Stop AAPI Hate

I’m trying to collect my thoughts about the murder of 8 AAPI in Atlanta last night. We don’t have all the details, but I do know this: I know it’s a hate crime. I know it’s a culmination of a year of heavy racism and targeting by the former occupant of the White House, butContinue reading “Stop AAPI Hate”

I Believe Meghan

I don’t need to watch the Harry + Meghan interview to understand some of the reactions I’ve seen online (although I plan on it). “I never liked Meghan.” Oh really? You have that strong of an opinion on (checks notes) her cable television show Suits? “Diana was sweet, Meghan is manipulative.” Hmm wonder where thatContinue reading “I Believe Meghan”

Tuesday

It’s been awhile. Between my new blogging gig and a snowpocalypse that left us living like pioneers for a week (thankfully our house is still inhabitable after the damage it sustained) I haven’t had a ton of time for this blog. Ok, I also wasn’t writing because I’m still not sure what this space isContinue reading “Tuesday”

Friday Musings: Cancel Culture

I’ve been thinking a lot about cancel culture recently and about the people who decry it. I’m thinking about cancel culture and who actually gets cancelled. The example that comes to mind of a group truly cancelled is the Chicks (formerly D*xie Chicks) who, after speaking out against President Bush and the war, were pulledContinue reading “Friday Musings: Cancel Culture”

Jan. 2021 Reads

I almost forgot to blog about this, which would be a shame, because I read a crap ton of books in Jan. I don’t know what it was, maybe the start of a new year, a blank slate, but I was starving for literature. I’m surprised Goodreads wasn’t like, “Girl, take a breath.” But withContinue reading “Jan. 2021 Reads”

How I Do My Nails

Remember in those early days of quarantine where everyone was like, “I’m going to bake bread! That’s what I’ll do to pass the time!” (FF to 2 weeks later when sourdough starters across the USA found themselves at the bottom of garbage cans.) Well I can’t eat gluten and gf bread is trash no matterContinue reading “How I Do My Nails”

Nothing Was Stolen

In my town, and many towns across the nation, people are protesting “the steal.” Because in 2021 it’s more believable that the opposing party orchestrated an elaborate plan to take the Presidency (and not the Senate – major eye roll ) than a majority of the country decided a narcissistic man-child uninterested in the jobContinue reading “Nothing Was Stolen”

My Top 5 Books of 2020

“Why do you read like you’re running out of time?” Or something like that. Somehow – in 2020 – with 3 kids, including a newborn AND a pandemic I read 53 books. That’s more than a book a week (look I can do maths!) I read voraciously at the start of the year because IContinue reading “My Top 5 Books of 2020”

Home For the (Pandemic) Holidays

Instead of bombarding your inboxes with 3 individual posts, here’s my holiday/birthday look rewind. Birthday Look Being a near-Christmas baby is rad. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It’s a week of partying and you get to pretend people are jolly and put out lights in your honor (just me?) To celebrate my 33 revolutionsContinue reading “Home For the (Pandemic) Holidays”
