Sing, Sing a Song…about Christmas

I was entirely prepared-I even had the first paragraph written out-to write a very, very Grinchy blog all about the commercial aspects of the Season. However, while ruminating on that topic, I was distracted by my quest for new, good Christmas music (tricksy iTunes…). I think the first thing I need to do it draw a … Continue reading

Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels…Or So I’ve Heard…

  I’ve hear it said that nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. I like to think this is true, but I can’t say for sure for two reasons. The first being that I’ve never been skinny; the second being that I’ve tasted some pretty darn good food in my life.   I’ve been sitting … Continue reading

Give Us This Day- Thoughts on the Battle of Needs vs Wants

            I don’t really think I’ve ever had such a pressing requirement to separate the things I need from the things I want. My bank account is sitting WELL below my freak out level, and we’re currently both jobless. And while we have a place to live and all the basics covered, … Continue reading


I often times find myself wishing that I could handle things better. I have long lists of things that I’m sure I’ve handled rather poorly indeed. I’ll not list them here-or anywhere for that matter- because they make me look bad, and no one wants to look bad if they can help it. At times … Continue reading

You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might also pray in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.

Ramifications of Clothing

I’m inordinately excited for tonight. Why, do you ask? And what does that have to do with the title of your blog? Well, I’ll answer both of those questions, keep you pants on! Sheesh! First off, I’m excited because there is a pretty awesome band playing in Red River tonight, and there’s a guy I’m … Continue reading


So, I’ve decided that I’m going to go through my dresser and closet here in New Mexico and get rid of EVERYTHING that is too big. I have various reason for this. One reason is entirely practical. In a few months time, I’m going to have to move all my belongings…somewhere. Not entirely sure where … Continue reading

“I don’t even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger and that’s feels so rough…”

Above quote is from a song called “Somebody That I Used to Know” by my newest obsession, the band Gotye. *sigh* I love them. It’s just a song lyric that I love, and I am neither currently in love or ‘actively’ heart broken. Let’s see, since my last post I’ve had a rather very awkward rearrangement of … Continue reading

A Girl Who Wants More/Torbellino

The following link is to the youtube video for “Love the Way You Lie” by Eminem. Please take this as my disclaimer that A) this song is gritty, and the video a bit violent and B ) despite the fact that this song loosely inspired the poem that follows, I am in NO WAY in … Continue reading

Empire State of Mind…and some other stuff.

Well, hello people! I know it’s been eons since last I posted. Sorry about that. Well, let’s start at the beginning shall we? I’m fresh off a 2 week vacation that involved a rather lot of traveling, at least in the very begining. Drove the 4 hours from Questa to Denver only to miss my … Continue reading
