In my past (which actually is beginning to feel like more of a past life than just a couple of years ago), I normally would have done high kicks to hear the overly aggressive Light FM stations blasting their X-Mas music pre- Thanksgiving.

Holy Heart Failure, Batman! What a week, woo wee. You can say that ten times fast, but actually you can, this is one of those sayings that it is physically possible. And I wanted to cut you all a break. With emotions running at an all time HIGH, I don’t care who you were voting for, […]

INSTEAD it’s approaching 90 degrees here mid October and I legit am sweating right now since I refuse to turn the AC back […]

It’s officially cold here in the Midwest (though Missouri is definitely more Mideast, whatever, much like their drivers, these midwesterners are in a constant state of confusion). Seriously. And this is coming from a terrible driver. Which people so kindly love to express their concerns to me while I’m in the drivers seat (apparently I’m […]

I. hate. technology. and I’m 100 percent positive it hates me. Sometimes I can’t wrap my head around how I even managed to start this blog, and, to this day, and every day that it has been alive, I am one step closer to a having a heart attack. No joke. Computers give me hemorrhoids. […]
