My Brown Ribbon Campaign

8 Nov

www.medindia.net

Have you ever looked up the list of awareness ribbon colors?  Holy moly.  There’s a BUTTER CREAM ribbon.  It is, I kid you not, for lactose intolerant individuals.   The brown ribbon stands for colorectal cancer awareness, or 8th place. I chose brown for my campaign because my favorite alcohols are brown.  I really like dark, [...]

How the Other Half Lives

BettyBoopTheCleaningLady

[Photo: photobucket khunPaulsak] I know a girl who has a cleaning lady. A CLEANING LADY. Think about that. Now, here’s the part where I say I don’t actually want a cleaning lady.  I mean, they only clean.  They don’t organize or straighten or sort or any of those other things.  I don’t sit on the couch, staring [...]

A Week in the Life

25 Jun

I saw on the news today (the Today show is totally news, particularly when compared to my other information sources, TMZ and Facebook) that a new poll says 70% of people surveyed hate their job.  Good grief, really??  I have a theory that these people haven’t really thought about whether they hate their job, but [...]

Directions?

29 Mar

lost

As long as I’m not going to be late for something, I kind of like getting lost.  You get to see new things, and you get to figure your way out of whatever you’ve gotten into.  It’s fun!  Try it sometime! I have a general disregard for “directions” and “instructions” and “other people’s ideas.”  Okay, [...]

Mouse House

28 Mar

We have a mouse. IN OUR @!#^ING HOUSE. To be fair (to me and to my borderline housekeeping skillz), the mouse is a result of a basement renovation.  Not a result of tasty treats all over the kitchen floor. I was visiting my mom when the mouse was discovered, which led to all kinds of imagining [...]

Do You Think You Can Handle This?

15 Mar

As I mentioned, I managed to do all our weekly budgeted grocery shopping at fancy pants places last weekend.  One of the things I bought was a chicken.  A whole one.  I’ve never cooked one before.  It seems like a good thing to cook for supper, you know, for your family.  Warm.  Wholesome.  Made with [...]

Going Backwards

I got caught up in the whole Mad Men thing right along with everyone else.  I haven’t caught up with the last few seasons, but I’m totally going to one of these days.  It’s one of my inspirations for the way I do this whole stuck-at-home thing.  You know, the way things “used to be,” [...]

Stupid Lady

1 Mar

sinkshiny

Have you guys heard of FlyLady?  I call her StupidLady.  It’s this cleaning/organizing… support group?  I don’t know what else you would call it.  Anyway, Step One to the FlyLady way of life is, I kid you  not, shine your sink.  “It all begins with a shiny sink!”  She probably greets her family in the [...]

Check, Check, and Check

TSA man

The TSA can’t stop me.  I’ve got my bag on the conveyor belt, my shoes in the bin, my liquids out, my ID and boarding pass handy-but-not-in-the-way, I know not to wear belts or sweatshirts, all that.  I say something nice/clever/supercharming to the dude as I go through the scanner, and then shoesbackon and I’m [...]

Fruits & Veggies

mwah

This 5K thing may not hold a permanent spot in my life.  I haven’t yet learned to listen to pain until it completely stops me, so I’ve been limping around for the last couple of days (no, I have not completely dropped the baby) swearing up and down that I WILL DO THIS 5K THIS [...]
