Public Service Announcement

July 21, 2010


This is your mom. This is your mom on 3 hours sleep. Any questions? You may be too young to remember, but that series of words always brings to mind an egg sizzling in a frying pan. It was the dawn of public service announcements regarding dangers of drugs, and yes, that was my brain. […]

Who knew?

June 25, 2010


I have been trying strenuously¬†to reform this part of my character (the laughing part). For a long time. Sometimes I’m less than successful. Somewhere in scripture it says something along the lines of “those who laugh at others and call them fool will be in danger of hellfire.” I’m stinkin hot all the time already […]

Inconvenience Me

June 17, 2010


Slow cars. Daft customer service. Dim employees. Crafty kids. People who cut through your yard. Kids who whack flowers as they walk thoughtlessly by. Telephone menus (okay, let me uncross my eyes.) Life is filled with inconveniences. Waiting. Explaining, again. People who need help. Actually (I’m told I say this a lot), the “people who […]

Medusa Morning

June 14, 2010


The wrong side of the bed. I don’t often wake up there, but it happens. Today was the lottery day. What turns an ordinarily agreeable and usually sunny person into Medusa? I have no idea. Waking up from a dream in which I was trying to strangle someone and being maddeningly unsuccessful may have had […]

Roll over Beethoven

June 10, 2010


My brain is fried and when that happens, the only thing to do is what we do with fried things … pass the catsup. Here is a light helping of light-heartedness. Silly, but sometimes that’s just what one needs. Apparently, a 1st grade school teacher presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of […]

As seems inevitably to happen when I’ve been feeling magnanimous, and chosen to place it on paper or in cyberspace, it is quickly followed by an episode of snarky. Humility training, I suppose. My subconscious reminding me that, Mother Teresa, I am not. Snarky used to be a way of life for me, to a […]

Can’t hear myself think – that’s what I was doing, right?

May 28, 2010


Written, as you guessed, a little while ago. Now I spend all my time on the phone and have four phone numbers. I think I’ve gone completely over to the dark side. Still don’t text fast enough to remember the beginning of the sentence by the time I’m halfway through, though … I would like […]

Laughing Gas

May 27, 2010


I can only handle so much serious, and five hours of writing an analysis of a legal situation is enough for today. I’m probably covered on “serious” until next June. A colleague commented, when he mailed his analysis in to our instructor at the end of that grueling test, that root canals sometimes last that […]
