We celebrated our 9th anniversary at Bryce Canyon National Park. I had never been there before and Greg hadn’t been since he was a kid. Man, pictures do not do it justice. I thought I kind of knew what to expect, but when we got there and actually walked up to the canyon… you’re reduced […]


The Cruel Truth About Rock and Roll

The Cruel Truth About Rock and Roll This article should be required reading. Ann Powers totally nails it. Loving rock and roll requires engaging with a terrible reality, one that the music itself has not solved and sometimes helped its fans to forget. I think the same could be applied to just about everything and […]

I’ve got a Christmas staycation heading my way shortly. Now I’ve just got to make it through the next two days and then it’s pajama time all the time for a week and a half. I can’t tell you how much this means to me. I bought new pajamas specifically for my staycation bonanza. Me, […]

Oh, Halloween. I love you so, but I seem to never be prepared for you. I had big ideas about getting a costume together this year and having a proper celebration, but  this late in the game, I think it’s going to wind up being a quiet night at home, hiding from unruly teenagers, watching […]

You guys, this Ex Hex record is rocking my world right now. I have listened to nothing but this album since this NPR post with “First Listen” streaming of the whole record. I pre-ordered my copy from Merge Records right away and it arrived just a few days later. I CANNOT STOP LISTENING. I haven’t […]

If you want to know what I’ve been up to lately, it’s lots and lots and lots of Murder, She Wrote: Interspersed with lots and lots of Magnum P.I. (as usual). I know you’re all dying to watch the Magnum P.I./Murder, She Wrote crossover episodes, “Novel Connection” and “Magnum on Ice.”

My house is currently being swarmed, dive-bombed, attacked, and surrounded by moths. I may be forced to stay indoors. Thanks a lot, summer. Thanks a lot.

Turf wars

It’s spring and suddenly I’m battling the kingdom of the spiders for squatters rights in my own home. They’re everywhere. On my pillow, staring at me from the ceiling, scurrying across the living room floor, camping out in the sink. Baby spiders, grown up spiders, hairy spiders, black spiders. Here a spider, there a spider, […]

Dear week, You are going to suck.  You are going to suck so hard. And if Friday was any indication of what’s to come, you are going to mega super suck. So, here’s me trying to do my very best to not let the jerks get me down. Take it away, Judy baby…

Uruguayan Rolling Stones wanna-be rockers. Perfection. It’s about time I owned this baby. We’ve done so much electrical wiring in our house lately, that I can’t look at this album cover now without taking note of the wiring for that light bulb and feeling stressed out. Up until this purchase, I only owned “Other Animals” […]
