I didn’t like the color pink for most of my life. I love it now. If it’s pink in this household, it may as well be radioactive… the boys won’t touch my iPod, my hairbrush, my toothbrush, my jacket, etc…. Pink is a great defense mechanism at my house. I was a tomboy growing up. […]
Where have I been? Well, eating bon-bons and watching my soaps, of course.
OK! Got the new camera figured out… I think. To recap the past few weeks, in order: Halloween; Bathroom Remodel at the Cabin (still not finished… Can you say “Pee in the woods”?); Conner’s birthday (bowling & pizza); hosted Bunco for 15; organized team soccer party; threw surprise birthday party for 35 people; hosted Thanksgiving […]
Horrible and beautiful all at once.
My friend Eva and her daughter, Kaya, are in this music video. I don’t know who the singer is, or how Eva knows him. All I know is that by the time this video was over, I was crying like a baby.
I’m glad he likes my friends…
Grant has a crush. I’m talking a full on, must think about her all the time, infatuation with my friend Jodi C. I’m on the phone: “Are you talkin’ to Jodi?” We drive past a park: “I can go there with Jodi!” My phone rings: “Is that Jodi?” Out of the blue: “I think Jodi […]

Well how do they make sno-cones then?
We have a good friend who is a police officer. From time to time we hear funny “on the job” stories. This is definitely my favorite:Once he was part of a team serving a search warrant for drugs in a house. As part of that drug search, pretty much every stone is overturned during the […]
Hooray for Hollywood
My best friend, Eva, has a role in the new Samuel L. Jackson movie, Lakeview Terrace. This looks really good… I’d see this even if Eva wasn’t in it. I believe she plays an Internal Affairs officer who looks into the complaints about Jackson’s character. It opens September 19th.So, um, go see it.
Hi. My name is Vivienne and I play bunco.
OK, I play bunco. It’s cliche. It’s suburban housewife-y. It’s fun. The girls get together, we drink wine, we talk, we laugh, (sometimes we even remember to play bunco). All for a buy in of $10. (Personally, I like it when it’s my turn to host bunco because it forces me to clean the house […]
Litter-Bugs, Lifeguards & Severed Heads.
Litter-Bugs Let me preface this by telling you that a few weeks ago I yelled at a teenage girl who was driving like an idiot. I saw her in my rearview mirror, weaving in and out of traffic on Los Alamitos Blvd and coming up fast. She whipped around my car and ended up to […]
Hey Dave! Welcome to California!
You know, I’d been meaning to plan something exciting to do while Dave was here, but didn’t have any good ideas. Mother Nature took care of the excitement for me. 5.4 earthquakes centered 25 miles away make for a lively conversation topic. A little somethin’ he can tell the folks back home about! Pictures off […]
