I really do enjoy my role as, Fairy Grandmother! The role of Fairy Grandmother is the universe’s gift of second chances, second comings (and goings), and an opportunity to gift love to a little piece of yourself. It doesn’t get much better than that! It’s such an easy “do;” teach what you know (like – how to make Rice Krispie Bars), gingerly retrieve the froglet that is belly up in the tank, calm and wipe away the tears of the child’s sadness and guilt (“I should have let him go!”),… Continue

“Life’s Little Instruction Book,” first published in 1991 as a collection of advice from H. Jackson Brown, Jr. to his college-bound son, has sold millions of copies, been translated into 35 languages, and inspired calendars, posters, journals, greeting cards and screensavers.
Not surprisingly, it’s a very popular graduation gift.
The latest edition contains plenty of excellent counsel, like “Get a dog” and “Check hotel bills carefully for unexpected charges” along with… Continue

Social networking makes teenagers of us all. Lots of my ridiculously successful friends — some of whom appear regularly on television, give TED talks and are the kind of people who get harassed in restaurants by their fans (while my fans remain remarkably good-mannered and never, ever come over to introduce themselves or say a word) — will still not permit themselves to have a Facebook account because the thought of people unfriending…

So, every Tuesday, Kelloggs, John Hamm, and I meet up for Tacos at this Mexican restaurant in Suburbia. They have this deal known as Taco Tuesday, where you can order $1 Tacos, which are actually pretty delicious.
Since Kelloggs is a giant flake, he decided he wasn't going to show up last night, but instead go home and take care of his flu-ridden mother.
What a jerk.
Anyway, this is the conversation we had this morning:
Kelloggs: Sorry I missed all… Continue

Good Morning Ladies,
I find I have difficulty when writing dialog. This is a SAMPLE of such. Would you please critique this short blerp for me and tell where I could improve, specifically with the dialog. Thank you RR.

My very own DERECHO STORM STRAIGHT LINE WINDS TORNADO STORY. I could have subtitled this 'Damn Dog' or 'Breast Cancer Cell Feeding Frenzy' but I didn't. The title is long enough.
Tornado storm like a hurricane came through yet again, no funnel sighted. Don't care, I know what takes out 200 trees by the roots in a one mile radius. I'm from the Midwest. It was up there somewhere. I called it a… Continue

He awoke early, just as he did every morning. The room was still dark except for a hint of moonlight that was shining rather dimly through the large floor-to-ceiling, windows behind him. He loved that they had decided not to…

“Buy Shoes On Wednesday and Tweet at 4:00” is a new advice book which tells the reader the best possible time to get everything done, from flossing ones teeth to visiting Zanzibar. As a public service, I’ve used the information provided in that book to create an ideal day:
First thing in the morning, start a daily ritual that will become a habit (you‘re more likely to stick with it) go to the car wash (it’s less crowded and the machinery is cleaner) and ride your horse (he’ll have… Continue

Vacations are great, but I am somehow always relieved to return home. The radiators in my apartment may sound like they are constantly boiling spaghetti and I am convinced that mice are giving walking tours within the walls, but it is mine. That's of course not actually true, as my name is not on any deed and my landlords would gleefully kick me out as soon as they found… Continue

We kinda sorta had a white Christmas; however, it didn't really start snowing until late afternoon on Christmas day. The first part of the morning we had horrendous thunderstorms until the cold front pushed them through and gave us a dusting of snow.
Not a big deal, right? I didn't think so, but then again, I've lived up north where I've had to drive in blizzard-like… Continue

Apparently, I think I'm I.M. Pei or Frank Lloyd Wright in the Ambien world.
While in college (several years ago), I had a severe case of insomnia. I would go 3 or 4 days on only a couple of hours of sleep. It wasn't working for me. I thought I was going crazy, so the doctor introduced me to the sleep aid, Ambien.
It worked. It worked really well, except that I would do things at night that I was unsure of in the morning.
I lived with a roommate at the time and I'm… Continue

In case you missed it, about a month ago, I listed the search terms that readers used in whatever is was they were looking for, but found my blog instead. It intrigued me so much, that I did a post about it. You can read Part I here.
Here are more search terms that people have used and they got my giggle box turned upside down, so I had to share. Again, my responses are in italics.
NOTE: I have typed them exactly as they were… Continue
