So the coverage of the Chi Omega sorority girl, her “little” and her “big” made national news on Good Morning America. I know I was like, What?

Why are cakewalks abused as symbols of all that is easy?  Blog, I have walked for cakes.  If you think I crashed those grade school carnivals for the rides, you’re not that great of a blog.  You n me know better. Yea so I have walked the walks, but NEVER won a cake. Read more →

our future

It’s a bittersweet announcement, Blog: A magazine for teen peanut butter lovers has finally hit the stands. Yes, that’s sweet alright. But what about those of us who didn’t have such a luxury as teens?  Cell phones, splash parks, and now THIS? After considerable reflection, I conclude: I care about most, Blog, about our future.  And our teens are just… Read more →

have a heart

Instead of telling you how much I’ve missed you and apologizing for my absence, lemme just say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

the new deal

Anyway, I’m working on new things and the galleries can be slow in selling.  I know better of your readers, Blog.  ANYONE who sells a… Read more →

my last twenty bucks

Oh, hello, Blog.  Just getting cleaned up here.  Onto my facial routine… The Today show says I can still look good at my age, so I have my mild soap, free of a bunch of different stuff, and my Vitamin C Serum is IN THE MAIL, so I’ll be golden in a few days.  In the meantime, I’ll read some of the reviews… Read more →

to do

TO DO 1.  Look on the bright side when people look at my paintings and say, That’s big, or, It’s nice you have so much wall space, or, I like the frame.  I know that there IS no bright side, Blog, but let’s pretend. 2.  Be glad I know how to weed, talk on the telephone, read, turn a doorknob, sit, watch television,… Read more →

be nice plus get something cool

Blog, I’ve tried sort of hard to support the Made in USA blog I follow, but sometimes a girl isn’t into moccasins or combs like the ones you used to get free with some company’s name on them. My favorite new site is one sharing some really great companies selling quality stuff, for if and when one can suck it… Read more →
