It looks like I’m rotting from the inside out, Lily Chin.

When I was in high school, my skin was highly imperfect. Sadly, when you take a girl who is already a bit of a social disaster (me! I was the piano playing introvert who always kept the words Boy and Friend separate!) and you tap her with a Yucky Skin stick, you end up with […]

I need help getting out of my dress pickle!

January 30th, 2010 · 70 Comments · Daily, Social Awkwardness

Okay, internet. You helped me before. Will you help me again? It looks as if the Pudding Family will be embarking on a situation that will require us to stand in front of over 100 people in church tomorrow morning. (We’re going to be singing “Eye of the Tiger.”) (Not really.) Anyway, because I rarely […]

Okay. Do you remember me telling you that I knitted hats and mittens for a few of the teachers at school? If you follow that link, pay special attention to the part about the coach who gets Meredith out of the car every morning with a smile and a “Good morning, Meredith!” Anyway, I made […]

This morning I dropped Meredith off at school, returned home with Harper, made coffee, started a load of laundry, plopped down onto the couch, and remembered that I haven’t pulled up Fluid Pudding in over a week. Whiny Paragraph: I barely made it through the evening of Meet the Teacher last week. Argh. I’m not […]

Which wert and art and evermore shall be!

June 7th, 2009 · 24 Comments · Cucumbers aren't always cool., Daily, Social Awkwardness

One of my goals for the remainder of 2009 is to incorporate Wert into my vocabulary. Any advice would be appreciated. On a similar note, I apparently created the word Morticum to replace Moratorium and have been using it incorrectly for at least a decade. No one has corrected me, and I’m mortified. Morticumified, even. […]

As you know, I got a new camera. And just like anyone who finds a new friend, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time getting to know her. The camera has been attached to me for the past seven days, and has clicked through quite a few car rides, cat jumps, bees on flowers, […]

The woman had bad roots, but I didn’t call her on it.

Yesterday morning I was a bit bummed out because Meredith has been having stomachaches that are a bit more like STOMACHACHES(!!!) and they hit her quickly and she immediately starts to cry and sometimes she throws up, and I would do just about anything to suffer through them for her. So anyway, she had a […]

The sound of children singing has always given me the creeps. Even when I WAS a kid, my flesh often crawled during the elementary concerts when I had to stand on the risers and sing with the other kids my age. Those scary movies that feature kids warbling hymns as the final credits roll? Yeah. […]

This morning I took a break from the freelance madness and ran to Sephora to stock up on the stuff that has run out. I had about fifteen minutes to spare, so I decided to go to the book store. However, I never made it there, because I tripped and nearly fell down, and then […]

When leaders act contrary to conscience, we must act contrary to leaders.

March 9th, 2009 · 27 Comments · Daily, Shorties, Social Awkwardness

When I pick Harper up at pre-school each day at 11:30, I sometimes get there early enough to see Meredith at recess. (One of my very favorite things to do is park the car, listen to a little This American Life, and watch Meredith running around with her friends. Sometimes I have hot tea with […]
