The Most Vile Thing on Earth…

has to be peanut butter. Next to Mitt Romney, that is, and yes, I’ve just given you some idea of my political leanings, and if that means you don’t like me any more then GOOD RIDDANCE TO YOU. I can’t imagine how anyone who is not White, male and rich could possibly conceive of voting […]

Short and Not So Sweet

There are life updates. Seriously. I’ve just been in too shitty a mood to go into them. Some of them have been good. Some of them have been not so good. And although in either case I tend to be pretty wordy with the here’s-what’s-happening-in-my-life posts, right now, I am so not in the fucking […]

Days 5 and 6 and My Daughter Is A Mermaid

So far so good! I made it through a week of reduced Lexapro without killing myself or anyone else! I thought it best, after what I’ve read, to reduce it in small increments, so I went from 10 mg to 7.5 mg. I’m trying to decide if I should go another week on 7.5 or […]

I Should SO Be in London Right Now

I swear, listening to Andrea Whats-her-face asking the Olympic swimmers questions after they come out of the pool, is only slightly less annoying than driving pencils into my eyeballs. What is this woman getting PAID for? Michael Phelps lost one of his races. I mean, REALLY lost. No gold, no silver, no bronze. Which means, […]

What I Have That Lolo Jones Doesn’t

So yesterday the Tech Guru and I were watching the Olympic Trials in Track & Field. This is MUST-SEE TV in this house. Lolo Jones, who fell down in Bejing during the 100-m hurdles and totally embarrassed herself, poor thing, came in 3rd in the Finals in Oregon and qualified to go to London representing […]

Swimming and the Art of Excellence

So I’m at the swim club with Punksin and Pudding yesterday. What was once an hour-long event has turned into about THREE hours, thanks to Punksin making it onto the swim team. She started her Level 5 class last week Tuesday. The teacher, who had been her teacher in Level 3, told her once again […]

Football for Dummies

So tonight, I am watching football. The Eagles are playing Monday Night Football. (In case you didn’t know, the Eagles are the football team you must support in order to live in this house.) Now, I am relatively new to the sport. Until I met the Tech Guru some, what, 14 years ago, I didn’t […]

Why What You Wear Matters

Okay, so this whole Inez Sainz thing. Which you can read about here cuz I’m already too far into my rant to go back and explain it to you. I get that she is a female sports reporter who is just trying to do her job. And I agree that she should be able to […]

I’ll Take Racism for $1000, Please

Two wonderful examples of today’s more covert form of racism: Dan Gilbert’s tirade against the recently departed LeBron James. The man may have every right to be disappointed that LeBron didn’t take him up on his offer to give him The World, but the type of invective and completely illogical rambling that he was spouting […]
