I'm a kid who never thought she'd be married or a mom.
Now I'm both.
And that's just fine with me.

PROMPTuesday #24: The One-Liner

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Excellent writer and super cool blogger, Tap Dancing on the Edge of Reason, provided me with her son’s writing prompt, which I think will work just fine for this PROMPTuesday. Just fine indeed.   It is:   “You are in a corn field, with your dog, when all of a sudden, a plastic…”   Imagine [...]



Baby, Come Back!

Monday, September 29th, 2008

Hi.   Yeah, I know it’s been awhile. I’ve been busy.   It’s not you, it’s me.   I just needed some time.   Time to ponder why I voluntarily agreed to get on a plane in two weeks when everyone knows I’m terrified to fly and I can’t sleep, concentrate, focus, talk normally, or [...]



Angel Gills

  Breaking news bulletin (that I’m just getting around to posting):   Shimmer the Bulimic Fish passed away (last week). Currently, the San Diego Mommasons are pondering life, death, and whether Fish Heaven is an ocean or just a giant fishbowl (which would suck enormous tasteless fish flakes for Shimmer the Bulimic Fish).   There’s [...]



PROMPTuesday #23: TV Pilot

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

I saw a pretty funny movie on Showtime this weekend. TV Set. Have you seen it? It’s not the best thing since a burn-free face, but it IS a delightful, fluffy romp. It’s about a writer whose TV pilot script is “revamped” and “restructured” by television producers who don’t know what they’re doing. In short, [...]



Getting Over Myself, UPDATED

Friday, September 19th, 2008

  UPDATED TO ADD: I am working on ordering you all roses and a chocolate fountain, but meanwhile, thanks for your kind comments and general awesomeness.   As is my way, I’m suffering a blogging crisis. I’ve been evaluating and reviewing and comparing and ACK! I hate when I do that.   Anyway, I was [...]



PROMPTuesday #22: Writing Poetry

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Today, write a poem including the following lines in any order:   “I tie a ribbon in a foolish way”   “The delicious fragility of this travesty”   “Where we still laugh and wish” (Prompt courtesy of CreativeWritingPrompts)   Go for it! And really, you’re all so good, I don’t want to hear any about [...]



Weekending

Monday, September 15th, 2008

The thing about burning your face off is…….that you’ve burned your face off. So, you’re not as likely to go in public and show your melting nose and chin to the neighborhood. (Although I WILL say around these SoCal parts, I’ve seen much worse.) As such, I stayed in my house all weekend, wearing old [...]



I Can Always Get a New Face, Right? (UPDATED)

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Today I’m having my face burned off.   I’ve often heard that when you’re 40, you must decide between your face or your ass. So I’ve decided to take the face out of the equation to give my ass a fighting chance.   I’ll post the before picture this afternoon.   p.s. Although I probably [...]



Character Sketch (Aka a Real Post is Coming Soon)

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

I did this one awhile ago…   First, she introduced us to the man on her porch. Resembling an Orthodox Jew with his black hat, and beard — also black — he shuffled away in knee-high sports socks and Adidas gym shoes. Next, she welcomed us into her faded apartment. Two fat cats scurried out [...]



Moonglows and Fairy Drops

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

“The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.” –Eden Phillpotts   *************************************************************************************   “Mommy, is Peter Pan real?”   Toots asks me a question like that every day. And used to be, I floundered with my answer. Of course, I want to tell her “yes,” unequivocally, indubably, resoundingly [...]



PROMPTuesday #21: Tell Us A Story

Monday, September 8th, 2008

He’d fallen asleep at the wheel. Must’ve been just a second or two, because his truck never strayed from its straight course. Then again, since he crossed into Wyoming’s Great Plains, he’d been going straight. He shrugged his shoulders, squinted at the road, and stuck his left ear out the window as far as it’d [...]



Carry On

Sunday, September 7th, 2008

My apologies. I’ve been out to lunch. I haven’t commented, twitted, read, socialized, met up, schemeezled or schemozled for days going on days. Can I just say? So. Much. Work. My fingers have been glued to this keyboard — and not in the good way — for weeks now.   Thanks for still coming by [...]



The Tapas Post

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

  I have an eccentric friend. You know the ones? They’re so delightfully weird, that you just could listen to them for hours. I haven’t talked to my friend for awhile now, we’ve been so busy, we live 150 miles from each other, and general life gets in the way.   We spoke for the [...]



PROMPTuesday #20: Memory Description

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Today marks back-to-school time, and when I was a kid, I loved this time of year. It’s why I adore autumn. All summer, I anticipated the week before school, when I’d hurry out to buy my school supplies, stick pennies in my loafers, and carefully cover my textbooks.   But I was a geek.   [...]



A Singular Sensation

Monday, September 1st, 2008

In my other life, I was a Broadway star. And I’m pretty sure I loved it. Maybe I met my end when an overzealous Charleston kick took me off stage into the orchestra pit. Or perhaps an ill-mounted light fell on my head. Either way, I didn’t get off that stage willingly. In fact, I [...]
