Bake Sale

September 16, 2011

Last night, when most normal people were watching Project Runway (is it me, or is Heidi unnecessarily bitchy?) I was baking blueberry muffins with my daughter. Because their class is having Friday bake sales now. To raise money for a class trip. We baked and baked and the muffins looked gorgeous. Like model muffins. It’s […]

Fashion Week

September 15, 2011

I bought a very adorable non-Missoni blouse this week and wore it with pride yesterday.  Mama approved. “Top look nice!” she said.  “I was just thinking yesterday, you should be on that TV show.” “Which one? America’s Next Top Model?” “No, I don’t watch that. What Not To Wear.  You would enjoy.” “Why would I […]

Yesterday, after I posted about my dispute with Kristine about waterboarding cats (long story short: I believe that the U.S. Constitutional prohibition against cruel and inhuman treatment applies to Feline Americans, Kristine does not),  I got a little nervous. I mean, what if everyone responded with “of course cats have to be bathed! What are […]

I’m Right, You’re Wrong: Clean Cat

September 12, 2011

Yippee! I had another disagreement with someone and it’s time for a fresh I’m Right, You’re Wrong! This weekend I was having a loving email discussion with Kristine, when suddenly things took a turn for the horrendous. Because we broached the subject of cat bathing. And didn’t exactly see eye to eye. It’s my fault […]

September 9, 2011

a very different post today. I wanted to write about the very funny but the very maddening things that happened with me and the kids yesterday and Husbandrinka’s reaction. I’d even asked Peajaye to do a sketch for me. It was going to be fantastic. But then I got an email from a friend, telling […]

On Monday night, I watched “Children of 9/11” on NBC. I knew it would be painful, but as with all things connected to 9/11 I have yet to strike the balance between preserving my heart and my sanity and honoring the people whose lives have been shattered by not looking away. It’s fallacious reasoning. It […]

If I Were A Racehorse, I’d Have Been Shot By Now

September 6, 2011

I am being punished. Because last week I mocked the leg pit and this weekend I was in agony with the back of my knee being very hurty. So hurty, in fact, that I couldn’t unbend it. And it’s hard to walk without straightening your legs, although it’s really easy to propose to people. (And […]

I’m Right, You’re Wrong!

September 2, 2011

I’m Right, You’re a Dumbass (as Wendi once referred to it) is back! A fun-loving feature where I present you with a disagreement that I had with a loved one and ask you to please weigh in. In order not to prejudice you towards voting for me, I do not disclose which option was mine, […]
