What is the Point of it All? (Vlog)

FireShot Screen Capture #017 - 'What is the point_ - YouTube' - www_youtube_com_watch_v=R9MQF_TxbZM

I’m trying to get creative today and video-blogged in an unusual place. You know the score: if you like ‘em, hit play, if you hate ‘em, come back next time. I’m hoping that some folks will leave their thoughts on the subject matter in the comments. As always, I’d love your feedback, opinions, and advice.


The Artist’s Tortured Soul.

On Sunday afternoon, I sat at my desk finishing a homework assignment while HH ran a few errands. I hadn’t seen any news events of the day, nor had I even visited facebook yet. When HH came home, he walked over to my desk and said, “Such a bummer about what happened to Philip Seymour Hoffman, huh?” My heart immediately...


When Life Gives You Lemons, Part Two…

The first three weeks of this year were pretty much bullshit. Between that damn flu and the broken/dislocated toe, I really worried that this year had nothing but bad news in store. But Friday marked a little change in the weather (not the actual weather, oh hell no, that’s still pulling that Polar Vortex shit up in these parts, but...

Do you ever find yourself in such a foul mood that you don’t even want to be around yourself? That’s how I’ve felt this week. I’ve been angry: angry at circumstances and angry at my reaction to the circumstances. Let me take you back a bit: My husband’s birthday and our anniversary are two days apart, and both dates fall...


No Good Day Goes Unpunished.

This morning I woke up so excited to write all about what a wonderful time I had at The Good Mother Myth Chicagoland Book Release event that I hosted this past weekend. It turned out to be one of the most fun and fabulous days I’ve had in a really long time. Everything looked perfect, I happened to be having...


Uncomfortable Skin.

On more than a few occasions, I’ve been “recognized” from this blog. So has my family. One time, I was at my chiropractor’s office when someone said, “Are you The Feminist Breeder?” Another, I was at a gyne appointment when a staff person recognized me (No, not from my vagina, thank god.) Last year, my dad was out with my...


How The Internet Diagnosed My Personality “Problems”

Sometimes the internet is a son-of-a-bitch. And sometimes the internet is great place to find the recognition response that all human beings crave. Nothing feels better than stumbling upon something that makes you go, “Hey, wait! That’s ME! That’s how I feel! I thought I was the only one!” It’s incredibly validating to read that someone else is experiencing something...
