“And lo, shall the Italians and the Mexicans lie down together…” The context of the comment involves a plate full of taco makings covered with leftover cheesy pasta sauce in lieu of cheddar.
My family is amused by my crush on Johnny Depp. In fact, they flat-out indulge me. For Christmas, my husband gave me an autographed 8×10 and my daughter bought me a Pirates of the Carribbean II poster featuring my favorite expatriate. Johnny embodies the typical “unattainable bad boy” persona that so many fantasy men do. […]
This weekend is the date of one of the most highly publicized non-profit events in our area. Saturday morning people from all over northwest Arkansas will be congregating in Fayetteville to walk, run, shuffle, and sprint to raise money for breast cancer research in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. But this Saturday […]
Okay, he actually said this one a while ago, but it was one of the comments that made me think he deserved some space on my blog: “I’m the master of little, small sounds!” Brilliant, right?
I’m going to start logging the ridiculous/humorous/farcical/inane/bustful comments that my beloved hubby seems to come up with on a regular basis.

He referred several times to the concept that one’s suffering and life full of challenges is merely imaginary. This […]
No, this isn’t something I think about often. In fact, I have never actually considered the idea of being on a boat with a great-looking naked guy. But perhaps I should. And so should you – I give you permission. Okay, now that we’ve gone there together… The naked guys who have burned their image […]
Based on the title of this posting you may wonder if David Sedaris has inhabited my body and is about to unleash one of his fabulously funny/creepy essays about bodily functions or dead bodies in the trash of Manhattan. If you haven’t read them, you should. But, alas, no. It’s just the Girlchild, and I’m […]
For many years I’ve wished I could do the things I’ve always dreamed of doing. Those things are fairly broad-ranging, with the number one position held by the dream of acting and singing on Broadway. I think I had the talent and ability in my early twenties (no, really…. I DID!!!) but I was terrified […]
