Indroducing: Sexy Sundays

Hosted by:  79sparrows “Sunday, Bloody Sunday” in the words of Bono.    The problem with Sunday, is although it is  technically is part of the ‘weekend,’ it also prefaces Monday.   It is that part of the day that my mind wanders to ‘what will I be walking into tomorrow?’   It’s not like I work for Donald…

Bigger Than You Thought

(“thats what she said”) Temperatures have reached a humid, sticky high in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.   Unless you’re interested in sweating out for a detox of some sort, the heat is unbearable, and not sexy at all.  It’s tough to feel cute with droplets of sweat forming on my upper lip and forehead.  I’ve…

Confession

I just downloaded Eminem’s new lp, “Recovery,” off Itunes.  As in, I bought the whole album all at once.  It’s a rare occurence.  Most usually, I pick and choose one or 2 songs from each artist.  Remember when you had to buy the entire cd at once?  For instance:  BON JOVI  /  NEW JERSEY. 1988,…

“Love means going first class.” –79sparrows Life is tricky.   I’m an idealist, but at the old age of 31, I’ve come to terms with certain inalienable truths.  No one but you can save yourself.   Eating late at night will make you fat.  Trust your gut above all else, it is your best friend who tells…

UNPLUG

We have so much to talk about.  You asked where my family lives.  A simple question but I liked telling you all about it. First, allow…

Words to LIVE By

DESIDERATA Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons;…

DAD

Last year on Father’s Day, my father was in a coma.  I didn’t know if we’d ever have another conversation.   For 6 weeks, I waited and prayed for you to give us a sign of life.  The doctors told us not to expect much, or even for you to live thru the night that day…
