The Last Word

Despite regular threats to throw myself off the porch, which actually means grabbing a beer out of the garage fridge and heading to the front yard for a time out, I’m in no hurry to die, or overly curious about what happens “on the other side.” I’m just reminded of the topic now and...

Earthquakes: Still better than crappy weather

Earthquakes: Still better than crappy weather

I was born and raised in California. I’ve lived through my fair share of earthquakes both large and small…mostly small. Still, after living in the Midwest for almost a year and a half, I prefer to take my chances with an earthquake other than a blizzard or thunderstorm. Why? Because in the scheme of...

I thought age 4 would be better. I was wrong.

I thought age 4 would be better. I was wrong.

Georgia, age 4 (as of August 5), pretty much sees me in two ways: I need to be so close to you I’m literally sitting on your face; and I’m trying to figure out what exactly your purpose is here. We all know “terrible twos” was an invention by some prick who never had...

What’s up at the Weather Channel?

What’s up at the Weather Channel?

I confess. The Weather Channel used to be one of my favorite channels on TV. Used to be, in recent years, it’s gone insane. Last year, the Weather Channel and DirecTV had a fight, so for a while, I didn’t have The Weather Channel and honestly, I didn’t really miss it. Let me explain....

Don’t mind me, I’m just lost (in the existential sense, thanks)

Don’t mind me, I’m just lost (in the existential sense, thanks)

If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know I get lost sometimes. And then again. And again. But I don’t want to write about that. I’m tired of writing about that. I’ve written it all before. I don’t want to write about anything, really. And that’s not new. I’m sick of myself....

Freshmen on my Mind

Freshmen on my Mind

Freshman orientation is today. Since I have two of that variety in my household, the freshman experience is really on my mind lately.

I had just moved to a new town at the end of eighth grade, so I began my freshman year with one friend—my next door neighbor who was kind enough to...

Guardians of the Galaxy (Sneak Preview)

Last week I was lucky enough to see a sneak preview of Guardians of the Galaxy thanks to Living Smart Girl. She’s awesome. I believe briefly I met her at Bloggy Boot Camp when it was in Minneapolis last October, but I digress. Did I love it? Yes. Should you see it? Yes. Why?...

Obituary: Amana Coolzone, 1994?-2014

Jul 30, 2014

Today, we lay to rest a (formerly) cool, original (equipment) character. Born in a factory and raised installed in northern California around the time of the first Reagan Clinton administration, Amana lived only to serve others. At her most generous, … Continue reading
