Let My People Go!

It's now Passover, which means, it is time for Matzo-related injuries.  If you've never had Matzo, let me clue you in... it is some stabby shit. Think 'stabbing power of Doritos if Doritos were twice as thick.'  And I am not talking about the rounded-edged Doritos that they likely switched to because they were undoubtedly getting sued for injuring so many unsuspecting customers, I am talking old school, 'put it in your mouth wrong and bleed for half an hour' Doritos....more

Philly Cheese Open-Faced Yeast-Free Sandwich (for Passover)

This is like a cross between a Philly Cheese and a French Dip. It could be made better with the addition of a thin layer of horseradish spread on the matzo brie before adding the onions, meat and cheese. Also, sauteed mushrooms would be a great addition....more

Operation: Mother May I?

After reading more on proposed contraception bans and comments about how women should be at home taking care of children instead of working so we don't need things like Head Start, the following occurred to me:...more

Laughter is the best medicine, cause it is free!

I'd like to talk about a major issue in my life right now. It's a downer, so prepare yourself.So, I'm poor. I know I have said that before but when I say I am poor, I mean we survived last year on less than $6,000 income. Like super poor.And one would think, "Oh, you're taken care of by the state," but nope.  If you don't have kids and you are poor, you can pretty much go fuck yourself... which apparently I have done by becoming ill while poor....more

Bobdee or Why you shouldn't screw with the spelling of your kid's name.

I really dislike it when people misspell my name. In my mind, if I were famous, people would actually remember how to spell my name.  In reality, I fear it would just up the amount of people trying to spell my name and failing. ...more

NaBloPoMo: Day 29

I don't know.  I've been writing for a month straight, shy of a day.  I've run out of things to say. I got ice cream for lunch.  ...more

How to tell if someone is depressed, or maybe a hipster.

I couldn't be bothered to put on pants today to leave the house. I don't mean I went out buck-assed naked on the bottom half, I just couldn't be bothered to put on ACTUAL pants to leave the house today.  Nor a bra.I was just going to pick my nephew up from school and knew I was not getting out of my car (unless it somehow exploded into flames or something), so I think I am still safe.  When I start walking around in public wearing pajama pants and an old shirt with no bra, it is probably time for medication....more
LOL! The red glasses say hipster!more

It's a hairy situation.

I've been lying to you all.  I've shamelessly misrepresented myself. Last week, there was a mix-up and I missed an appointment to get my bangs trimmed (that is my fringe for OG English speakers).  I've needed a bang trim since before I went to NYC in fact, and instead of drawing myself as I actually look, I have continued to draw myself with cute short bangs. I'm sorry.  But there is a reason....more

Prepaid Pudding Post

I'm super excited.  I went to lunch today at our local Chinese buffet and my fortune cookie gave me great news: The project you have in mind will soon gain momentum.Which is pretty awesome because I wasn't sure how it would be received. But here it is:...more

My readers give bad advice.

JRose took the advice of her readers and took a muscle relaxer, which is why she has only been awake for three hours today.  As a result, she has nothing to write about and her neck/shoulder still hurt but she had a dream that a cop named Ron Rodney pulled her over for going 75 in a 77 mph zone, after she got in a shouting argument with a woman working at a Hungry Howie's Pizzas and Subs shop for being less than nice while giving her mom a pizza.She thinks it might be the muscle relaxer that is also making her talk about herself in third person....more
