In reckless disorder, here are a few sentimental pop songs I love. Shall I sing you a few bars?No, you’re right. Let’s stay friends instead.What are some of your favorite sentimental pop songs, especially those songs the world may have forgotten? The mushier, the better. If the song makes you cry, better yet. I want to know!P.S. There are some glaring omissions from my list, like Elvis, because I couldn't make up my mind....more
If the search for the Confirmation dress was agony, the search for shoes proved to be sheer ecstasy. After a rocky start at a shoe warehouse, we struck gold with black shoes at Payless. Comfortable, not too high a heel, and an open toe with a sliver of a platform. What happened on the way to Payless, however, was a moment I won't soon forget.
I was preparing to spend a week at a professional conference with other college writing teachers and program directors ...more
I am blogging to get a song out of my head.Have you ever had a song stuck in your head? I can't stand it. Whenever Mike wants to annoy me, he sings "Little Willy" by The Sweet, which he knows gets stuck in my head like whoa.But for once, that's not stuck.

My husband will be away this weekend due to his annual trip with his company. Happy, happy, joy, joy… Not. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I’m clingy or scared of being alone. I actually quite like being on my own for an evening or a day. However, three days and two nights is still a bit of a challenge.
It's been two since Michael Jackson's death and the online tributes still pour in. It's made me think a lot about the redemptive power of music: that one song or album that "did it for you."
