Open it Up

I'm shutting down the day and opening up the night.I've been reading about Britney Spears on the internet, and I am starting to like her even more than I did before. I feel bad that she lost custody of her kids and that her dad and a lawyer have permanent "conservatorship" over her assets. That really sucks. Being a big star must be terribly stressful. And. . . maybe she really does suck at math, I don't know. When someone else has permanent conservatorship over your assets, you'd better pay…See More

People

The older I get, the more I steer clear of them. Literally. I guess it's a problem. But when I'm alone with the lights low, fighting off a post-concussion headache, well, I really don't think so. . . .I like myself. Generally.I just wonder why the cat is less affectionate now than when she was first brought home to live with us?See More

Car Stuff Coming Out My Ears

Today I feel a little bit like I've been beaten up. Visited my car. Pretty sure it will never drive again. It doesn't even power up. All I do is talk to insurance agents, and get told about x-rays and gap insurance. I hate driving every time I get into the rental car. I look at everyone driving and I SEE them looking at their phones, and talking on their phones, and picking stuff up off the floor of their cars, and looking into the seats next to them, and I just want to scream. I'm a screamer…See More

Bad Day

It's like when someone does a number on your car by whizzing through a stop sign at 40 mph, and you're pretty sure the insurance adjuster's going to say the thing is totaled (and it's not anywhere near paid off yet)--then, baby, you are up the creek.So, I am up the creek with a sore neck but at least I'm not dead and thank heavens the kids were not in the car.I really wish people would be more fucking careful. See More

Plagiarism is for Scumbags

Well, I'm a poet who rarely reads poetry, but when I hear poets talk about plagiarism, I can't believe people have the audacity to actually do that. Perhaps an unknown writer would use another unknown writer's work thinking they'd never get caught. Or it's possible that a well-known writer could plagiarize an unknown author's work. Either way, it would be completely abhorrent and reprehensible--but I suppose it actually does happen. There seems to be no limit to how creepy some people can be.…See More

New Addictions to Add to the Heap

Now, instead of coming home and sitting on the couch and watching Glee for six hours while eating a five pound bar of Trader Joe's 72% chocolate, I decided to do one of the following:a.) Cast aside all the weirdness of my life and just be normal. Just SIT, without EATING everything in sight all the damn time.b.) Find out what bourbon was. It's actually whiskey. You can cook with it. Peach cobbler.c.) Take a cold shower, followed by a hot shower, followed by a cold shower, followed by nail…See More

Today I Fell Asleep Right after Work

Posted on August 27, 2015 at 6:11pm 0 Comments

How's that for excitement? I take a lickin' and keep on tickin'.

Kids burned dinner. I told them, don't go playing around:

a. charred pans

b. conflagrations

c. smoking volcanoes

d. land mines/IEDs

e. charred pants

f. consternation

I just have to go to bed. I can hardly move.

Kids and Phones

Posted on August 26, 2015 at 6:20pm 0 Comments

 

My kids are going to have to get jobs to support their:

a.) phone habits

b.) burrito habits

c.) makeup fund

d.) ITune cards

e.) 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…

X Out of It

I tend to watch a lot of Britney Spears videos--but I can stop any time I want. --Man, look at her. Maybe Britney isn't very good at doing her own taxes, but obviously she can DANCE. If anyone tells her she sucks at math, well, she just probably deflects that criticism with a round-about kick to the head. Me--well, sometimes it's like these angry little hordes of trolls come swirling around my desk trying to tell me I'm not good at whatever it is I'm working on--you know, those awful little…

Hi Phoebe,

I just noticed your friend request from February!  So sorry I missed it.  I would love to be friends - just approved it.  Thanks

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!!
