Wordless Wednesday: Love

fig heart

I love food. We are slowly breaking up and getting back together again. More about this coming soon.

Flashback Friday: Acting!

Tonight is the opening night of this season’s Expressing Motherhood, a stage show featuring people reading or performing their original work centered on the theme of motherhood. I’m 4th in a lineup of 12. I’m “performing” a piece I wrote that I think is pretty funny.

It’s the first time I’ve been on stage since the fall of 1994, when I was Annelle in a production of “Steel Magnolias” at the University of New Haven.

Then I moved to Los Angeles and basically never acted again. But! I got headshots. I thought you might enjoy my “Law & Order Deputy District Attorney” look.

So, in case you ever wondered what I have read over the last year or so (because I know you wonder even though you never ask) you should know that I am starting to keep track. I even made a page for it here on this site. Look! Up there! Next to “about me,” just click on “Books I Have Read.”

Whatever, I know it’s not super important information for anyone, even me, but it is fun to keep track. Also sometimes I write reviews and I will be linking them in that list, for people who are looking for something to read.


Songs That Stab Me in the Heart: “This Misery” by Wild Colonials

I don’t know what happened. I was washing dishes and the boys were making slime and I had hit “shuffle” on the iPod and suddenly it was 1998.

Watched your sad blue eyes light up
It’s Friday night, get all dolled up
And tonight
Maybe you’ll meet your man

Feel the pain so warm and tender
Even now I can still remember you

Incidentally, this album by Wild Colonials, an incredible group of artists, contains only good songs. Those were, and I suppose still are, quite rare. I suggest you check it out.
