Crow and Cake

Before I tell you all about my week – I feel compelled to describe my current surroundings to you. It’s a Sunday morning. My supposed “drunkard” neighbors (that was gossip from the old man down the street who apparently watches everyone all day) are in the back yard in Hawaiian-looking getups, not yet arguing but [...]

Thank You For My Sanity

I have the best coworkers. I know a lot of them won’t read this – but I really should say “Thank you” more. Sometimes the only thing that gets me through a rough day at work is the laughter and comradery that we share.  I can be dealing with a particularly difficult project and all [...]

A Year in Review: 2018’s Top Nine

I was really excited to find that people are doing their “Top Nine” again this year. I think it’s a really cool way to reflect on the year, based solely on your social media posts on Instagram. Now, I know there are important events that won’t have been commemorated with a photo post and that [...]

IT’S THE BIG ONE-ZERO-ZERO

Today is a blog day, and it’s not just any blog day – it is the 100th blog day! 100 BLOGS I’ve written and posted 100 blogs – call me cynical, but I doubt there is anyone out there who can say that they’ve read all the blogs. (Except for myself, of course.) **Edit: Denise [...]

Psychos Anonymous: A One-Step Program

I had a rough day yesterday. Why? I couldn’t tell you what triggered it absolutely. Lack of sleep? Not eating enough? I was an emotional wreck, swinging through moods faster than Tarzan travels through the jungle on those vines of his. I was insecure, irritable, I cried 5 separate times (one of which was in [...]

How to spot a Gentleman: A letter to 18-year-old me (and some of my 20+-year-old friends)

Sorry, this is so late guys. I was busy looking for a gentleman on which to base my blog this week. KIDDING. I’m surrounded by plenty of wonderful gentlemen, one of whom is the real reason my blog is so late this week. The real reason I’m so late is that I spent the weekend [...]

The E in Easter is for Embarrassment

Happy Easter to my favorite reader! (Hint: that’s you.) On this Easter Sunday, the day that Christians believe Jesus Christ rose from the dead, I thought I would bring something of my own back from the dead: my embarrassment. (Yes, I know that was a terrible joke and I’m sorry if I have offended anyone. [...]

Peas Out, Cub Scout

Believe it or not, as you are reading this, I am out of the country. Yes, again. Peace out, USA. Two months short of a year since my last excursion outside of the US, I’m at it again, crossing borders.  This time I’m flying across the pond with a bit more luggage in tow. My [...]

Best Nine

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone!  Today’s blog is going to be a little bit short, not for a lack of material, but because I’m simultaneously getting ready to go out for some NYE celebrations with friends but wanted to still get this posted on my regular Sunday post day. There has been this “Best Nine [...]

To Choose or Not To Choose

I’ve been thinking a lot about choice lately. Our ability “to select freely and after consideration,” as defined by the Merriam-Webster's dictionary. Life is literally a giant Choose-Your-Own-Adventure. We face millions of choices every day.  Some small, some large.  Do I get out of bed and put on pants and go interact with the rest [...]
