It’s no secret that for the past few years I’ve been in a major battle with aging, and it’s been ugly. Not so much the battle (because I’m a gracious loser), but the sags, bags, and wrinkles that make me literally gasp each morning when I see myself in the mirror. Gravity is real, ya’ll, […]

For almost 38 years I’ve been subjected to a torture and a hell. Something that the overwhelming majority of society—and even members of my own family—finds baffling and threatens to ostracize me for. Something I’ve oftentimes had to conceal in the very interest of my own survival. I hate Star Wars. (Hides under desk) I always […]

When I think of my childhood, I think of books. OK fine. I also think of Weeble Wobbles, moon boots, latch-hook rugs, ESPRIT clothing and, of course, Scott Baio — but also, books. My formative years were spent with far more friends than could be physically seen or heard; they were spent with countless comrades whose lives and stories […]

I’ve had a valentine for over 25 years: so many years that we don’t even get each other cards anymore. Actually, that’s not true. He bought me two cards back in 2011 that he totally forgot about and that I found about five months later in the office drawer, unsigned. He told me to just […]

When was the last time you were surprised? I mean, really good and surprised? Not in a “oh-crap-I-wasn’t-supposed-to-get-my-period-until-next-week” kind of way, but in a “you’re-taking-me-on-a-long-weekend-away-tomorrow?” kind of way. (And by the way, that’s never actually happened to me, but isn’t that the very best kind of surprise you can imagine?) I love surprises. I always have. […]

I was a Halloween kid. As in, started planning my next year’s costume on November 1st kind of a Halloween kid. Over the course of the year I’d change my mind a million times as to what I’d be, but more often than not I’d end up being whatever it was that had been thought up […]

Good Friday to you! This week’s Favorite’s post has to be short and sweet. Stop crying — it’ll be okay, I promise. Why no rambling list today full of interesting things like Bit-O-Honeys and P!nk songs and boy-short undies (which I do so love)? Because of this: I WAS AT THE ONE DIRECTION CONCERT LAST […]

What started out to be another quiet and slow summer week turned into a Baio Blockbuster. {If, by chance, you were out of the country or bedridden with no access to electronics and missed out – read all about it right HERE.}I’m starting to come down from my Baio-high, but still shout “MAYBE IT’S BAIO!” every […]

Like most people, I count my High School and college graduations, my wedding day and the births of my children as my life’s major moments. Until today. With apologies to Saguaro High School, ASU, NAU, Husband and the Things, something happened earlier today that trumped them all. Scott Baio re-tweeted me. Wait….what?? SCOTT BAIO RE-TWEETED […]
