I Am A Trovert

7 Nov

hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com

I recently sat next to someone in a group that was NOT Introverts Anonymous who introduced herself like this: “Hi, I am Sally and I’m an introvert.” Her name isn’t Sally, I made that up.  Also, that turned out not to be the most interesting thing about her. There has been a lot of buzz on [...]

In Which I DID THINGS

22 Aug

bonbons

I flew solo last weekend, so obviously there was much feet-up and bon-bonning… Yeah, not at all.  I kept myself as busy as humanly possible, and even did some NEAT STUFF in there. Among the more-ordinary-but-still-fun things were meals with friends, walks to the park, and iced lattes.  Cold and caffeinated?  I’ll take 6. Saturday [...]

We’re Like Family

16 Jul

I mustache you a question… [Photo: barnorama.com] One of the things I always told clients I like about the large company I (sort of technically don’t) work for is that our meetings always feel like a big family reunion.  In a big room, you might not know everyone, but you know someone who brought them [...]

Oh Hi

24 May

all you can eat

So, I’ve been busy.  I mean, not THAT busy, but busy enough that I forget how to do dishes and not burn dinner and sit down and write things. But now I’m back.  To sum up: We went on a family vacation.  A cruise, in fact!  That was a big first for me, on all [...]

Well, Do Ya, Punk?

20 Mar

shamrock

I ran the Get Lucky 7k this weekend.  The whole thing.  And now I have a “finisher’s medal,” which I sort of object to in principle – I did not win, I am not a winner – and a sweatshirt that says “7K & Half Marathon.”  I’m comfortable letting people assume I ran either one. [...]

You’re Not Supposed To Be Drinking

8 Mar

stressed

I had a job about a decade ago that caused me to stress out, gain weight, and crab at anyone inside of a 13-mile radius.  It’s a complete wonder that my roommates from those years still love me, but they claim to.  They may still have drinking meetings about me, though, who knows.  Anyway, I [...]

Getting Carded and Traveling Mit Bebe

14 Jan

Who would be offended?? I didn’t realize that I had hit the age where there were men for whom I am too old.  There was a new bartender at my regular bar (which I’m hardly ever inside of anymore, which could possibly have been my first clue) and I asked one of the guys how [...]

Yeah, well it’s snot

27 Dec

pressy

I moved to Minnesota in 1998 to go to college.  When I came back from Christmas break that first year, I ran into a guy I knew at the airport shuttle dropoff site.  We checked our mailboxes and headed back to the dorm.  The whole time we were walking, I kept rubbing at my nose. [...]

Very Recent History

30 Oct

not

I used to get all my best ideas in the shower.  Since I retired, though, I don’t seem to have any ideas, nevermind good ones.  Until today. Most of the blogs I follow do some kind of weekly summary.  I think I’ll start doing this, too (shower genius), since my life now seems to happen [...]

Fruits & Veggies

23 Oct

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 [...]
