Pet Peeve #531

Shipping lies. Yeah, you read that right. SHIPPING LIES. Not LINES. LIES. I do most of my shopping online because the truth of the matter is, I hate shopping. Get in the car, DRIVE to a mall, walk AROUND AND AROUND IN FUCKING CIRCLES trying to find some shit that either does not exist, thanks […]

The Sounds of Silence

I know…it’s been a while. There’s been a lot going on at home, and when I get a minute to breathe, which probably won’t be until AFTER Christmas, I’ll fill you in on some of the drama… But, there’s the Newtown thing. Things like that happen and I struggle, as a writer, with how to […]

Hold On, I’m Having A Moment Here

Did I mention I stopped taking ALL my meds? Yup. ALL OF IT. I stopped the Lexapro, which I believe I actually wrote about during the process. And then I was just on the Wellbutrin and I felt like I was taking sugar pills, so I stopped THOSE cold turkey, and I guess I could […]

One thing the Tech Guru and I have never been very good at: splitting up. When we became a couple, we did everything together: food shopping, we both went. Any kind of errand, we were both there. You would think that would have changed with the arrival of Punksin and Pudding, but as much as […]

Um, Yeah, THAT’S A Religion

We were driving home from – where else, swim practice – the other day, when Punksin noticed a dearth of holiday lights on the houses we were passing. “Mommy, how come a lot of these houses don’t have up Christmas lights?” she asked. “Because everyone’s too fucking broke from RunMotherFuckerRunRainPocalypse Sandy,” is what I SHOULD […]

I Am A Weapon of Mass Destruction

I can’t find my phone. I would ask one of you fabulous folks to call me so I could locate it, but the ringer is off, which it always is, because although I have a phone, I don’t really like TALKING to people. I JUST had it a minute ago, I swear, and now it’s […]

Some of Us Are Dead in the Water, And Some of Us Ain’t

I am ABSOLUTELY FREAKING EXHAUSTED. I don’t know if this happens to other people, but I get where I’m so tired that I can’t eat. This little quirk of mine is an awesome weight-maintenance tool. That, and the complete lack of desire for food when I’m stressed, which, given how often I get stressed, also […]
