My Mortal Enemy, Part Last-th

OKAY so I am going to wind up talking about M.M.E. (if I can, considering how long winded I am) because I don’t really want to THINK about It more. I got a bee in my butt about It because I turned down a speaking gig I wanted to avoid It. And that made […]

The Many-Parted Mortal Enemy Saga PART THE NILth

I am going to tell you a bunch of stories in a row that are going to SEEM unconnected, but I am going to bring it all home in the end.

Or not. Depending on if I remember to. I HOPE I DO. You must nag and pink sock at me if I […]

Comfort Zoned Residential

Remember this dollhouse? It had a bubble chimney. My house does not have that.

Nancy was talking about confidence on my group blog, LIPSTICK CHRONICLES and it started me thinking about comfort zones.

I am confident in arenas where I know what I am doing and I believe I have a gift for […]

I Am Not Dead. I AM, However, Super Longwinded.

This is a Porn Moose.

Dear Facebook-Beloveds, I am not dead, and if you read the last entry HERE, you probably guessed I was just busy. Also I had no internet for days. And stuff. Want to play catch up? And find out what a Porn Moose is? (Hint: Look Left) ME TOO!

So, […]

An Explanation

1) Rememer that superfun day when I lost the sacred Paper […]

Confessional Dog Poet

Today we tell on ourselves. Today it’s like we left the house in clean but TATTY UNDERPANTS like our mom told us NEVER TO DO, and this blog is our fender bender where we are hurt (but not TOO hurt) and the EMTs see them, grayed out and grannified, and we SO wish we had […]

Art(fart)istic Tendencies

See LINCOLN? See the beard and nose? It got even more Lincolny as I went along.

I am not crafty. My artistic impulses never come out art-tastic. I am not crafty or coordinated or skilled or even blessed with FLAIR of any kind. My friend Julie says my favorite color is drab…AND SHE IS […]

Inappropriate Googlage

This is not a real burning building.

One time, I needed to burn down a museum.

There was a fireman at our church named Russell, and one Sunday, I pulled Russell aside and asked for his help. “I am going to commit some arson, and I need a real conflagration for this museum,” […]

One Full Basement


Remember 5 Full Plates? It was this theoretically great idea I had (key word: theoretically), where I would band with four of my dearest blog-inclined friends, and we would challenge each other and improve our lives and find corners of time in which we might care […]

What my Biffles Did on Their Summer Vacation

The first trailer for Water for Elephants is out, and WOW but it looks like sexy, brilliant OSCAR BAIT. I am SO excited to see this movie. I would be foaming even if it wasn’t Sara’s book because it looks AMAZING. I have loved Reese Witherspoon since Scott and I were flipping channels about and […]
