Thanks for the Memories, Quickie

Donald Driver announced that he is retiring. #80 spent all fourteen of his seasons with the Green Bay Packers.  He will make the official announcement on February 6 at Lambeau Field. Donald Driver was a fan favorite, long before Dancing With the Stars. The sports radio talking heads will argue over whether he was the […]

Joe Flacco said the “R” Word…People Were Offended…And Why Some People Still Miss The Point

Joe Flacco, QB for the Baltimore Ravens, said the R word and of course, Twitter was all, well, a-twitter about it.  The reactions fell into the usual camps:  Those who don’t like the “R” word and see it as a pejorative and those who think people should lighten up, it’s just a word, freedom of […]


Monday Listicles-Childhood Dreams

Hello!  For this week’s list of ten, the topic is 10 Things You Thought You Would Do/Be as a child.  Like our lovely hostess, Stasha, I just celebrated a birthday.  While I just looked back twenty-five years between now and 1988 and explained the differences (like a Commodore 64 then vs, the iPad now), this […]


My Annual Self-Indulgent Obligatory Birthday Post

For the last couple of years, I’ve taken to waxing philosophic in this very space on my birthday about getting older. I’ve written about how I don’t feel old and I’ve even written a birthday letter to my younger self. I woke up this morning and realized that this year, I didn’t have anything to […]


Whoever Said Patience is a Virtue Has Never Stared Into the Cold, Dead Eyes of a Deadline

You know that moment in a horror movie where the killer’s next victim cornered in some way and he or she is on the phone calling for help when the line goes dead?  And you know what that person always does next, right? They frantically push the hell out of the hook switch, trying to […]

10 Things That Will Make The 2 Weeks Leading Up to Super Bowl 47 Unbearable

10 Things That Will Make The 2 Weeks Leading Up to Super Bowl 47 Unbearable

Happy Monday everyone! Well, I was going to do the topic at hand for this week’s edition of Monday Listicles. Really. I was.  I even had a post started and some pictures taken of things in my closet.  But then two things happened: My husband went to bed early, because he gets up at 4:00 […]

About Online Relationships and Hoaxes

This is yet another post about Manti Te’o and his invisible girlfriend. Sort of. Actually, this is a post about online relationships, namely mine. Kind of. I met my husband on the Internet. It was the late 1990s, when everyone still used dial-up for their Internet and there was no Facebook or Twitter or Skype […]


The Pinterest Board of Ghastly Mid 20th Century Cuisine

Welcome back to another installment of the Pinterest Board of Ghastly Mid-20th Century Cuisine. This is where I share with you my latest obsession, faded and pale pictures of mid-20th century food that I’ve pinned to a Pinterest board I call The Gallery of Very Regrettable Food. It’s popular now to take pictures of one’s […]


Monday Listicles: 10 Movie Quotes

It’s Monday. It’s Listicle Time.  This week’s theme has to do with movie quotes. I’m not as big a movie geek as my husband is.  But I have favorite films and favorite quotes from films.  This week’s list are my favorite quotes from ten movies that I’ve actually seen. 1.  I’m a big sucker for […]


Cheer Up, Packers Fans

Instead of ranting, I thought I would take this opportunity to try and turn a negative into a positive.  It wasn’t our year. I can’t complain or whine because my team got smoked by another team and you can’t win playoff games when you don’t miss tackles. But here are some positives. 1. It will […]


How People Found My Blog In 2012

How People Found My Blog In 2012

If you use WordPress, like I do, and you have Jetpack installed (like I do), you get a spiffy e-mail that summarizes things like most popular posts for the year, most commented, referring sites, etc. My most popular post ever is this one from last March about using vinegar and Dawn, mixing it together, spraying […]


BlogHer Reads: The Willpower Instinct

This is a sponsored post for the BlogHer Book Club. I was compensated for my participation; however, the opinions expressed in this post are mine.  The start of a new year always brings with it resolutions. While many people have good intentions, by February, their resolve to change has withered away.  Most people attribute it […]

My Unfiltered & Unedited Thoughts on the NFL Playoffs-Wildcard Edition

Maybe it’s just me, but I find myself getting seriously irritated with some Packer fans during playoff time.  Some examples: When the inactive players were announced for the MIN-GB game and Christian Ponder’s name was on the list, the Drama Mamas came out and started to fret. Scratch that. Fret is too mild of the […]


The Pinterest Board of Ghastly Mid 20th Century Cuisine

(Because The Gallery of Regrettable Food is already taken and I don’t want to get sued. But you should go visit the Gallery of Regrettable Food because it’s awesome. And, don’t forget, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.) I’m not sure what the heck was going on in the mid 20th century.  I do […]

Symphony of the Plains

The meadowlark’s trebling melodies compliment the syncopated calls of the insects and the prairie dog’s chirp the high whistling notes of the wind weave in between all of these during the gentle calm of the first movement. I am caught up in this as I am taken into a time past and I hear the […]
