I love fall. It’s my favorite time of year. Post 9/11, fall officially begins on September 12th at my house. Americana and seashells get put away and the fall stuff comes out. I hate my mantel. It is a wacky, asymmetrical thing with a vaulted ceiling and a fireplace that is centered on the room, […]
Did you know that caffeine counteracts (or at least dilutes) the affect of Novocaine? Did you know that most dentists will forget to mention that? Did you know that if you drink coffee at 8:00 in the morning and go in to have an old filling replaced at 9:00, the standard of one shot of […]
My laptop got a virus and I had to shut it down immediately. I borrowed Handsome Hubby’s laptop, and the same virus popped up right away. Can human beings carry and transmit a computer virus? Hmmm. I couldn’t check my email. I couldn’t read blogs. I couldn’t post to mine. Do you think I used […]
There are things that just keep coming up and getting in the way of blogging. (And reading blogs that I like…) I promise to try to get my s**t together very soon. oy.
Things are crazy around here. I am feeling completely overwhelmed by all of the things on my to-do list. This past week had so much ridiculousness that I should have plenty to be writing about.

It’s been raining here. A lot. (photo credit: Sandor X. Mayuga) This isn’t my neighborhood, but it’s pretty representative of my little corner of the world. Stormy weather brings out my inner baker. According to the recipe, the cake I baked is called Sock It To Me Cake but I am going to re-name it […]
Living in the Los Angeles area, there’s lots of things I expect.Smog.Spotting celebrities at Starbucks.Violence.Traffic.Ridiculous housing prices.Car chases. You know what I don’t expect?Tornadoes. An earthquake I am prepared for. A tornado? I don’t have an interior room with no windows. Basements? We ain’t got no stinkin’ basements!I’m skeeeerd.
I’m tired. I’m cranky. I’m hungry. I feel fat. I screwed up my knee and can’t work out. I can’t find anything in my closet that looks good and/or fits. I desperately need a haircut and my stylist left the salon. I’m going to eat a handful of M&Ms and go back to bed.
