In The Tide of Emotional Comeback
I've been without much emotion for a long time. I felt sad, but it always was bland, simple, mindless. I had little interest in anything, in people, in playing. It's probably depression, actually that's what it has to be, but it didn't impede on my going ab...

Spooky Boobs
So it's 8am and it's already another lousy day but here's a funny story in spite of it: I get to work very early on Fridays so I'm alone, it's quiet, no risk

Judging Books by Covers
Although today is Christmas Day, you don't need yet another form of media to tell you about Christmasy things. That's not to say I don't love Christmas- I do- but one can only take so much of anything. So instead, I'll share a thought I had this morning, wh...

Ugh, My Husband
My husband is clever. Damned clever. Clever to the point where I loathe him. One of our cats has stopped using the litter box. Perhaps because she is old, perhaps because she's a bitch, I don't know. We have pee pads in front of the litter box where she goe...

The Life of No Regrets
Inspirational books and Facebook posts would have you believe that it is the decisions you never made, the actions not taken, that bring you the most regret when you grow old. I don't know the kind of life these people assume we're leading- perhaps they fee...

Christmas in the Lower Income Bracket
Christmas is coming and I am partly very excited about it, and partly exhausted already. People in the lower income bracket can appreciate how the holidays seem bleaker than usual, especially when you have a child that you want to make a special holiday for...
