Unlucky as hell...

It's the "dark Tuesday" before Black Friday here at the Huber household...my husband and me are sitting at the table near the soft glow of a television newscast...it's all doom and gloom these days on the news...I'm surprised anyone can watch the news...job lay-offs, Iraq and Israel, destructive storms...the only safe place on the planet is on Pawn Stars... Have you ever seen Pawn Stars on the television?  It's a reality show about a pawn shop in Vegas, it's has three generations of family running it, and people coming in with all sorts of interesting crap I wouldn...more

Leading up to the Holiday Diet...

For some of you this week is the kick-off to some of the biggest shopping sales you're likely going to encounter this year, but for me, I like to use this week as a lead up to one of my favorite ways I like to torture and torment myself this time of year...the Holiday diet... I know, I know, you probably worry about that well after what's left of the Christmas ham is dried out and rotting in the garbage, but as a professional dieter, this is where I excel...I'm not much of a shopper, and after years of stressing over the perfect Christmas gifts, a couple ...more
Ha! Cindy! The epiphany of the Christmas checks...so funny. What a story teller you are. Loved ...more

Wasting my life watching the Twilight marathon...

There's only two more hours until midnight but I'll be darned if I miss a NaBloPoMo deadline because of a Twilight Marathon...I didn't know this until two hours ago, but apparently I am the last person on earth who has never seen Twilight.  It's unconfirmed as of now, but I'll google this later and if I am indeed the last person on earth who has never seen the Twilight movies, I will quietly think to myself "what is wrong with you people, GET A LIFE!  Seriously, vampires, humans and werewolves--but no Godzilla???  (Oh, and by the way, Bella's an idiot if she goe...more
Hey there, CIndy! Great post again. I haven't seen Twilight. I am not going to watch it for the ...more

How I had a chance to make a killing selling Twinkies on Ebay, but ended up eating them all...

This past Thursday Hostess filed for bankruptcy, thousands of workers lost their jobs, and hundreds of people stormed grocery stores and outlets buying up every box of Twinkies, Suzy Q's and Ding Dongs they could find...I was not one of those people...because I had already bought 40 bucks of Twinkies the day before... I wish I could tell you that I had a preminition something like this was going to happen, so I went out and bought boxes of the stuff and made a killing on Ebay...but if I had had any decent pyschic ability I would've chosen any other career then radio...some...more

Some of my favorite Posts from BlogHer...(and none of them are mine!)

One of the biggest blessings in being a part of the NaBloPoMo's November challenge, is quite simply, becoming more aware of all the other incredible women writers on this website.  Everyday when I post my work and leave a comment on the NaBloPoMo site, I'm amazed at how a simple day can bring so many other great thoughts and ideas.  These are the posts from other writers that are (in my opinion) so great...I wish I had written them; http://www.blogher.com/eating-summer-tomatoes-now...more

My most chilling Death story...

I know way too much about death...Oh wait...is this too morbid for a NaBlaPoMo post?  I didn't see it in my list of November prompt options...maybe I could save this for the day after Thanksgiving...Black Friday......more
@elaineR.N.  Wow!  Need to share that with my husband...that makes sense.more

Five Reasons Why I'm Not a Comedian...

I was originally going to call this 10 reasons why I'm not a comedian, and then list 10 of what I thought were my funniest jokes, jokes that didn't do well on the stage but depression set in when I realized, I didn't even have 10 funny jokes; ...more
