See, here’s the thing.  There’s this pretty little blonde girl on Youtube spouting off about ADHD and how it isn’t real and giving … Read more

See, this is why we can’t have nice things. Like salads.

I recently got back the results of some bloodwork and was shown in black and white what I already knew.  I’ve gotta eat better and I’ve gotta exercise.  Fine. So I’m cleaning and I’m getting hungry and thinking about lunch and brain says, “Hey, you should have a salad”. Yeah, I should have a salad! … Read more

April the Giraffe is FINALLY giving birth!

I’m watching a giraffe walk around with hooves hanging out of her butt. Not exactly her butt, though. Best conversation ever just happened here: Audri: She’s got feet coming out of her butt! Me: Well, it’s not her butt. It’s technically her vagina, they’re just pretty close together. Audri: Feet coming out of her vagina?!?!? … Read more

I give up. I can’t do it anymore. I quit.

Huggles

How many times has this phrase come out of your mouth? “I can’t do it anymore.” If you haven’t spoken it aloud, how many times have you thought it? A dozen? A million? Take chicken I’m not even talking about the pressure to be supermom along with superwife and superemployee and superwhatever all at once. … Read more

Birds are scary, I don’t care what you say.

I don’t know if it was something that was going to happen anyway or if it was something triggered by my viewing of Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’ that sent me over the edge, but it’s here. I’m afraid of birds. I’m not birdophobic or anything, as is made obvious by my technical term “birdophobic”. I don’t … Read more

If someone tells you they’re a sociopath, run. Quickly.

My parents have been together since high school and are still going strong.  My grandparents were together until the day my Grandaddy passed away.  Sociopaths don’t run in my family.  I just assumed that my love life would be relatively uneventful.  I’d meet my guy, we’d fall in love, have babies and live happily ever … Read more
