Last week I had dinner with Stacy. And if you’re not reading her blog, I have nothing more to say to you. Except go read it. (She also wrote one of my favorite memoirs of the year, Falling Apart in One Piece, so go read that too. Gosh, you have a lot to do. I […]

Tomorrow Husbandrinka and I are taking twelve of Young Ladrinka’s closest friends to see The Green Lantern in 3-D to celebrate his 10th birthday.

June 10, 2011

I have a lot to update on and rather than do a long, drawn out post filled with things like “truth” and “facts” I decided to do a faux Q & A to answer the burning questions (if they also starts to itch, see a doctor!) Here we go! How is your skin cancer? Are […]

Mom, I want to know something but I don’t want to ask you. You can ask me anything, Young Ladrinka. It’s private. That’s ok. It’s embarrassing. Would you rather ask Dad? No. It’s about that puberty talk we had at school. I will tell you anything that you want to know. Ok, forget it. Ok. […]
