Okay, is it wrong to say this viral break up text made my day? My sense of humor might be a little warped, but this speaks to me. At first I thought it was funny, but, then I realized I’m pretty sure I dated a guy like this once or twice. Call me old fashioned… […]
I spent the early morning unsubscribing from email alerts from stores I don’t even remember subscribing to and turning off email alerts from a social media platform I rarely visit (*cough* Google+). I’m tired of the noise. I’m tired of my inbox overflowing with stuff I don’t want to see and probably never will. I’m […]
Here are some interesting articles and videos I enjoyed this week. From writing prompts, to parenting advice, to help for the sleep deprived (me!), to the ridiculous, and everything in between. Enjoy! Parents: Let Harvard Go This Feminist Twist On “The Princess Bride” Will Give You Life 500 Prompts For Narrative And Personal […]
Chris Erskine, my favorite humor columnist and L.A. resident wordsmith, writes The L.A. Time’s The Middle Ages. I have been following his clever, delightful, hilarious articles for years. His Saturday pieces about himself and his family have always left me in stitches and inspired me as a parent and a writer. So when I came […]
BlogHer kindly sends us #NaBloPoMo masochists a daily blog prompt during the week just in case we are at a loss for ideas. So far, I haven’t used any of theirs. Where my ideas come from I’ll never know. Divine intervention, perhaps. I’m not even half way through the 30 day challenge and I know […]
I was at a party recently, when a handsome young gentleman smiled broadly at me and remarked that it was “nice to see a woman eat and drink.” I must confess, I was holding a slice of pizza in one hand, a Vampire’s Delight (a wickedly delicious vodka concoction) in the other. Looking around the […]
I seem to be on a holiday-decoration-pillow shopping spree. Seeking comfort and expression wherever I go, I guess. Perhaps, I just need a nap. Posting everyday for a month during #NaBloPoMo will do that to you! Anyway, this pretty much says it all. The best part? It’s sparkly.
Movie night is a big deal in our home. When our kids were in high school and especially during the summers before we shipped them off to college, we became obsessed with watching movies about college. So, whether you’re in college, on your way to college, or simply reminiscing about some of the best days […]
I picked an interesting month to take on the National Blog Post Month challenge. This happens to be an unusually busy month for me personally, with a lot of commitments weighing heavily on me, and, as usual, not enough sleep. Cranking out a daily blog post, for me, feels rushed, premature, and honestly, stressful. But, […]
Like a lot people at the end of every year, I make a list of New Year’s Resolutions. This is something I look forward to every year and usually with great enthusiasm. Usually, this involves a lot of cutting and pasting from the previous year: Talk on the phone instead of text, read more, workout […]
My first holiday decoration purchase of the season. I love this message and the pillow looks so good on the bench in my entry, that I think I will leave it there year-round. Have you started your holiday decorating?
