Kids and Phones

 My kids are going to have to get jobs to support their:a.) phone habitsb.) burrito habitsc.) makeup fundd.) ITune cardse.) penchant for dried mango and snacks Well, we can't all afford those fascist IPhones. I mean why can't they just set it up so that the kids can text EVERYONE on her IPods and not just other people who happen to own Apple devices? Because that would be too generous. That would be too much free love. Everyone's so addicted to the web and salivating over those devices and…See More

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

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

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 Myth of Sisyphus

Staying up too late has the same effects of drinking too much. The next day you feel like:a. an idiotb. one who has recently graduated from the lunatic asylum--with a pocket of pocket-wadded records indicating "recovery"c. one who had lots of gardening and junk mail, and zero--or negative one--ambitiond. irritation at making a better kale salad than the one recently purchased for nine buckse. impatience with the myth of Sisyphus going on and on and on like a big boulder of a bus that never gets…See More

My Princecentic Notebook

Posted on April 21, 2016 at 8:15pm 0 Comments

I had a notebook in high school that was sort a work of art. I decorated it with this pic of Prince from Rolling Stone. The Article was entitled "Someday My Prince will Come," and I thought that was really cool. I also had a cartoon from The New Yorker on it that said, "Ask not for whom the refrigerator hums, it hums for thee." I forget was else was on there, but I think it may still be in with all my 100 journals or so from my early life.

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!!
