Back In The Day - The First Photo With My Husband
Take it all in, un-doctored.  At least not since 1999 when I scanned it in and saved it. The mom jorts with the stupid red hand prints on them. The 1998 bejeweled rhinestone choker. The photo of me right with a very flattering facial expression when everyon...

Local Blogger Flew Away Today on A Balloon Into The Sky
I don't take a lot of time in my life to dream. A lot of my life constantly moves at a pace faster than I would like. By the time I have time to wish something, that something has either already happened or it is too late for it to happen. The only time I g...

My Father's Dresser - Shitheads and Letters
I have not seen my father in person since 2010. It was the day after Christmas and we had breakfast in a pub with his girlfriend. I babbled on nervously about my aspirations and hoped it would become a regular thing. It didn't. My father has never understoo...

Things Worth Living For: Broken A/C, Robin Williams, Ableist Coworkers, Rain, Nettie Lou, Curly Sue, Pizza, and Mary Lambert.
I came to work in a very rotten mood today.   Our A/C has been on the blink for more than a week, causing us to open the windows, causing the waves of Maryland August humidity to moisten everything in the apartment into a stick glob of gross. There are no s...

My Bass Is Not Round
Source: Jenny Trout This video is everything I want my life to be. It is cotton-candy colored. It has sassy cute chubby guys who are amazing dancers with sweaters over their shoulders.  I can't resist shoulder sweaters. I just can't. The back-up dancers of ...

I still make time for gratitude no matter what anyone says about my attitude.
First, I am thrilled today is Friday. Really. Between our A/C being on the blink to being swamped at work, I cannot stop fantasizing about hammocks, ice cold lemonade and a good book. And if not that then my couch, a glass of water, and Buzz Feed articles w...
