An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

“Today is a good day to die”

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 23:15:04 +0000

Dear god, I can finally talk about it, my mild to moderate fibromyalgia—wait. Sorry. Not that. I can’t get that stupid commercial out of my head from the months of watching “Felicity” on Hulu and having Leta say every word to the commercial out loud...

Our nighttime routine, interrupted

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 20:22:04 +0000

A few nights ago I was putting Marlo to bed—this is how it goes these days, and it’s different from even six months ago: I have her tell Leta goodnight, and she usually does this either in the most adorable or the most annoying way...

Reflecting on the year that was not last year, thank god and medicine

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 13:04:55 +0000

I was thinking back over the last couple of weeks and suddenly remembered, oh my god, Christmas happened! And I survived it! Like one survives forced repeated viewings of The Revenant. Don’t get me wrong, we had a wonderful, relaxing day and woke up to...

Fun with plumbing and potential electrocution

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 14:40:34 +0000

Last night I sent a text message to the cohost of my podcast that eventually turned into a cathartic rant ending with I HATE EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING. I know that sounds pretty dismal, but a few months ago one of our listeners called my cohost...

“They say be with the one that you love”

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 20:27:53 +0000

Last week Spotify released its year end summary of user’s listening habits, including an individualized playlist of someone’s most played songs of the year. First of all, the timing of this is almost as egregious as Costco playing Christmas music the day after Halloween. GRUMBLE....

Decking the dadgumm halls

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 20:32:55 +0000

Anyone who has listened to my podcast recently knows that since I moved into this house at the end of February I have been dreading the holiday season for a completely different reason than I normally dread it—yes, of course I dread it. Whose website...

That no college roommate plotted my slow and painful death is a total mystery

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 16:21:16 +0000

While looking for things to feature in a Black Friday/Cyber Monday round up of deals I stumbled across this t-shirt and immediately thought, if I ever get a tattoo it’s going to be this in giant block letters across my forehead so that no one...

A jump start on the language I do not speak very well

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 19:33:48 +0000

The girls are spending this holiday with their father in NY and I decided to stay home and hang with my family because my favorite pastime is arguing about basic human decency over a giant piece of sweet potato pie. Which reminds me: When I...

Books People Send Me, Installment Seven

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:42:56 +0000

Yesterday morning the kids took mercy on me and didn’t stomp around this tiny house before 7AM, and when it was all said and done I slept for 14 straight hours. I have my theories as to why my body needed that kind of break...

Come for the baby Chuck photos, stay for the vulgarities

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 21:02:39 +0000

In the spring of 2002 just a few weeks after bringing Chuck home from the Pasadena branch of the ASPCA, I was trying to make a cup of coffee while he darted around my feet trying to bite my ankles. That dog was a motherfucker...
