Dinner

Tonight I’m having leftovers. I actually cooked dinner last night. I can cook dinner if I want to, I just don’t always want to. Even less so now that I’m the only adult in the house. I had purchased some sausage over the weekend, and grabbed a few cans from the “pantry” – one small […]

FiveSevenFive

Got involved in a discussion at work about whether or not the word diapers is two syllables or three. You know, ordinary workday talk. I then asked why it was even being discussed, and Tim pointed me to FiveSevenFive, his site. Very cool. He writes haiku about actual news events. What a great niche!

Jody vs. The Masked Beast

Okay, the gloves are off. This is war. Last night I was cruelly awakened by a noise outside my house. I wanted to call the cops, but decided to look out the window first. There he was, all approximately 40 pounds of him. Rocky Raccoon had knocked over the barrel and was dragging it across […]

Update on Lipstick

Hey, I just figured out that the 24-hour CVS in town has a whole new selection of Jane cosmetics. I think that means they just discontinued the stuff they were carrying to carry all different stuff. I cannot recommend their “flavored” lipsticks enough. I’m trying to buy one of each of the good colors while […]

First Day of Summer

My sister’s family went to the beach this morning. How cool is that, going to the beach on the first day of summer? My parents went along to help out, and let’s be frank, to go to the beach. We went to the beach a lot as kids; mom and dad would pack up the […]
