Me and My Public Self

I might be married to the law but it’s a known truth “I” am the law and if I had no hair you could call me Kojak.

September 17, 2014

Now, we all know I’m the law-breaker in my house and my husband is the law enforcer. He’s a deputy.  I’m not. Doesn’t matter.  I still feel, as a wife, it’s my duty to advise him the best way to do his job that he’s been doing about 25 years that I’ve never done a […]

Think you’re gonna be necking at my house? Think again, Mr.-I’m-So-Perfect-at-Being-Perfect.

Yes.  We bought an RV. I will be in a big, floppy hat most every weekend from now on. Keith will be in his mandals more than I ever in my life imagined I’d tolerate. And you’re sick of hearing about the RV and how Keith isn’t too hip on the idea of me plucking down pink flamingo yard […]

I always think it can’t get any worse and then I realize what an ass is in Spanish.

Sweet mother of all things travel-ly-ish, I have been on the road way too much for me. First, back home to see family and friends for the weekend only to be fashionably traumatized by my dude wearing his mandals on most of the trip. (Mandals = Man Sandals.  Get it?) About 2 days after that little […]

…and this is why you’ll probably ask yourself later, “Hmmm…why is she posting her resume’?”

Because the office sent out an email. And I responded. Which was my first mistake. I’ve worked with these people for nine heavenly years so they know me like a well-read-then-thoughtlessly-discarded-and-tossed-on-a-dusty-bookshelf-then-later-pulled-back-out-to-read-with-delight-again book. It’s their own fault if they’re ever shocked, surprised or caught off guard. Nothing should ever surprise them. (Sweet Mother of Corporate America…come on!  Nine years!) Though […]

I’m going back to my single ways because I’m done and I’m tired and I’m totally over it. And so are my skirts.

February 12, 2014

This is it. I’m done.  I’m tired.  I’m totally over it. And that’s usually the place in life where I gotta get before I realize nobody is gonna take care of crap for me and I’m apparently gonna have to do it myself. (And you call yourselves friends and family.) (Whatever.) A bed should not be […]

Living with ridiculous insanity has led to running faster than the big dog and getting off the pot.

Once upon a time…long, long ago…my husband uttered the words: (More like about 8 months ago when he said “I do” to such ridiculous insanity with me.) “Let’s promise each other we’ll always have a fun marriage.  And we’ll laugh.  A lot.” Well, alrighty then.  Challenge accepted. I have said for years, I don’t really like […]

The world has enough crap but could probably use a little more me. And a little more you. Trust me, here…I’m right.

Yo. Contrary to belief, I’m fairly low-key.  I tend to keep my crap to myself. Especially here.  In my little corner of the world. Because I think the world has enough bullying.  Enough shit-stirrers.  Enough politics.  Enough activism.  Enough protesting.  Enough opinions.  Enough dictating.  Enough do-it-my-way-or-else. It ain’t needed here.  You can find that shit easier […]

I have just proved I am not swanky enough to stay in swanky hotels because no matter where I am, my jackass-y-ness comes out. So, there.

Here’s a surprise:  I’m travelling for work. Again. But for the last time for a few months.  I’m pooped now, but will be ready to swing back in high gear in January when it all starts up again. (I know.  You don’t care.) If you drag around with me on Facebook, you’ve already seen this. […]

Who knew fru-fruey coffee and big burly men go together like me and a big ol’downtown city?

Remember Green Acres?  (Lie if you have to.) That TV show from way back with Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor? Green Acres is the place to be Farm livin’ is the life for me Land spreadin’ out so far and wide Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside New York is where I’d rather stay […]

I can’t help it but it hurts me more than it hurts you that I can’t just say what I have to say and move on but instead I just go on and on and on and…

“Hey, Diane…it’s Carrie.  Over in Business Development. Uh, yeah.  I was at a meeting in El Paso for the last couple of days with Bill, you know Bill in your department, and anyway he asked me to “give Diane this little interoffice mail packet” when I see her.  I told him I see or talk […]
