Idea For An Untraditional Christmas Dinner

I was gonna write about the holiday season, but since this bronchitis from hell cold has taken over my life for the past week, I'm gonna write about last Christmas; food to be specific....more

That’s not in your character!

I find it very interesting that people form opinions about others from what they have in their own mind of who they should be!…I’ll elaborate: When Friday comes along, I do a fun little joke striptease for the secretaries in my office. It brightens their day. It’s not like I take anything off and it is clearly nothing sexy by any means…it’s just a joke that sets up a fun weekend. Well!...more

The Self-Pity Trilogy

I have recently been receiving daily depressing emails from a family member. I’m not sure what the point is as they contain things like, “You are so lucky that you have no life and that you are alone…”, “I have canceled Christmas”, “I will just sit here and wait to die!”…um…nice!...more

Hey, Young Chick on the Texter: It's a Youth Thing I Don't Understand

The following poetic rant is inspired by a routine performed by the comic, William Stephenson.  His routine starts, "Hey little girl on the cellphone..."  It is about the annoyance of over-hearing cell phone conversations, especially inane ones. ...more

Timing and appropriateness are important parts of communicating well.  Those of us who ...more

A Melding Thanksgiving Meltdown

Apart from the usual holiday festivities: the joining of family and friends and the over-indulging in tasty holiday delicacies–drama is usually a part of the overall experience. This Thanksgiving was no different. The underlying tension revolving around the impending nuptials abroad for one brother and his fiancé was for the moment, forgotten and instead, blanketed by the aroma of roasted turkey and simmering side dishes. I came down the stairs and noticed the absence of chatter, realizing that the crew had already begun munching....more

DeeNice, the "Hostel" Virgin: An Urban City-Girls’ Humorous Experience living in a Hostel

DeeNice the Hostel Virgin. Now I'd like to think that I am an adventurous person (sometimes). BUT you never really know how “city-fied” you are until you go abroad for the first time. Some well meaning veteran travelers recommended I venture into the world of Hostels, so I did. I had just finished going to Spain and lived in a village called ValdelaVilla for an English Immersion program. Which was cool. ...more

All Those TV Christmas Movies!

It’s pretty much a given - without the Lifetime and Hallmark networks - Christmas couldn’t exist.  I’m not knocking those two - in fact I schedule my season in order to leave time to watch just about every  Christmas movie. Most of them aren’t very good - by anybody’s movie standards - but they all end happily.  Every single one of them.  And this time of year that’s just fine with me.  I like my holidays predictable. ...more

So Much Content

I'm wrapping gifts.I made an ass out of myself last night, which only Danny witnessed. I find it both hilarious yet embarrassing, so if you ask politely I will share the story. I made my first official sale!I got a $20 tip which I used to buy Danny and myself dinner @ Denny's. I think I'm pretty much done all my Christmas shopping. I got another beading order. ...more
