good luck, chuck.

Happy Monday, folks!  It’s nice to see some sun after such a dreary, albeit warm weekend! I come to you today with a well-supported theory that my in-laws have an inconvenient truth attached to their traveling: If they are heading to or from Connecticut, one or more of their flights will be delayed and/or canceled, resulting […]

when a stranger calls…

May 9, 12:24pm It’s just about lunchtime & I’m about 88% of the way through 13 Reasons Why.  I’m at that point in the story where, if it were a book, it’d be so intensely gripping that I’d start skimming the pages, eyes glazing over anything even remotely resembling adjectives, thirsty for dialogue.  Unfortunately when […]

writer’s block & haunted condos

prosecco & podcasts

Happy 4/20!  My lunch consisted of cheese puffs and a fudge stripe, and I don’t even smoke weed. 💁🏻 In all seriousness though, happy Friday! Do you ever feel like the individual days drag, but the weeks and months overall seems to have flown by?  That’s how it feels over here in the Undomestic house […]
