enough already!

I don’t care that Britney Spears was released from the hospital. Really I don’t. I do hope she pulls it together, but the up-to-the-minute coverage I can do without. There’s way too much real shit going on in the world. Five people were gunned down during a hostage situation in the Valley last night/this morning, […]

SUPER TUESDAY [ALL CAPS!!!]

My nerves are aflutter, my fingers, crossed. I can barely wait for the numbers to come in… Made a post office run and a quick Starbucks drive-by before heading to the booth this morning.

2008, Day 2

It’s 2008 and to quote my comrade, Karen Taylor Bass, “Deepness!” I think I’ve finally reached a point in my life where making New Year’s resolutions doesn’t seem to cut it anymore. Those always-broken promises to get in shape and drink eight glasses of water every, single day have gotten a bit stale. Instead, I’m […]
