Burning Daylight Foods

One night last fall, I came home to find a package from my friend Dani.  I opened it up, and – SCORE! – homemade granola!  Belying my civilized charade, I promptly ripped open the bag and poured it directly into my mouth.  Yes, like a savage. Except it was not granola.  It was oatmeal. Shocking.…

Trying for triceps

I have negative triceps. There’s, like, nothing there. If my arms were outerspace, there would be a black hole where my triceps are supposed to be. Haha, PHYSICS JOKE!!! Science is sooooo funny. I am 3 1/2 years older than my sister Becca, so when I was 15 and basically the same size I am…

Little thoughts

Maundering pondering :: redux

Man.  Yesterday’s post really took it out of me.  It’s not easy talking about my skivvies to the entire Internet.  I could hardly sleep last night, knowing that the words “bikini” and “thong” were just… OUT THERE.  Attached to MY HONORABLE NAME. When it comes to entertainment value, anything that I say after yesterday’s post…

Contrast

Nephew report

Brought to you by my brother’s Twitter stream, since we haven’t talked on the phone in ages (probably because his 30th birthday was February 22 and I STILL haven’t sent him a gift, because I am a terrible sister, and if he wants to disown me, he has due cause, even though JEREMY I PROMISE…

An interesting past

“Show me a man with a tattoo, and I’ll show you a man with an interesting past.” -Jack London Have I mentioned that I’m in Nashville this week?  I am. I flew in for a wedding this past weekend (Mark and Erin MILLER – holla!), and am sticking around to work from the home office…

Hope

The other day, this was my Facebook status: As futile as Facebook can be, I took a shot of it because I wanted to remember that moment – that realization that the darkness that I’ve been sitting in for going on a year now just isn’t really there anymore.  Perhaps this is tempting a jinx,…
