Have you read The Book Thief yet? I really want you to. First of all, it’s epic. Second of all, it’s told from Death’s point of view. Third of all, it’s historical fiction set during the Holocaust. Fourthly, the writing is unique and raw. Also charming, just not in the expected places. Fifth and [...]
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.

Here we go! This week, use the below in your first paragraph somewhere: “You’re not going to win you know.” She couldn’t look at him when she said it. “Maybe not. But I take heart in knowing that neither one of us will be the same when it’s all over.” He pushed the [...]
FYI! I’m amending my PR policies, the ones that exist solely in my head and often change without due notice, as follows. I will engage in a PR relationship with a PR person in a PR-y way if: 1) There is cheese. 2) The product/service reminds me of when I was young [...]
So the swine flu. I’ve observed for myself and heard from other moms that in many cases, pediatricians are not testing for H1N1 in their patients with flu symptoms. When Toots went to the doctor last Monday with fever and arguable fluey stuff going on, my pediatrician, whom I respect and trust, told [...]
…As Etsy sees it.
Toasted Cheese’s fall edition. So much greatness here.
I can’t get enough of this song.
Toots’s cure for the flu. It’s important that the green cylinder be placed ONLY on the left foot, second piggy from the big toe. Also, the plastic eyeball MUST be affixed firmly to the left shin. Not the knee. The shin. Furthermore, be sure to use only pink and orange Bendaroos for the criss-cross. [...]
…Find out that it’s “probably” NOT the swine flu as the pediatrician initially speculated. Learn that it’s “probably” just a virus. Dedicate rest of life to the abolition of the word “probably.” As a secondary life mission, decide to insist on stuff like swine flu tests because assertive people have more peace of mind. [...]
So today my pediatrician says, “Influenza,” and I say, “Are you thinking H1N1?” and he says, “I AM thinking H1N1 because it is the only strain out there right now,” and I say, “But H1N1 isn’t supposed to be real…it’s supposed to be a construct of my imagination that slowly drives me insane until April,” [...]
First she asks how Johnny Appleseed died, then Christopher Columbus. Eager to encourage her learning, even if it is morbid, we look up the details. Appleseed gave in to pneumonia at age 72; Columbus suffered a heart attack at 55. She’s not satisfied. What is pneumonia, she inquires. How does a heart ‘attack’ you? [...]

As a blogger you all look up to for travel tips and theme park reviews, I thought I’d take this time to outline a few “Do’s and Don’ts” for Disneyland. Also, since I visited both California Adventure and Disneyland last weekend, I feel I am eminently qualified to offer my opinions on how you [...]
If you live in San Diego and want to hang out while raising money for breast cancer research, won’t you consider joining me here? Let me know if you will be there, so I can look for your boobs.
It’s story time! Today’s PROMPT is: A new maid comes to your home to clean, and as you’re about to leave to run an errand, you find her to say you’ll be right back, but instead of dusting, you see her in your bathroom rifling through your medicine cabinet. Tell the rest of [...]
