We are All Intrepid Women

I was voxing with a friend the other day. My friend and I jib jabbed about our days’, and then she started telling me about a class that was impressing her on a deep level. In the class they were learning about a woman, Mary Parker Follett, who transformed working conditions for the working class. […]

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 970 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people. Click here to see […]

Eat a fajita. Pretty please.

Just click and print! Thank you everyone. I truly couldn’t do this without your support.

Hodge Podge

First: Folks I am so close to my goal for Ave of the Giants Half Marathon! 83%!  Thank you to everyone, I still cannot believe I got here so fast.  To get me to that brass ring, my last $370, I am creating a wee competition. Wee because as you will soon see… the prize […]

a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step… and keeps going forever. Or something like that.

Today I ran the farthest I have ever my entire life. Well, in my entire life in one go.  Ready? 5.4 miles. In the rain no less.  I know, I know not super astounding.  But astounding to me at least… and apparently astounding to my knee. So I am officially on my way to […]

writing and other nonense

Welllllll. Im at 26,509 words. As of In my novel I mean. Sounds a little pretentious to call what I am trying to write a “novel”. But if we can agree to let it slide for the sake of the month of November (novel writing month) I would appreciate it.  The Nanowrimo site calculates […]

It’s the little things.

I took off today. In an airplane. With no side-seat assist, not a finger.  And it was actually pretty. Not the drunken maneuver down the runway and up into the air it usually is. We blew two fuses today during my flight lesson.  We noticed this, because we are genuises, when our radios when out. […]

A Writer

So. I signed up. To write. A novel. In a month. This next month to be exact. It’s called Nanowrimo. Writing starts midnight November 1st, and pencils down…or computers shut midnight on November 30th. 50,000 words. Now, if anyone has the time to do this it would be me- owner/operator of project deadbeat.  Yet […]

stairway to hell

Yesterday was a big day. I am an avid exerciser. Well…honestly I just want to be fit, look good in a dress and be able to drink beer and eat cheese. But I say whatever gets us to the gym. My nemesis: the stair climber machine. The one where the stairs sorta roll out of […]

An unexpectedly scary adventure

So. I must begin by catching everyone up to date. I have a long list of “to-do’s/want to do’s/have to do’s” for this year ahead of me. With no particular regard to any order I jumped in and purely due to scheduling the first on the list was- SCUBA! I was going to get my […]

operation deadbeat has begun

July 2nd I quit my job after 11 years. I am voluntarily unemployed. A year of foolishness (according to some) and bravery (according to others) and adventure (according to me) lies ahead. At the end of it I hope to find something I had lost a long long time ago. Me.

The big question
