Family values

I know, I know, I’m shit and I haven’t been writing, and I’m sorry. I actually started a post last week about how cutely gross/funny my relationship is, but I’m not feeling it at the moment, so you’re spared the schmoop. For now. Instead, I give you Anxiety Girl™. You’ve met her before (well some…… Continue reading Family values

Father knows best

There are times when I feel so unlike my parents it’s hard to fathom how someone like me came from those houses, let alone how we’re related. When I’m the last one at the table, plate half full because I rapid-fire talked my way through dinner while everyone else sat silently, dutifully eating their meals and occasionally…… Continue reading Father knows best

Hometown glory

I’ve spent the better part of this past week in the bustling metropolis of Chatham — my hometown. No, I’m not a secret agent on some impossibly glamourous undercover assignment (I would be a terrible secret agent); we had a death in the family that I’m really not in the mood to write about just…… Continue reading Hometown glory

Stuck in the middle with you

It’s no secret that I am not a huge fan of my full name (if this is news to you, please see yourself out, as the name of the blog is a big goddamn clue). I’ve written before about why I don’t feel Stephanie fits me, but today we’re going to focus on a whole new level of…… Continue reading Stuck in the middle with you

Party party fun fun

Fun might be the most subjective word in the OED. Lately, I’ve ended up in a bunch of surprise-fun situations. We all know what we consider fun (wallpapering can be fun for some, right Mr. and Mrs. Snack Bag?), and typically what we don’t. Or do we? I was home for a very countrified Christmas,…… Continue reading Party party fun fun

A Steph by any other name

I am home for the holidays, which is always interesting. I’ve written before about my somewhat rocky relationship with Christmas, and all the baggage that comes attached to the holiday season. One of the main reasons for all that baggage is the idea of ‘home.’ My parents’ homes are no longer mine, but they are…… Continue reading A Steph by any other name
