Compare/Contrast

I was a music minor in college. I majored in Political Science, but I hung out with a lot of music students. I mean no disrespect for my own, but the music majors were more interesting, and to be honest with myself I had to work a lot harder at my minor than I did [...]

People Are Strange

I rarely look at this kind of thing anymore but I was looking at keyword searches and I realized somebody had run across my humble site by searching “Sid Vicious fan fiction”. I’ll give you a moment to process that. So yeah, I thought I would look around and see what else was going on. [...]

Questions For You – Come On Get Happy

Ugh. Some of these Days of Truth are brutal. Let’s lighten the mood a bit. 1) Caption this Photo: 2) What song always makes you happy? 3) Name a movie that you admit is really stupid, but it makes you laugh anyway. 4) Who do you think will win the World Series? 4b) Do you [...]

Day 6: Something you hope you never have to do.

Something I hope I never have to do? That is easy. I never want to have to bury my child. I don’t think I could live through it. In fact, I think I would prefer to have my entire family outlive me. I don’t even like typing it here. It seems like tempting fate. I [...]

How I Know For Sure She Can Read

I could read before I started kindergarten and so could my brother. My husband read “The Shining” when he was in third grade. My mother-in-law reads about three books a week. My mother has a masters degree in library science and teaches adults how to read. It had started making me nervous that my first [...]

Day 5: Something I Hope to Do in My Life

Oh day 5, I like you. Something I hope to do in my life? That is not a scary writing prompt, and thank you for that. This will be a happy post as my goal is attainable. Maybe not easily attainable as I have to actually leave the country to do it. I assume it [...]

Randomness Part 134

- My favorite thing I wrote this week (that wasn’t here) involved Brett Favre and penis puppetry.  I called it Brett Favre’s Penis Gets a Job Offer. It is not to be missed. Not convinced yet? This picture is in it. – Oh! I also wrote something about athletes advertising tech products over on My [...]

Hey! Look Over There

Day 4: Something I Have to Forgive Someone For

Day 4 of the 30 Days of Truth is something I have to forgive someone else for. This is hard. It is hard for two reasons, the first being that I am not comfortable with this level of intimacy on my blog and the second being that I am not very forgiving. You see, this [...]

Day 3: Something I Have to Forgive Myself For

I’m not perfect. I can’t do everything. There, I said it. I don’t like it. I want to be able to do everything. I want to be everything for everybody. I want to be the best mother, wife, friend, neighbor, writer, salesperson, blog citizen, volunteer, singer, supporter of the arts that there is. I want [...]

What the Hell is Going on Here?

Look, maybe my cats are not seismologists but still, that doesn’t make this reasonable. I mean, honestly, what is up with that? Yes, my tweet was inane, but at least I didn’t photoshop a picture of a cat head on… who is that? Brett Favre? Tony Romo? A guy advertising clothes for The GAP? Twitter [...]

500,000

April 6, 2007 was a good day for me. It was the day my little old blog’s stat counter reached 100,000. I know because I posted about it. In just under two years 100,000 people had clicked on my site. I was pretty proud. Now, I know that some sites get that kind of traffic [...]
