Card Party

September 19th, 2011 · No Comments · Stuff, Venting

I have always had a bit of a problem with card shopping. I am pro-greeting card in the a general sense. I like the fact that cards are an inexpensive and (theoretically) easy way to show someone you care. I enjoy receiving cards as well. I find that I actually prefer receiving a nice card to a […]

Craig and his list

February 8th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Stuff

So I am a little afraid of Craigslist. I actually found my current job on Craigslist, so from the user standpoint I am a fan. Now, however, I am attempting to sell something on my buddy Craig’s list and that is a whole other ball of wax. The object in question is my husband’s Yamaha […]

Making Mental Illness Work for You

February 1st, 2010 · 2 Comments · Stuff

I may be a little more bipolar that I realized. I know that sounds like being a “little pregnant”, but it would explain my anxiety attacks and the crazy organizational episodes that I have. As I have mentioned before, I suffer from depression and am appropriately medicated, thus the getting out of bed and functioning […]

The skinny

November 12th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Animals on my planet, Stuff

So last week I declare my gratitude to all (both) of my readers and to my blog itself and then….. crickets. Nothing. So by way of an update: There was talk of Goose’s weight. Someone (Bob) thought that there was too much of it. I maintained that his torso is just larger than his legs […]

A & E ‘s New Series: Snackers

August 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Everything else is gravy, Stuff

I may have mentioned once or twice that I have issues. And if you are new here, well, I have issues. One of my more addict-ish behaviors involves food. I have the propensity to become slightly obsessed with a particular food. It isn’t as if I will eat nothing but mac and cheese for a […]

Water Gun Control

August 8th, 2009 · No Comments · Venting

Let me be clear, I don’t like guns. I see no value in BB guns. Boys use then to shoot very dangerous cans and bottles off fences in preparation for their real prey: squirrels. I am not sure I really understand paint ball.  A group of friends get together for an afternoon of shooting each […]

Reality television, I wish I knew how to quit you

July 12th, 2009 · No Comments · Good bad television, Stuff

Just to be clear I didn’t give up reality television. I have totally been watching The Bachelorette. And I must say that for the first time in Bachelorette history, Jillian, our bachelorette, actually had choices that were appealing. There were a couple of duds and of course, one big slippery weasel, who really doesn’t deserve […]

Planes, trains and automobiles (or in our case buses)

June 10th, 2009 · No Comments · Stuff

Having completed my second Alaskan expedition, I am now confident that I have seen what I, personally, need to see of that part of the country. It was a beautiful trip marred only slightly by two stomach bugs, a urinary tract infection and a case of the Moose flu. The latter was contracted by my […]

Bra-Humbug

February 24th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Stuff

Bathing suit shopping is a cake walk, if you ask me, compared to bra shopping. That may be only because I apparently have a very unique pair of breasts. Of course they are, you say. Well they are, but only because they don’t make bras to fit them. I have been measured and fitted and […]

You can’t handle the truth.

February 23rd, 2009 · No Comments · Stuff

I listen to National Public Radio a lot on my car radio. There doesn’t seem to be any one radio station that plays a mix of music that I enjoy. I know, shocking that there are no hip hop/folk singer/rap/rock stations. Even when I can find a station that is playing a song that I […]
