And that’s about the only good news.
I’d love to rant and rave about all KINDS of blog posts that I have written in my head as I go from one crisis to another, always 7-19 minutes late for everything, but I don’t have time. Charlie has to ref in about 30 minutes, Morgan has [...]
I needn’t belabor nature’s harsh pecking order. You know it, I know it. We can choose to close our eyes to the gore, to the unflinching honesty of it all. We can TURN THE CHANNEL. QUICK. TURN THE CHANNEL, dammit!
Why men love to linger, while surfing channels to utter distraction, on the bucolic [...]
What do you give the guy that has everything? No, that’s not quite right…
What do you give the guy who doesn’t want anything?
…No, that’s not quite right either. He always wants a jacket. He has a jacket fetish. We actually have an entire closet in our laundry room to house his collection.
It’s a catchy title, people. It wasn’t that bad.
But really, it was our worst showing ever, food-wise.
Lack-luster dishes and poor timing downgraded Chef Jennie and her line cooks from a coveted 3 star Michelin rating to two. In the aftermath of evening’s worst performance, the board was scrambling to make sweeping [...]
Watertown is a small place, so I assume Patty is well aware of my transgression by now. But apologizing is part of the twelve steps, so this is the public apology you, my frenetic stylist, deserve.
I have been unfaithful.
I have strayed from our ten year relationship. I had a delayed seven-year itch. [...]
You think I’m kidding?
I’m not. Pixi mascara doesn’t just look good, it is a time machine. It has opened doors I thought long closed. I, my friends, am a new person.
First, and most importantly, Pixi mascara allows me to stop manically curling my lashes. Before I discovered it, I would probably grab [...]
I had more flies yesterday. A lot more.
But when Ollie Cat came in looking for dinner around, oh, 2:30 pm — daylight savings is a real stretch for my 4-legged friends — and I didn’t respond to her meows, her sitting on my keyboard effing everything up, her move to a spot on [...]
BOO! Happy Halloween!
I am in the midst of window washing.
After a particularly (exhaustive? efficient? accomplished?) (i can’t think of the word . thank you menopause.) Saturday and Sunday of window washing last weekend, I took a break. I figured I should work on weekdays. And, to be honest, I’m mostly waiting for my [...]
Yes, it was my BIRTHDAY today!! And after last year’s dismal performance, this year shined brightly. It was a great day. The sun was actually visible!!! I got sunburned!!!
Anyway. I just had to share this gift that I got from my kids. And it wasn’t some, get-it-at-the-only-store-in-Watertown kind of thing. Morgan actually picked Charlie [...]
What an amazing discovery. All these amazingly cool and nice people read the stupid stuff I write. They actually cook some of the recipes I post. It’s utterly baffling.
And wonderfully flattering.
And very guilt provoking when I’m not timely at updating.
And terribly frightening. What horrible things have I written about again? Good thing [...]
