I just spent new years and my birthday in bed with the vertigo. This year I actually made plans to do a few things...but was unable to do them due to everything spinning and the fear or projectile vomiting. Well, as the husband said as I lie in bed, green... Continue reading

A.A. Milne, the author best known for his books about Winnie-the-Pooh, was born on this day in 1882. To celebrate his birthday, show us which Winnie-the-Pooh character you think you're most like. I don't think I'm like any of them and I was never much of a fan - but... Continue reading
He's just that funny. The Nasty Show 2 Seriously, the guy with the dummy...not so funny. Nick di Palo...pretty danged funny. Joe de Rosa...relatively funny. Patrice O'Neal? Ferkin' Hilarious. I was cryin'. Continue reading
I had a particularly odd one last night. Very intricate and I am sure I am not remembering the whole thing. But what I do remember is that the dream was about a hurt hummingbird. The bird was sick or hurt or something was wrong with it. I took the... Continue reading
I was in the backyard of my place where I grew up - standing in the area that was my father's garden. It was muddy and nothing was growing but patches of grass. I walked toward the back of the house and I noticed that someone was building a structure... Continue reading
Do you hold grudges against people? Tell us about an incident if you do, and if you don't, tell us how you rise above it. Submitted by Sophie. Is it considered a grudge if you simply wipe them from your radar...forget you ever knew them...Stop being their friend. Or does... Continue reading
Yeah, that was me. I was the person who walked around the duvet aisle just as you yanked that expensive sheet set out of the plastic wrap. I saw you toss the wrap to the floor but you stopped trying to stuff the sheet set in your bag when you... Continue reading
and why you are an idiot if you are against it. Well, not really an idiot - but maybe you aren't seeing the big picture. Awhile back I asked (on my facebook page) for someone to explain to me the hub bub over same sex marriage. I honestly do not... Continue reading
Ok, so I am not a Trek fan, but you can not be my age and not know SOMETHING about the original show. It's pop culture. So here is my quick review as a person not all that interested in Star Trek... If I had to choose a favorite character... Continue reading

August 25th, 7 a.m. the phone rang. I hadn't been asleep long. My sleep is erratic, at best. Some nights I fall out by midnight, some times I lie awake, listening to the radio until the room gathers light and I hear crows squawking in the alley. When I do... Continue reading
First of all, I want to say that I thought the book, "Who Moved My Cheese" was the story of an obsessive/compulsive person working in an office and having a cow over someone re-arranging the break room fridge. The night of the election the husband and I walked across some... Continue reading

Cookie Makin' Time... I am not a baker. I claim this throughout my blog. But every time I have a success, I have to document it. INGREDIENTS 2/3 cup vegetable oil 1 cup white sugar 1 egg 1/4 cup molasses 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2... Continue reading
In the past I have created a few signature drinks. Back in the early 90's I created Mona's Bubbling Fester and the Urine Sample...both taste waaay better than the names would imply. IRONYYYYY! A few days ago I mentioned drinking a concoction of Bourbon and Green Tea - to which... Continue reading
I've never had a dream where I was relaxing on a beach and nothing happens but waves and breeze. Last night I dreamed I was having an art show on my deck. The house was similar to the house I lived in in Little Rock. We had a deck, but... Continue reading
Seriously. Do I have memory problems or a mischievous ghost in the house? THE BLACK EYESHADOW I have a l'oreal black eye shadow that I use mainly for Halloween and costuming purposes. I used it before Halloween to practice a make up job I was planning for the Parade of... Continue reading

People Ain't No Good The Cramps I just found out that Lux Interior died. That totally sucks and I don't have much else to say about it other than, I godamned LOVE the Cramps. Continue reading
Here's why: 1. My boobs hurt. I mentioned yesterday that I had a most undignified encounter at the Gyn clinic here in Vancouver. My breasts are still bruised and throbbing from that gorilla pawed breast exam I was given. I called the director of the clinic today just to let... Continue reading

Artists in Our Midst 2008 Artists in Our Midst A book I helped produce is now available on Amazon. One of my paintings is also featured in the book, as well as art from other Vancouver artists. Continue reading

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas, one and all! I said, “MERRY CHRISTMAS!” Now, who is offended? You? No? How about you? You aren't either? What? No atheists or Jews out there to correct my blatant display of Christianity? No? Well, someone out there HAS to be offended. I don't know who... Continue reading
Tonight I was looking for a tape. A specific cassette tape from a band called Metro Waste. Metro Waste was an early, southern region punk band. I told a friend that I had a Metro Waste demo. I knew it was somewhere in the house and I told him if... Continue reading

The Greatest Silence http://thegreatestsilence.org/ Since 1998 a brutal war has been raging in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Over 4 million people have died.

If you know me, you know that I am somewhat of a misanthrope. People do things that irritate me, and I have found it is better to seclude myself than run the risk of getting punched in the nose for conveying my irritation in the only way I know how:... Continue reading

I used to write poetry - well, what I called poetry - all the time. Then I got into college and took writing courses and realized that I pretty much sucked at poetry. My prose were just slightly better and my scripts were a little above the prose - but... Continue reading
