A Few Stripper Stuff Clarifications….

I feel like I would rather write about this stuff after it is all ‘processed’, but maybe I will be doing that work on my blog. Anyway, I can’t resist the urge to clarify a few quick points.
I am not making a statement with regard to whether or not adult entertainment is an inherently ‘good’ [...]

Stripper Stuff

I rented a short term (6 month) condo for David and me. It is a comfortable place that we can share. I love that I don’t have much stuff, as I am especially aware of it in this space.
When I moved into my Mini, I still had about a half of a single garage’s worth [...]


I am kind of freaking out about how much information I post on this blog, but I can’t really come up with a logical reason for why I should be.
At this point, it is not so much that I am afraid people are going to find out these things about me (okay, maybe there are [...]

A brown turtleneck

I went online to buy this brown turtleneck that was on sale for $25.90.

Then I decided that since I wear these almost everyday, I should order four.
Then I saw this Steve Madden jacket. Man, that would look great over a brown turtleneck.

50% off and marked down to $48.90.
Then I saw these boots. Wow, this is [...]


“You might have hair loss and weight gain.” The hippy-lady psychiatrist is laid back, unlike any I’d met with before, so I am trying to keep my typical suspicious hostility in check.
“Well, I have a lot of hair and am thin, so maybe that won’t be too bad.”
“The hair loss can be patchy and the [...]


Interstate 35 is congested and I’m stuck behind a slow moving tractor trailer. Eyeing the passing lane, I realize that my economy hatchback can’t garner enough speed to safely move into the faster traffic.
I’ve made it halfway home and have about a hundred miles to go. I slow down behind the truck, keeping my eye [...]

This post is going to give me a panic attack

I keep wanting to write about my not-drinking and my going to AA, but everything I write I throw away. It just comes out too weird and contorted.
So, I am just going to write a big messy post about it.
I’ve been going to meetings, but haven’t been sharing or introducing myself. They ask for people [...]

I went to an AA meeting

They are really nice.
They laugh a lot.
I’ll write about it tomorrow.

I can’t believe that I’m a drunk

My mother quit drinking when I was in the fifth grade.
She gave me lots of warnings about alcohol, explaining that being a drunk runs in her large Irish Catholic family.
Because of that, I have been pretty cautious. I know to limit myself to two drinks and to be very wary of any habitual drinking patterns.
Unfortunately, [...]


“F**k you, Asshole!”
I stood in the parking lot humiliated, wearing little more than my red stilettos as the 6′6″ man flew toward me. His clenched fists flying first.
A protective move placed the diminutive frame of a quick thinking valet driver between me and the assault. My protector crashed into me as he took the punch, [...]

I’m really honest because I’m really lazy

I am posting all kinds of really personal information on this blog.
I guess this site is sort of anonymous, but my pictures are all over it.
My husband keeps saying, “Don’t write anything you wouldn’t want to see on the cover of the New York Times.”
(Not to suggest that the New York Times would ever care [...]

Telling you horrible things is amazingly cathartic

(This is part three in an unexpected series of totally inappropriate disclosures.)
I’m supposed to be writing about selling my house and shopping for an RV in anticipation of my drive to the Arctic Ocean. Instead, I have started spontaneously telling you all of these terrible things about myself.
Now, I promise to get back to RV [...]

The upside of having had a 9mm in your mouth

Some people think that having a complete mental breakdown is just terrible. And, yes, I agree, there is a lot that sucks about it. But there is an upside.
After that moment, you don’t worry about the same stupid shit anymore. You don’t care if you drive a piece of shit car or if you publicly [...]

I am completely terrified of people

A while back I read a post about RVing and introversion by Cherie on  Her post was very comforting to me and has become one of the 100 random thoughts circling repetitively through my head.
Her take is basically what I am hoping will be the case for me – the fact that she can [...]

Giving up hobbies, like drinking bottles of wine

I haven’t had any wine (or related beverages) in over two weeks.
