Alive, yesh alive. No Romanians or Russians or any other eastern bloc types have done me under.  And thank you so much for asking!  Sadly, I have just been AWOL. Thank fully, Amanda of the the sassy, fantabulous, super bubble poptastic Southern Unbelle” has put me in the box. 2 minutes of shame and them [...]

The Sears Portrait Studio is No More. But it Was So Real.

The big news this weekend wasn’t whether your bracket got busted, because I suspect a fair number of you had Michigan-Louisville headed to the Finals. And it probably wasn’t gossip over why I pulled the book off Createspace/Amazon after one day of offering it for sale, because everyone knows that you can’t sell a book [...]

Oopsy! Shall We Play a Game?

Ed: I changed the name of this post, after looking for a “War Games” image on google, under a search for “want to play a game”.  Apparently I got the pop culture reference wrong…and now I will have SAW/Porn nightmares for the next damn month. When I was looking for amazing Craig’s list bargains on [...]

How Do You Solve a Problem like N. Korea?

Finally! A post that has nothing to do with EQ Prep. Caveat: this is all stream of conscious. Sometimes a blogger needs a warm up post to get themselves back into the swing. I am not even correcting typos for fear of disrupting the flow of my addled little head. You have been warned. OK, [...]

Gawd, I love the LA marathon. Third Sunday of March, the city of Los Angeles runs the most fabulous route through our “fair” city, and her neighbors. From Dodger Stadium, through Hollywood, WeHo, Beverly Hills,  finishing on Ocean Blvd. in Santa Monica near the Pier. What I love most about this marathon, is that the [...]

People Suck, Or Do They?

As you know, my faith in humankind is mortally wounded,  mostly dead.  Someone is constantly shoveling dirt into the grave as my faith cries “I feel better, I think I’ll go for a walk now”. If I were a celebrity, I would be Brigitte Bardot and hide at my no kill animal shelter, saving animals [...]
