Coping Strategies of the White and Privileged

It’s not exactly rabbit like. The eyes are too close together, the ears are too far apart, the eyebrows too developed, but I like it. It’s a rabbit-cat-dog thing and while I worked on it I didn’t feel crushed by the events of the last 48 hours.

One Small Step for My Entryway …

Every few years I undertake a big home improvement project. Thanks to a rather unexpected early repayment of a loan (thanks Lemony!) I found myself with enough money to check off something that’s been on my list for years. The entry. I’ve always had the dream of being able to organize each person’s shoes, backpacks, […]

Dirty Old Lady

I’ve been racking my brain for the female equivalent for dirty old man and all I can come up with is cougar. Well there’s a pleasant surprise. For once the female term is a shade less derogatory than the male term. You know, like the only male word for slut is stud, which has positive connotations. Yes, cougars […]

Dreams, Ceramics, Elk (Items 1051-1066)

I had some great dreams last night. In one I was bonding heavily with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. This is residual LA wish-fulfillment fodder. In the other, Lonny’s “sacrifice zone” (aka eBay room) was cleared out to the point where I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. I want to reappropriate […]

Panic Attack: (Items 180-208)

Yesterday I thought I was having a heart attack. I had a sharp squeezing sensation under my tongue and in my jaw that migrated into my chest. It went in waves and lasted several minutes. I thought maybe it was the flu coming on so I Googled Heart Attack Symptoms in Women and read, “Even though […]
