I Wear Earbuds To Avoid You

It seems as if half of my day at work is consumed with avoiding people.  I just want to be able to go from Point A to Point B and not have to stop for meaningless chit chat.  We are all plagued with the empty "Hi! How are you?" when we pass someone we know … Continue reading I Wear Earbuds To Avoid You

The Tale of the Little Train That Couldn’t

I've been riding the train to work for about a year and a half now. It is never something I am excited to do (because people smell so bad I cry before boarding the train, people are gross, and people are stupid and beyond professional help), but it sure cuts down on the Atlanta commuting … Continue reading The Tale of the Little Train That Couldn’t

The Ups and Downs of Escalators and Elevators

Another year is underway.  Another month is passing that reminds us each and every day that the job we have is not the job we want.  When did we roll over and submit to being trampled by the big corporations who inundate us with a false sense of loyalty?  Is there time to make a plan … Continue reading The Ups and Downs of Escalators and Elevators

Things I Don’t Miss From Retail

Change.  We've heard about it our entire lives.  We know it's inevitable.  We know we're not supposed to always fear it or be opposed to it.  But let's face it; 99% of the time we don't WANT the change.  We are happy with the way things are -- That is unless you work in retail … Continue reading Things I Don’t Miss From Retail

5 Reasons Public Restrooms Gross Me Out

Men and women are different.  And I am not referring to gender equality, #WomenOn20s, or even the fact men still make more money than women for the same job.  There is no real political or socioeconomic agenda here.  It just comes down to basic biological differences.  Other than the epiphany we all learned from cute, … Continue reading 5 Reasons Public Restrooms Gross Me Out

No Room For Douchebags

Snow and ice storms are ripping through the South.  Trees are spilling onto the roads due to the weight of the ice on their branches.  Schools, businesses, and government agencies are delayed and closed.  Temperatures plummet to historical lows.  With all that being noted, I just received a text message from my boyfriend that he … Continue reading No Room For Douchebags

The 8 Stages of Busting Your Ass

As brilliant and perfect humans, we always know what we can and can't do most of the times.  There are things we know are inevitably going to happen here or there, despite any preparation.  We know these things so well that we consider quitting our day job and turning tricks in the carnival as a fortune-teller … Continue reading The 8 Stages of Busting Your Ass

Beer Appetizers and Chocolate Wine Dessert

Had a great weekend with friends, food, and adult beverages.  We hosted a few friends at our house this past Saturday; as usual, the day started with a gorgeous sunrise that led to a cleaning frenzy.  One can never clean enough with a cat in the house.  At 11 o'clock I took a break from … Continue reading Beer Appetizers and Chocolate Wine Dessert

Drink Your Juice, Shelby

Let's face it.  There are just some days where you start to feel like Shelby Eatenton Latcherie looks/behaves in the iconic scene from Steel Magnolias where we learn she has diabetes.  Usually the reason will not matter in a few hours or even a few days, but you still cannot help feeling paralyzed by whatever is causing this … Continue reading Drink Your Juice, Shelby

How To Survive A Horror Movie

I love horror movies.  Sometimes I wonder what I would do if I could time travel.  Would I go back to change one day?  No.  Would I gallop across the space-time continuum with the Doctor and document all my adventures?  No.  Well, YES.  But that is not what I want to focus on.  I want … Continue reading How To Survive A Horror Movie
