Crazy Shootings all the Time

We've got enough crazy people running around this country without flooding the land with guns. I wonder what happened to this kid Dylan Roof to make him turn out the way he did? Everybody says racist parents happened to him, but I haven't heard what these racist parents have to say about it. All I know is that he changed schools a lot. I changed schools a lot as a kid, too, but I never wanted to murder anyone. We should make potential gun owners take routine personality tests and meet certain…See More

Moments Later

Here's an example of how a day goes for me:At the crack of dawn, alarm clock blares some kind of music. I don't even know what it is. If it's news, I only half hear.  -- I make somebody's lunch (es). Feed cat. Stand stupidly.Then I do a ton of chores.Then....................................I go to work.................and work, and work .................................................and work ..........................................and work, and work-work-work-work-work.    Until lunch when…See More

Joan of Arc

Got this audiobook by Kimberly Cutter called Maid. It has wonderfully lush descriptions of 15c life. And--I thought maybe it was a big sacrifice that J. remained virginal--but it was only until she was nineteen-when--ouch--she got burned at the stake. She was busy with leading an army, with visions, etc. She didn't know what she was missing. She only occasionally envies married life. She had no ears or eyes for anything but God. Who would believe a peasant girl capable of leading armies to…See More

Waiting to Hear about the Gay Marriage Issue

It wasn't bad but the kids said it made me look:a.) like a frickin' slutb.) older than I actually amc.) like a supreme court justice on crackd.) like a vacuum cleaner with eyese.) very cosmopolitanf.) like I was impatient to find out if all the gays can get married everywhere or whatJune 15th is coming soon! Progress on basic rights is so slow it's pathetic. A hundred years from now no one will BELIEVE…See More

I Don't Mind if I Do

This is what people say before they:a. buy that five-pound dark chocolate bar at Trader Joe's that seems to be custom-made for their late-night emotional eating sessions.b. take a second helping of everything, rationalizing that it just proves what a sensual being they are.c. slap the hand of the big box store employees who never seem to know where anything is--like basic hardware--or chocolate-covered crystallized ginger.d. slap the manager of the big box store who doesn't care if his…See More

Most Productive Day Ever

Not about writing. Nothing like that. But I was up on the roof by 8:30 a.m. cleaning a gutter and getting pine needles off my roof. I have this gargantuan pine tree right next to my bedroom window. It's ancient. I love it. I've heard pine trees described as majestic or imposing, but it's location, and the way my cat sits there staring at it so fascinated, this pine tree is--sexy, I suppose, full of shadows.i also got a big red rock to use as a step off the porch. Planted some lupine on either…See More

The items below are great articles, although the first is incomplete. I would add that when one person wants to move on from an internet entanglement and the other(s) persist, then it sort of ends up being more like harassment, which is really not a good thing at all. I think men have a harder time with this than women. All kinds of psychiatric and addictions issues can come into play. The author of the first article notes that people just aren't hard-wired for monogamy given that we…

a.) die

a. #2) kick the cat out of bed and turn the fan on high

c.) marinate shrimp and bake muffins

d.) marinate my head

e.) seek out one of the 62 remaining drive in movies in Pennsylvania

f.) work out extra hard with yoga master Rodney Yee

g.) read Ulysses with ACTUAL…

Hi Phoebe,

LOL! Maybe my NEXT mansion will be in Beverly Hills. :) My mom worked all over -- Warrington, Doylestown... Bristol? I think she had some sort of training (as a caseworker) in Perkasie. Ah, PA... Don't ask me why. But, the old Pennsauken Mart and Cherry Hill mall (NJ) just leaped into my head. Get out!!
