Sometimes you have to settle for “standard human”

Sometimes you have to settle for “standard human”

I have backed myself into a corner with this “truth-telling” thing. Here, on this blog. You know, there really is no such thing in writing. As soon as the words come out they are untrue, because they seem to contain the whole, but they are never the whole. They appear but are never complete,...

California Drought: 10 Ways to Save Water

The fight is real, but mommy wars are not

The fight is real, but mommy wars are not

You know what else I’m done with? “Mommy wars.” But not in the way you think. Oh, yes, we should all “support” each other. We should all “stop judging.” Support! Fuck support. Well, wait. Not really.
