Like For Like

Believe it or not, I was quite restrained here. I may need to talk to someone about my anger.

That’s apparently how it’s supposed to work. I will like/follow your thing if you like/follow mine. Can’t we just like or not like things based solely on whether or not we like them? I guess not. This is a post on my Facebook page wall. You don’t need to read it, because I’m not proud [...]

Top 5 Huffington Post Slideshows I Clicked Through in 2013 While Waiting for My Kids.

Top 5 reedster aiming low huffpo

It’s the end of the year and that means I’m going all “best of” list on your asses. The typical top 10 topics are out. I saw exactly zero movies last year. My Spotify playlists are frozen in the 1990s. I could make lists of things like “Top 10 Reasons I Yelled at My Kids [...]

Beat It Like It Owes You Money

That's 1/4" wallboard at the max. I'm surprised that nothing got on me.

Mouth breathers are going to be the death of me. Last night I set my alarm for six o’clock in the morning. Normally it would be five, but because of a series of screw ups yesterday, the crew that was supposed to have our bridges in didn’t complete their end of the bargain. This means [...]

Our Beautiful Differences

BeautifulDifferences1

A few weeks ago I went with my husband and my two young daughters to watch Disney’s latest animated feature film Frozen. I had no idea what the movie was supposed to be about. All I remembered from the trailer I saw was that there was a lot of snow, a snowman, and a reindeer [...]

I’m Rebellious!

sdfsdaf

I’ve never been much of a rebel. Never shoplifted as a teenager. Didn’t get drunk and vomit all over my parents while they were sleeping. Wasn’t courageous enough to light up a square in the high school bathroom. I do have a bathroom story, however. Once as a freshman nature called during civics class. I [...]

An Ode to Hot Sauce

There are some things in life that aren’t delightful; The outcomes are boring, or dreary and gray. They leave you with pain and make you feel spiteful, Like the time I got hot sauce on my penis one day. While eating nachos and some salsa I got, I realized my hot salsa needed more hot. [...]

Every kiss doesn’t begin with Kay.

No!

My husband proposed in front of a dog-doo sanitation unit. You know, the little stand they have in parks and on trails, with baggies and a trash can where you can stow poo? Yeah. He didn’t mean to, but when he got down on 1 knee along the trail where we had our first date, [...]

I Love My Job

Sunrise as I soak down the freshly graded powder.

I really do like getting up and going to work in the morning. Now. I wasn’t  always so eager, but I love coming out west in the winters and freezing in ice roads. I don’t know why. Before you get excited I’ll tell you that it’s not like on the show. This is a totally [...]

small__226481576

I’m about to change your life. Now, that’s a pretty bold claim. You are right to doubt. There’s a lot of sixes out there that have bumped themselves up to eights. With one simple move. Cosmetics? Liposuction? Facial reconstructive surgery? Nope. Wearing sunglasses makes you instantly hotter. Two points, to be accurate. How does this [...]

A Public Service Announcement From A Southern Curmudgeon

speaker_pump07-8262013

At the risk of developing a reputation for being the new ladybit-specific AL contributor, I’m going to break a cardinal rule and sub-blog. Yeah, I may have just made up that term. Deal with it. You know, like a sub-tweet, where it’s directed at a certain person (or people) but tact prevents you from specifically [...]

You’re An Adult So Start Texting Like It

Text

I had a text conversation today. It was actually a conglomeration of text conversations from several people so that my friends who text like that can pretend that it’s not about them. It’s totally about them. Every goddamn one of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love my friends, and just because they do things that [...]

Traditions, TRADITIONS!

In all its glory: The Barbie clock.

Ah, traditions. Those time-honored events our families take part in so we can remember holidays with our family. Some of them are recalled fondly and some we’d like to forget. However you feel about them, you have to admit you almost look forward to taking part in celebrations, right? In my family we’ve always done [...]
