I am just glad no one is here to see me eat cake out of the garbage!

I am just glad no one is here to see me eat cake out of the garbage!

Yesterday was my birthday which means that last night was my “birthday party” which was really just a bunch of crazy bitches wandering from bar to bar cursing excessively and talking about their boobs. About the time that you switch from Tequila to Whiskey is probably the time you should call it a night. Unless of course, it’s your birthday! In which case you have an entire evening of dubious…

Your Sardonic Salon Primer, Finally!

Your Sardonic Salon Primer, Finally!

Here at the shop we have, what I like to call, a quasi literary event each quarter called Sardonic Salon. Sardonic Salon was born one Sunday afternoon when I was hanging out at the shop with a couple friends, Colin and Megan. Colin had found a book in the “Erotica” section titled “Samurai” which featured, on its cover, a pair of big red lips and a samurai sword. We chortled over the cheesiness…

You Guys Wrote This Post For Me

You Guys Wrote This Post For Me

So yesterday I wrote a post about suicide and depressionand today, when I woke up, at 5 am I noticed that I had an unusual amount of messages in my inbox.

So I decided I would talk about suicide too since it’s been on my mind and in the forefront of the media with the unexpected death of Robin Williams. Since then the internet has been a sorrowful but beautiful place to be.

The first time I remember wanting to kill myself, like really wanting to die because I…

THE “BIG” EXPOSITORY POST” that’s not all that big

THE “BIG” EXPOSITORY POST” that’s not all that big

So I have been holding back on the “BIG EXPOSITORY POST” because it was just too soon. Not for me, really, but for everyone else I think. So here’s the rub. I recently ended things with my hubby of 11 years. No, we were not really “married” but that didn’t make us any less married. We had shared our lives for over a decade in addition to sharing our wonderful son.

Things did not end well and I…

Husker Dü!

There are some things that I am no longer ashamed to admit in public. I was a drama nerd in junior high and most of high school. If it hadn’t been for my friends on the “stoner fringe” (and the Old Firehouse but that’s a whole other story) I would have been a complete geek, which I maintain I was and probably still am at heart. I had the entire opening soliloquy of “Mary Queen of Scots”…
