So, I had a random, small happy moment today. I logged into my Google documents (where all kinds of things are stored, from my personal to-read lists and quote collections to our online inventory spreadsheet for work), and discovered that Google Docs got a facelift! Since I use Google Docs a fair amount, their changes […]

Why I'm Giving Up Food

Yes, you read that right. I think I’m giving up food. In the past week, I’ve had more “bad food” experiences than I’d like to recall – including at least 3 incidents of cold chicken from well-known (and often well-liked) restaurants. Maybe I shouldn’t get chicken – and maybe grilled chicken is especially prone to […]

Like most people early in their careers, I’m still trying to figure out how to “make it.” How to make it better, how to make it bigger, and some days, just how to make it through. Earlier this week, when reading one of the bezillions of newsletters that I get, an article stood out – […]

I got to spend this weekend with one of my best friends ever. We had some adventures (hiking around Red Rocks in the dark, hoping there weren’t snakes), and some really interesting moments of laughter (like the beer lady… enough said.) Of course, there were moments of struggle (“Why are you being a little b*tch […]

As I was listening to the radio this morning, as I nearly always do, a new, interesting ad came on – for a latex clothing store. It had some of that swanky music in the background, and mentioned “you know you feel sexy in latex.” Their latex items come in a variety of colors, including […]

"The" Brandi

I don’t have the most common name on the planet. In most situations, I’m the only Brandi around. Growing up, there wasn’t a time when someone else in the class had the same name that I do. Later, it was like I was notorious. People meet me and they go “Oh… so you’reBrandi…” Like they’d […]

Hills… and things that roll down them.

Things roll down hills. All kinds of things. Rocks, people, rivers… oh, and the infamous “shit.” Shit rolls downhill. … and I, my friends, seem to be in the biggest valley of the year. (On the other hand, isn’t that a cool picture? I had to find something neat to counter-act the mental image that […]
