Take my thoughts, Please!

There are just so many things in my head, so I'll dump a few of them here. 1) BlogHer, you're killin' me...please, for the love of Pete...notify the volunteers you selected for BlogHer'13. I've got no nails left, having bitten them to the core in anticipation. 2) I need easy to use (free is good, too) software that will allow me to build a customer tracking database. ...more

And Now She Brings Home The Bacon

Have you ever had one of those, "This is the beginning of the rest of my life moments?"Yeah, me either.But, just recently I HAVE had a, "This could very well be the next major step in rounding a bend toward a few pretty freakin' gnarly moments...dude."It all started with a simple text message that read, "Want a part time job?"...more
@Denise Kat decided she wants to try and hike as much as possible during the month of April. ...more

Adapting a Dream

When it comes to dreams, I have oodles. I'm full to over flowing with them, so much so that they're seeping out of my ears.  Recently I've started working a few, but so many more have been filed away for "some day". One of my dreams is to have an epic road trip. I want to drive across the country and set my feet in every state, seeing the vast countryside at ground level instead of 30,000 feet in the air. ...more

A View from the Top

While walking a hilly neighborhood with Hubbypants tonight we chatted about a trail booklet he received from our county parks system. To my surprise, the trails we've walked recently were rated strenuous. Really? I've been walking strenuous hills? Hot damn, I'm a rock star! Well, maybe like the D list version of rock stardom.  I'm sure there are plenty of hikers and exercise enthusiast who would snort while "pfft"ing over the rating, thinking it more of a brisk stroll.  ...more

The Perfect Shade

My exhaustion is exhausted.I'm too tired to write, but the NaBloPoMo beast must be fed.  So, I'll leave you with this - the perfect shade of red (so far).  This is totally going with me to Chicago...(fingers crossed).SMOOOOOCH!...more

Still Bottomless

My shopping day started with two very simple missions: buy a pair of pants and a new shade of red lipstick. The pants were a ginormous fail. Losing 28 pounds has been wonderful, but it has stranded me in the dreaded purgatory of In Between Sizes. The Gobi desert is more habitable than living in a state where you almost fit into one size, but not quite. At least in the Gobi they wear flowing material. ...more
@HomeRearedChef Boy, I sure understand that sluggish motivation! I'm just hoping my motivation ...more

She Wore Red

It often lay there, at the bottom of the special little pocket in Her purse, buried beneath the less cheeky colors. She shied away from this particular color, it always made too much of a statement. The other colors dressed her in subtlety - no flash, nothing to draw attention...safe and unseen. ...more
@cescilay I totally agree! For me, it is red lipstick. For you? For her or her or her? A color ...more

Under the Wire Post - Santa Cruz to the Rescue!

 I think the Kaiser vampires sucked all the imagination out of me today.Four stinkin' vials of blood - serves me right for going so close to lunch hour.Greedy bastards.And I have a bruise, because I got a stabby vampire who was a little over anxious - apparently I'm irresistible....more
@alienbody Had to come back and share with you that mi familia loved it. Success again!    ...more

Of Asking, Risks and Rewards

You guys! OMG So much happened yesterday, like many muches of things. Well, not really...it was just one thing. But a bigish, ginormous thing for me! When I wrote about my big idea to have FORD loan me a hybrid car to drive from California to Chicago so that I could attend BlogHer'13, while promoting their product...OF COURSE, I never expected in many millions of years a representative would actually leave a comment. ...more
@HomeRearedChef Yes! I'm totally up for it. We've got some rain in the near forecast, but later ...more
