I don’t know when it started, but if I hear Trump’s voice on the radio or TV, my finger automatically hits the off button. Then I keep turning it off and on until I know his voice is gone. It’s the only thing that keeps me from barfing all day. Continue reading →
My cousins Joe and Mary have three children. The oldest boy is married to an ethnic Chinese woman from Vietnam. The middle son is married to a Pennsylvania farmer’s daughter. The youngest, a girl, is married to an African-American. This is coming to you from a family that, just two generations ago, thought when my Uncle Albert (Italian) married Aunt Jean (Polish), the world was spinning slightly off its axis.
When I read about the interracial couple who were stabbed because they kissed in public and some racist thought that was just too much to ask him to bear, my Continue reading →
No, seriously. I look at this picture of my high school senior brother and wonder how that much dorkdom could possibly have had enough room to live in the same house as my enormous dorkdom. It’s the Buddy Holly glasses that make it great. Continue reading →
Am I the only one sick and tired of hearing people say they are supporting Trump but when you ask them what they support, all they can mumble is that he’ll shake up the establishment? Ask them about any specific Trump policy and they respond that he doesn’t really mean to ban all Muslims or build that wall. He’s just saying that. So they are basing their whole support of him on the premise that he won’t do any of the things he’s campaigning to do. Dear lord… even pretzels don’t twist that much. Continue reading →
So it’s one full week with the new website and things are slowly coming into focus for me. Who knows, I might actually conquer this. And then it’s on to my microwave. Can’t wait until I’m skilled enough to program that. Continue reading →
You look as good as ever. Continue reading →
The thing about living in Alaska is that if you weren’t born here, if you came here from elsewhere, you probably left a lot of people behind. I know I did. While I wouldn’t give up the life I have here for anything, I can’t say that I haven’t missed being a bigger part of my birth family. Although it’s been over 44 years, I still miss the siblings and cousins and friends I left behind.
One of those friends will be visiting me tomorrow. She’s special. She got to wear a cape to her high school prom, the most Continue reading →
Apparently if you don’t pick them when they are immediately ripe, and it rains a lot while they are on the branches, they get grey and moldy. Who knew? Continue reading →
Thought I’d save a little money and buy trifocals instead of progressive lenses. Wow. What a mistake that was. I don’t know how anyone handles trifocals unless their glasses are twice as big as mine. All I saw were blurry lines all the time. Made me crazy. Did it for a day thinking I’d adjust. Spent the day nauseated by all the bobbing my head had to do. Went right back to the optician and had them redo the glasses into progressives… thus spending more than if I’d just ordered the progressives in the first place. And this is why Continue reading →
My, oh my. He truly is an idiot. Or maybe just a rich person who never actually had to make friends with or communicate with your average person. But something has to be wrong with this man. His behavior is too extremely bizarre to explain any other way… unless, of course, he’s on acid. Then it all makes sense. Continue reading →
