I’m talking about lazy writing, specifically copywriting to drive sales. Specifically, sales for the elderly and infirm like me. Wait.

Salty over Facebook? What Are You Doing About it?
This post was going to be about Facebook bending us over in the trust department and Zuckerberg’s Facebooksplainin’ about how we allowed all they’ve done to us. ~friendly non-threatening face here~ He’s not entirely wrong. We willingly let him in, thereby signing up for our personal Brutification (et tu, Mark?), so it seems childish to… […]
How Do You Narrow “It” Down?
It’s late afternoon, I’m drinking a Corona, listening to the workers next door saw through their 100th piece of wood for the day, trying to put my thoughts together.

How Bad Do You Want It?
A few days ago I thought back to when I was pregnant. It was awful timing. I was newly married, poor as hell and living in a furnished apartment. As in, they owned the furniture, not me. Remembering those days, putting myself back in that tiny apartment, with no savings or furniture to my name, […]
Are You Hiding Your Authentic Self?
How many times have you questioned the value of being exactly who you are, in the exact measure that you are, because you were afraid of rejection? It feels like crap, doesn’t it? I want to tell you that I know how you feel because I’ve stood in that awful squinch-producing spot, too. That space […]

Thinking of Good Friday
My faith is the foundation of who I am. It defines me in so many ways and leads me in all things. Well, most things. I am human, I am a cussy sinner, after all. Easter week, Holy Week, is my favorite spiritual time of year. Following the path of Jesus, knowing what was to […]
