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. [...]
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.

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 [...]
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.)
This is a companion piece to last year’s PROMPTuesday. Read the link first, then come back and give me what you got! (That’s what SHE said…) I shouldn’t eat more Christmas dessert My intestines are really starting to hurt Though eat it I shall I’m that kind of gal Butt sure ain’t pretty under [...]
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 [...]
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.)
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 [...]
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 [...]
Here’s a holiday boutique for you!
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 [...]
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 [...]
Maryann from Tic Tac Dough won the holiday meal from Golden Share Foods! I’m pretty sure she lives in my neck of the woods, too, so guess who’s coming by for ham?
The new single “We Fall” from former child soldier Emmanuel Jal is available for free download here. It’s lovely. Please pass this on or repost to help Emmanuel reach his goal of raising $250,000 and end his fast.
…Especially the leather cuffs.
If my mom were on Facebook, it would be a true Christmas miracle, but check this out anyway.
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 [...]
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. [...]
