It’s been a strange week. I’ve had a few close calls. I think moving vehicles may want to kill me. Let me just say for the record that I’m an excellent driver. Yes, I may be a tad assertive – but I believe in scanning the road ahead and formulating my route so that I […]
The only dating app I use lately is OK Cupid. I use the term “use” very loosely, because the most I do is pop in when I get a notification that someone has sent me a message – and that only happens once in a blue moon these days. To say that my dating life […]
Did you think that I had been kidnapped and sold into sex slavery? I tried my best, but the slavers just didn’t seem to be interested in all of this *waves hand across torso and face several times*.
I’ve been grumpy at work lately. It may be due to the fact that I’ve been given additional job duties. It used to be that I could finish my tasks, even working about a week ahead, and still have plenty of down time to decompress. Now, I’m working all day, every day — and I’m […]

Some calls are entertaining – like the woman who told me that, “I’m standing NAKED in my kitchen with sweat POURING down my body! I […]
Last week, a few of my friends invited me to skip Superbowl and go on a hike with them up in the Jemez mountains. The weather has been gorgeous here in New Mexico and I enthusiastically agreed. The Jemez area is in a geothermal area. Back in the day (about 1.2 million years ago), a […]
Pine nuts are delicious — except when they make everything else taste like crap! The Pine Mouth Predicament.
If you haven’t read Part One of this story — you can find it here. As we left the gallery on our way to the tango class, The Libertarian suggested I leave my car in the parking lot and we climbed into his convertible – some of us more gracefully than others. Who the hell […]
One of my secret pleasures is to eat saltine crackers, slathered with butter. The only thing better is hot French bread, slathered with butter. I think the key here is that the carbohydrate product needs to be slathered with butter. Unless it is graham crackers – then I like them slathered with vanilla frosting. So, […]
