Trade ‘ya

I have decided that one of the things the universe is missing is a “toddlers for teenagers” swap. Parents of toddlers are up to their eyeballs in keeping their little kamikaze children from killing themselves while learning to climb the stairs, keeping them on track with the potty, and keeping them fed with wholesome, organic, […]

The 5 Things Game

I was looking through my book o’ideas and one of the prompts is “5 Punch Lines in Search of a Set Up.” In keeping with my rebellious streak (which includes things like going to MBA school because I was tired of working and yelling at my GPS because I will NOT be bossed around) I […]

What’s in your bag (non-celebrity version)

I used to read a lot of celebrity gossip type magazines, and one of the weirdest, yet most accessible features in them was when they asked some random celeb (now it’s mostly reality “stars” who I’ve never heard of) to dump out their bag so we mere mortals could see what they carried around while […]

What Career Was I Meant For?

Recently a Facebook Quiz titled “What Career were you meant for?” popped up, as Facebook quizzes often do.  And while I am skeptical (read that as “I know this is bullshit”) of the scientific basis of these things, I did it anyway. Because at some point in my life I should probably figure out what […]

Whatchamacallit

If you’ll remember, I accidentally acquired a most awesome fella a while back. He’s tall and sweet and smart and strangely always exactly the right degree of warm. Which is important in a person you spend time up close to, I think. Everything is awesome, except for one tiny itty bitty conundrum – what to […]

About Me – The End

Well that was educational, right? Who’s next? 91) What is your favorite word? Spectacular. It is both enthusiastic and subversively sarcastic at once. 92) How do you feel about tattoos? Intrigued. Yet, not going to do it. 93) Do you have any pets? I feel like we already did this one. Yes, one small bad […]

Su di me – il penultimo capitolo

Penultimate is a cool word. Especially in Italian. Have I mentioned that 100 is a LOT? 81) What’s the worst injury you’ve ever had? Most dramatic (possibly also worst?) was when I smashed the sh*t out of my chin on the edge of a swimming pool and turned the whole thing red with my 10-year-old […]

Me – Part Eight

Coming in the home stretch here…beginning to wonder what comes after this. 71) Do you like guacamole? Yes. Yes, I do. 72) Have you ever been in a physical fight? I have not. I frequently tell my children that I am willing to learn how to beat up whoever is causing them trouble, but I don’t […]

Все обо мне – Часть седьмая

Yes, I wrote that in Russian. Google Translate is ‘da bomb. Onward…  61) If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, which would it be? I am a little hung up on why I would ever HAVE to be named after a state. Would that be a court order of some […]
