Honda

This one goes out to the Honda

I still cannot believe it. – – – – – – – – Yesterday, my dad called the Honda “the Grey Goose.”  Then, Becca called it “Hans.”  Both of these things strike me as hilarious since the Honda never really had a name. – – – – – – – – Remember when the Honda…

The saddest day

I know.  You have been nervously refreshing the page every moment since last Friday, awaiting an update as to the Honda’s fate. Well, people, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I’m alive. The bad news is that if oil were blood, my engine would be the beaches of Normandy.…

The last blog of the year

My sister Sarah recently introduced me to DJ Earworm, who, at the end of each December, creates an epic mashup of the top 25 songs of the year. They are ridiculous. I know I love country music, but Earworm makes me want to be a pop star SO BAD. Check them out – 2007, 2008,…

Mankind, sit up and take note. With one seamless effort, I have – once again – proven myself the best parallel parker in the universe.  Gold medal, AP. – – – – – – – – Here are Julie and Mel, my former roommates who were bridesmaids in a friend’s wedding last weekend.  They are…

Galloping ostrich brain

I am alone in the office this week.  But don’t worry – being alone has never been reason for my brain to get bored.  Au contraire – being alone usually results in my brain galloping full-speed ahead, albeit awkwardly, kind of like that ostrich in “Swiss Family Robinson.” So let me go ahead and tell…

Some things have happened

– I’ve learned who LeBron James is. – My iPod mysteriously stopped working. – So did my deodorant.  (??) – I hooked up Greta and Kristy as friends.  Thinking about going into matchmaking full-time.  If you need a friend in a certain area of the country, tell me – I’ll take care of you. –…

Have I mentioned my state of physical woe?

Last Thursday morning, I was in a car accident.  Don’t worry – the Honda’s fine – or, at least she will be after the other guy’s insurance pays for a new $750 bumper.  Do you know what this means?  I am losing my bumper stickers.  All of them.  No more “FRESH BEER.”  No more “VIVA…

Things you are surely dying to know

And a good Monday morning to you.  Yes, YOU.  Thanks for being here! How are you today? After Friday’s post of sunshine and daisies and love, I spent the weekend in the same blissful state.  I took long walks, had some good talks with friends, and bought a new pair of shoes that Karmen says…

Annie Parsons: Ex-Con

Although I watched the opening ceremonies of the Olympics last week, I have yet to watch an actual Olympic.  However, I must say that I’m liking Shaun White these days.  I don’t know why – I never paid him any attention before.  But isn’t he so likable?  His big smile and happy heart? Don’t you…
