These Days: A story in (mostly) quotations.

September 13th, 2018 · 3 Comments · Daily

John Waters said, “Remember: You must participate in the creative world you want to become part of.” Similarly, if you surround yourself with toxic people, their toxicity seeps into you regardless of your fabric content. Don’t hang with the lady bullies when the world is in need of joy finders. Similarly, dogs eventually start looking […]

No, Cory Booker. *I* am Spartacus!

Wear your Nikes or don’t wear your Nikes and set them ON FIRE (or donate them to the homeless) or go buy more pairs. Be OUTRAGED by the NYT Op-Ed or be giddy about it or maybe familiarize yourself with the 25th Amendment. (My Petra sweater is coming along nicely.) I haven’t worn Nikes since […]

The high school marching band is hosting a used book sale along with their craft fair on December 1. To help build inventory for the book sale, several of us have been heading to other book sales around town to gather free book donations. Last night I headed to a book sale for their NFPO […]

Earthquake Starts With EAR

The man who sold a Hershey bar to me was wearing a name tag that said “Al, Pinch Hitter.” Because I need new glasses, I read it as “Al Pinch Hitler.” which then became “I’ll Pinch Hitler.” I started this sweater. Its top-down and stripes are starting to happen and I’ll Pinch Giuliani. Nobody wants […]

She smells the yarn and rubs it under her chin and on her neck.

Although I have voted in every single election at the same polling place since we moved into the house in 2014, today they couldn’t find my name in the system. Could it be because I told them I want a democratic ballot? Probably not. Could it be because we are flying a HRC flag at […]

Five Joys: The “5 Months Until Christmas” Edition

My Veggetti. I’ve been noodling up some zucchini, sautéing in a bit of olive oil, sprinkling on some Penzeys Mural of Flavor, tossing on a handful of tomatoes, and: Dreamy Dinner from My Veggetti! (You are the only one with a mind in the gutter right now.) Similarly, refried beans. I heat up an entire can […]

List of Middle-Age White Lady Accomplishments, July 1 to July 12

1. I ordered and received my calendar for 2018-2019 school year. I transcribed all school events, birthdays, and appointments into the new calendar with bright red ink from Japan. I messed up/scratched out more than 10 times, which led me to consider ordering a new calendar, but then I remembered that Only God Is Perfect. […]

Pride (In the Name of Love)

July 3rd, 2018 · 1 Comment · Daily

We saw quite a few types of people at St. Louis’s PrideFest a few weeks back, and I believe I would have given any of them a kidney (but only if they NEEDED a kidney, as I have only one to give). I would even give the Repent and Believe guy my kidney, but I […]

Don’t nobody bring me no bad news.

A few months ago, a friend asked if I was busy on the evening of June 25 because she won tickets to see The Wiz at The Muny and wanted to invite me. Because Harper is still out of town and the only other thing going on was my “We’re Halfway to Christmas” celebration (It […]

Agitated and Aghast

June 21st, 2018 · 5 Comments · Daily

We dropped Harper off at camp nearly two weeks ago and we’ll pick her up after eight more sleeps. Having her gone is weird, but knowing she’ll come home with a handful of new friends and a deeper understanding of American Sign Language makes everything worth everything. (Her three week camp involves an expedited college […]
