I don't like to indulge in autobiography. I'll leave it for my friends to describe me. I wouldn't know where to begin, and I'm sure I'd struggle with


Beautifulpeople.com and I are not friends. Our relationship was short lived. We had a falling out. Let me start from the beginning.

Beautifulpeople.com is a global web site created solely for the use of the “beautiful.”  How do you know if you’re beautiful?  Well, you ge… Read full post »

Saved By Ashley H.


 I’ve actually started watching The Bachelorette. Why? Well,  I'm not really sure. Like alcoholism or marriage it just kind of happened. Anyway, this Ashley chick falls for this one “bachelor” (Benley) who’s not that into her, and frankly has very little res… Read full post »

I guess because VS Naipaul thinks he has no female equal, it's true.  Personally, I haven't read Naipaul's work so I can't comment on his aesthetic. I've also read that he has a tendency to make others angry, by saying outlandish and somewhat unsupported statements. I'm not going to waste my… Read full post »

I was a Teenage Princess

When I was in high school I was a nerd.

I know what you’re thinking: She wasn’t a real nerd. She just liked to watch Star Wars and sometimes wore her glasses when she lost a contact.

I’m not writing this because I’m trying to be one of… Read full post »

Chemical Burns



Aside from a brief stint as a rock collector in the third grade and an even briefer stint as a slayer of road signs in the 10th grade, I‘ve never really had a hobby. Even in the age of technology, complete with 500 channels on TV and an even… Read full post »

In the land without saviors

I don't think that it needs to be said that it's been a very hard couple of years for many people. Job loss. Savings loss. Lives that cannot start do to no jobs, lives that cannot go sweetly into their twilight years because of the hatchet job that has become their… Read full post »

No one will marry me before the zombie apocolypse comes

It's true. It isn't pretty, nor indicative of the cumulative intelligence of my friends, but it's really real to them: The zombie apocalypse.   Many of them have never even jogged or gotten their required vaccinations and, in their mid-twenties they have the cholesterol levels of my 60-yr-o… Read full post »

Sex in the Kool-Aid Room

I grew up in the far suburbs of Chicago. This past weekend I was spent at my father' house, still located in the tiny, some might call, "provincial" town that I was born in.  Having no real plans for Saturday I asked my father to drive me out… Read full post »
