People, You Really Need to Keep Up

I’ve been sooooooo busy. Really, it’s scary. And to make sure that you don’t miss any important moments in my oh-so-scintillating life, let me give you a bullet-point list on what the hell has been going on. I dyed my hair dark again again. Yes, I know, I think I said some year or so […]

To Snip or Not To Snip, That Is The Question

You may recall – I did tell you, didn’t I? – that the people we got Wolfie from were not reputable breeders as they seem to have thought, but bona fide assholes. Well, it gets better. Apparently, Wolfie has an undescended testicle, which for those of you in love with difficult words and tongue twisters, […]

Awesomeness Personified

This is short, cuz I have things to do, people, okay? But I wanted to share this with you, because this is…   This is Punksin killing people with her wicked breaststroke. WICKED, I tell you. WICKED. It’s her best stroke. Probably because most of the power comes from the legs, and I know for […]

I’m Tired of Kids That Are Twats

Really. I am. I work SO FUCKING HARD to make sure my kids are NOT twats. They are not perfect. NO one is perfect. But they know to say please and thank you. They know not to be greedy. They know not to be rude to other people. They know not to be mean and […]

Um, Yeah, I Didn’t Tell You But We Have a Baby

Did I not tell you? I don’t think I told you. Maybe I did but I’m too lazy to go back into my own archives to check. Anyhow, last December, early in the month, we brought this little guy into the family. His name  – savor this, because this is the only family member without […]

Them Darned Homuhsexshuls

So apparently – yes, I’m going to jump right in as though I was just here yesterday – an Episcopalian priest in my community (meaning cultural, not necessarily where I LIVE) has been defrocked for his views on homosexuality and gay marriage. Apparently, he doesn’t agree with the Episcopal Church’s relatively new views on blessing […]

Sick As A What?

Why do people say “sick as a dog“? I mean, do dogs often get sick? And when they do, do they FEEL AS SHITTY AS I DO RIGHT NOW? Anyhow, whatever the history behind THAT phrase (I’ll have to look it up now because I know YOU won’t), I am THAT kind of sick. I […]

Togetherness

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 […]

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 […]
