My Brain Hurts

I’ve been trying lately to really engage my brain more and learn more. I’ve always had curiosity about the world, and I figured it was time to engage that curiosity. So, when I don’t know about something, I go read about it. Lots of Wikipedia reading. Thinking about finding my friend library card so I […]

An Open Letter to the Dirty Dishes

Dear Dirty Dishes, You’ve been in the company sink for the last week, at least. You’re not getting washed. I don’t know who placed you there, perhaps in a hurry to get to a meeting, with good intentions to come back and wash you. Sadly, those intentions were not followed-through on, and there you sit, […]

A Friend Like That…

Cheesy as it sounds, I was watching old Will and Grace reruns tonight on Lifetime TV, and saw a commercial for their new show “Side Order of Life.” The blonde lady is dating someone new, and she says “If something is too good to be true, it probably is.” Her best friend just looks at […]

Over the weekend we found a young cat in our yard. Very cute – orange and white. After his owners didn’t claim him within the first 24 hours, I started calling him McLovin. Mostly because he was such a happy cat, he’d just purr any time he got close to a person. Then in an […]

Why I'm Giving Up Handshakes

I’m seriously giving up shaking hands with new people after reading the latest story from Discovery Health about men and handwashing. One-third of men didn’t bother to wash after using the bathroom, compared with 12 percent of women, said the researchers, who spied on people in public restrooms. They reported their latest findings Monday at […]

Sometimes I do stupid girl stuff. This weekend I did (at least) 2 stupid girl things. 1 – I cleaned my house top to bottom because I thought someone was coming over. When said someone canceled, I cried. I’m not really sure why – I’m typically not much of a cryer, but I couldn’t help […]

If, God forbid, something were to happen to one of my cute, lovable and friendly pets, and I were to get a new pet, I think I would name it Crisis. I think its a great name because then I could say that “I need to get home to take care of my Crisis,” and […]

How Much Do We Really Need?

After all my delays, and much ado about all of that, the airline neglected to get my luggage to the airport at the same time they got me there. After my mini-breakdown in the lobby, the very nice hotel desk staff gave me a toothbrush, some toothpaste, and a comb. And 5 q-tips. I could […]

(Note: This blog was written on a small legal pad, mostly sitting in DFW Airport. This is just the transcription of those pages. ) 1:30 PM. I arrived at the Amarillo Airport. I check in my luggage and make my way to find a diet Coke. If only I knew then what I know now. […]
