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, […]
I give up! I quit! I’m throwing in the towel, bowing out, and saying uncle. I think I’m done with the online dating thing. Perhaps I was just too trusting in the sincerity and goodness of my fellow-man. While I knew that there were douche bags out there who are just after one thing (as […]
One of the pictures I have in my profile on my online dating site was taken on Halloween. I’m wearing my witch’s costume, complete with a tall, glamorous, feather-trimmed witch’s hat. I’m all about the accessories, y’all. I thought the picture was a way to convey that I have a playful side – or a […]
I was overcharged at The Body Shop the other day. A few years back, I fell in love with their White Musk Libertine scent and they discontinued it before Christmas, so I was excited when I saw a couple of baskets FULL of the stuff on the sale table at The Body Shop for $5 […]

Last Monday, I started to feel like a cold was coming on. I was annoyed, as I had successfully managed to avoid getting a cold during the entire autumn and winter – even when my adult kids had brought the plague home with them and succumbed to the congestion, sneezing, coughing, and general miserableness. I […]
My therapist thinks I should get a new job in a new state and leave my ex and the rest of my old life behind me. She even said, “You are running out of time,” referring to the fact that I’m getting up there in years and (as we know) it is more difficult to […]
The online dating saga continues with The Smiling Man.
I have a couple of recurrent dreams when I’m under stress. They are always disturbing, anxiety producing, and linger with me for days afterwards – but I’ve had them so often now that I understand that they are a sign. My brain is trying to tell me something and, if I was wise, I would […]
