Break Out the Tissue, I Bought a Dog

After a year of looking at dogs online and trying to figure out what kind of dog would be right for me, I finally got one. For most people getting a dog would be a happy, fun experience of discovery and bonding with their new pet. Well, I’m not most people. I started regretting my decision in the car on the way home for the animal shelter and it only got worse from there ....more

Some Pictures

Hi. I haven’t put any pictures up in a while, mostly because I’m too lazy to take them off my camera and edit them. Here are a few I from last week. By the way, we got a dog. Like everything in my life, getting a dog involved a great deal of drama and self-inflicted emotional distress. I’ll tell you the hilarious story on Monday. In the mean time enjoy the pictures. ...more

Stir It Up

I like to think of myself as a relaxed, laid back kind of person. I can go with the flow, as they say. I’m great at chilaxing, as long as I have total control over what’s happening. I’m not a control freak or anything like that. I just like things done a certain way, at a certain time, preferably by me. ...more

I’m Not Getting Older, Are You?

The craziest thing keeps happening to me every year. I keep getting older. I’ve been trying to figure out how to put an end to this, but outside of death I just can’t seem to come up with a solution ....more

Nebulous Mooch the Movie

One of the best things about having a life as incredibly interesting as mine is knowing that one day it will be immortalized in a motion picture–a comedy of course. I’ve always known that I would be involved in movie making. I’m not interested in the acting side of things ....more

Conversation

When we were walking around downtown the other day we saw an interracial couple walking in front of us–black woman, white man. This is the conversation that ensued. ...more

What Do You Want to be When You Grow Up

When I was a kid I wanted to be an oceanographer, or a marine biologist, or the Bionic Woman. As an adult, I realized that becoming the Bionic Woman would be way too painful. A skydiving accident and a series of painful and costly surgeries wouldn’t really be worth bionic hearing or being able to run at 60 miles per hour. ...more

The Greatest American Cockroach

The good thing about Florida is that the heat makes it an ideal environment for all sorts of insects. That’s not really a good thing to me, but I’m pretty sure the bugs like it. At least they seem to when they’re flying into my house and stinging me. I’ve been surprised by the fact that there seems to be less mosquitoes when I’m outside these days, but somehow at night one always seems to have made it into my ...more

Mr. Postman

Can you really trust your postal worker? I mean the one who is actually delivering your mail not the one that you buy stamps from at the post office. Today I was out in my front garden pulling weeds when the postman put some mail in my mailbox. “How are you doing?” he said. “Good. How are you?” I replied ....more

It’s a Special Day

Everyone has a birthday, even if at times they’d like to pretend they didn’t. Whether getting older is good or bad all depends on how you look at it. As of yet I’m undecided, but my husband seems to think it’s a blast. It’s his birthday today. That’s right, on this day 48 years ago the world became a better place. Happy birthday to the best husband in the world. ...more
