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!

How Pinteresting

I’m an image junkie and a compulsive scanner. Since I joined Pinterest I’ve been saving a ton of money on magazines.

That was quite a little ride, though! For a casual, personal little blog like mine, the pace got a bit crazier … Continue reading

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

Call the Doctor–I Feel Fine

The past few days I have been traipsing through foreign territory. In other words, I’ve been in an unflappable, go-with-the-flow, relaxed and happy mood. I’ve felt like I’ve been firing on all cylinders. Today I’m even typing with more speed and accuracy than usual. My brain has been practically buzzing with ideas and my emotions … Continue reading
