I do admit I priced airline tickets to Chicago...
But for that money, I could have a heck of a girls’ night out here in Tulsa. It’s not like you’d miss me anyway, right?

@frageelaytwit! She wrote me while I was en route to SF. My plan was to blow off my diet altogether for a week. But since she took the time to write, I made an effort. Fewer tasty snacks were kept in the room. With one exception, I split my meals with Emerson rather than get her a separate kids’ meal. So rather than eating my meal plus whatever of hers she didn’t finish, I saved...

I guess SFTU was better than staying behind in Tulsa when Rod went to Boston. That was not a good weekend for me. My 15 year old dog died. I felt abandoned even though I suggested Rod go by himself. My self esteem, my assessment of my own attractiveness, sense of humor, and social skills were at all time lows. It was that weekend that my Dad’s death a few months before really hit me. Every...

Me: I left my purse on that cab!
Him: (run, run, run)
Me, texting: Found it. Sorry.

I assume this was some kind of drunken prank that the popular kids pull on the band nerds?
It’s cuddle time, dammit!– Rod, when trying one approach of many to get Em to quiet down for her nap
Toddler sleep schedule + time difference
Means we are awake and ready for breakfast when the rest of you fools are getting to sleep. Maybe we’ll cross paths at 4 am for omelettes one morning?
Everybody really wants to meet Emerson!– Rod, after returning to hotel and listing the names of a bunch of people he met tonight. I guess I came along as Emerson’s handler?
What did one meeting say to the other meeting?
Gotta run…I have another meeting.
Love is a Battlefield
For Zolora. I don’t think she follows me though.

It’s a mix of jealousy and disdain. And totally a First World Problem.
Someone whose husband is currently trying to kick cancer’s ass liked my post about feeling overwhelmed and now I feel like a giant douche because none of my stress compares with that. Perspective, folks. And big hugs to all of you out there with real problems. I wish I could take all of your pain away.
Why do all of the stress-generating stars just seem to line up all at once? I need a break. But a break is not likely for weeks.
Lay off Poeks
She has a point. Many of the emails that have gone around have made my stomach sink. While I know most of it has been joking, it still makes me question whether I really want to take four days off of work to hang out with people who are impaired and looking to hook up.
Not all business owners are evil.
Dueling feminist impulses
1) My coworkers threw a baby shower for me two years ago. Now, a male coworker and his wife are expecting a baby in February. Males traditionally aren’t showered with baby gifts the way that females are. For me to organize a baby shower would give a nod in the direction to “Fathers are parents too”. Feminism win. 2) As one of the few women in my department, I don’t want...
Reason #389 we're estranged.
shoesonwrong: My mother in-law divorced Ryan’s dad when Ryan was quite young, but Ryan’s father remained in his life (he still is today). She remarried when Ryan was eight and tried to convince Ryan to ask his dad to give him up so the new husband could adopt him. Why? Because she wanted them all to have matching last names, “Like a real family.” I’m thinking of starting up in-law horror...

Oh, it is so tough living here in the First World.

misseffieb: entropyas: Sorry, but the list of questions at the bottom are pretty much indistinguishable (for me, at least) from an “Are you headed toward an affair?” questionnaire. Thoughts? I don’t think this is as worrisome as you think. Check out the questions again: You consistently rely on a certain co-worker for pens, post-its, mints, candy and over-the-counter medication. You...
OK, Jay and Conan
Whip ‘em out.

Coworkers: OH YUM! That smells like BBQ!

I liked a word I saw last week: Slacktivism
Surprisingly I had never seen the word before, but it is perfect. ”Look at me….I’M CARING!” In addition to the whole bra-color extravaganza, in the last week I’ve been asked to change my Facebook status to support various other cancer causes as well as autism. Get off your butts, people. Instead of buying a $5 latte, give the money to an organization that actually...

While watching TV this evening, one commercial I saw was the ASPCA commercial featuring Sarah McLachlan. It had a slideshow of sad, abused dogs and cats. I was two seconds away from crying. In the next commercial segment, there was a commercial about poor children in Africa. They also looked sad and were in rough shape. No emotional response at all. Why? Surely I don’t think pets are...
