how’d i get so SMRT?

April 5, 2010

Grocery shopping to me is a hobby.  Maybe you could even call it a leisure activity.  Simply put, I love it.  List or no list, I can wander those aisles aimlessly for hours, any time of day, regardless of how busy the store is.  Wegmans has always been a fav of mine, and visiting my […]

This is not working.  I’d had great plans of pounding out an awesome post about my trip to Chicago last week, flush with photographs I’d taken (before my camera battery died), giving you all chuckles while eagerly awaiting the details on the future of my writing career. Then I was going to go for my […]

someone can’t keep their mouth shut

April 1, 2010

Many of you that read this blog know me in real life. Many of you also know last Friday I got a bug up my ass and seemingly out of the blue decided to take a long weekend in Chicago. I had a great time visiting with my friends Andrea and Anthony.  But… it’s time […]

chirp, chirp

March 22, 2010

A week ago I left my position at a bar just outside of Rochester, NY, where I’d been since they opened this past July.  There will be no sharing of the reasons for leaving on here today; I may someday, but not just yet.  (One of my favorite bloggers, Heather Armstrong, expounds on why you […]

spoon donations welcome

March 12, 2010

We have a very limited amount of spoons in the house.  Why do I not go out and purchase additional spoons?  This one’s not chalked up to being lazy… it’s more that when I’m at Target I’m in a happy place, not thinking about bad things at home like my Least Favorite Household Chore List. […]

that girl.

March 5, 2010

“Really…” (extended pause while major brain activity causes face to smush up in unattractive way) “… Kyle?  Did your parents want a boy?” Part of my job entails meeting new people.  I have to play nice and make sure they’re happy.  I get the aforementioned question almost daily… some days it’s thrown across the bar […]

haven’t i seen you before?

March 3, 2010

I’ve got friends who have gone on successful dates with online dating programs. I’ve got friends who currently have profiles up with online dating programs (and I wish them, male and female, all the luck and happiness in the world with results.) I’ve got friends who have gotten married to the men they’ve met with […]

pineapple love crumble

March 2, 2010

There’s no point in hoping I’ll ever go completely raw in my diet- there are some things (like steak) that will always be on my plate that just don’t seem to fit with the “uncooked” idea.  (Yes, steak tartare is wonderful but I can’t make that for myself.  Get real.)  I really like trying out […]

the workout, month one

February 27, 2010

Intro. Day 1- Ok.  I can do this.  Even though the dvd player did this funny skipping and rewinding thing and I couldn’t finish the last 10 minutes, I think I’m going to be able to do this. Day 2- No way am I getting out of bed @ 7am for this shit, so it’s […]

kitchen sink hummus *Updated*

February 25, 2010

I’ve been desperate to make hummus in my new food processor since the moment I arrived home with it.  I’ve had two recipes (both raw, vegan and gluten free) that I’ve tried previously, but discovered that making hummus in my mothers’ 1970-whatever blender is a bad idea… it makes sad noises, takes forever and the […]

the. cat.

February 20, 2010

Meet the kitty in meh life, Leenah. We celebrate her birthday in August (I can’t quite remember the exact day… or really if August is the exact month either but hey- it works for us.  Don’t judge.)  She came home with me in 2001 when I was going through the “breakup of epic proportions” in […]
