2 thoughts about 2 items on the radio

This evening, I drove Pearl down to Selinsgrove to meet up with my mom and spend her Thanksgiving break with her grandma, learning all about consumerism. I used to listen to Jagged Little Pill over and over and over. I did not remember many of the lyrics to “All I really want,” but the song […]

good news, and do blogs need themes?

Good news: I get paid 3 days early. Pearl is a healthy weight/height per the pediatrician. Thursday is Thanksgiving Do blogs need to have themes? All the blogs I see are about a specific thing. Nobody, who is successful at blogging, has a blog as schizophrenic as mine. I should get a theme. I know […]

Send a sympathy card and maybe an inspirational book to dear, dear people who have lost someone. Do laundry and clean our house. Purchase 10 grocery items and replace […]

So I’m in the shower thinking about how my multi vitamin is working because I’m losing less of my hair now (ah, 30). Pearl’s new bottle of bubble bath catches my eye. It is Mr. Bubble. I practically forced her to get it, because like Dum-dum wrappers, the Mr. Bubble T-shirt offer always fascinated me […]
