Camel Toe Sausage Casing

March 12th, 2012 · 3 Comments · Venting

Apparently I am uncomfortable with any level of positive self esteem in my life. I began the past two weekends feeling pretty good about myself, but quickly rectified that by going swimsuit shopping one Sunday and then shopping for jeans the next. Both were ill conceived outings I will concede, but I have been working […]

You are getting very sleepy

January 23rd, 2012 · 1 Comment · Stuff, Venting

The latter part of last year found me fighting a losing battle with fatigue. Not just your average “I don’t get enough sleep” fatigue, but Rip-Van-Winkle-ing-through-entire-weekends tired. I would lay down for a nap and end up sleeping for four hours at a whack. It was a bit crazy pants and weekends became unproductive, not […]

Underroos

October 26th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Stuff, Venting

I prefer boxers, not that you asked. Ever since I had any familiarity with men’s underwear, I have been on Team Boxers. Over time I came to accept the inevitability of tightie-whiteys, but they were considered an unpleasant reality at one point. It has been explained to me that good ole boxers have a tendency […]

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 […]

What’s up Doc

July 12th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Stuff, Venting

I went to the emergency room Saturday morning, not part of my weekend plans. I had a pain above my ankle that was so severe it made me cry to put weight on it. It started with sort of a soreness and escalated to an actual pain. Bob consulted Dr. Google and decided that it […]

Spring, What Spring?

May 29th, 2011 · No Comments · Stuff

Maybe if we planned our “spring vacation” for July spring might have actually arrived in Chicago before we departed, but as it was we packed for our tenth anniversary trip leaving lovely 56° temperatures behind in mid-May. The good news is that we were headed to the land of 85° sunny days and mild trade […]

Arggh

March 2nd, 2011 · No Comments · Venting

I think it has been said by all sorts of maritime authorities, but just for the record: Let’s all stop sailing in and around the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Aden, shall we? I don’t mean to be insensitive; the tragic execution of the four Americans last week made me sick to my stomach. […]

College redux thwarted

August 23rd, 2010 · No Comments · Stuff

It looks as if I will be delaying my return to college. Luckily, I did not run out and buy school supplies or this fall’s coolest jeans. The local university of my choice (a school that my taxes pay for) will not accept my transcripts as prerequisites to their business courses because they are TOO […]

My Fragile Self Esteem

May 10th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Venting

I had been feeling pretty good about myself. Procrastination was way down for the quarter and, while I was clearly not as fit as I was a couple of years ago, I hadn’t completely let myself go. I had accepted the reduction in our income with grace, if I do say so myself. All things […]

Here comes the judge

April 19th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Stuff, Venting

I have a confession to make: if you bring your children into the store where I work, I may judge you as a parent. I know that I don’t have actual children of my own, which makes my position here a little shaky, but I can’t help it. I may judge. I work part time […]
