Bio
I often post letters under the screen name "NotMalibuBarbie." But since the blog is more narrative I thought I'd use my real name. I live in Sacramento, and am now in a subsidized apartment, since I have been unable to find a job. I took care of my mother, who has Alzheimer's, for four years. Being 53 and unemployed for that long makes it difficult to get hired. I've been writing my whole life, and sometimes even got paid for it. The good news about having no job is that I have the time to re-up on the writing, and hopefully can sell some of my stuff to the local papers.

Compared to scamming the casinos (oh wait, that was the CEO) this is petty cash.  But aside from some tall tales I told to State Senators  when working for lobbying firms, this is really My Only Con.

Craig's List Is Really "Idiotslist.com"

I think the infamous “all you want and most of the stuff you don’t want” website Craig’s List should be renamed. Instead it should be called “Idiot’sList.com.” 

 I have tried to find apartments, jobs, cars, dates and have been universally appalled aRead full post »

My Dog Doesn't Need Slim Fast

Jack the Dog appears to have become an anorexic.  He was a bulimic  two days ago, since he threw up. Twice.  I did manage to force feed him some Alpo (the crushed kind that he didn't have to chew too much) last night and this morning.  But I'm very worried about  his… Read full post »

Thanksgiving was truly tasteless this year. This is the first year in about 30 I didn't cook Thanksgiving for my 84 year old mother. Mom, who's in the middle stages of Alzheimer's, is living in a very nice board and care home. I didn't visit, since I'm not sure she'd even… Read full post »
