Pillars of Delight: The Key to Great Content (but mostly rambling)

On Friday, I got certified in *Inbound Marketing. There was a portion on the test called “Pillars of Delight,” which sounds like a Hieronymus Bosch painting or some kind of designer drug, but it’s about creating content that people really want to read. The pillars are education, innovation, communication, and deep tissue massages. So, that’s what…… Continue reading Pillars of Delight: The Key to Great Content (but mostly rambling)

Trump Presidency: The Story of Casual Cannibalism

I know this is a horrible way to start a post but…oh my god, oh my god, oh my god. The zombie apocalypse has arrived. The Trump presidency is young and already it has inspired some weird shit. I’m not talking about the misogyny (though slimy), alternative facts (though disturbing), or the simple fact that…… Continue reading Trump Presidency: The Story of Casual Cannibalism

If I Wore a Mood Ring It Would Give Me The Finger

Let’s just get this out of the way. If a mood ring had fingers, would it wear a mood ring? From there it’s just inception. Like standing between two mirrors. Hey. I’m feeling moody. Maybe it’s a writer thing, but I’m all over the place. I just haven’t been able to write any good fiction…… Continue reading If I Wore a Mood Ring It Would Give Me The Finger

What’s That Smell? The Story of Sewage in The Basement

Nothing rings in the new year like faulty plumbing and sewage in the basement. First, the apartment starts to smell of dead animals, but we can’t identify where it’s coming from. Colin showers twice, just in case its him, which is honestly hilarious. Then we check the basement, and OH, look. Lake Shiticaca. This comes after…… Continue reading What’s That Smell?

New Years Resoloos: The Story of Goals N’at

As always, my New Year’s resolution is, “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” ….but don’t get arrested. Also, “Be fearless in pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.” …but don’t practice arson. I plan to check off the following as the year goes by: Get scuba certified at Uncle Joe’s Scuba.…… Continue reading New Years Resoloos: The Story of Goals N’at

Rule #1 – Don’t Panic: The Story of Me Breaking Rule #1

As mandated by my dad, there is one rule in my family and that is don’t panic. I think it’s a good rule, but ironic, as we are all guilty of panic and anxiety. For example, the Christmas tree fell on top of me the other night, and I screamed like I was auditioning for…… Continue reading Rule #1 – Don’t Panic: The Story of Me Breaking Rule #1

The Struggle of Being Smaller Than Most People… and Several Dog Breeds

I sound like a whiner, but being a shortie with no upper body strength sometimes sucks. I’m not about to file for disability or write a memoir called, “My Life Being Mistaken For Your Baby Sister,” but I feel like ranting. That’s my prerogative and one of the reasons I have a blog. I’ll keep it…… Continue reading The Struggle of Being Smaller Than Most People… and Several Dog Breeds

Christmas Angel (No, Not Tim Allen): The Story of Mrs. Claus

As of late, I’ve been in a bit of a blogging slump. Maybe because I’m in the process of moving and have a lot of other stuff on my mind, like the exploding washing machine, which by the way, I’m thinking of writing a two-person *musical about. Or maybe my slump started when the temperature…… Continue reading Christmas Angel (No, Not Tim Allen): The Story of Mrs. Claus

Birthday Fundraiser: The Story of Sponsoring Juicy

For my birthday, I went out to the bar with an empty tin can and asked for donations. Thankfully, I’m the perfect combination of annoying yet endearing, so most people trusted that I planned to use the money for an Animal Rescue League donation, as opposed to a new couch. (I only considered it for a…… Continue reading Birthday Fundraiser: The Story of Sponsoring Juicy
