The Lease Is UP

$75.00 to fill my gas tank!! Superdude gave me a car for my birthday. I LOVE, love my Acura MDX but it’s eating gas with the endless kid drives from here to there. And my trips into the city are getting more and more expensive – the gas is pricing me out of shopping in […]

Comment to Teen Tidbit

You mean we have more to look forward to!?!?!?

Teen Tidbit

Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.   –Socrates, Fifth Century B.C.

A party invitation:

People predict preeminent participation and portend prodigious partaking of potions post haste producing prolific portions of pellucid propaganda, political prophesying and provocative proselytizing (and perhaps some positively punchy puns)! Patronage in partaking in this particularly piquant pastime permitted: Potential for plentiful Patron, Pinot and other premium paraphernalia! Partake in plucky persiflage! Perforate your perspicuity!

Jenny Jenny

Last night my 11 year old son came home from Boy Scouts with a phone number written on his palm. I asked him if there were girls at the meeting nowadays. He replied, “No. My friend Alex wrote this on my hand. It’s Jenny’s phone number.” Jenny who?” I questioned. “I don’t know,” he told […]

Horizon Explosion or the $200.00 lunch milk

I left my yoga class yesterday feeling very relaxed and zen, but knowing I had to run some errands in the afternoon. And, lo and behold, there’s Nordstorm’s – and hey, I just happen to have my Nordstrom’s “to-be-returned” bag in my car. I had bought a bunch of shirts and such for my ultimate […]

Not A Mombshell Today

Mombshell? Arriving at a Thank You Luncheon at a friend’s house for school volunteers, I realize that I’m both exhausted and wearing my most comfy grunge clothes. My hair is pulled up in the twist I’d used to wash my face earlier this morning. Smartly dressed women trickle into the event fashionable, and fashionably late, […]
