Sing Blue Silver

If ten years ago you told me I would have to reschedule getting my floors refinished so that I could fly to Los Angeles to go to a Duran Duran concert I would have asked you to pass what you were smoking. Yet, here I am, waiting for my sandless refinishing guy to call me […]


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 […]

The One Where I Send You Away (but only for a second)

I don’t mean to brag, but I have assembled a team of the funniest freaking sports bloggers over at Draft Day Suit and I am as proud as I can be. Even if you don’t like sports, this site will crack you up. Please do yourself (and me) a favor and go check it out.

Agriculture is Science, Right?

My friend Susan, you might know her as WhyMommy, is having surgery this morning. She is having six tumors removed from her body as part of her ongoing battle with cancer. My other friend Jean, you might know her as Stimey, had a fabulous idea. We all want to support Susan, but we don’t want […]

Cool Kids

This morning my five year old son told me that he needed to take his lunch to school in a shopping bag instead of the $30 Bakugan lunch thing I bought for him because that is what all of the “cool kids” were doing. Then he said that he knew he was a cool kid […]

It’s a Small World Wide Web After All

I’m not that great of a cook, but I like food. Gabe does most of the quality cooking in this joint, but I try to do at least half of the cooking. This is why I was on the internet trying to figure out how to hard boil an egg. I mean, yes, I know […]

Back Door Friend

I’ve been known to drink a beer or two (or eight) every now and then.* I love beer and I love wine. I even love some mixed drinks, but they don’t so much love me. This is not my point. What I was going to say is that I come by it honestly. My mother’s […]

Not Crazy? Then Explain This.

I have a friend that I have known for twenty years.  Really, we met in 10th grade. Okay, I don’t really want to talk about the fact that 10th grade was actually 20 years ago, but what I do want to talk about it this – Lori is pregnant with her first child.  I am […]

Facebook and Twitter are Blurring All the Lines

Once upon a time I had friends from high school and friends from college. Then I had high school friends and college friends and work friends. Then I had high school friends, college friends, work friends, neighborhood friends, friends from the twins club and eventually blog friends. You get the picture. Sometimes we would have […]

Quick Favor

Today is the Greatest

I have a one day turnaround. Yesterday I got home from Albuquerque and tomorrow I leave for Hot Springs. Today consists of doing laundry and trying to procure a broadband card so that I can do my job while on the road. I also had library books to return (the library is becoming like the […]

Today on Today

How great is it to turn on The Today Show* and see your friends on there? Kristen, Jill, Mir and Heather all did great jobs. I enjoyed the segment even if Kathie Lee Gifford is pretty much a tool and obviously hasn’t spent much time reading blogs. Did she actually say she was afraid of […]
