*@%! Road Trash

I’m driving to work this morning, minding my own business, when I notice a monstrous bag skulking across the road. It’s one of those clear cellophane bags; the kind you get at the grocery store to hold your vegetables, only this one can probably hold the whole “Fresh Foods” section.…Continue Reading

Raquy Danziger Workshop

Saturday I took a workshop with Raquy Danziger of Raquy and the Cavemen. She’s touring for her latest album release, “Naked.” I’ve been looking forward to this workshop since before it was actually being offered with her busy touring schedule.

Easter Weekend

Spring hit northeast Georgia with a bang this year. The kind of bang where everything gets very uncomfortably hot just before a good week’s worth of freezing temperatures.

Odd Years are Bad

We celebrated Balthazar’s 3rd birthday today with friends and family. This birthday went very much like the 1st, but unlike the second. We decided that odd years are probably better handled alone. Balthazar, while not bad or angry, was certainly unsocial for his little soirée. At this rate, his 4th…Continue Reading

Yogurt Redemption

You’ll be delighted to know that Dannon, in response to Yogurt, You Deceptive Wench, is losing its plastic lid in favor of what appears to be environmental concerns, though is more likely a cost issue. Okay, so maybe it wasn’t my article that persuaded them. I’m at least happy that…Continue Reading

Corporate Musical Chairs

Last week, Carlos told me a story that was potentially blog-worthy. I didn’t blog about it because I felt that it needed to have personal frustration associated with it, rather than just his. What he didn’t tell me was that I would undergo the same treatment a few days later.…Continue Reading
