The Worst Valentine’s Day Ever

We’ve all done crazy things for love. Some turn out great, some notsomuch. With Valentines Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some crazy things we do for love. Are you in? Have you ever met a man so beautiful that he takes your breath away?…

Friday Funny: A Cyclist Says What?

DISCLAIMER: Loyal readers, you KNOW I like to poke fun of just about everything. I mean I once wrote a humorist rant about sedation gynecology (still think it’s a good idea if for no other reason it keeps me from saying something stupid to my doctor like “Oh that’s so gonna cost you a roofie.”) so you…

2011 in review per WordPress

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people.

Happiness is a choice.

Kirstie Alley wrote it. Melissa Gilbert retweeted it and so did I.  – “What does it feel like to be happy?” It feels swell..I highly recommend it…takes LOTS of work..;)” I am in the process of making my very first quilt ever. I’m not doing it alone. I’m working side by side with several other…

Oh the Humility! This isn’t your Mama’s Schwinn.

When it comes to learning new things, I am like a two-year-old with a “me do it myself” attitude, only with better resources. Blame it on my DNA if you must, or the fact that I was raised by a boomer to be independent. Who knows. Either way, I’m a book nerd through and through, and…

Fisher’s Of Men – or – How I Met My Husband.

I am 22 when my boyfriend decides to dump with the classic line of “It’s not me, it’s you.” I am crushed. Inconsolable even. Drunk on Hagen Daz ice cream and dreams of what could have been (AKA self-pity in over drive), I am a horrible mess. In a moment of what I can only…

Personal Foul, 15 yard penalty, repeat first down. I just told that man I thought I was stupid! UHG… Have you ever listened, and I mean…

Monday Update: Cycle Date 09 and counting

I fully planned on keeping track of how many miles I ride on my new bike, and did not do that last year,  therefore I figure it best to start over and track from the first of this year. That would be easier. Cycle Date 09 — as in January 9, 2012 I have ridden…
