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...

Food for Thought

Back to back posts. WHOA! So unpredictable lately. In news that is going to make you want to punch me in the face with a bucket, I just realized that Tom from Succession is also Mr. Darcy and I'm still sweeping up the pieces of my mind because HUH?! And I am very aware I'm... 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 →

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 →

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 →

Cancelled

I have heard more thunder in LA in the last 24 hours than all my years living here combined and I've never felt more alive. I love a storm. There's something magical about it - like the universe has let out a sigh. It's a weather cuddle really - which is all I've ever wanted.... Continue Reading →

Boop!

I still don't know what "hedge funds" are or wtf a bitcoin is but I do know if you aren't buying wine from Ralph's/Kroger by the 6-pack, you're doing it wrong. I paid $66 for what should have been over $200 of wine and bubbles. Even the cashier went 'SHIT!' after he saw the total.... 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...

Revival

It's Sundurday Octember eleventy-five in the year of the 12th circle of hell. Please direct me to where I can submit my resignation. I've been on this ride for almost 10 months - I have vertigo, dejavu, symptoms of mild depression, characteristics of a sloth and what some might call an (insert air quotes here)...
