A little drafty

Something important happened last night. I finished the first draft of my novel. Well, perhaps we shall say “finished” in that I got to the end and wrote the final scene, all as part of the NaNoWriMo push. Long time readers may remember (and let’s face it, all this blog ever attracts are long time […]

Slurm for all!

We went through an entire summer of experimenting with Sugar-Free Kool-Aid replacements. Using the unsweetened stuff with Splenda was crazy. Splenda is light and fluffy, like Hollywood snow, and it doesn’t want to mix into our giant Kool-Aid pitcher. It refuses. It says “Unhand me, madam, I said good day!”and then makes a huge mess […]

The roof. The roof. The roof is on fire.

Did you guys know that things break on houses? It’s absolutely true. But did you know that they all conspire to break at the same damned time? Also completely true. Case in point: Casa Bix tried to pretty much mutiny over the past several weeks. We were feeling pretty good about ourselves, actually, so we […]

Setting myself on fire

On top of all of the crap going on in my personal life, I also got a call a few days ago from the SVP that started out with “So, they’re eliminating your role before 2011…”. I shouldn’t be stressed by it, as I know damned well that they are still going through the corporate […]

A short critical dissertation on the prevalence of happy fairy candy

I have lost some weight. Not a lot of weight, certainly not bucket loads of weight like my friend Anne, who writes the incredible Body of Work diary that’s part of the new Elastic Waist thingy (which, by the way, is where I’m updating three times a day Monday through Friday like clockwork, although sometimes […]

Guest entry from Esteban

Esteban thinks that he’s not a writer, but he sent me a link to an entry on his own blog and I beg to differ. Out of courtesy, we don’t read each other’s blogs unless the other specifically sends a link, and out of the same courtesy, I’m not going to give you a link […]

Curiously Strong

(Driving home from getting coffee on Sunday morning) Weetabix : Look at how that chick is running. Esteban : Aw, be nice. She’s getting some exercise! Weetabix : If you run like a spaz, maybe jogging in public isn’t the best idea. Esteban : Maybe I should stop the car and we can get out […]

Food Porn

Esteban and I have a Sunday morning ritual that usually involves him making breakfast (the man is a master egg wrangler… his scrambled eggs have an artful consistency that I’ve never been able to duplicate. My omelets are supreme, but overall, he owns the egg oeuvre), coffee, a newspaper and our collective heckling of the […]

Voulez vous

  I should have guilt for not having done a real entry in something like forty-two days. I should, but I don’t. Lessee, what happened’ Remember the whole ‘Will I lose my job?’ thing followed by the ‘No, we’ve saved your job, but everyone else should pay no attention to the man behind the curtain […]

Organic experience

  I know that just about everyone loves Elton John’s ‘Tiny Dancer’. The Ben Harper version is spectacular, in fact. But the song has always kind of creeped me out. ‘Now she’s in me’ always with me’ Tiny Dancer in my hand’. Is it just me? I kind of get an Ed Gein vibe out […]
