#Truth

A guy I work with has this bumper sticker on his car. It doesn’t get more real than this. We expend a lot of time and energy fighting with one another because of differences of religion, color of skin, political ideologies. But when it comes right down to it, we are all the same. We…

Cinco TV shows you haven’t watched but totally should

I think I’ve mentioned before that I like to watch TV. I’m probably an addict. But I’ve made peace with that fact and even accept it as part of what makes me who I am. Because I watch a lot of TV, I tend to burn through shows at a pretty fast pace. I’m almost always…

You can’t always get what you want

Once upon a time, a wise man uttered those words. He also said that if you try sometimes, you just might find you get what you need. Me? I needed the shirt in that photo there. Bigly. Maybe you’re like me, or maybe you’re normal. But if you’re like me, you watch a lot of TeeVvee shows….

TYOK: Our House edition

People of Earth, how are you? Golly, it’s been a long time since I’ve written anything here. But this time, the delay isn’t due to writer’s block (which I recently learned wasn’t even a real thing!). No, it’s because I’ve been freaking busy! B-I-Z-Z-E-E! All caps! SAD! DISAPPOINTED! You might remember that in one of my…

Eff You, Mark Wahlberg

This is a much different post than what I’d planned as my first of the new year. For the most part, I’m really digging 2017. And it seems to be digging me as well – yay! If I had to come up with one complaint, though, it would be the release of the latest Mark…

Prepping for Doomsday

So, it’s been a few weeks since I woke up to read what might possibly be the most depressing bit of news … ever. I’m still trying to come to terms with it. I won’t lie to you, my initial reaction was to crawl back into bed, pull the covers over my head, and never come out…

Confessions of a smug dog mom

Last week marked the three-year-anniversary of the glorious day that ‘Lil Beezy joined our family. I’ve been spending a lot of time reflecting on that period because we’re carefully weighing our options for adding a second pooch to the family. I like the idea of adding another dog to the mix—it would certainly put an…

What I’m Listening To: Early December Edition

I’m a huge music fan. Some people have even referred to me as a music snob. I’m not, of course, but some of the stuff you’re listening to is really pretty awful. Ha! I kid, I kid! I read something online recently that said that, on average, most people’s listening preferences are firmly entrenched by…

Writerz Blok. I haz it.

Writer’s block is a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work or experiences a creative slowdown. The condition ranges in difficulty from coming up with original ideas to being unable to produce a work for years. (Wikipedia) I haven’t been able to write a single word…

Pleased to meet me

Have you ever wondered about the person behind the blog you’re reading? It could be any blog, not just this one. What makes the author tick? What drives that person? Well, wonder no more about this blogger, my friend. I’m in a sharing mood. I also have about 10 posts started that I’m struggling to…

Who you gonna call?

I have been ghosted, y’all. Yeah, you read that right — I am a grown-ass woman and I have been ghosted. By another grown-ass woman. Can you even believe it? Some of you might be asking, “What’s ghosting? Is that when you take a picture of that little ghost icon and start exchanging photos with someone?”…
