Tights

I’m in a bad mood. First day of a new year and I’m crabby already.  Not a good sign at all.  Maybe it’s holiday let down, maybe it’s the pressure of a new year, maybe it’s a sign this will be the worst year yet. No one ever says that coming out of the gate,…

End on End Cuff

Artichokes are cool. They are like trilobites, well maybe not, because I’ve never eaten a trilobite.  Artichokes are similar, that’s the word, to trilobites in that they are interesting to look at and their structure suggests they have been around forever.  Both are primitive, complicated and yet simple.  They each have a squishy center surrounded…

Wardrobe Malfunction

I feel like leather pants should be a controlled substance. They need to be behind a counter or a sliding glass window, not just out in the open for everyone to wear.  I know it sounds mean and I’m sorry, well I’m not really sorry because this is factual information.  There needs to be an…

I’m making pies this year for Thanksgiving. If you have never made a pie from scratch, the pumpkin pie is a tough one.  I know it looks like a fairly straightforward pie, but it can be a nightmare.  You need to hit somewhere between smooth, custardy, pudding and earthy, root vegetable, without falling into snotty,…

Shoulder Pads

Are you getting excited for the holidays?

Manolos

It is not often that the words “death” and “vibrator” come together in the same conversation, let alone the same sentence.  At least not in my life. I’m sure the two words taken individually could produce a plethora of entertaining dialogue, but together they make for an interesting nail appointment. I’m sitting in the cushy…

Shamelessly Low Neckline

This post will be reminiscent of that co-worker who brought in the gift wrap catalog for her child’s school fundraiser, or possibly the crazy Girl Scout cookie mom. For those of you not yet in the workforce, this post will feel like that friend who always asks you to like every Instagram picture of her…

Wash with Like Colors

Writing is an interesting pastime, job, hobby, passion.  Whatever you want to call it, it’s a unique way to spend your time. I write when I’m sad, frustrated and most of the time when the stories or voices in my head will not be quite. I have to consciously make myself write when I’m happily…

“Managing expectations” Last week at work I received an email with this phrase.  It was the person’s way of telling me I was expecting too much and she wanted to make sure she was “managing expectations”.  In normal speak this means, “you are not going to get what you want, so get a grip and…
