Halter Top

You know when you hear people say, “She’s a blast!” or “She can really let loose and party!”?  Yeah, that’s not me. I’d like to think I’m fun to be around, but I’m not a blast.  I don’t drink beer from a bottle, I don’t even like beer for that matter.  I have recently developed…

Dryer Lint

Often times my mind begins to overflow. I am, as we all are, inundated with information whether we want it or not. Some information is good. It’s important to be informed and even entertained. But sometimes, some of the information is like knowing every word to Hello by Lionel Richie even though you hated the…

Overalls and Jimmy Choos

                The photograph on the left is Migrant Mother by Dorthea Lange.  It was taken in 1936. The photograph on the right is a publicity shot of Joan Crawford, also taken in 1936. One is a picture of a woman that looks like she works hard, she’s had…

Stains

I don’t watch television at all.  Haven’t watched a television show in years.  Well, that’s not true I have watched a few episodes of Mad Men and Glee on my computer, but I have not watched anything when it actually aired in forever.  Weird, I know, but hands down the very best gift I’ve ever…

Wedding Dress

I’ve been married 18 years as of last weekend.  For some reason this year hit me.  It just seems crazy that I’ve been married to the same man for 18 years.  For a lot of people that seems perfectly normal.  I mean after all you do get married to stay together forever, right?   Apparently…

Shocking Colors

  Pablo Picasso, Three Musicians, 1921. The status quo is comfortable and people tend to gravitate toward what they understand and can logically get their head around.  Change can be scary and pulls into question “What will happen now?”  Change in politics or society can effect people’s lives in often dramatic ways.  I understand the…

Tighty Whitey

I spend a lot of time in the car, so I often entertain myself by people watching on the freeway. For those of you that don’t have an hour commute, let me tell you it can be fascinating. Occasionally I’ll see a driver that for one reason or another will make me laugh out loud…

Fur Coat

I’ve been having a bit of an identity crisis lately. Warning, this blog may be a touch whiney and I realize I could be living in Haiti or missing a leg. I know…there are people a lot worse off than I am and quite frankly I’m sick of hearing about it. I want to wallow…
