"It made it clear that prison was not a cake walk by any means, but it was incredibly HUMAN. I went into it picturing more "prison break" and instead found a beautiful story about relationships, kindness, survival and compassion."
I grabbed this book off an airport shelf as an antidote to desperate boredom during one of my many wanderings and flight delays over the holidays, paid way too much for it (as airports require)....and then bought some overpri...

Sometimes I get ideas and then I just do them. That is my most eloquent statement of the century. Carve it in stone somewhere, mmmk? I had a conversation with a friend last week in which we discussed our decision-making style...

Helloooo, 2015! I've spent the last week on the most delicious vacation that first involved Vegas and rounded off with a visit to several of my people in Utah. Other than both of these places being inappropriately freezing, i...

Last weekend, I had a visitor! Something excellent about living somewhere awesome is that people come to visit you. Who doesn't want to come to the Bay Area, you know?? Nobody visited me when I lived in Arizona. Ha. Which is ...

Thoughts on Pixar's new Inside Out trailer... "I'm pretty sure this scenario would have been shot down immediately if the gender roles had been reversed, with the mom being portrayed as even slightly incompetent while the dad pictured an attractive, exotic ex-girlfriend in his head."
Not to go there, but OK, let's go there.... (Posted this on Facebook earlier and decided I wanted to house it on my blog as well to maybe hit a different demographic and further the discussion. Hi, welcome!) Pre-req: watch th...

Dear 28, here's what I want from you....
I'm turning 28! It's my birthday next week! Meaning: birthday month. Meaning: time to make excuses for anything and everything I want to do (or eat) because "it's my birthday!" Y'all know how it goes. Y'all KNOW. Birthdays ...

"There are things we can control, and things we can't. I think a lot of our emotional/mental conflict in life is caused by failing to recognize that and not living harmoniously with it. ....I feel most in balance when I can clearly recognize this reality, and choose to live with it instead of constantly fighting against it."
For the first time in what feels like weeks, I have found myself at a moment where my work queue is not a frenzy, and my brain is not too sick of computer screens to even think about blogging....so here I am! I have wanted to...

You know what they say, sometimes you just gotta get yer hindparts on a plane to Las Vegas. ...I don't think anyone actually says that. But I just did. And, I'm actually not that crazy about Vegas. It's kind of a bizarre Ba...

If you've ever wanted to hear a recording of me hysterically laughing about bacon.....
....except that one time in junior high when my friend Mindi and I *tried* to cook bacon and mostly just set off the smoke detector. Maybe it was residual trauma from that experience, but I realized tonight: I don't know how ...

I don't spend much time with silence. The main reason being that I love music. In fact, Spotify told me that in 2014 I listened to 42,658 minutes of music.....the equivalent of 29.6 solid days of music listening. Haha! Not su...
