How I met The Bloggess and her real best friend IRL at BlogHer


When I met Jenny The Bloggess at BlogHer in San Diego a few weeks ago, I was a little giddy. I usually don’t go GaGa over celebrities and famous people, just so you know, but I admire Jenny’s writing and creativity, along with her bravery, and uncanny ability to effectively use dead animals and monkey […]

Psychic Fitness Games: are you a Free Soul Feeler?


I was wandering around Dudley’s used bookstore in Bend, Oregon the other day when this  “Are you Psychic?” book caught my third eye. It’s by Pete A. Sanders, Jr. and it’s all about the Free Soul Method of expanding your psychic abilities. He is an MIT trained scientist, according to the cover, so he knows […]

Escape to Quiet Village: My new exotic look!


I found this lovely retro album at a garage sale in Oakland, in the free pile! Of course I grabbed it. We don’t have a record player, but it’s the picture I like.  Now I just need to get an orange dress, big gold hoop earrings, and some sort of major push-up strapless bra. Then […]

My Big Hair: don’t try this at home!


I was getting ready for a meeting in San Francisco the other day, when Kristin decided she’d help me with my hair. “We need to add some volume,” she said, matter-of-factly. I trust this girlfriend with my hair because she was a professional hairstylist for many years. Plus her hair always looks good. In fact, […]

My Golden Aura in Oakland, CA


I was hanging out on Kristin’s bench by Pete’s Coffee, and one of her friends read my aura. He said it was golden. That seems good? Golden Aura Color: The color of enlightenment and divine protection. When seen within the aura, it says that the person is being guided by their highest good. It is […]

Commuting to work in the Bay Area: I do believe in Ferries. I do, I do, I do!


I’m in Oakland and San Francisco this weekend hanging out with my friend Kristin and looking for new gigs, which means lots of meetings in lots of places. Driving in this traffic can wear a person out, so I decided to take the Ferry today, instead. It was an excellent choice. My purple Talia boots […]

Duct Tape Car Repair: How to fix a sunroof with Gorilla Tape


I drove to California yesterday, which takes me about 8 hours. I love a good road trip, I enjoy driving alone with my thoughts and Ryan Seacrest’s radio show blaring pop tunes when I’m in range, but John Tesh wears me out a little. All my road trips start with a new roll of tape, […]

My Horny Toad BlogHer Travel Adventure


Okay, I’m sort of a last minute packer. I travel a lot and I just sort of throw things in willy-nilly and hope for the best. This usually works, but I’ve lost some weight recently and I wasn’t sure what to wear to BlogHer. I wanted to be comfortable for walking around and dancing, but still […]

Paleo Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Do you ever get sick of vegetables?


True Paleo Diet confession time: sometimes I just get tired of vegetables, and I want to eat a big bowl of Lucky Charms. Like today for instance. I was tired, hadn’t been running in a week, and man, a bowl of sugary cereal with ice cold milk sounded pretty good. But then I remembered it […]
