You Could Not Pay Me To Shop On Black Friday

If it's one thing I will never understand it's Black Friday. I like to shop. I like to save money. But I don't care for getting the sh!t beat out of me in the process. But that's just me. I prefer to lay in bed and turn on the news and see people killing each other over a half price television. And I am NEVER disappointed. EVER. I used to try to have all of my shopping completed by Thanksgiving. It's just how I rolled. But now I have major…

The Only Thing I Learned From Giving Up Drinking: I’m No Quitter.

Nothing. I learned nothing. Not one freaking thing. Actually that's not entirely true. I did learn just how insanely disorganized my life really is. And that's going to take lots of alcohol to forget again. But I'm up for the challenge. I also learned I need alcohol to sleep. I need alcohol to deal with stress. I need alcohol just as much on sunny days as I do on rainy days. Maybe even more so. I also learned to feel. And if it's all the same to you, I just…

We Need to Stop Using the Word Gay as a Derogatory Term. Now.

I am a writer. I love words. Words have power. Words have the ability to make someone feel amazing. Yet they also have the power to cut someone like a knife. When I was growing up, it was perfectly acceptable to use the word gay. It was used to describe something you thought was stupid or dumb or ugly. I can't remember once in my life ever being told not to use that word, that way. That perhaps it could be offensive to someone. But it was a much simpler…

More Amazing Comments I Have Received. Some People Are Really Mean. And I Love It.

I would like to thank everyone who left a crazy-ass message on my blog. Without you, I wouldn't have a topic to write about each month. And the messages get better (worse) and better (worse) each time. Candy Hello. Are you a supplier for a wire hanger making machine? It was hard to read this without spitting out my wine. No, no I am not. Clearly Candy didn't spend one iota of time actually reading my blog. Nor is she a Joan Crawford fan.  Jesy What an unfortunate blog name.…

You Want To Put What Where? People Are Not Happy With Target’s Bathroom Policy.

There's been a lot of talk lately about Target's not new policy to let people use the bathroom of the gender they identify with. There's been even more comments. And if it's one thing I love, it's to comment on comments. There are 7.125 billion people in the world. 500,000 of them signed an online petition to boycott Target. Because everyone knows that the best way to really hit a company where it hurts is to sit on your ass and type your name into a computer. To be honest,…

Going to the ER is Painful. Even When You’re Not the Patient.

I really don't know where to begin with this one. On Friday night my Aunt Batsy called me to tell me she fell. She just had one knee replaced and was coming home from therapy. It was the bad knee that still needs to be replaced that gave out and caused the fall. She said her ankle was swollen and she was in pain. I immediately sent a group text to all of the parties involved. When we got to her house, she acted surprised to see us. She asked…
