Alright... This is my rant about the recent SCOTUS decision and the corporations that think they should be able to make moral decisions on my behalf.
I'll write slowly so that all of the idiots out there can understand me.
First of all, if I see one more all-male panel on… Read full post »
This is kind of embarrassing, but in service to other OSers out there who may be considering what I just went through, I'll sacrifice my dignity and share my story.
I'm really into "natural" products and have successfully switched from bottled shampoo and conditioner to an all natural bar form.… Read full post »
About 5 years ago, while on my way to work for a meeting, I saw this small furry thing in the road up ahead. As I passed, I saw a tiny kitty's face looking up at me and some blood in the road. I pulled over, sure that I would… Read full post »
I'm a firm believer in the scientific method. So when I'm confronted with a nagging question, I set about to answer it with steadfastness and tunnel vision. And I don't let up until I reach some sort of resolution and feel like I can move on with life once again.… Read full post »
I'm fortunate to live in one of the few parts of Miami that can (almost) be mistaken for Paris, with it's quaint shops (all within walking distance), great restaurants, and little cafes. When I have a free morning, I walk the few blocks to my favorite french bakery. The two things… Read full post »
I've been owned by various cats for 40 years. And while they all have certain personality traits in common (aloofness, independence, cleanliness), I've found that there are some unique traits that not all cats share.
First, let's examine SINK CAT:
Sink Cat is usually found in warm… Read full post »
As my recent post about dating got a few responses from men who felt I was unfair and one-sided, I wanted to redeem myself and post something more positive. So here it is... Ten (mostly nonsexual) things I LOVE about men:
1- I love the way men smell, especially when they're… Read full post »
This is a question I've been thinking about a lot lately... how much of your identity is based on where you live? If you moved somewhere else, would you still be you, or would there be a shift in how you think about yourself?
I've lived in Boston, LA, and… Read full post »
I woke up this morning to a bed full of cats... 3 to be precise. My first thought was "Oh, they love me so much that they want to be near me all night!" As my haze of sleep wore off, the proper side of my brain activated and I was… Read full post »
Willow is my favorite movie, hands down. I wish I could say my favorite was some foreign cinematic masterpiece, or a philosophical journey, or a serious documentary about saving the world, but I guess when it comes down to it, I'm shallow just like everyone else:)
Princess Bride was almost my… Read full post »
Here's what I've learned in 25 years of dating:
- Don't sweat it when he checks out other women... at least you'll know he's not gay!
- The more prepared you are to have sex, the less likely it will actually happen.
- Never use a ring tone by your favorite band … Read full post »
After a week of not speaking to my boyfriend of 4 years, I sent him a text. I asked "Is this what you want?" No reply yet.
We've been through this before. We've broken up for real twice in the last 2 years. After the first time (which was for 4… Read full post »
For all of you NewYorkers:
I'm the girl that cries on the AirTrain to JFK. You've probably seen me quietly sobbing... as it does that slow loop from Jamaica station through the terminals. I usually have my hair hanging half in my face to try to hide my… Read full post »
So, I'm in this long distance relationship which has been a roller coaster, to say the least. We love each other, we're good friends, and we decided to try to make this work as we wanted to have our own lives, yet didn't want to break up when he got a… Read full post »
I've had cats for my entire life. I've always had a natural affinity for them and while I'm not entirely a crazy cat lady, I do love their weird habits. They have a knack for distracting me when I'm most stressed, busy or otherwise ignoring them. One can argue that… Read full post »
About 4 years ago, I ended an 11 year relationship with a really nice guy who probably deserved a much better girlfriend than me. We never actually married, but had bought a house together and had both just sort of assumed we would always stay together. Ahhhhh, the innocence of youth!… Read full post »
I used to work in a recording studio where I would do everything from getting coffee to working with bands on recording their music, basic wiring, and setting up and tearing down equipment. I was lucky to be paid my measly $5 per hour, but that wasn't what was bad about… Read full post »
