I knew it. I'm too old.

You know if you talk about bombbomb on an airplane, you'll probably get "detained".

This would probably be funny if I had a better sense of the metro stops. :)

I grew up in Arlington and have been back several times since. Seems accurate, although Pentagon City ("shop for days") is no South Coast Plaza or Mall of America.

I enjoy a good to do list and I like tattoos so you'd think this would appeal to me. But this requires writing on yourself and that doesn't work for me.

Which, if you think about it, is equal parts Huh? and equal parts o_O.

After I dug myself out of a lot of debt in my late 20s I swore I wouldn't let that happen again.

Sadly, I didn't keep that promise to myself. There was a push to finish my last semester of college, then a stint with a personal trainer (for health!), then not one but two cross country moves. In between there was a short unemployed period which was still long enough to add to the bottom line.

For a year I knew I was in trouble again but with everything else going on I couldn't tackle it. Once I was in the job in Maryland and settled, I was able to really wrap my brain around the total damage. But even then I was sure I could chip away at it enough to make a difference. I think that was out of stubbornness and embarrassment really. Finally I realized the grown up thing to do was to move in with friends and aggressively pay down the debt. It's not been fun and I miss living alone even though the friends couldn't be nicer. But it's all been worth it as in a year and a half (barring life throwing me any more curve balls) I should be debt free - again. For good this time, damn it.

:) true enough but not even pretty shoes make me eager to have to go through another 3.5 years of tough budgeting. Though I say that and I'm mindful of the fact that I'm fortunate to be able to make this kind of progress in such a short amount of time. Not everyone can. So, yeah, need to keep that in perspective.

The only thing wrong with Inside Out is that it endangers Finding Nemo as my favorite Pixar movie. But it'll require another viewing or two to see if it sneaks on by. Still, a fantastic close second.

We have to really look at the barriers that are preventing people from turning their lives around. We can't grumble and shake our heads while at the same time doing nothing to help.

*Graphic Design Criticism as a Spectator Sport*

"Thanks to the internet and social media, what followed the introduction of the new packaging were not a few unnerving backyard conversations with eccentric neighbors, but an outpouring of complaints from consumers as well as demands that the suddenly beloved previous packaging be reinstated."

The above is in reference to the Tropicana rebrand attempt in 2009. I didn't write to the company but I was most definitely in the camp that noticed and disliked the change. It pleases me that I am friends with people who also notice such things. But I've also had enough experiences with people telling me that how a report looks, or the choice of font, or the kerning in a heading doesn't matter to still be a bit self conscious about my predilection for armchair designing.

I know a proper font won't cure cancer but let's face it - what are the odds I'll be the one curing cancer? But knowing an exclamation point is out of proportion with the rest of the lettering on a presidential campaign logo, now that I've got down. Play to your strengths, I always say.

I'll rock you harder than the Spice Girls on crack.
Introduction
I'm fierce as a woozle so don't make me do you like BDP did PM Dawn.

When I am not busy confusing people with strange blurbs, I am a child advocate trying to figure out how to better the lives of children and families. As Ms. Houston once told us, the children, they are our future.

As far as what I talk about online? Me, myself and I. If you're looking for posts about what's going on in the world, CNN I am not. So please bear that in mind when deciding to add me to your Circles. I try to be mildly interesting, somewhat funny and only a little bit annoying. If that's the sort of thing you want to see on a daily basis, Hello! Good to meet you.

Oh, occassionally I also post about Elmo. ELMO! I love him. 
 
DISCLAIMER:
 
For the sake of funny, I will occasionally wildly exaggerate the facts, say things that don't make a lot of sense, or pretend to be ignorant about an issue. I do not, however, post anything that isn't somewhat true.
 
On occasion I will post writing exercises that may involve fiction writing. In those instances, I make sure to point that out.
 
Should you ever wonder about something I've written, please feel free to ask me a question.
Bragging rights
I've had a photo published in a book and one included in a documentary. I'm not sure that used up my 15 minutes of fame so I'm reserving the rest for later use.
