Damn it.  My husband is on to me!  He has read my last two essays and has banned me from using him as source material for my blog!  Damn.  Damn.  Damn.  That is at least 60% of my reserves and I haven’t even gotten to write in detail (though I alluded to it in my […]

Proof of Evolution

December 22, 2011

1 Comment

I have uncovered definitive proof of evolution for all the naysayers still out there who think humankind sprang from magic and a rib. I am going to offer that unequivocal proof to you now: my husband. Get this:  he has a severely-thinning head and a pretty hairless chest, but below the waist, he looks like […]

Men are Babies. Enough Said.

Forgive me for taking on such a clichéd topic as men and their threshold for “pain.”  I know the fact that men are complete wusses when it comes to illness or discomfort of any kind is a softball subject lobbed at me in slow motion, but I have had a special request, and I thought […]

Really, REALLY bad children’s movies.

December 19, 2011

Thankfully, the movies that I am forced to take my daughter to see these days, are often more than tolerable and occasionally even downright brilliant.  “Shrek”, all of them, is still enjoyed in our household on a bi-weekly basis.  “Toy Story”, all of them, will go down in history as classics. “Tangled” rocks.  A princess […]

My “Jack Of All Trades”, self-description is not a joke, though the second half of that saying, being “master-of-none”, may be the most accurate part.  I lost count… but I am somewhere over 40 jobs, in my life… which assuming that I did not start working as a baby, average more than one a year.

“Can I get an Amen?” is the name of my new “column” that will appear frequently in this blog.  The subject of each essay will fall under the category of “things I cannot stand.”  If they are also things that YOU cannot stand, then I’d like “to get an amen.   As the “actual” holidays […]

Getting Old. Going Blind.

December 14, 2011

The worst thing SO FAR, about getting older (I’m not getting older, I am getting better, right?  Yeah, right.)…. is that I am slowly going blind as a bat. I do say “so far”, ‘cause I know this is just the tip of a very large iceberg.  One that will eventually sink my ship. I […]

Ho Ho Ho… Hah! Gotcha!

It is an oft-asked question… Santa or No?  Most people I know do do Santa (ha ha, I said doo doo) and I LOVED the idea of Santa when I was a child.   It is one of my fondest childhood memories.  The excitement of waiting on the Big Guy is akin to peeing on myself today.  […]
