I like them. I really, really like them.

November 30, 2011

If I can choose who I get my pat on the backs from, I’m gonna always choose to get them from someone who “gets me.” Ya’ll know it’s huge to me when someone “gets me.” Mark at Yelling Near You straight-up gets me. I read his blog every time he puts  up something new.  He […]

I am no longer interested in dating dude’s with cats and I now need a new mouse.

November 29, 2011

Unless some really nice guy who can pay his own bills because he has a steady job and believes in love comes knocking at my door…I’m not sure it’s gonna happen. Yes.  I certainly hope to one day meet a nice guy who has more to him than a job.  But really, my standards are […]

If I’m not full of gumbo, messy and fighting for the remote, I’m not home for the holidays.

November 27, 2011

Since the holidays are finally underway, I’m ready to share that little rejected ditty I sent to that magazine a few weeks back. (I know.  I hate that word now, too.) They wanted an essay of 500 words or less on what Home for the Holidays meant to me. So, I told’em.  The cold, hard […]

Aggravating the family and playing games…that’s what I’m thankful for.

November 24, 2011

Thanksgiving Day is a holiday set aside each year for giving thanks to God for blessings received during the year and is celebrated through feasting and prayer. That’s what Wikipedia says. Nice enough. For some maybe. For me, it’s just another holiday to aggravate my family and see my mom gaze at my dad with […]

It’d only be worse if it were a man calling me Kelly. When, yeah…I’m not Kelly.

November 22, 2011

I was totally wrong. Rejection is some serious suckage.  That, I was right about. But there IS something even worse than being rejected by not being rejected at all. And that would be…being rejected with the WRONG NAME. That magazine I submitted the little holiday essay to back earlier in the month? Yeah, they responded. By replying to my […]

This crap is serious but it ain’t funny. So go fold the clothes still in the dryer.

November 19, 2011

If you’re looking for funny stuff this time, you’re not gonna find it here.  Go on and fold those clothes that are probably still in the dryer or clean out that toilet instead. This is some serious crap for me here.  And this will be one of the rare times I’m serious. So, mark it […]

My night of being totally hip. Maybe not ‘totally’ but enough so not everyone else knew I wasn’t.

November 18, 2011

It’s always those last minute, “Hey, what’re you doing Thursday night” plans that totally turn out better than if they were planned. My phone at the work joint rang on maybe Monday, I think, with that question on the other end. Me:  “Uh, a lot of nothing.  Why?” It was then I got the invite to […]

There could have been hot firemen and a news crew. Don’t judge.

November 15, 2011

So, Sunday was kind of a long day.  Race for the cure…getting up at 4:30…boo hoo hoo. I don’t like saying I’m lazy, but I don’t like paying taxes either.  Truth hurts. I did nothing Sunday.  But nap.  Twice. Don’t judge. After taking in all that beauty rest and then going to bed fairly early, […]

I had no clue they made 4:30 am…but I know now.

November 13, 2011

4:30 a.m. I know. I didn’t even know they made that hour anymore.  But, apparently they do. I was up. Barking at nobody but the darkness around me, but I was up. Today was the Race for the Cure in Austin, and well…somebody caught me at a weak moment 3 months ago and I said […]

We’re all idiots and we all think we all need instructions. But what if it’s an idiot who writes the instructions?

November 12, 2011

Admit it.  People think people are idiots. It’s true.  We all do.  There are plenty who I think are idiots and I can assure you, there are puh-lenty who think I am.  Hell, even I admit to that some times. Therefore, everyone thinks they need to supply instructions for everyone else on how to do […]
