If You Fear Change, Try Embracing It . . . Around It’s Throat

Things, they are a-changin’! Not really the way I expected, but they are.  I skipped a week making a post . . . or was it two?  I don’t know, I’m too lazy to look at the date on the last post to figure it out.  Lazy?  Tired?  I just don’t care? Yeah, all of …

The Mid-Life Career Change Crisis

Sometimes I feel like I need to sit down and write something on here again and I get an idea.  I ponder it, come up with clever statements about it, form opinions and take in the opinions of others.  I toss the idea around in my head over and over again until finally, I decide …

Self-Induced Customer Service and Other Reasons I’m an Idiot

I may have mentioned in passing somewhere in my last post that I wrote like a year ago or two weeks or something like that, that I was about to embark on a temporary adventure into the rideshare experience. I’ve done it and this was my second weekend offering my personal vehicle to the drunk …

“Like a fucking angel but with curse words and prescription drugs”

Yep, that’s me! Quite possibly the greatest compliment I’ve ever received since starting this blog ever.  Left to me in a comment yesterday by the yet another new woman I am in love with, @RavingPleb at, of course, The Raving Pleb.  I was so touched I had to Tweet it immediately . . . and …

Jackshit Monday, how to get jackshit done!

It’s another Monday in Florida and my quest to make my niche here continues.  It’s Monday and by definition they are kind of supposed to suck, but this is kind of how every day goes for me around here lately, so if you want to know how the “day in the life of me” goes, …

This is the NEW new Opticynicism

The transition has been made and while some of you may still experience some problems over the next couple of days, the move has been made and the blog is no longer in the confining, clutching hands of WordPress.com. In truth, I’ve actually deactivated the wordpress.com site altogether.  Well, I didn’t deactivate it, I simply …

Goddammit, Denise!!

I hate pressure. It makes me succeed and shit, and I hate that. But the Deviant has been laying on the pressure and pointing out that I’ve been a dick and not posting since I got to Tampa as I said I would.  So now you know. “D” is Denise. She’s beautiful.  She’s funny.  She’s …

620 miles remain …. -ish

Current

And that’s where I stand on this cross-country adventure so far.  Over half of that was in Texsucks. I stated last night that I was going to shoot for Mobile, Alabama today. I didn’t make it.     Because, you know. Dallas.
