Tricia is a train wreck who writes unabashedly about her life for your entertainment. Single, shameless and slightly scary, she'll probably make you laugh - if only in relief that you aren't her.

If You Love Me (Even a Little), You'll Read This One...
I implore you to please stick with me through this one; it's lengthy, and you'll never get those twenty minutes back, but maybe - just maybe - you'll learn something very important about invisible illnesses. I haven't written anything in ages; I haven't bee...

Photo Fail
Recently someone accused me of being stingy with pictures of my niece, so I felt the need to explain myself. I no longer take photos of her, because I'm not allowed to use my phone. Once upon a time I showed Priya the camera roll on my phone and she shrieke...

What I Wish I Knew in High School
I'm crashing my 20th high school reunion on Saturday. I say crashing because although they are my class, I wasn't there graduating with them. I was lucky to make it out of puberty alive, never mind a diploma. People seem to remember high school as either th...

Friends Forever
I've been thinking a lot about friends lately, probably because my 20th HS reunion is in a few weeks or possibly because, when you have no career, car, home, partner, family or children of your own, your relationships are all that's left in your life. I wat...

Never Say No to Cuddles
"There's clearly something going on neurologically." "It seems like an infection, but it could be heart disease or a systemic cancer. Or possibly a blood clot." "There are abnormalities but she's an unusual case - we aren't sure what to think." "At this poi...

World War Pia vs Me
Our First Meeting My niece is 22 months old; I can't wait until she's two because speaking in months sounds douchey - but it typically explains a lot, developmentally. Pia is an anomaly. An average vocabulary for someone her age is roughly 20 words with com...

My Niece is Obvanously Gifted and Talented
I don't like to brag but I've been terribly busy with my niece; you see, she speaks now. She's not even eighteen months old, and she's got a vocabulary of more than thirty words - she's definitely gifted . She calls me Me - not Auntie, or Tricia, or even Te...

HalloWeenie of the Year
Maybe I was a little sheltered when I was small.  We didn't have cable television. The first movie I remember terrifying me was Gremlins, at age seven. At eight,  Large Marge nearly made me shit my pants and by nine I'd seen Clue at a slumber party. I had n...

Lyme Loonies - Get Loud!
On Wednesday I had a court hearing to appeal my denial of Social Security disability benefits. My stomach was in knots and I mentally prepared myself for another letdown, so when the judge ruled in my favor, three things happened in quick succession. I crie...

Childfree vs Parent - A Helpful Translation Guide
While everyone knows that life with children will be a big change, the reality can still be a bit shocking, like a dip in an icy lake or perhaps a dive into utter lunacy. I don't have children of my own, but I live with my brother and his wife - and the  mo...

Mini-Me
Genetics are a funny (terrifying?) thing. Two of my cousins look more like my mother's daughters than I do. My brother and I look alike, yet I think he looks just like one of my uncles while I do not. And now there is my niece, Lil Dickie, who is clearly - ...

Story
Tagline
Author, Confessions of a Recovering Cynic
Introduction
I'm a shameless writer missing several brain cells and a filter. I write about stuff you don't want to know but you laugh anyhow then glance around surreptitiously to see if anyone noticed and you feel vaguely ashamed.
Bragging rights
I was an extra in Mallrats, my big toes are double-jointed and I make a mean homemade salsa.
