Me and My Public Self

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. […]

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 […]

All that was old was young again. For one night. Except the wig. It’s still old.

Mom Dad

So. Let me think. Hmmm. What to do, what to do? Let’s see. If your Mom is turning 65 and your Dad decides he wants to throw her a party…just what kind of party should he throw? Hmmm… Let me start with this little bit of info:  It is rather conservative to say that my […]

Now, I don’t suggest you pick a fight with a chicken but if you do…just know it’s gonna totally turn your day around.

Here’s something I learned yesterday: Do not pick a fight with a chicken. (You’ll look like a full-blown jackass.) (YOU will. Not me. It’s now accepted from me.) It’s rare I have rough days but sweet mother of all things in the universe that hate me…yesterday was the sweet-mother-of-all-things-in-the-universe-that-hate-me day. But that ain’t the big […]

Somehow, I end up getting more at home when I’m not at home. Coincidence? I think not.

August 19, 2013

Apparently, they expect me to do more than tell others how to do their job and re-apply lipgloss at the work joint. I’m just now getting back on the travel wagon and will be somewhere within the Texas borders for 2 days every other week for a few months. (I’m elated.) (Seriously. Room service. A […]

And to think I thought the Beach Boys would really give a rats ass about my bangs.

It was a dark and stormy night. The rain was pounding. The clouds were churning and the thunder was growling. The skies were angry. Angry, I tell you. Angry like a redhead who was at war with nature. Why? I’ll tell you, my friend: BECAUSE WE’VE HAD NO RAIN FOR MONTHS AND THIS OUT-OF-ITS-MIND-STUPID-ASS RAIN […]
