Jackson has gone from a dog that actively disliked close contact (growled and snapped) to one that absolutely demands it. He jumps on the bed and stretches, full-length on top of me, belly to belly. He likes to “share” the armchair with me, each of us wedging our seats into a corner and then overlapping […]
I wore a bandana around my neck all summer, folded into a triangle to protect my nape from the high altitude sun. When I was hot, I would wet it in a stream or with my water bottle and use the magic of evaporation to cool me down. The Clothes Horse inspired me to wear […]
I battling some hard core SAD. This winter has been our wettest and grayest, yet. The reservoirs are full but my energy is depleted. I need to recharge my batteries with some sunshine, please!

This morning, I had the pleasure of judging the Sacramento AAUW speech contest. Five high school students delivered speeches in response to the following prompt: Is it time to pass the Equal Right Amendment? If so, how can this be accomplished? How can organizations such as AAUW help in getting this amendment ratified once and […]

Charlotte the FBI Agent
Beefy and I have given up sugar and alcohol for the month. I spent the day drooling over the Valentine’s Candy all the kids were eating. It’s a rough month for such abstinence! Scarf, swap.

Fur the Animals
I had an audition in Stockton today for the part of an FBI agent in a short film. If I had realized that was the role I’d be reading, I would have dressed a little more FBI-agent-ish. Instead, I just dressed Kasmira-ish. Jacket, Avanti. Dress, Jovovich Hawk for Target. Shirt, BCBG Max Azria. Leggings, C9. […]
The Worst Grade
Did you know that ferrets are illegal in California? Or that stray, neighborhood cats are returned* to their place of origin after the shelter spays/neuters, vaccinates, and microchips them? Or that releasing your unwanted chicken into an existing, feral flock usually results in them being pecked to death? I suppose I didn’t need to know […]
I don’t know what’s worse: being a sixth grader at a K-6 elementary school or being a sixth grader at a middle school. I was the latter, but today’s students are the former. Either way, sixth grade just kind of sucks. Sweater, Express (consignment). Dress, swap. Tights, We Love Colors. Boots, Blondo. Sunglasses, Earthbound Trading […]
