Also, the Alabama thing should not have been so close. So much work to do.

This week has been a sulky weirdo. Monday was the fourth anniversary of the death of my friend Joan. Yesterday was the third anniversary of the death of Ramona Quimby. The house where I grew up was demolished sometime in the past few days. (I miss my friend and my cat and I knew the […]

Saturday!

This morning after dropping Harper off for her ACT, I killed an hour at one of my favorite coffee dumps. (For the curious: I had hot Earl Grey and a copy of Sing, Unburied, Sing.) The couple seated behind me talked about one of the most recent school shootings. The man in the comfy chair […]

So much. So little.

It’s December 4th, and what have I learned? When I am using the internet to figure out how to make hash, I should specify that I’m talking about root vegetable hash. Along with the Russian hookers who won’t stop spamming my comments, I’m now receiving subtle hints that I should probably get some cannabis and a […]

Of the seven dwarfs, the only one who shaved was Dopey.

How long will it take for the Russian hookers to stop spamming my comments? I haven’t said Yes to one Russian hooker, yet they continue to linger. Persistent little buggers. (The hookers have been following me around for two months, and I lack the energy to do anything about it. Also, I think it’s okay […]

Stay tuned, because you know Harper Lee will make an appearance.

So, here it is. November 9th. Have I been full on participating in NaNoWriMo? Of course not, because 4,000 words each day is impossible for someone as sleepy as me. BUT, I have been writing, and I’m now enrolled in a writing class and I haven’t loss focus, so: Success! The best part of NaNoWriMo […]

Not NaBloPoMo: Day 1

November 1st, 2017 · 4 Comments · Daily

This is about as far as I go for Halloween. Have I told you about those socks? The artist dyes them so that if you knit at gauge, ghosts appear. So much magic in this world. Speaking of magic, I finished this self-confidence hat last week to wear during my seven hour pizza booth shift […]

Not unless I see you first.

I finished this book and I finished this shawl. Jeff and I celebrated our 16th anniversary by sharing a pretzel at a high school football game. Henry is practicing a new smile—one that puts his bottom teeth on display. Meredith will be receiving her first pair of Dr. Martens for Christmas. Harper is just happy […]

This is my rock and roll love letter to you.

This is where I would go to beat my head against the floor when I was three years old. (I stopped beating my head against the floor after accidentally ramming my eye into my fancy patent leather shoe. The black eye forced me to find a new way to throw tantrums.) This is where my […]

The marching band refused to yield.

All of my friends from college spent time with me on the football field. I know I’ve mentioned my Marching Mizzou career at least once. (I just used the word Career. To me, the word Career is like the word Woman. Have we ever talked about the adult words that I’m not yet ready to embrace […]

Acting funny, but I don’t know why.

Things are happening on this end. First off, I believe my comments are being hacked by Russians, and that probably isn’t true at all, but I *am* getting entirely too many meaningless comments and links from someone whose name looks Russian and I’m not even going to use the word collusion here because even seeing […]
