Month: December 2010

A short post consisting entirely of baseball-related idioms

I’m far from a major leaguer, but I don’t think I’m off base in saying that today I’m throwing you a curveball. This may come out of left field, but today, I’m in a bit of a pickle. It seems that the Natural me is taking a rain check, so screwball me is pinch hitting. …

Holy Môlé

The best LÄRABAR that ever existed was Cocoa Môlé – but earlier this fall, they retired the flavor, so I gnashed my teeth and tore my sackcloth. But late on Friday afternoon, Miranda pointed me toward an announcement on their Facebook wall: We just uncovered 35 boxes of Cocoa Môlé (16 bars/box). It’s the last…

Phone woe

My cell phone plan is with Verizon – because yes, I can hear you now. The best phone I’ve ever had is the LG 8300 – the flip-phone of GLORY, that’s what.  It was perfect – curved naturally to the shape of my face, easy to find at the bottom of a bottomless purse, navigable.…

When I first met Annie several years ago, she was in the beginning stages of writing a book.  She wrote and wrote and wrote,…

Starting tonight

I secretly believed that if I didn’t post any blogs in November, I would still continue to write and stockpile posts so that when December rolled around, I would have an arsenal to draw from. That didn’t happen. At all. In fact, I’m checking my computer for any scraps I may have written that I…

Living proof

I’m baaaaaack… I missed you.  I missed blogging.  Blogging is the only fool-proof way to make sure that someone pays attention to me every day. Just kidding!  People pay attention to me when I steal, too. I made a video, but I’ve been having technological troubles of the worst degree, so it’s fuzzy.  Sorry.  My…
