A Sober Stumble Upon?

Part of the beauty of WordPress is that I’m on it one can customize their blog to better enable readers to share their posts through a variety of social networking platforms.  Thankfully, I do not suffer from the delusion  that people want to do anything with my posts–especially read them–with the exception of following my […]

the badbye

To say it’s been a challenging year would be like calling a cucumber a pickle. Well, sort of. Anyway, my point is that I’m not all that surprised to have found myself driving across the country and through the middle of nowhere last weekend, for purposes of saying goodbye to a dying family member. The […]

ovaries vs. NOvaries

Very recently, I was diagnosed with the breast cancer gene–the one made famous by Angelina Jolie.  The diagnosis has left me with some mixed emotions, mostly centered on how, exactly, I should reach out to Angie for support and, oh, maybe a lifetime of friendship and camaraderie, but at the very least a happy hour […]

complex conflict

Having lost the battle with my apartment company, I have resigned myself to the reality that I will remain in this poor-couples-with-toy-dog hell hole for another month and will then be paying double rent for longer than I should have to, which is not at all.  The only redeeming quality of my current residence is […]

Bike to Bars Day

It’s Bike to Work Day 2013 (obviously, right?), so you can bet I spent part of the morning on my Hymen Buster 3000.  Bike to Work Day happens to be one of my favorite summer social events, and it usually ends up being more like Bike to Breakfast and Another Breakfast and Another Breakfast Day.  […]

I’ve been doing a lot of yoga lately.  I really like yoga, there are so, so many benefits to practicing yoga and I can’t begin to explain how fucking sick I am of hearing about all of them. My biggest complaint about practicing yoga is that you have to do it with other people, and […]

… as in kickballing. No one has ever accused me of being athletic, nor would they. People have accused me of being a lush, though, so you can imagine how at home I felt at my first beer-league kickball game recently. Finally, a place where I am accepted for who I am not, which is […]

Bitch Camp

Now that it’s summer I’m focusing on getting in shape which means I’ll be bikini ready by mid-November. This is not surprising–I’m always late, a trait that almost never works out in my favor; fortunately, I never care.  But it would be nice to accomplish what I know, deep down, will be jack shit before […]

Dear Crabby

I’ve always wanted to run an advice column–well, “always” being the last two weeks. An unfortunate side effect of my attention span being the size of Tyrion Lannister is that my dreams and aspirations are short lived.  On the plus side, failure is infrequent because there is no time for it.  Initially (two weeks ago), […]

Groupisson

I’ve gotten some good deals on Groupon and helped screw over jump start numerous businesses around the area by investing in these deals.  Once Groupon started offering goods, I developed a healthy collection of junk that I didn’t need and/or know I wanted, including this: Although this is clearly a must-have in any woman’s purse (presumably […]

Just Another Magic Monday

I don’t know why I’m surprised when Mondays turn into shit show central around here, it’s exactly the same drill every week. By the time I get in, Harriet Hates Her Job has successfully brewed the worst tasting coffee in the history of bad office coffee.  She will naturally have forgotten to wash the filter […]
