SMILE!

So, the time has come. After a year of putting it off, I am having two wisdom teeth (TEEF) extracted sometime this summer.  I say “sometime” because my consultation is somewhere around June 12, and after that, THEN I get to schedule it. Bluh.  Granted, I am READY to get these suckers out.  Top and…

Dawg Days, Issue #1

“Taking dog-shaming photos to the Next Level.” Intro: I love the Fables comics.  A lot.  One of my favorite of favoritest things from the Jack of Fables series are the 1-page bits with the miniature Babe the Blue Ox, who has a Very Active Inner Life. It struck me about a month ago that my…

Sweet L’il Angeline

I had a really, really hard time getting this post started. The reason for this was that the Subject Matter of this entry kept wanting to snuggle.  Now she’s all crashed out at the opposite end of the couch so I’m taking the opportunity while I can get it. At the start of this year,…

2015, Adieu

Wow. I wrote a whopping eight blog posts this year.  There are myriad reasons for my ongoing silence.  The biggest one is that I spend every day in this high-intensity situation and by the time I get home I have no desire to look at another computer or exert the extra energy toward another obligation….

Katrina: The Big One-Oh

Saturday mornings are a quiet realm in my neighborhood. Well, early Saturday mornings are. I woke up at 6:30 a.m. today and couldn’t go back to sleep, so I’ve been porch-dwelling for an hour inside this cocoon of silence. Watched the sun rise from behind the Bald Cypruss tree that has, now, swallowed my front…

Set it up on Twitter so that they’re one of your favorites, and you’ll get notifications on your phone when they post something. When they make a Drop, they post a photo of a piece of art created by one…

Mardi Gras Part 1: Delusional!

Well, hello there world! Greetings from the other side of Mardi Gras. I am laughing so hard right now at my first Mardi Gras post of the year, whereupon I shared my excitement and overwhelmedness about being busy preparing for my FIRST EVER PARADE. I’m not laughing because it was ridiculous or otherwise laughable. I’m…

Greetings From Gotham

So, our Mardi Gras season got even more full this past week than when I wrote about it last time.  This past week, we were prompted by friends to go to the 610 Stomper Superball, and we got a hookup on tickets, and so we went. And THEN, my house guests for the first weekend…

Whereupon It All BEGINS

Hail! The Twelve Days of Christmas have come and gone, and upon that Partridge’s last resounding squawk from the boughs of its Pear Tree, Twelfth Night emerged upon us and, at long LAST, that most glorious of seasons began, the season that inspires one to truly and fully realize what a delightfully weird and incredible…
