Day 103 — Scratch That. And That….

I sure hope that when I grow old, I’ll be able to afford a gardener kneeler like my neighbor, Barbara, because it sure beats squatting. Barbara has got that knee thing down pat when she weeds. If I were Barbara, I’d find a better use for it indoors while my significant other stands, holding onto his cane, […]

Day 102 — Rose and Jose

No, no, I wasn’t tangoing with a Mexican, or should I be politically correct and say Latino. Believe me, I’d give in to one if he looked as hot as Mexican actor Demián Bichir on Weeds, the HBO show. But I did mean rosé, the wine, writing my cover letter. The vino gave me that […]

Day 101 — Ann’s ‘Larger Voyage’

The next time I get a job and get into trouble at work, I’m going to invoke the Bible and quote King David to cleanse me of my sins. If Mark Sanford, South Carolina’s naughty boy governor, can mention scripture to keep his job, then why can’t I? None of this “at will” job stuff. […]

Day 100 — Daughter Dearist

ANN’S NOTE: Ann takes a day off on Saturday. She returns tomorrow with either Post Office Crabs, or Rose or José, which has nothing to do, unfortunately, with José, but rose, now, that is a fine drink that deserves a resurgence on a hot humid night. I work the door tonight at the Hyatt in […]

Day 99-1/2 — Bad Boy, Mark

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] For your listening pleasure, Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina I don’t know why those Republicans can’t keep their dick in their pants. Weren’t they supposed to learn how to use zippers in preschool? I agree, the Democrats need zipper lessons, too. In any case, if you’re a politican […]

Day 99 — Bad Girl, Ann

ANN’S NOTE: I wrote this entry in March but was too embarrassed to post it. I took this trip soon after my boyfriend broke up with me. What do you do when you’re in your 50s, got less than $20,000 in retirement, $500 in the bank and credit cards near their max? Why, you buy […]

Day 98 — Your Defining Ass-et

As the ranks of the unemployed grow and America’s dress habits deteriorate, I ask, How can you tell the employed from the unemployed? Answer: By their asses. I believe that a person’s ass defines their profession. You’ve seen the chicks in office lobbies, the type that say, “Excuse me. May I help you? You need […]

Day 97 — You Otter Take This Advice

A billboard on the way into Waco, Tex., said to stop at Cameron Park and meet Bob and Doris. I don’t know why I’d want to meet Bob and Doris. They are otters. I don’t know what I’d say since I’m not sure whether to grunt or watch out for my finger getting bit. I […]

Day 96 — Blow Your Job

Girl on the Brink has attracted the attention of PR agencies. She’s been receiving a bunch of press releases lately about how you can earn money and put your finances in order. I find most of them too good to be true. I don’t write about them for that very reason, and I don’t think […]

Day 95 — You Could be Next

Rocker Adam Lambert is getting a lot of press for losing the top job on American Idol. He’s featured on the current cover of US Weekly above a headline that blares, “I’m Gay.” Thank you US for pointing that out, but I think we all knew that given Adam paints his nails black, and that’s […]
