Two is the loneliest number

I’ve been cleaning a lot lately. Well, I cleaned the tub twice in two weeks, which is a lot for me. I’ve been doing laundry, including folding that shit and putting it away. I even vacuumed yesterday. I can count on one hand the number of times I vacuumed in my old apartment (my former…… Continue reading Two is the loneliest number

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

With birthdays, I’ve ended the…… Continue reading Beware the Ides

My Girlfriend Not Girlfriend: Worse things have happened in a bar. You’ve hooked up in a bar. (A long, long time ago. Sorry Mom.) But I’m…… Continue reading Trick or Treat

Wolf in sheep’s clothing

I managed to wrangle another guest writer and I didn’t even have to do the legwork. When a coworker went on her first-ever Tinder date this afternoon, my friend/coworker Anthony gave her strict instructions to take notes ‘for the blog.’ Not only do I not have to write, I don’t even have to recruit anymore.…… Continue reading Wolf in sheep’s clothing

You gotta have faith

I had every intention of going to the grocery store and cooking for the entire week. I’m surrounded by no less than 10 cookbooks; I even went so far as to map out what I’ll making for which meals. Then I realized I have to come up with something to blog about, despite the fact that…… Continue reading You gotta have faith
