The Poem 27/Dec/2009

It was the perfect temp
not a cloud in the sky
The mister took the kids
so maybe perhaps that I

could get in a run
for my new resolution
it wasn’t too cold
it was a perfect solution

I started out great
the wind in my hair
my feet on the gravel
a glorious affair

Then came a rumble
which turned in to fear
My mind raced
“Is there a toilet near?”

I stared in to miles
without any hope
There was no way to stop
I’d just have to cope

So off I did... Read more

{W}  -  In an attempt to not be too Amy Grant, My Best Christmas Gift 22/Dec/2009

I’ve struggled with this week’s challenge, which is ironic since I came up with it. Challenge it is, though, as whatever I had in my mind at the time of creating it is long since slipped.  “My Most Memorable Christmas Gift.” It seems silly to think back, even sillier to remember what hit my top list in years past. So excuse the christian-singer-turned-secular-after-a-divorce-cheesy-christmas-list-song-ish of this post, but it’s all I can... Read more

VEGAS BABY! (I hope oh I hope) 10/Dec/2009

I’m whispering this post. Please do not wake Karma

I think we’re going to Vegas tomorrow. :: looks around for Murphy ::

Remember the last time?

(Written the day we cancelled our trip to Vegas, May 3rd, 2009)
- You can realize you are no longer going to Vegas, the trip you need both for work and mental health.
- You can cry about that fact.
- Three times.

Have yourself a Racially Diverse Christmas 09/Dec/2009

It seems to me that Racism is gone. I mean, we have a black president. Can’t we all just get along and sing koombia and all that shit? Seriously, people. Do I care what you look like? No. Do I care if you’re an asshole? Very Much So.

It would appear, though, that race is most certainly not something that we joke about being a thing of the past. “Ohyea, sorry ‘bout them segregation shit. That’s TO-TALLY our bad.”  (Which, for the record, I did not live back then and thus can only apologize for shit my ancestors did and let you know I think... Read more

Participants today in the beta Writing Well Challenge 30/Nov/2009

I’m so happy to see so many people jumping in to the Beta version. It’s Beta because some people are having trouble with the linky. BUT! Hey! Look what we figured out- Wordpress.Com makes us want to hurl ourselves out a window!

No, wait, I knew that.

I’ll be posting my most embarrassing story later. For now, though, here’s what these awesome people are up to:
