My husband did it
05/25/2012 22:43:27 PM
Feminists have said for years that women -- especially married women -- should take control of their personal finances -- Never trust a man to do it for you.
WELL -- my husband's been telling me for months that his clients owe him thousands of dollars, and I'm starting to think he's a..
The Golden Rule for writers?
05/25/2012 22:38:23 PM
I'd like to say that I don't feel sorry for myself -- that I never raise my arms to the sky and whimper "Why me?" But I do feel sorry for myself on a rather regular basis, and it triggered a thought on my way home from work today that I am a character in a book -- that all writers are characters in..
Better off comatose -- maybe
05/25/2012 22:33:46 PM
I almost didn't come home from work today -- not because I love my job or my home life is unsatisfying. It's just that so many things went so terribly wrong in eight hours that I feared I would die in a car crash.
To begin with, I didn't get paid -- my paycheck this week was NEGATIVE-$20.90. Eve..
Wish in one hand ...

It's not enough to be sick, poor, exhausted and crazy -- no way. Let's top that poop cake off with a pimple as big as a walnut -- WOOT, WOOT! Now I'm deformed, sick, poor, exhausted and crazy. I was only slightly deformed at sunrise, but being home sick with nothing better to do than poke at my ch..
A little help, Dear
05/25/2012 22:29:30 PM
I keep thinking I can train my husband -- if I write enough about all of the ways he gets underneath my skin; he'll get the message and help me in my endeavors to write the next best American novel.
Someone must either shoot me now or run me down with a car -- save the bullets -- although, ga..
Verbal diarrhea: A family tradition
05/25/2012 22:28:18 PM
There are times when I'd really love to curl up in the fetal position and die -- say I drank too much on a Friday night and I woke up the next day not quite sure what I said or did. The pieces sort of fall into place as the day progresses -- each a little more embarrassing than the last -- and at s..
The writing trap
05/25/2012 22:22:53 PM
All I think about is writing from the moment I open my eyes in the morning all through the day until the sun goes down, and I'm floating in that fuzzy place where my last lucid thought flutters away on paper wings.
And that's where God or Karma or the Devil cues my children to burst through the..

I am one dumb-luck happenstance away from a full-fledged nervous breakdown -- no kidding this time. My back is pretty sturdy by now -- random bouts of unemployment, mounting debt, hooligan children, crazy family members (they're all nuts including me) -- I can carry a shit-ton of crap in my ni..
How do you satisfy your musical needs?
05/25/2012 16:27:01 PM
It is considered as the language that crosses all boundaries and when you stop to think about it you will see why. Every country has their own particular style of beat and whether you understand the language or not, the beat of their songs will always ring true. A quick browse through Youtube and yo..
Online poker is not about gambling
05/21/2012 16:28:16 PM
Some of us have a difficult time finding decent entertainment to help us pass the time and that may be due to the fact that we are looking in the wrong places. It is true that we can get addicted to the movies, but when you really think about it, such an event can only lead to dark theaters, (by our..
