September 27, 2012

August 31, 2012

I took a lot of time deciding how I should write this post, and I deliberated about if I really even wanted to.  Both Dan and I have told the story a number of times, and although I know each time the complete story rings true, it still concerns me that the full issue is [...]

the incident

August 23, 2012

When your boss comes to you and tells you he really likes how you write, you smile, chuckle, and say thank you (especially when writing is not necessarily a main part of your job.) But, when he insists that you really have a special ability to tell someone to “Fuck Off”, and that you may [...]

patience and waiting

July 10, 2011

Those words strung together don’t really have a place in my life.  Typically when things don’t happen for me it’s because of my own lackadaisical approach to life- being an ambitious procrastinator means I may have big thoughts and plans at times, but pulling it all together in the long run is where things tend [...]

March 3, 2011

If you caught me 2 weeks ago, I’d say things have been looking up.  After a whole ‘lotta time wondering if I was wandering down the road towards Old Barmaid’dom, I landed a sweet new gig.  In the wine industry.  Locally.  It’s pretty much “right up my alley”, if all are to be believed, because [...]

I have to get rid of my food processor. This makes me very sad, but I will be replacing it with a smaller fp/ blender combo unit that will fit better in my small kitchen. I posted an ad on Craigslist last night to sell it. And immediately got an email. I thought I was [...]

January 2, 2011

It’s common for blogs to do a year in review and countdowns and such, so I’m jumping on board with my top ten.  That Girl Kyle has only been in existence since this past February, but out of some 70 odd posts so far, here’s the ones with the most reads. 10.  the insanity rant [...]

i’m a jerk… that doesn’t always proofread

August 21, 2010

I’m apartment hunting.  Floor plans are important to me.  One complex I’m researching online is obviously overhauling their website and does not have images available online- so I fill out the request form and ask if a floor plan can be emailed to me.  The following is 100% true and word for word (minus identifying [...]

fortune cookie humor

August 9, 2010

I love fortune cookies.  I love the surprise, secret, suggestive nature of them.  I eat the cookie before reading my fortune because otherwise the fortune loses it’s cosmic sway.  When eating fortune cookies with a group of people I instruct them that they must do the same… then everyone must take a turn and read [...]
