Going Gray #2: She Let Me Touch Her Hair

0

I took the kids to the 5th Street Market in Eugene today to ride the glass elevator and sit by the splashing fountain in the shady courtyard. While they were eating ice cream, I met this nice lady named Jackie in the bathroom. I loved her hair, and told her I was considering going gray. […]

When Feathers Float Away

1

Sometimes things are heavy and they hurt when they slam into me. If I were a football player I’d be prepared and wear pads and a helmet, but I’m just a mom with a rational fear of head injuries. I’d rather my troubles were light and feathery and would just float away on a cool breeze […]

Esther Williams, Do You Like My Hat?

1

Oh yes, I really did buy this lovely flowered latex swim cap after my children suggested it when they saw the little old ladies doing water aerobics at the pool. But they didn’t think I’d actually go through with it. Or put it on during family rec swim at Amazon pool. On a crowded Saturday. […]

The Little Red Hen Eats Tomatoes

0

Now that we’re back in the fertile Willamette Valley, we can grow our own tomatoes. This is a big deal for our family, since we all love tomatoes, and as much as I want to support local organic farmers, I also want to buy bread, milk, and good running shoes, too. A few $3 seedlings […]

Naked Breasts: Does Size Really Matter?

1

Since we’ve been discussing middle-aged angst issues like naked bodies and gray hair this week, I think it’s high time we talk about boobs here at Chubby Mommy Running Club. I wrote about bras and appreciating my breasts in the light of a friend’s battle with breast cancer a while ago, but …

Naked Hair: Is Gray the New Sexy?

3

Angelina did this for MOVIE, not in real life. For the record. For some strange reason the internets are interested in my hair. I can fly my mannequin to Vegas and take her to the U2 concert and spend hours making a video and writing about it for 250 clicks over time, or I can […]

Why I Love Naked Ladies at the Fair

0

We went to the Oregon Country Fair, one of the largest outdoor craft fairs in the country, where art and music and love flow freely in the woods in Veneta, Oregon, just a stone’s throw from Eugene, where many say the counter culture incubated in Ken Kesey’s psychedelic bus before it flew over the cuckoo’s nest. […]

Jamal: “Eat Tofu and Stay Blessed with God”

0

I met Jamal on Hollywood and Vine a few weeks ago when I was in L.A. with Suzy. He was selling CD’s, and I asked him what he does for exercise. I think he told me what he thought I wanted to hear, which was fun, and a bit touching, too. I like Jamal. I […]

My Funny Date with Suzy Soro in Hollywood

4

I met @HotComesToDie, who’s real name is Suzy Soro, when I was in L.A. trying to get my big break with Oprah. I met Suzy on Twitter first, and she said “call me when you’re in town,” like people do sometimes, just to be nice. But I actually did. And then, she had to meet […]

When BFF’s Go Bad: Working Out with Hot-Body Friends

3

Marcia swears I laughed at her when she tripped in the hallway at Jefferson Jr. High and broke her arm back in 1978. I was laughing with her, in that hey-did-you-see-that-guy-slip-on-the-banana-peel? way, it’s just she didn’t know it because she was trying not to cry. And there was no banana. So now that we’re grown-ups […]
