The Dress is White and Gold, and By the Way It’s Also the End Of the World As We Know It

If I live a long life, I imagine myself to be like one of those old people in the movies - the narrators, the storytellers. You know, they always have one, final story to tell. The movie begins and ends with them. It's always about the defining moment in their lives, invariably unloaded onto some… Continue reading The Dress is White and Gold, and By the Way It’s Also the End Of the World As We Know It

What You Should Do The Next Time Someone Calls You A Bad Mom

The last twenty-four hours have been a little bit surreal for me. I'm not sure why - as my husband said just this evening, weird events mixed with our usual day-to-day at-home nonsense is the norm.

Moving along... So last week sucked. It sucked hard. Harder than ... well, I think you've gotten the point. Not to… Continue reading Last Week Sucked Harder Than Your Mom Every Time She Goes To Mardi Gras

MWF Seeking New TTF

I wanted to do SWF, because that would sound more like that creepy Single White Female-movie with Jodie Foster correction: Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh (you are so right, Jeremy ... I have no clue about movies). But then my husband would get upset and/or confused; and my mother in law would call. We would have… Continue reading MWF Seeking New TTF

I Think I Have An Obsession With Balls

Balls on a stick, covered in frosting and sprinkles. Balls mixed with egg and simmered in cranberry sauce for a few hours. Balls made out of cheese and chutney, rolled in a variety of nuts and miscellaneous hanging fruit. Balls drizzled in caramel and covered in - big surprise - nuts. These will be the… Continue reading I Think I Have An Obsession With Balls
