Not Nifty; More Like Horrible

OK, I’m back. I’m not reporting anything “nifty,” like I promised, though. Quite the opposite. It’s about the news. All I can think of every time one of these lunatics shoots up a place is when is it going to be my turn to try and dodge bullets? My family’s turn? When is it going … Continue reading

:-x

There are some things I love. I love dogs (especially mine);¬†Wild, the memoir by Cheryl Strayed; walking in beautiful surroundings; lounging around in posh hotel lobbies; Dwight Yoakam; Led Zeppelin; the local bowling alley bar; shopping; having lunch with my mom; taking road trips with my husband; sitting around a campfire; cooking yummy food; hilarious … Continue reading

Please Stand By

I seem to have lost interest in blogging for the moment–or at least in this blog. Maybe my brain is too full of other stuff right now. I dunno. Something will happen eventually. I’ll keep you posted!

It’s also a good distraction when I’m short on funds and can’t afford to risk actually going out and browsing … Continue reading

Great idea, right? I know! The name could be Food … Continue reading

Seeing Past the Pink Cowboy Hat

I think my fifteen minutes is over. Whew. My post has worked its way off the bottom of the Freshly Pressed page and things are starting to calm down into a manageable state again.

Stop the Presses! I Mean, Don’t Stop the Presses!

I’m freaking out, everybody! ….as opposed to, “I’m freaking out everybody!” Note the importance of a well-placed comma, as opposed to the errant comma I left in my Freshly Pressed post, “Oh, Please Do Tell Me About What You’re Not Selling.” Very similar to the more familiar, “Let’s eat, Grandpa,” vs. “Let’s eat Grandpa” example. … Continue reading
