On Owning Your Words
"Spic." The word, directed at me, was laced with vitriol.  I was eight years old, and I didn't know what it meant; I only suspected that it was something hurtful. I was used to hurtful words, but when I asked my mother about this one, she told me only that ...

#Microblog Mondays: The Things I (Now) Hate
We were coloring (not drawing) with markers. Despite the stockpile of crayons in all 96 colors (and more, given the slight variations in color depending on brand), and the fact that the markers were half-dried-up anyway, requiring smaller-than-usual strokes...

Bystander Intervention, and the Comeback
(reposted in an expanded version from Facebook) I don't usually stop at Starbucks in the morning.  I make my own coffee, and even when I buy coffee, I prefer to get it from an independent shop.  But 1) I had to go to the post office, which is near Starbucks...

#Microblog Monday: Read to Me
This weekend, during a long drive (you'll just have to wait to find out where I went!), I listened to what I think may have been my first audiobook. I belong to a book discussion group that reads one book a month together, and I've always read the book, sca...

#Microblog Monday: I've Got a Little List
"I have a list of plans for next year," I said, proudly. "Well, I want to hear them while they're still fresh," he assured me. And of course, by the time he sat down in my office, all of the ideas seemed stale, or wilted, or just plain ... well, half-baked....

In the Time of the Butterflies
We huddled together on the platform, waiting in the relentless wind, as the dark-clad scarf-wrapped crowd swelled, gradual, silent.  Shifting their feet.  We could see only their eyes. My daughter whined softly, nesting closer, asking when the train would c...

From One Writer to Another
After we'd left all of our bags and coats in a locked room, they led us into a windowless classroom inside the library where a large screen featured the catalogue search page.  I was there with a group of students for a session on archival research; I thoug...

Out of Time
Driving over the hill, I had to shade my eyes from the sun; the light was all wrong. It was mid-day, and I'd taken the morning off to stay with my daughter, who had been running a fever of 106 (no, that is not a typo) during the previous two days.  I hadn't...

Last night, as the kids ate dumplings and sushi and sate (ordered in) at the kitchen counter, because my husband was away at the NJ Regional Science Fair, I told them that today was going to be Pi Day. We would have pie for breakfast, and pie for dinner, and maybe even pie for lunch.

On International Women's Day
Maybe I'd been living under a rock, but I'm pretty certain that the first time I heard about International Women's Day in my 30s, I thought it was an Australian thing. No one had ever celebrated International Women's Day in my house when I was growing up, n...

Tea with Strangers, and Gluten Free Morning Glory Muffins
I may have been socialized to tea by the center cabinet in my mother's kitchen, right next to the window, which always always smelled of dry goods, and contained peanut butter, measuring cups, a bag of rice, and a wide selection of Lipton and Celestial Seas...

Fluffy Saturday (er, Sunday) Meme
Mel tagged us all with a meme .  So I did what Mel told me to.  Because why not. 1. When was the last time you cut your hair? Did you like the haircut? Too long ago.  October, maybe?  I'm due for another.  I always get the same cut.  Though it feels a littl...

I am a regular at American Tire and Auto of Flemington. I have found them to be fair, and to have competitive pricing. If I have a complaint about service, they do their best to resolve it (e.g. once after a repair I heard a continued noise, and they took it back twice to continue investigating the problem, free of charge). They stand by their work. I can always get an appointment, and the vehicle is ready when they say it will be ready. My one complaint is that sometimes I feel it's a bit too busy, and so they have to rush through their explanations of repairs and charges.
