I Bought a New Horse and Now I’m Poor…

Yes, I realize it’s been over seven months since I last posted to this website. Many bloggers (or for me, “blogger”) would spend two paragraphs explaining why they were absent from their own digital space. The thru-line always being “I’ve just been too busy and important for this site, LOL!” Let’s skip it. Last week I… Continue reading I Bought a New Horse and Now I’m Poor…

Merry Christmas 2016 & My FANTASTIC Year in Review…

Merry Christmas everyone! As you were awoken at 2 am, then 3 am, maybe 5 am by your precious, cherub-faced children who destroyed Christmas presents like the barracuda eliminated Nemo’s siblings (too soon?), I was in bed. Not that being up multiple times during the night isn’t fun. I’m sure you had a scream of a time trying not to… Continue reading Merry Christmas 2016 & My FANTASTIC Year in Review…

Debunking the Myth: “Looks Don’t Matter”

“Looks don’t matter,” is an oft cited platitude typically uttered by someone already coupled off with a partner they find attractive. But when addressing a single person? Well looks shouldn’t matter, you shallow little love beggar. If you have your hands out hoping someone takes pity on you, be grateful for the cathedral gnome ringing the church bells.… Continue reading Debunking the Myth: “Looks Don’t Matter”

Debunking the Myth: Single People are NOT ‘Too Picky.’ Stop Saying It!

We interrupt the professional matchmaking blog series to address a pervasive myth all single people hate hearing and debunking on the regular: we’re single because we’re “too picky.” I’m hitting this topic now, for after my last post, a number of singles told me they’d been wanting to say everything I’d written, but held back out of politeness.… Continue reading Debunking the Myth: Single People are NOT ‘Too Picky.’ Stop Saying It!

Do You Know your Personality Type? Here’s Why You Should…

“Have you ever had your personality tested?” is a question I ask with great frequency. Because, as Shakespeare advised, it’s a good idea to know thyself. I am an INTJ. If that letter combination makes your face contort like you’ve smelled your own flatulence, allow me to explain as you light a match for that fart. It won’t… Continue reading Do You Know your Personality Type? Here’s Why You Should…

Why I’m (Reluctantly) Re-Joining Facebook. And Why I Left in the First Place…

“Reluctantly” isn’t a strong enough word. I’m rejoining Facebook the same way a seven year old enters a dentists’ office for a molar removal. Without Novocain. Because it’s been lovely without Facebook. It’s been bliss to live without the tedious, mindless updates. Without the constant “so and so changed their profile pic!” notifications. I’ve loved not knowing… Continue reading Why I’m (Reluctantly) Re-Joining Facebook. And Why I Left in the First Place…

This Christmas I Bellyflopped into a Sugar Coma…

If the “calories in, calories out” model were true, in order to burn off everything I’ve shoveled into my body over the past two weeks, I’d need to run around the earth three times. Maybe with a weighted pack. You know, to err on the sweaty side. Normally I’m that girl who walks around the… Continue reading This Christmas I Bellyflopped into a Sugar Coma…
