Ugh.  Cold. Damp. Dark. It has been altogether dreary here for the last week.  And only slated to get drearier. I have always had a hard time waking up in the cold.  I know that somewhere in my distant ancestors there was a subspecies of humans that hibernated through the winter months.  Cold, dark movie […]

Once again, I have lured you into the illusion that my mind is occupied with deep thoughts.  This is not entirely dishonest – it is, a great proportion of the time, which will be fodder for my next post on how I can honestly leave the house with my shirt inside-out.  More than once. But […]

If you are reading this, this means you. I am very bad about replying to individual comments on my blog.  There are a multitude of reasons for this.  Sometimes I am genuinely swamped with work.  Most times, the fault lies in the fact that I am a fundamentally shy person, and I agonize about sounding […]

But I have had several of my more MySpace-addicted friends indicate to me that they really miss the auto-notifications that MySpace sends out when a blog is updated.  While most of you know my generally low opinion and eye-searing avoidance of MySpace, I will have to say, it is one of their more useful auto-features.

Dear Madam Governor, Thank you for your kind invitation to apply for “The Road Home” assistance grants to help rebuild my home that was destroyed in Hurricane Katrina.  Coming sixteen months after I was displaced, I hope you can understand that I had to make other plans in the interim.  Thankfully, I have the luxury […]

I did something horrible last night.  Something I am truly ashamed of. I struck my son. I honestly didn’t mean to.  It was a complete reflex action, born of shock and surprise. Normally my evenings until nine o’clock belong wholly to Harry.  I don’t get to see him eight hours out of every day, and […]

Okay, so I missed the first day. It’s still new isn’t it?
