PROMPTuesday #88: Cheeky Monkey

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Was it something I said? Maybe the intestinal reference?   No matter. Here is today’s PROMPTuesday…late and unshowered. For two days.   So it seems appropriate to talk about monkeys.   Today’s PROMPT is: What is the monkey on your back?   Maybe it’s a monkey you’d like to push off for the New Year. […]

Here’s to the Holiday

Friday, December 25th, 2009

Merry Christmas everyone!   It’s very pink over here. Also, I decided to go off my brain medication.( Well, not “decided” really as much as “forgot to take for 5 days.”)   Whooo! Let the holiday glee commence!   On a serious note, thanks for being my friends and readers.   Now if you’ll excuse […]

List of Amazing Awesomeness

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

If I were a rich girl, na na na na na na na na na na na na na na NA:   THIS would be my fashion Christmas to-do list. (After I donated to charities, funded a peacekeeping mission to every war-torn country in the world, and cured cancer.)

Here’s what’s happening lately:   I’ve been crafting all my blog entries in my mind at around, oh, 3:30AM. This morning was a real hamdoozle of a post about the media’s role in shaping public perception, and that the media needs to be mindful of that great responsibility and not continue to F it up […]

Encouraging Charity Giving this Year?

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

This site lets you personalize online cards with logos and links to your favorite charity. Kinda makes altruistic giving easier. (Which is all good in my book.)

PROMPTuesday #86: In The Name of Love

Monday, December 14th, 2009

What’s the grossest thing you ever did for somebody because you loved him/her/it?*   *Inspired by this weekend’s toenail-cutting adventure. Toenail cuttee will remain anonymous to protect my innocent dad.   Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.   First […]

More on the Spirit

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

  I thought to come back and write more about things that uplift me, happy things that don’t involve death and ectoplasmic soda pop. As such, I’m going to list some of my uplifters here. A few I’ve referenced before, so I suppose this could be a compendium of those songs, foods, etc. that are […]

Homemade Things Lover?

Here’s a holiday boutique for you!  

You Can Vote for Me. (Or Not.)

Monday, December 7th, 2009

Remember that essential oil/holiday/zen party I was preparing for as part of the Corner Bakery catering challenge? Well, my decorated table turned out like this. Now you can vote for the best display. But let’s be honest: it’s not mine. So go ahead and vote for the best, you total traitorous harpies.   P.S. I […]

PROMPTuesday #85: What Moves You

Monday, December 7th, 2009

I’m having a hard time feeling the holidays this season. It’s bothering me, all this groping for meaning and coming up empty. So…would you share something that’s moved you recently? Or a spiritually uplifting moment you’ve experienced? Where were you? What happened?   I would love to know. I think it could spark something in […]

More Peggy Bundy, Less Rachel Ray

Saturday, December 5th, 2009

You remember how I balked at moving to the suburbs, right? Well, looks like I’m seeing more social action here than I have anywhere else I’ve ever lived at any other time in my entire life, with the exception of a raucous sophomore year in college. Seems lots of moms are itching for connection and […]

Holiday Meal Giveaway

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

  Just a representative example of what my Christmas dinner will not look like. But just for fun, let’s mentally re-arrange it to look San Diego Mommish. All right. Take away the turkey, gravy, and cranberry sauce; knock over a Christmas candle, and place the wine in the center of the table. There you go. […]
