Stop Putting Songs in My Head!

Email friends of mine have successfully put the song “Brand New Key” into my head. It’s been there for two days. Stop it! Stop it! I came up with a book title yesterday. I don’t have a book to go with it, but I’m giving the book title away for free. If you use it, […]

I Hate My Shoes

I do no like my winter shoe selection. I’m quite unhappy with it, to be honest. I don’t have enough very comfortable shoes that are also stylish. It’s hard to keep your feet happy when you have to go to work somewhere with dress code. Granted, I’m not trapped in nylons and high heels (I’d […]

My New Measure of “A Good Day”

If I can say “Well, at least my ass didn’t grow around my toilet seat” I’m having a good day.
