9 more to go: On positivity.
I’ve noticed a trend lately in social media of talking a lot about positivity, positive energy, thinking positively and other similar platitudes around how our attitudes impact our lives and the world around us. I get very polarized around this sort of thing. On one hand, I think trying to be positive is a good thing for an individual and their overall mental/emotional well being. But I don’t...
10 more to go: Why Wonder Woman?
37 years ago tonight, the pilot episode of “The New Adventures of Wonder Woman”, with the head-scratching title of “The New Original Wonder Woman”, aired for the first time on national television. At the tender age of 2 and 3/4s, I can’t say for sure if I watched it. But I know I was there for most of the original, three year run of the series. And for many more...
12 more to go: Give the drummer some.
Above is one of my favorite photos of my playing the drums. It was taken by the ever talented Geof Teague at the “farewell for now” show my longest running band, Ex-Boyfriends, played before going on hiatus in 2010.

13 more to go.
I’m always envious of memoirists. It seems like such a baffling concept to be able to look back at your life and retell it in such detail. And while I realize that a lot of people who do so have kept extensive, detailed journals, I always assume they’re lying just a little bit. I mean, sure, I can remember snapshots of various moments of my life, but enough to fill a book with a clean,...
14 posts from now and I'll be at 5000 posts.
I’m thinking of stopping at a nice, round number like 5000. This is a lot of time wasting and protracted distraction. I’ll still do my hair blog and follow people there. But this has begun to feel like something I don’t need to maintain.
“I wanna lllllick it! I wanna lick it! Head to toe! Head to toe!”
“SINGLE AND LLLLLOVING IT!!!” I think this is the introduction of Helen Madden, Licensed Joyologist; one of my favorite Molly Shannon characters ever.

And, in another episode, “She’s a very resourcefur girl.” I’m just assuming it’s an homage to Maya Rudolph on SNL. Like Carol Burnett tugging her ear at the end of each episode as a message to her grandma.
