Why Men Cheat?

Why Men Cheat was the title of the article I read in this month's Esquire magazine. The article that inspired this blog. I stumbled across it accidently. I had turned to one of the back pages to finish reading another article and there it was. Why am I, a female, reading Equire? Because I can and... Sign in to see full entry.

Only Two Emails and No Phone Calls All Day

Want a job blogging for 110K per year?

Want a job blogging for 110K per year? That's what I have at the moment - not a bag gig really until I get caught. No one can fault me for doing something creative with my time. After-all, I have tried to volunteer my services to other parts of the organization but my bosses in Europe have told me... Sign in to see full entry.

Tribute to Johnny

Johnny was a kind hearted man with a serious drinking problem. It killed him, it fried his pancreas and he died a painful, miserable death. Johnny was married to my mother so when he died I rushed to her side to help her. Their relationship walked that fine like of love and hate. She loved his... Sign in to see full entry.

Yesterday as I rode the elevator to the second floor of Neiman Marcus. A woman, just one stair below me tapped my arm and asked "do you mind if I ask what fragrance you are wearing?". This is not the first time I have been asked about my fragrance and each time I have kindly declined to reveal the... Sign in to see full entry.

I should be sleeping

I should be sleeping right now but I am here instead. For the second night in a row, the skies have opened up and dumped a thunderous rain on our heads. If I sleep I cannot hear it although the sound of rain is soporific and I believe that if it continues to rain throughout the night, one will sleep... Sign in to see full entry.

Summer Camp?

Those who have read my blogs know that I have been taking care of my niece for four years. She is now 12 and at the age where she is too young to leave at home but too old for the YMCA summer programs. As she told me today, she is bored to boredom (whatever that means). I went on line to find sports... Sign in to see full entry.

I found BlogIt listed on one of the freelance writing sites as a recommended site to make money writing. I cannot deny that money can be made here but is BlogIt really a site that freelancers want to spend time posting on. I have been blogging here for nearly two years and my writing lies basically...

28 Days Ago

It has been 28 days since someone read any of my writings. I am not a frequent writer as all of the tribulations of life occupy my time. In fact, I barely have a creative thought remaining in my head. I have no energy, no inspiration, no space, no privacy, no identity. Even now, I have thoughts... Sign in to see full entry.
