. Alas, I don't even have a date lined up. And I waver between being the most okay with it and utterly bored about it. At this point, if he shows up I'm just... 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 →

Love & Happy-ness

Still not really sure how it's July or 2021 or Thursday or anything anymore. I need a time machine and a basket of champagne. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know celebrating America can be divisive but I like to think of it as a celebration of our rebellion against the authority, splitting... 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 →

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Ahoy there! Well it happened - I bought two shirts THAT AREN'T BLACK!!! Insert confetti and prizes here. I also bought the same shirt in three different colors, so there's that as well. I like what I like. I don't think I'm ever going to be remembered for my fashion choices. I contemplated buying biker... Continue Reading →

inward

I woke up this morning to a Taco Bell fiesta pack at my door that I didn't order. So that was an interesting way to start the day. In other random news, a woman in Ohio was arrested for beating someone with a 10 pound beef log. My friend posted a video of his neighbor... 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 →
