What Are Your Pet Predicaments?

There are a lot of predicaments in life that I’ve avoided. You might call it being overly cautious; I prefer to call it simple mindfulness of consequences. True, it must be acknowledged that luck played a part sometimes. Even though I was always more careful than most, in my younger years I could have become … 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. That was quite a little ride, though! For a casual, personal little blog like mine, the pace got a bit crazier … Continue reading

Tiffany, Have Joaquin Bring the Car ‘Round

Brad and I have been fantasizing lately about having a maid, a butler, and a driver. I think we’re the perfect people to employ household help. In other words, we’re lazy. The only thing missing is some family money for us to fritter away. Damn glitches! I’m not sure what Brad would have the butler … Continue reading

New Meaning of “Killer Workout”

See this? That’s the handlebar of my “new” stationary exercise bike getting ready to sock me in the boob, or face, or some other upper-body location it’s not supposed to be touching. A few days ago I started hunting around for an exercise bike to use while I’m watching TV as a lower-impact way to … Continue reading

Debriefing on Vegging Out, Day 1

I’m not sure how often I’ll be doing food confessions. Probably not all the time because I’d like to keep some readers if I can. However, since this was the big kickoff, here’s the rundown on what I lived on today: This morning I had coffee with TJ’s soy creamer and sugar, then some whole-wheat … Continue reading

Three Months of Vegging Out, Day 1

Happy September, everybody! I’m off on my latest new beginning. On today’s to-do list: going shopping for some groceries, supplements, and other supplies that I’ll need for this project. I’m currently fueled by the following: Plus coffee (well,┬áduh…). In my effort to keep my food plant-based, I checked the label of this bread and it … Continue reading

Going Cold Tofurky

September 1 is this Saturday. I LOVE September, mainly because it means the relentless scorching hell that is August is finally over. Like a lot of people, I always want to make a fresh start when the “-ember” months arrive. The heat fatigue starts to lift and there’s an exhilarating crispness in each morning that … Continue reading

Bed Made, Now Lying In It

Pardon my French, but as I gathered up my still-hot morning coffee and trudged angrily back into the house just a few minutes ago, this came spitting off of my tongue: “Fine, neighbors, I hope you come out for your f*cking morning bong rips and can’t take them in peace because my f*cking dogs are … Continue reading

Dietary Derailment: Getting Back On Track

The best way to describe my eating habits of late would be COMPLETELY OFF THE RAILS. Every once in a while this happens. One day I’m having a little of this, a little of that, and before you know it I’m having as much as I want of whatever decadent, artery-clogging gut filler that sounds … Continue reading
