Pretensious D-Bags and an LA Blow Job

Here I am, at a Hollywood hot spot, post $35 blow out, sporting my “Kelsey” (apparently named after a celebrity I know not) manicure, drinking a glass of $15 Pinot Grigio. All this Hollywood glamour brings only one thing to mind, “Pretensious!” Sitting at Sunset and Vine I’m eavesdropping on some would-be-perhaps-is “Film Guy” pontificateContinue reading “Pretensious D-Bags and an LA Blow Job”

When Women Were Protected and Stupid

6:00 the alarm goes off 15 minutes of yoga Shower, Shave, and Shampoo 7:00 wake the angry, sleepy kids Home-cooked breakfast “where’s my shoes” Hair, make-up, and fighting a stuck zipper Carpool drop off 10 hour work days Cook the dinner, clean up the dinner Laundry, groceries “I need a new Sharpie for school tomorrow”Continue reading “When Women Were Protected and Stupid”

Home Organization: Make-up Brush Holders

I am an addict.Β I am addicted to make-up tutorials and home organization videos. I know, there are more important ways for me to spend my time, but they just don’t offer the same mind-numbing thrill as turning on a good “Get Ready with Me” make-up montage while prepping, primping, and priming for a day atContinue reading “Home Organization: Make-up Brush Holders”

Respecting Men Isn’t Anti-Feminist

I’ve been reading too many cutesy Pinterest articles lately. Seriously. Too. Many. I have adorable workout-clothes crafts, probiotic gluten free vegan muffin recipes, and so many inspirational sayings I could start my own “Van Down by the River” sect. But, the most ridiculous memes I have been noticing a lot lately are the articles remindingContinue reading “Respecting Men Isn’t Anti-Feminist”

Gypsy Cabs and a Rape Whistle

I arrived in Qingdao, China at midnight on a half-full flight of sleepy business men who hadn’t checked luggage. I moseyed my way over to luggage pick up alone and registered the odd fact that the baggage carousel lights were out, but the slow whir produced my lonely green TravelProΒ and black crate full of marketingContinue reading “Gypsy Cabs and a Rape Whistle”

Date Night

The idea of a date night is to take time, unwind, and reconnect. But, with the never ending schedule of summer camp, little league, and an endless to-do list at home and the office, the only “date” I have is with my Serta perfect sleeper. But tonight, with the laundry scales tipping toward done andContinue reading “Date Night”

That Kind of Morning

It’s that kind of Tuesday morning which really should be a Sunday. It rained all night and now the valley smells rich and mossy. My sheets are freshly washed and perfectly crisp, beconing me back to bed. The pot is brewing with more coffee than I can drink in my hectic scramble to get outContinue reading “That Kind of Morning”

Airport Zen

Park and Ride drop offs; shoes-off-tech-out security screenings; gate change; screaming kids; and octogenarians who have never flown before all collide into one frenetic, frustrating, infuriating pulse during the experience that is airplane travel. But, when you travel as frequently as I do (just got my Platinum MedallionΒ welcome kit, WooHoo!) if you let the airportContinue reading “Airport Zen”
