my “hangover” parade

We live in a tourist area as I’ve mentioned a bazillion times before…and so our town does weird-ass things to attract tourists. Year-round. There. That should suffice as an explanation, when you wonder why I went to a Mardi Gras parade last night. Because yes. I know. It’s August. And I’m not still drunk. And

dance it out

My sweet friend had a really shitty day today, so I decided to cheer her up by expressing myself though finger dance; essentially. In reality, I hijacked random memes from the internet and strung them together. Like this. When push comes to shove… And… Then the next time the ugly people mess with you, just

what are names?

Recently I had lunch with my oldest son Jamie, and the subject of names came up because a relative recently gave her baby an oddball name, from a character in a popular slasher flick. Then my son told me about a kid he knew in college named Baskin Knight. Naturally I asked if his middle

we’re fixed so it’s not THAT something

One of my BFFs, Tanya, is a hair stylist, and between her jam-packed schedule and mine, it’s hard to get an appointment; seriously, it’s like aligning planets…so Tanya makes a house call for me every now and then, and I make us lunch. Today Tanya came over to put “just a few more” strands of

common name rewards

Hubs and I just got back from doing our major-heavy-duty-grocery-super-shopping. Power. Style. For those of you that don’t live in a tourist town, let me explain power style grocery shopping to you. We hurry to the closest (large) Walmart before the tourists arrive because they clog up the aisles with long-lost-third-cousins and loaded-down grocery carts,

to watch or not to watch

Hubs wanted to rent Divergent tonight but I said no. I’m in the midst of forcing Hubs to binge-watch The Killing on Netflix. Not hard-core-binge-watch. I mean, I let him go to work, run and eat… I don’t know if Hubs actually wanted to see Divergent, or if he just wants a break from Linden

sea monkey challenge

Along with stepping up my miles for the fourth (or fifth?) half marathon I’m running in seven weeks, I’m doing the 30 Day Plank Challenge this month. I’m planking a minute-a-day for eleven days until the challenge calendar exceeds my ability, and I’m doing my planks on my hands; because I can. As with any

just. like. that.

I saw this infogram on Facebook a few minutes ago and I was shocked. Horrified. Worried. Hubs and I LOVE to read, our boys are all avid readers (even as adults), and we all LOVE bookstores; in fact, new books were treats for our kids when they were little. How could somebody not love to

i think i know you

I met my new doctor today. Well, she’s not really a doctor, she’s a nurse with super powers, which is cool with me. I’m fine with her power, I just worried if I’d like her; if we’d click; if she’d get me, or if she’d think I was crazy. My old-man doctor of ten years

in sickness and health, but not vinegar

Have you ever seen that episode of Cheers where Rebecca finally decides to give it up to Sam? The one where she is all snotty and coughing and un-showered, with matted-bed-hair, unbrushed teeth, and sporting well-worn pajamas? Well. Last Wednesday night, I remembered that episode… I returned from my Chicago business trip last Monday with
