COLLEGE FOOTBALL, HEAR ME SNORE

I missed a golden opportunity over the holidays to write about something very important to me. Something that is a special part of my life.  And by "special" I mean "sucky."  I used to think women were exaggerating about being "football widows." Now I think, "AMATEUR."  (This was my expression through much of the holiday.) … Continue reading COLLEGE FOOTBALL, HEAR ME SNORE

THE OLYMPICS AND OTHER DIVERSIONS

I am writing this for the moment instead of doing the work I should be doing over the weekend so my work week doesn't kill me. But what I really want to do is watch the opening ceremony of the Olympics.

Strangely appropriate considering the confessional nature of this LetsBlogOff assignment: Guilty Pleasures: What's You Favorite Show on Television? I am … Continue reading DESTINATION: GUILTY PLEASURE

TEN MUST SEE MOVIES (IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT)

MY WEEKEND IS BROKEN

I have broken my weekend. It just doesn't work the way it used to. Back when my weekend was working correctly, five o'clock Friday would come, and it kicked in like clockwork. I would spend Friday evening with friends, get up Saturday and work out, maybe do some shopping, pick up groceries, take the dog for a walk, wash the … Continue reading MY WEEKEND IS BROKEN
