Even when I’m not blogging, I am almost certainly wearing clothes. Last photo of the fauxhawk before it stopped looking like a fauxhawk… plus an awkward petticoat reveal. Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose… plus a scorpion brooch for good measure. How short is too short? Sometimes, you don’t know until you’re […]
(Image source) While practicing kicks in my self-defense class, I heard the familiar riiiiiip of fabric giving out. I say “familiar” because hey, my thighs have been rubbing since the instant I reached puberty. Inspect any of my jeans/trousers/sweats, and see for yourself. The inner-thigh-covering material of my legwear always pills or wears thin, waiting […]
(image via humble brick home) Last Friday, I decided to walk to the store. Balmy weather, high spirits, I got plenty o’ nothin’ and nothin’s plenty for me.

Monday, I went to the dentist. Having not been since, oh, November of 2005, I figured this check-up would lead to more appointments, eight or ten fillings, several extractions, lots of shaming and guilt, and probably drain all my savings. But no. There’s one spot I need to floss more carefully (it wants to be […]
What appears to be a small bowl of frosting sitting on a rock… …is in reality a small bowl of deodorant sitting on a rock. In my front yard. Impressing the neighbors. When I started wearing homemade deodorant in March, I kept my stick of conventional deo for “Important” days. Once that stick ran out, […]
February is gone, and with it ends my month of Body Hair Laissez-Faire. On one hand, the project was a big disappointment; not one reader joined me in razor-hiding, and I’m still waiting for the results of both e-interviews.
