Turtle Herding

If you’ve followed any of blogs for any length of time you know I don’t post on schedule. Sometimes I post on http://www.turtleherding.com and ignore this one for a while or the other way around.

If I’m not here for a while – you can check in with me at T/H or the other social media outlets that you have me on.


HDH – Hal Sparks

The first time I saw Hal Sparks was on a little show called Talk Soup. The “Chicken Clucker” bit cracked me up. Then as “Michael Novotny” on Queer as Folk (US).

LK and I saw Hal Sparks perform stand-up in Lexington, KY about 7 years ago. Not only was he funny – he handled two drunk women at the first table with deft and skill. “SHE NUN!!” As an added bonus his thoughts on UK fans and christians made my SIL very uncomfortable.
He was back in Lexington, KY last week doing some stand-up and I wish I could have been there. I know you kicked ass Hal.

Hal is also a rock star. Oh wait, you didn’t know? Check out ZERO1.


TBT – 1999

I have been thinking a lot about where my life would be and what it would be like. I would be doing research on a car for my soon to be 16 year old son. It is strange because I consider myself to be childfree and I always have, except for that blip in time. That moment when I felt movement and realized planned or not I was going to be a mother. Then just as I got used to the idea it was taken away – like some sort of cruel game of gotcha.

My dreams and my hopes for him, for us. Gone. Guilt for not wanting to be pregnant, sorrow for all of the what ifs to come.


This is the only picture I have of him.

This is how I am feeling today. I am tired of people and news and things. I need to unplug and let go.

I am mortified by the overwhelming ignorance that is running rampant in this country and I want to escape to a place of reason and calm.

Stupid people scare the shit out of me, especially the ones that don’t know they’re stupid. When I was 8 my Daddy taught me the difference between ignorant and stupid and I can handle ignorant – as long as there is a will to understand – but STUPID there is just no need for it.

Figgies & Jammies

I have had Pamela’s Products before and enjoyed them and I had been on the lookout for the Figgies & Jammies Cookies. Not having any luck in local shops I broke down and ordered a case of them from Amazon and crossed my fingers.

Yeah, these are keepers. Moist, not too sweet. So tasty.

… you know I will be trying the other flavors!
