To be loved

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

I used to hate love songs. I didn’t always. Of course in junior high I couldn’t get enough of LL Cool J, New Edition, Prince, and Michael Jackson (in no particular order). My high school sweetheart and I used to give each other cards with the lyrics of mushy love songs written in them. Once, […]

Summer, Summer, Summertime

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

So what does summertime mean for us, married-with-kids, across 2 states?  For starters, it means great weather which means fewer flights and more road trips to get to each other.  It also means long, indulgent weeks booed up in the same place, sometimes with kids, sometimes without, though always with… It means Grillmaster TechBoo getting […]

“Please put down your hands…cuz I see you.”

“14 Karat Love/You Are My Jewel of the Nile…”

…when we make love, diamonds are forever.” “Bedroom eyes, headband to the si-ide…” They just don’t write lyrics like that anymore. I am officially old…school. Anyway. When I’m dragging in the morning, this always gets me going: And while I’m at it, here was my teenage-angst anthem. I once wrote all the lyrics in a […]

Ever been in a mood and just couldn’t find the right song on YouTube to reflect it? Yeah, that’s me right now, with laundry and deadlines looming, and missing my boo. So what’s a girl to do? I know…play the music we set our wedding video to! Peter Gabriel made this famous, but we love, […]

I get by with a LOT of help from my friends

Monday, March 8th, 2010

I’m fairly certain that I’ve posted a blog entry with this exact title before.  Because it’s true.  I’ve always been blessed with good friends, even though many times in my life I’ve nevertheless felt alone in the world.  After my mom, grandmother, and dad died in 2005, which coincided with the break up of my […]

Friday, March 5th, 2010

I love it when Baby Girl and Mini-Me get to spend time with TechBoo.  I get tired just watching them.  So much energy and joy. Thanks, as always, to El Ex for making this possible.  Because he acts like a grown up and doesn’t disparage TechBoo (or me, for that matter) to our girls, the […]

Anita Baker needs a nap

Friday, February 26th, 2010

It’s been one of those weeks…busy, but all good.  So many things on the radar, but I thought I’d post this sad story about TechBoo’s favorite singer, Mary J. Blige Anita Baker. Memo to Anita: I feel for you, but it’s never a good idea to piss off “exasperate” a judge. Anita Baker Could Face […]
