Sorry Facebook, I’m Breaking Up With You

Sorry Facebook, I’m Breaking Up With You

dearDear Facebook,

It’s with some regret that I must tell you that it’s time to go our separate ways.

It’s not me. It’s you.

Ok, maybe it’s us, but that’s not important.

Motion Sensor Plumbing Etc

I don’t know about you, but I find motion sensor plumbing only works correctly somewhere around 50% of the time As I was in a very modern bath the other day, I found myself pondering just exactly how we got stuck with this crap. (Pun intended).  “If I have to push that flush lever one […]

I was born horizontally and vertically challenged with poor eyesight so God gave me beautiful teeth and a sense of humor. I’m trying to give the latter a workout here.

“Creep Yourself Out”- some musings on Yoga Speak

Anyone who is a regular yoga class attendee, or even taken a few classes is familiar with yoga speak.  “Drop your shoulders”, “rotate your thighs inward”, “balance on the four corners of your feet”, “pull your shoulders (blades), down your back” , “pull your lower belly up and in”.  Some, like “drop your chin to […]

THE SORROW OF YOGA CLOTHES FOR THE HORIZONTALLY CHALLENGED

Here’s the Facebook instant message from my 6ft 8 in 125 pound  (I may be exaggerating his height and weight just a little, but just to keep him anonymous ;))  good male friend that started this rant: “In other news, I’m setting my running ensemble aside for future yoga wear and shopping up some yoga clothes – WTF?!

ZUMBA Class and This Blog’s Two Year Anniversary – an Expression of Gratitude 

Warning:  This may NOT be funny. This blog is about “Gratitude”. ” and I don’t know that I can make this funny.  April 22, 2015 is my two year anniversary of going to ZUMBA class. (And a little over 6 years of tango and almost 7 of yoga, all while gradually changing my diet and […]

Charmed, I’m Sure: A Rebuttal

Charmed, I’m Sure: A Rebuttal

Jenn C, a northern transplant and marketing enthusiast (I’m really not sure what that is, but anyway) recently got Charlestonians in an uproar with her recent blog post. In it she explains why Charleston isn’t the town for her. Well, she upset quite a few folks and seems to be at a loss for why. Lemme ‘splain. Read more

Quitting Sugar or the Descent into Madness. 

I’m sure you’ve read an article (or 779 of them) or heard a news report about the benefits of giving up sugar.  So, I’m not writing about any of THAT other than to point out that while all the touted benefits may be true, any article I’ve seen omits the “descent into madness part”. If […]

Keyboard shortcuts for erotica authors

Keyboard shortcuts for erotica authors

Given the increased sales and attention being paid to the erotica industry…

Did you know there’s Sasquatch erotica in addition to dinosaur erotica and tentacle erotica? I’m not making this up!

And given how poorly written the sex scenes were in 50 Shades of Grey, it stands to reason that these works of art(!) become formulaic over time. It takes a lot of sticky pages to satisfy the lust for reading that many frustrated housewives seem to experience. With that in mind, I’d like to offer some keyboard shortcuts to enable in the word processing software of your choosing so that you can jump on the bandwagon and begin selling your tawdry tentacle love triangle quick. Each shortcut will insert a particular type of sex scene. Use with caution. Read more

Zumba Class and Codeine Cough Syrup

I was going to write that there is some controversy about working out when sick but a quick 10 minutes on the Internet demonstrates that yet again, there was only controversy between my ears. So let me say the clear consensus seems to be that if your minor symptoms are from the neck up, it’s […]

D.A.S.H diet – Deprived, Angry, Sad and Hungry

(or Hopeless, Hostile, take your pick) I think all diets should be called the D.A.S.H. diet. I almost spit out my green kale beet asparagus sawdust juice cocktail when I saw this on the news and then googled it. http://health.usnews.com/best-diet The acronym D.A.S.H really stands for 1. Don’t Ask for Sugar, Honey. 2. Dietary Approaches […]
