Can’t we all just get along?

Politics Shmolitics!

No, I know we can’t.  It’s a naive wish, but one I don’t ever stop having. I am not a fan of politics.  This is largely because I feel that it has become nigh impossible to have civil discourse about the issues that appear to divide us. In some respects, I think politics has always […]

That bat makes you look fat.

We went to get rabies shots yesterday morning. Yup. Rabies. Remember that whole bat thing?  Well, apparently if you wake to bats in your bedroom when you’ve been sleeping, the right thing to do is to go get shots just in case: The bat managed to quietly and calmly crawl on some exposed area of […]

100 Word Songs: The Stranger

***Read the previous episode of Tom and Shelly here*** “I just can’t remember…” her voice trailed off, chasing the breeze. Tom did a golden retriever head-tilt. “You remember at least a bit, or you wouldn’t be this scared.” He watched as something subtle vacated Shelley’s face, a part of her retreating from his statement of […]

100 Word Songs: Peel Me A Grape

And… break. Wait for it. Feel his breath in his splayed fingers across the small of my back. Relax the taut, feel the floor, hear the music in the space in between. Smallest guidance. Barely there movement. Hint of a shift, my weightlessness in his arms. Repeat, repeat, repeat. The tap tap tap on the […]

I haven’t been around for a while, as you may or may not have noticed. I’ll pretend that you’ve all been waiting with bated breath to hear about what’s been going on, since believing that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. 🙂 Largely I’ve just been busy with work. Once upon a time my […]

A cat? No, a bat.

I often wake in the middle of the night. I’m one of those hippy parents who still nurses her toddler and co-sleeps, too.  So I have the joy (and that’s really only a slightly facetious word choice) of nursing G a couple of times a night. We have a communication system.  He makes a small […]

Bacon in my OJ?

That’s right, bacon. Before you get crazy, I’m not putting bacon in my juice.  You may wish to do so, I won’t stop you… but it’s not my thing. No, I just mean that by a weird happenstance of flavor chemistry and tastebud magic, I have figured out how to make my morning OJ taste […]

Thankful Tuesdays: PRD

It’s been a while since I’ve written about being thankful, so here goes. Today I’m thankful for PRD.  For those of you not in the know, that’s (P)ast (R)elationship (D)etritus.  PRD are items (tangible or intangible) that you are left with from previous relationships, either because the items were gifts, or weren’t worth taking by […]

Vacation from vacation?

One of the most annoying first-world problems?  The decompression needed after one returns from a vacation. M and G and I went to San Francisco for a week and a half, and man are our arms tired!  Wait, that isn’t how the joke goes? Picky picky. Seriously, we’re knackered.  Not because we did anything particularly […]

Gotye Making Mirrors Review

OK.  I feel like I’m the last one to arrive to the Gotye (AKA Wally De Backer) party, and not only that — almost everyone else has already gone home and I’m that latecomer who the host tries to prevent from coming in but can’t because they’re too drunk.  You know what I’m talking about. […]
