Not a Movie Review of Mad Max: Fury Road. Also? Flying Cats

Not a Movie Review of Mad Max: Fury Road. Also? Flying Cats

Hello and welcome to Mashup Meme Monday where I make it sound like I’ve been doing this meme forever when in fact it’s the first and probably the last time ever. I saw the nonstop roller coaster, guns and post-apocalyptic car chases, Fast-and-Furious-on-steroids event that is the new Mad Max: Fury Road. My one...

Sun lovers

It felt like a near-death experience. Me. Turbo kickboxing after eight months away. Burning chest, raspy breathing, nausea. And my chipper instructor was happily babbling about the weather. While I glared, I somehow absorbed her information: Low 90s th...

Why time flies

Why time flies

To some, me included, it’s a compelling mystery as to where the time goes. Especially while standing at the intersection of 50+ and EmptyNest-hood. I often asked myself: Is time moving faster, or am I moving slower? I really believe it’s a little of both. And I think I have finally figured it all...

It’s the little things

It’s the little things

There’s a little bench on a beautifully shaded street close to my office that often has a little “shrine” or homage displayed. Not big. Not flashy. Nothing blatant. For whom, I know not. Honoring what, I haven’t a clue. It may be a small bouquet of fresh-cut flowers, or a balloon, or a colorfully painted...

Hey! I’m back. By the skin of my teeth.

Hey! I’m back. By the skin of my teeth.

I have never been quite as lost as I was the past few months. I think it started with Mac’s hand injury on December 29. Maybe it doesn’t sound huge, but it was. Something about a 6 foot piece of sheet metal dropping 40 feet onto your best friend and husband, father of your...

I’ve got to hide the big brains somewhere, right?

My classmates and I were in the elevator after seminar one evening, for some reason talking about what body part we would change if we could. It was my turn but before I could answer, someone said "Your forehead, right?"Umm, no, but thanks for telling ...

A friendly note from the FAA

"What did you do?!" I exclaimed as Mr. T flipped through the mail and remarked that a manila envelope from the FAA was tucked in between the bills and junk.Now, I imagined that correspondence from the Federal Aviation Administration must have spelled s...

The view from a cot on Half Dome, or, my mom

My mom taught me that if you’re broke and possibly broken, the thing to do with your tax return check is to pack up your kids and drive north, up the coast of Oregon, Washington, all the way to British Columbia, fishing along the way. You go to those fancy gardens and ride a...

A man who makes me laugh

A man who makes me laugh

I was rinsing shampoo when Mr. T came into the bathroom, looking pleased as punch. I glanced at him and he pointed to the sink where he'd placed a container of mayonnaise. I looked at T and at the sink, and back to T wondering What on earth?I laughed a...

Hey teenage girls: You are not the worst

Hey teenage girls: You are not the worst

Recently I read (yet another) thread on Facebook that went like this: Main post: “Teenage boys are so hard.” Comments in thread: “You should be glad you don’t have GIRLS.” At least you don’t have GIRLS. OMG TEENAGE GIRLS. They are THE WORST. Insane, emotional, slutty little things. Mean. Irrational. I’m paraphrasing, but you...
