PROMPTuesday #156: The Easiest PROMPTuesday Ever in EverEverLand

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Tonight I plan to take my friend out for her birthday, a feat that is amazing considering the scheduling back-and-forths of five other people. Because see, my friend’s birthday was last Monday. Last LAST Monday. But what matters is that we finally did it! God stars sprinkle from the heavens! At any rate, we will […]

Look What I Found!

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

My youngest is going to kindergarten in the Fall, and I’ve been lamenting the slick passage of time that slips by without a sound. Then I came across this:   “MaaaaaaMaaaaaaaaa!” Booger wailed it from her crib this morning. I prayed, as I pulled the covers over my ears. Sometimes, she’s a one-hit morning shouter […]

PROMPTuesday #155: Former Life

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

In this day and age of Facebook, I thought I’d ask a possibly relevant question:   Have you ever received a letter/email/friend request from a former lover? (This can be fictionalized)   Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.   […]

Weird Celeb Encounter, The End

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Part One Here   Despite the self-importance of the guys who approached Carolyn and I, the tallest looked like a hobo. Long curly hair twisted and fell into his decidedly past-40 eyes, sandals encased his feet, and a rumpled t-shirt and baggy shorts completed the shabby shab look. His pal looked just like Teller, and […]

Weird Celeb Encounter

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

When I first lived in Los Angeles during the early ’90s, my colleague Carolyn and I often met after work for a drink. We usually convened at a bistro-type joint on Ventura Blvd. in Woodland Hills, a mecca it turned out for celebs looking for a casual, anonymous dinner. As such, the two of us […]

Storyteller, Again

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

I’m posting this again! Because it’s still pertinent! And because my brain is still rumbling over the words to describe my celebrity encounter, which is coming next…     She runs inside to where I am at the sink, washing the endless dishes. I hear her fling her shoes off and soon she’s before me […]

PROMPTuesday #154: Celebrity Encounter

Monday, May 16th, 2011

Pretty self-explanatory, right? My new pal Surfer Wife writes these celeb encounters so deliciously you ask for extra blueberry syrup on her outrageous prose pancake.   That didn’t sound proper in the least.   As for me, I lived in Los Angeles for several years and you better believe I got some stories. Coming soon, […]

Rise Again: A Bit of a Primer for a Depression Lift

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

YEP. Yep, yep, yep. I’m having a hard time. A very hard time. I can’t put it any more plain than that. Or more eloquently. It hasn’t been easy this year, and certain events and circumstances triggered some lowness in me. So. I am posting something I received from my brother today. If anyone is […]

Emerge From the Mist

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

{This is my PROMPTuesday post.}   Gut laughs come rarely these days. Those hold-your-stomach, ache-y-in-a-good-way, from-the-soul laughs that used to be so common when we both had perms and ate candy corn for breakfast.   You made me laugh in that rollicking, raw way. Day after day, minute to minute, we riffed on each other’s […]

PROMPTuesday #153: Drifter

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

I still need to post my PROMPTuesday submissions for the last two weeks (prompts: “hoarder” and “road trip“), but in the meantime? Today’s PROMPTuesday is:   Is there someone in your life you let go who you wish you could reconnect with today?   Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your […]

This Smells.

A chocolate foot massage. There really is no more to say. (For San Diegans only)

My Chiropractic Experience, Part II

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

  I don’t even like looking at this picture.   Part I is here.   The next step in my journey toward battling my fear of chiropractors and their bone-cracking infernal ways happened when I attended a tweet-up last month. A get-together of San Diego tweeters, a tweet-up is a pretty regular occurrence in this […]

An Unlikely Encounter: How Chiropractic Care Did Not Kill Me

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

  These give my soul heart attacks and make babies cry more than they already do.   If you know me at all, you’re well aware that my fears are legend and legion. I’m scared of planes, spiders, medicine, cancer, blood, needles, doctors, public speaking, alopecia, and those swim socks that make your feet look […]

PROMPTuesday #152: One Word Again

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

I’ve posted the “one word” prompts before, but I think they can be very helpful trigger words to spur stories or posts. So today? The one word is:   HOARDER.   Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.   First […]


Monday, May 2nd, 2011

  I’m going to be honest. I’ve been boiling in a pit of bitter acid for the better part of this year. Waking up in the middle of the night, feeling sorry for myself, comparing my life to others, lamenting my lack of “success,” roiling around in why them and not me, and all that […]
