Ultimate Gift Guide for the Last Minute Shoppers, the Clueless and What My Ex Husband Should Have Gotten Me Instead of the Iron

It's been a while since I did a gift guide, each year the holidays seem to creep up on me faster and faster and each year I am never prepared for them. Last year I had gotten fired from a position I held for 7 or 8 years without any warning or any cause (you can read about it here). Even though it was one

Please Don’t Ask Me What I Want for Mother’s Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner and if you're like most people who are not moms, you haven't gotten anything yet for your mother. If you're like most children of moms, you probably have no idea what to get your mother for this totally made up holiday and have resorted to asking your mother what she wants. {Disclosure - there may be some affiliate

Size Matters But A Huge Teddy Bear Will Not Get You Laid

Happy Valentine's Day It's that time of year again. Valentine's Day is just around the corner and the people at the Vermont Teddy Bear Co have come up with another brilliant ad campaign. It's called Size Matters and the idea is if you buy your sweetheart a huge teddy bear you will get some. Of course to cover all bases the hapless men are encouraged to

Bad Dog

File this under I Should Have Known Better. I put away all the remotes, coasters, books and anything else that was lying around at puppy eye level. I've learned my lesson, I thought, as I picked up my daughter's favorite teddy bear and locked it in her room for safe keeping. Then I left the house to go to the Y for a quick work

Father’s Day Flowers

Father's Day is just around the corner and I bet he doesn't want another tie or t-shirt that says #1 Dad. Okay, he might want another shirt and would probably even wear it with considerable pride but have you ever considered getting your dad some flowers? I can speak from experience, there are some dads out there would really appreciate a nice orchid rather than

Armpit Hair: For or Against or I have nothing else to write about at the moment

Mother's Day is over, I hope everyone had a great one, and it was time to take down the post. However, I don't really have much to put up in its place. I could tell you that I am getting close to having a real book written but since I don't have a date I don't want to say too much. I will say this,

Top Five Last Minute Christmas Gifts

When I was a kid* I would ask my parents what they wanted for Christmas and without fail they always told me they wanted the hardest thing to get them. My father would always say "I just want you to be good" and my mother would say "anything". Both answers sucked. At the time the easiest one of those gifts to give would

The Worst Christmas Gift, Ever

It was our first Christmas as a married couple. Ex#1 and I had only been married for a couple of months when we celebrated our first holiday as husband and wife. To be truthful our marriage was already strained. My father had been diagnosed with lymphoma on our wedding day and I had been escorting him to chemotherapy several times a week and taking care

Bitch, Bitch, Bitch

I'm back! Don't even ask about the book. I don't really have a whole post about one thing, I just have a bunch of bitches that I need to get out of my system. None are long enough in and of themselves to make a post with so I'm gonna lump them all together here while I get my mojo working again. Last week, or

Top Five Best Father’s Day Gifts…Ever.

Image via Wikipedia Last month I wrote a post about the worst Mother's Day gifts ever. I thought it only fair that I do the same thing with Father's Day but after talking to a few dads I realized I couldn't come up with five bad Father's Day gifts. It would seem that dads are happy with just about any gift you give them. They
