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.

Fashion for the Clueless

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

I understand your confusion, but this is not me. (Photo from here)   Tonight I’m attending the Poppy Boutique grand opening with my friend, Morgan.   And the second I discovered we’d be going together, I emailed her and said, “Hey! You should style me in Poppy Boutique clothes! It’ll be real fun for you!” […]

Good Movies That Aren’t Blockbusters

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Re-posting this…because I want a good movie and I’m sick of all the usual suspects…   {After hearing from several people that they’ve seen these movies, I’m going to deny that I’m hopelessly out of touch and instead re-name this post to: Non-Blockbuster Movies That You Might Want to See Again, like Box of Moonlight.)

Helping the Help

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

I’ve recently been given a project that will take me 22 years to complete, minimum, and it’s due in two weeks. I took the workload on late last month, and according to my math-sucks-butt calculations, I would definitely be able to finish it all by the October 9 deadline. However, using my husband’s constantly-doing-math-in-his-head-JUST-FOR-FUN arithmetic, […]

This is for You Writers

Monday, September 19th, 2011

The Writer’s Manifesto from Goins, Writer.   Normally, I’d put a short post like this in my sidebar, but this is important and divine and should be front and center.   I hope it resonates.  

The Sprint Navigator Experience

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

{{Re-posting.}}   A few months ago, my husband and I canceled our seemingly lifelong Verizon Wireless membership and switched over to Sprint.   I know.   It’s just that we heard Sprint was much more affordable and had improved service. Over say, the really crappy service it offered before. Which is like saying Britney Spears […]

The Blackout

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

  I think the microwave clock read 4:24. My daughter noticed it first. Black where the numbers should be.   “The power went out.” She jumped up and down, giddy.   She’d been waiting for this day since last summer’s blackout. She’d loved every dark minute — the neighbor’s pool, the Chili’s dinner, the candlelight […]

The Day

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

There was this one day. Before I knew it was one of the final days, but after I began to think it might be. My mom was confined to her bed, and we all thought she’d be up again. I’d come home to San Francisco from Los Angeles, a little drunk because I hate to […]

Why You’ve Lost Your Words

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

  I’ve lamented these last several months my lack of coming up with anything to write. And when I do commit to words, my beloveds read wooden and trite, and superficial. Worse yet, I couldn’t figure out the problem, in fact, I obsessed over it, climbed up and down my brain, and continually came up […]

Two Funny Brains

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

So don’t know if evverrrryyyoonne knows yet, but last month, Jessica Bern and I started a company called Two Funny Brains.   We make funny Internet videos for companies, causes, and brands.   It is not p#rn.   Unless you think p#rn is funny. And are paying the bills. Then we’ll consider it (above-belly-button only). […]
