Have you done PROMPTuesday yet? If not, here you go! May my exciting and scintillating prompt responses inspire you. (Just don’t get all “wanting to be exactly like me” on my butt.) 1. What were you doing 10 years ago? I was working at a manufacturing company as a PR specialist, and…Continue Reading
Memes used to be huge, remember them? Back in 2008 when I was newly San Diego Momma, they circulated around the Internet like bloggy wildfire and if you weren’t “tagged,” you felt like a failure.

OK, here it is: a scene from the comedy web series I’ve been writing for…a year? ever? SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME YOU LIKE IT! I know that last part wasn’t a time reference. The thing about being creative is that eventually you have to “ship” your work and the putting it out there is…Continue Reading

Although my foray into losing pounds hath forsaken me, I thought I’d at least share some helpful things I discovered while on my pointless diet-and-exercise journey to nowhere. Maybe they’ll work for some of you. I’ll just sit here and expand further into butt oblivion while you read. Nuun U Natural Hydration…Continue Reading
