Minchin Monday and Quiet Revolutions

Okay. This is a big, long, intense bastard so I'm gonna set you up with a funny, thoughtless Minchin offering first.   It's like a glass of orange juice for a diabetic before a snack free transcontinental flight. I'm assuming. Somehow I'm not diabetic yet, despite my love of potatoes, white bread, and pasta in … Continue reading Minchin Monday and Quiet Revolutions

Hanged Men and Roseanne is my Homegirl

This is a big, big day for me y'all. My homegirl is coming back. Roseanne is like my mascot. I grew up idolizing her. I wasn't raised in a family of loud women. The women in my family were quiet, and mostly well-behaved. They weren't weak. My mom definitely ran the show, I think, but … Continue reading Hanged Men and Roseanne is my Homegirl

Don't judge. The other one is this: https://youtu.be/UtEDvsxu0oo Just feels appropriate. There is plenty in Tupac's music that I … Continue reading Tarot Tuesday and Tupac Shakur

Tarot Tuesday and Shakespeare

  "O, swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon/ That monthly changes in her circled orb/ Lest that thy love prove likewise variable." I've always loved that line from "Romeo and Juliet." In terms of actual bibliography, "Romeo and Juliet" is not Shakespeare's strongest work, but there are a lot of lines that read … Continue reading Tarot Tuesday and Shakespeare

Hell to da Naw Naw and Wonderful Women

First of all, you guys, I discovered my new ringtone on YouTube last night. It's the chorus of this amazing song that I never knew existed but which has changed my life for the better and is now my personal theme song as well: This weekend was the 17th annual Women are Wonderful in Warren. … Continue reading Hell to da Naw Naw and Wonderful Women
