Fever Induced Guest Post from the Grave

Yesterday I started to plan my funeral.  No joke.  There was going to be story time (where someone read my lost manuscripts, choking back their tears), a coffee bar, reruns of all of my favorite movies (including things like The Lost Boys, Lethal Weapon and of course Terminator), a karaoke hour and a petting zoo (where no doubt my husband would try to pawn off every last one of my animals).  It’s bad when your son gets sent home with a 102* fever, it’s worse when the bebe is teething and has a fever herself, it’s worse when you wake up at 3am lost in delusion...more

I have been hanging out with Bodacious Boomer all day. And dinosaurs

How exciting! Try and guess what I've been up to today? Clue: it certainly doesn't involve me hanging around 'the day after yesterday'. I've been moonlighting that's what. Or if you prefer, you could call it whoring because it makes me sound a little bit edgy like Anna Nicole Smith (but without the twin airbags or red lipstick). 'What the bloody hell are you banging on about?' I hear you cry. ...more
