Date gone wrong

In the ongoing saga that should be titled “And Then My Brain Said ‘Au Revoir’”, I made a Vegetarian lasagna (surprisingly tasty!), a fruit salad, and some brownies for a family I do not know. I then mapquested their address, picked up my mother to stand watch over the chlidren while I drove to their... Sign in to see full entry.

The key to craziness

My keys have once again gone into hiding. Unfortunately, today happens to be trash pick-up day. This leaves a very high probability that my keys are being processed by the Pima County Department of Crushing and Ickiness, or whatever the trash department is called. While I have never actually caught... Sign in to see full entry.

Vegetarian disaster - delivered!

In some universe people pop popcorn and sit down on Thursday nights to watch me make a fool of myself. Here on earth, I just get to relay stories of my idiocy. The week has only just begun and already I’m behind- I have agreed to cook a meal for a family of four (vegetarian, no less) that I do not... Sign in to see full entry.

I was once reasonably organized...

Once again "Blogging" has taken a back seat to "Living". Which means that if it is my back seat and Blogging and Living are my children, no one is buckled yet, I'm in Reverse and there is a scooter under the van. Dammit, get buckled, Living! Time has marched on (I am beginning to think it marched... Sign in to see full entry.

Nike Women's Marathon - check!

The short of it: I learned a lot, and I gained a whole new respect for Ibuprofen. The long of it: A gorgeous day with perfect weather and an organized, on-time start. Some problems with bag dropping, but those were minimal (and included a homeless man with a penchant for the F-bomb, but let’s try to... Sign in to see full entry.

29 and counting

I’m leaving my husband tomorrow. I leave Saturday morning and he’s made me promise I will return when my plane does on Sunday evening. I’m running the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco on Sunday, my 29 th birthday. It is a good way to forget my birthday, running among thousands. Who could help... Sign in to see full entry.

Slowly losing touch with reality ...

A conspiracy is alive and well in the ant farm surrounding my home known as "suburban desert". We have ants. I’ve technically had ants since 1979. I was two. They used to form brigades in my room, and only my room. Around my ceiling they would march, mocking me. So organized, so calculating. As I... Sign in to see full entry.

Back from the blogitphere

My name is Holly and it has been... 2 years since my last blog. Let the public flogging begin. I'm going to start in on my dozen Hail Blogits just as soon as I get something posted. Where the hell did I go? In fact, where the hell did two years go? Sure, I finished graduate school and had another... Sign in to see full entry.

Public pools and a good argument for more chlorine

As the cloud of what-the-hell-is-she-coughing-up attacks my family, we made our way to the snaking line of youngsters this morning to register for swimming lessons. Our local Parks and Recreation department has made the process as difficult to navigate as possible with a ridiculous system of... Sign in to see full entry.

Tennis, anyone?

In the spirit of 110 degree days, sweating until you can’t speak, and completely irrational expectations, we signed our two oldest children up for tennis lessons. Each Sunday morning at the ass crack of dawn we head to the local tennis courts where two tennis coaches attempt to mold our little... Sign in to see full entry.
