Goodbye to Yesterday

goodby jeans

This is awkward. I don't want it to be, but it is. We've become the sort of friends that are only friends because we don't know how not to be. After 13 years it's not meaningful, it's habitual. … [Read More...]

Something is burning, and for once…it’s not my soul.

Preface: This post sucks. I have rewritten it 20 times. Feel free to print it out, put it in a paper bag, and light it on fire on someone's porch. I totally would...but I have been out of ink for about 10 years, and my husband keeps forgetting to get me more. I would go myself, but I'm afraid … [Read More...]

Now I have to relive the pain when I pull the little bastard off. Not that I am hairy or anything, but come on, a … [Read More...]

Steak with Ice Cream Sauce

Ok, so when I heard about this little gem the other day, I just had to try it, as I live by a rule of trying recipes that not only sound vomit inducing, but attempt to mix ridiculous sounding sweet things, with the savory dishes I love so much. This is just that kind of recipe. Steak, … [Read More...]

I love sauerkraut.   Can't get enough of it.   My first pregnancy, my favorite meal was a baked potato covered in fajita steak strips, A1 sauce and sauerkraut.   Yuuuuummmm.   Even now, it's all I think about. Like that slutty cheerleader fantasy from American … [Read More...]

Women’s Intuition

You know those girls? The ones you see when you are in line for a movie, or out to dinner, or at a birthday party of some college friend you barely talk to anymore. You can always hear them come in, super loud and giggly, and always ultra shiny and glossed up. You know who they are. You've … [Read More...]
