“Movember,” as many of you know, stands for “Mustache November” - but why it’s spelled this way I’ll never understand. Mustache starts with an “Mu-,” so shouldn’t it be “Muvember”? See, for a long time, I heard “Movember” and thought it would be spelled “Mo’ Vember,” like some sweet, ghetto way of...
Today, I was told that I’m a “dynamic character.” I must have stared at the commentator for a bit too long, so of course, he felt compelled to explain to me what that term means and how it applies to me. Essentially, others perceive me as someone who is constantly evolving and adapting to the situations at hand, the people who surround me, etc. Though he presented this quality...
Luck be a Lady
I have a curse. Others might not view it as such, but for me, it’s a damn terrible curse. See, after a guy and I break up, the next girl to come into his life ends up being “the one” (whatever the hell that means) - literally, 100% of the time. Every single one of my ex-boyfriends is on the marriage track with the first girl they got into a relationship with after breaking up...

And Now For Something Completely Different
I’m not typically one for posting random pictures without some sort of commentary attached, but this is possibly the most gorgeous map of the city I’ve ever seen. Beautiful and incredibly helpful for visitors and newcomers alike. Therefore, I had to share. (Graphic courtesy of Alexander Cheek, accessed from Big Think)
"I must, I must, I must increase my bust!"
Though I never read any Judy Blume books in my youth, it is nearly impossible to be a young woman in the U.S. and not be familiar with this iconic quote from Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. As a very small-busted woman, there have been times throughout my life where I wanted nothing more than to have the body of a lingerie model. With their larger-than-life bosoms in every mall...
Conversations I Will Never Have
INT. BEDROOM - NIGHT GIRL and BOY lay in bed after one night stand BOY: So, do you have a good do-rag I can use to sleep in? GIRL: No, but you can wear my bonnet instead.
Barbie Gone Wild
When I was a child, I had upwards of 100 Barbies. It was a problem awesome, though probably not so awesome for my poor parents given that: A) Barbies are not cheap. Nor are their miniature outfits, accessories, homes, cars, boyfriends, pets, etc. B) Each and every Barbie comes with its own miniature hairbrush. And high heels. Thus, the floor in my house was littered with these tiny, sharp...
The Ties That Bind: Waffle House
To the sophisticates that read this blog, you might as well stop now. I’m willing to bet that you’ve never been to Waffle House and thus won’t be able to relate to what is written herein. However, if you think you might appreciate it or be inspired to try a little slice of heaven that I like to call “scattered all the way,” then read on. Waffle House is one of...
